“We are officially closing the doors at 3 p.m. on Sunday,” said Buck Dickerson, owner of the 24-hour diner that has been serving the Bull City for more than 50 years.
I have eaten at Honey’s exactly once in my 7 years living in Durham. I found it to be exactly as expected, and noted that it was a good option if I ever were to wake up at 3 a.m. with an inexplicable appetite for grease. Sadly (or happily), no such scenario has occurred, and now that Honey’s is leaving I’m not entirely sure what I’ll do if and when the inevitable does happen.
So, hey – this seems like a market opportunity. Who wants to step up to the plate and start a 24-hour diner? Maybe hire a good executive chef and up the ante a bit? I bet I’d partake in that.
