“Nice Mediterranean Pockets - Best for Lunch or Take Out”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

Pauly's Pockets is located in a former small older store front on Main Street in Durham. Parking is very limited along Main Street in Durham, even on a mid Saturday, so you many have to drive around a bit to find a parking spot.

Pauly's Pockets has about six small tables in a rather small area in front of the ordering counter. The interior is sparse. Pauly's has a limited menu, offering about 6 different appetizers, salads and a number of pockets, either vegetarian or grilled. I choose the Falafel pocket and my wife ordered the turbo pocket.

The pockets are made in front of you subway style. I was a little disappointed that Pauly's did not offer any choices in pockets, and that the pockets were not homemade. Our server was very pleasant.

The pockets were large and flavorful,but not outstanding. Given the limited seating, and sparse interior, Pauly's is best for lunch or tske out.

“Turbo Pocket = Yum”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

This place is clean, fresh, and a great alternative to all the greasy pizza places in Downtown Durham. The turbo pocket is huge and doesn't disappoint!

“Interesting choice, loved it!”
Reviewed 9 April 2010

Well not knowing much about falafel (spelling?) I was eager to try it. Its got a distinct taste, that my son apparently loved. He got the chicken one, we split it because they are massive.

Short and sweet, its good food, college grub. Worth a try if you've never had it!

“Great food, wonderful service”
Reviewed 27 September 2009

I love Pauly's Pockets. The food is excellent, and the staff is very friendly. The chicken pocket with Pauly's special spicy sauce is my favorite, and is a must have everytime I go to Durham.
