Dine Southern-style at Tucker Duke’s gastropub


Tucker Duke’s is a “southern style gastro pub,” famous for its burgers and its Tucker Duke Sauce. They also have sandwiches and entrées such as shrimp and grits, jambalaya, and chicken and waffles.


It is a relatively small space with some outside seating. Inside has a hipster, industrial feel, complete with high-top tables, metal stools and handwritten chalk boards. It it’s the perfect place for friends to grab a burger and few beers.


All the burgers (except the original Tucker Duke Burger) are customizable. If you are a big fan of cheese and bacon, the Gran Dada ($12) is the one to pick. It has smoked Gouda, bacon, chipotle mayo, fried leeks and maple bacon onion chutney. Add the Tucker Duke Sauce for an extra kick of flavor. If you want to stick to the classic, go with the Tucker Duke ($12). It has (huge) fried onion rings, American cheese, Tucker Duke Sauce and a spring and tomato mix. Don’t worry vegetarians, the Sami ($10) is meat free! It is a falafel with whipped feta, pickled vegetables, cilantro and spring mix and tomato. The burgers are al la carte, so be sure to pick your sides. The sweet potato fries ($4) and the pimento mac & cheese with bacon ($4) are tasty and popular.


The prices are awesome, and the burgers come in combinations you’re unlikely to think of on your own. The atmosphere is enjoyable and relaxed. Plus, they a nice selection of craft beer from local and national breweries.


The service was very fast and attentive. Our drinks were always filled, and we didn’t wait long between appetizers and the meal.


Quiet to average, as the restaurant began to fill.


Kids are welcome, but not their strollers (as you will see a “joke” on their chalkboards). Perhaps it’s due to the restaurant’s small space. In any case, they have an average size kid’s menu with burgers, chicken nuggets, corn dogs and more.
