http://newguidasrestaurant.com/ - 10″ hot dogs

This is up on Rt 66, over in Middlefield, or some other place than Durham, technically




Cozy Corner Cafe - good food, pizza is okay. It’s menu is fancier than the name lets on.
Gossip - local diner restaurant. I liked it, wife did not. UPDATE: it is gone, replaced with a fitness center!


Durham’s Kitchen - ate Sunday breakfast there. Friendly people, nice place, good food. Well, my omelet was bland (but they had run out of feta cheese). UPDATE: they’re gone, as well. Replaced with another restaurant. That also closed?!?! Not sure.


The Whole Enchilada - local chain (of about 3?) Burritos and Enchiladas, etc. Okay, and literally just down the street.

Olde Good Things - their main (?) restoration center and warehouse is in Scranton -- land is cheap, and it’s close enough to Philly and NYC... mmmm, sleepy sunday morning browsing
I’ve been meaning to get some more links in here. for.... years. I’ve since moved from Scranton, but have a soft-spot for browsing OGT.
