Ninth Street in Durham

Just looking at this week's Indy, and there's an ad for Blue Corn Cafe which describes itself as the "oldest locally owned restaurant on 9th Street." This got my hubby and I to trying to figure out if this is true...are they really older than George's Garage and Elmo's? I'm sure that Bahn's has been around for longer. And probably International Delights?

Wondering if anyone has a better memory for the chronology than me.

      I think MG opened in 1988 so I'd say Blue Corn's claims are wrong/false. They also claim to be Durham's only Latin-American restaraunt? Really?

      Not sure how long Bahn's or the Ketchup Nazi have been around but I'd say longer than Blue Corn.
