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.
