Pharaoh's at the Museum

Located just inside the Jones Street entrance to the museum, across from the Legislative Building, Pharaoh’s @ the Museum serves a variety of fresh and homemade favorites with a southern flair.

Whether you have a hot dog topped with fresh-made slaw, a dab of mustard, or some hearty made-from-scratch chili, an “eastern North Carolina” hamburger, or a sandwich stuffed with Pharaoh’s famous chicken salad, every item is carefully made to order. Pharaoh’s @ the Museum also features salads and a soup of the day, milk shakes, floats, and sundaes. 

Eat-in and carry-out service is available for regular customers. And, ask about daily specials! Independently owned and operated, a percentage of Pharaoh’s revenue is donated to support the museum.


Custom box lunches are available for tour groups, business meetings, and other functions with a 24-hour advance notice. A selection of brown bag lunches can be arranged for school groups with a two-week advance notice; school groups must eat outside the restaurant and the museum. Phone 919-807-7879 for information.
