I am in love with All People Grill (6122 Guess Rd). I have been trying to go to this restaurant/bar/blues club out in the middle of nowhere for at least 6 months, but it seemed to be perpetually closed. Last night they finally opened for a show by Cool John Ferguson. It was a really great time.
All People Grill is basically three rooms — a kitchen with 3 tables and some stools, a medium sized room with a bar where people dance and stand, and a small room where the band sets up. It has been open since 1952.
The show was $15, and beers were $3. Cash only. At around 11:30 we got very hungry, and luckily the kitchen was still going strong. We treated ourselves to a 1 (bbq chicken) and 3 (mac & cheese, peas, beans) for $6. It hit the spot.
The staff was great, and the patrons were a very diverse bunch that loved to dance. Rumor is they will start opening again on a regular basis, but I wasn’t able to get any firm information. If they regularly open the bar, I will without a doubt become a regular. I am convinced that everyone living in Durham should catch a show here at least once.
