A fast food restaurant near the museum of history. The decor is fun and I had a very good chicken salad sandwich with fries. They are cooked to order and the prices were very reasonable.

I never thought that a museum would have such a wonderful burger place hidden inside! I was pleasantly surprised!!! Such a huge, juicy hamburger with just the right amount of toppings. Crinkle fries cooked to perfection, and a great deal when you add a drink!!

This is a great little short order diner near the legislature building and the NC Natural Science museum and NC History Museum. The burgers and dogs are great, and I enjoy the cheesesteak as well. They have a lot of other sandwich options as well....More

This is a cute little diner that I happened to find that was across from the museum of history. It was crowded the day I went which generally indicates it is good and it was, friendly staff, a little slow but worth the wait.

A delicious quick lunch to enjoy on your museum visit. Adjacent to the History Museum and within easy walking distance to the Science Museum, Pharaoh's is an excellent stop for lunch.
