Pie Pushers
a Brick and Mortar joint

One more thing off of the list Durham needs to officially qualify as a city-fied, cultural hot spot: late night pizza. For oh so many years, late night diners, post 2am-ers, after the bar grubbers, have been confined to a single choice in Durham, Cosmic Cantina.

But, hark Durham, no more.

Pie Pushers to the rescue.

One of our favorite food trucks, one of the original food trucks (they predate the Food Truck Rodeo’s existence), now has a physical location on Main Street above The Pinhook.

All of the delicious slices from the truck have been carried forward. (And their delicious wings.) Better yet, they serve beer. Better yet, they stay open late night.

Lots of bottle options, too! Photo by Early Bird Photo

Most surprisingly (although not if you used to come kick it with the Pie Pushers on Sundays in front of Cocoa Cinnamon) they have an outstanding Brunch on Saturdays.

How good is the Pie Pushers brunch, you say?? Well, in this Southern foodie town of ours, the pizza peeps were the runner’s up in the Indy Week Best of, for Best Biscuits. That’s right, with all the biscuit makers and breakfast spots in Durham, the Pie Pushers biscuits were right at the top of the heap. And if you have ever tried’em, with good reason.
