Pergamon

Creedmoor’s Pergamon has opened a second location in Durham (3520 Hillsborough Rd.). 

outside

Pergamon is a mediterranean restaurant with an extremely varied menu (think Friday’s meets Italian with some Greek thrown in).  They have tons of beef, seafood, pasta, and pizza options.  They just opened on Saturday, so they are still working out the kinks, but overall it was a positive experience. The staff is extremely friendly, and they are definitely dedicated to making the place a success. 

pasta

This is the Olympia pasta dish, creamy sun-dried tomato pesto sauce with ziti pasta ($10.95).  It was one of the more flavorable pasta dishes I have had in Durham, including at the high-end places.  The price includes one trip to the salad bar. Recommended. 

gyro

The gyro was good, and definitely worth the $6.95.  I think I prefer the gyro at Satisfaction’s, though.

This place is worth stopping by if you are in the area and looking for affordable eats.  Especially if you are eating as a family, there will almost certainly be something on the menu for everyone.  Most of their menu items are available for take-out.

  1. I had the Mediterranean Pizza today. It was VERY good. Thin, light crust turned up around the edge with a sprinkle of sesame seed on the edge. This is a white pizza, no tomato sauce, lots of garlic, feta, spinach. I believe it was $9.95.

  2. I went there last week.

    The kid’s pizza was excellent.

    The adult pizzas on the other tables looked good.

    My wife had the fettucine alfredo which was much better than I expected.

    I had a burger which was fine but the fries weren’t great.

    The salad bar was small but nice.

  3. The wife and I went to Pergamon a couple of weeks ago. Server apologized for their just getting started, but we had no complaints. Portions were generous, food well done, clam chowder outstanding. Only quibble was tails left on shrimp and a few stray pieces of chicken in my wife’s seafood dish. We will definitely go back.

  4. We were out Sunday at lunch, looking for a place to eat. I remembered that Carpe had given Pergamon a favorable review and decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, I totally forgot about your line “think Friday’s meets Italian with some Greek thrown in.” That is a very accurate description (minus all of the TGIF flair). Has there ever been anything worth eating at a Friday’s ?

  5. Correct answer: Yes — mozzarella sticks while hungover.

  6. Had the chicken parm, it was AWFUL. The chicken was like rubber and extremely chewy. The pasta that accompanied it was tasty and salad was good. I requested a different dish it was that bad, which they did without complaint, ended up with pizza, AWESOME! Overall good experience, would go back but never get the chix. parm!

  7. My wife and I had the lasgna today, and it was superb. Very tasty. Nice salad bar, one trip included. Prices reasonable. Our waitress was very efficient, attentive, and very friendly. Definitely will go again…soon.
