Great spot for casual fare and watching games

Dropped in before WFU game because wanted to watch some 3:30 pm games on TV. Got there at 5:00 pm and they said it was a 30 min wait or we could sit at the bar. Easy call, go sit at the bar. Same menu and good service. We had a great bar tender and he said it would be... read more

We were looking for a place to find a quick dinner before a concert on campus. Underwhelmed by the menu but my husband wanted to give it a try, large non descript dining area with bars inside and out and lots of TVs going with sports. Clearly not a place for dining so much as drinking and watching sports. I... More

Let's be honest, R & R Grill is a sports bar. Tucked inside the CVS Plaza in Chapel Hill, at first glance, it seems to be a stand-alone venue for the Saturday football crowd before or after a Tarheel game. However, to our surprise, decided to dine on a Sunday after a theater performance. Lunch is served until 4:00 PM,... More

We enjoyed the meal, Ribs were good and the salad entree was fresh and enjoyable. The place has little character, bar and wide open dining area. We were there in Early June after UNC graduated so things were slow. Waiter was friendly and service was fine.

The quality of the food was excellent. We enjoyed the meal. There were several issues that make me give this only an average overall rating. The waiter was very inexperience even after having worked there for over 3 months, not offering choices on side dishes, slow at bringing beverages to table and taking away dishes without asking permission. He also... More

Good location downtown chapel hill. The staff were super friendly and accomadating. It was a slow monday night as the students were mostly gone for spring break. The food was good, not the best I've ever had, but I would go back. The prices were definitley reasonable, and the atmosphere was laid back and comfortable.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed brunch yesterday at the R & R Grill. The breakfast pizza and crab cakes Benedict were terrific and there was a nice selection of craft brew on tap. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. There is parking in both a surface lot and parking deck just behind the restaurant. We will be back!

I saw this place on living social and bought the voucher. I didn't have high expectations because all the groupon and living social places have gone down hill. This place was very clean and modern. The service was very good and the clientele was friendly. Drinks were reasonably priced. They have daily drink specials and a lunch menu. I had... More

We were visiting Chapel Hill for a football game and decided to stop for lunch before the game. So glad we did! We had a great meal..pizza, burger, chicken bites and club sandwich. Outstanding! Burger request was medium well but came medium rare :( but was delicious esp with the b-bqe sauce. Sweet potato fries were fantastic. Friendly staff..great food..

I knew when I was craving shrimp and grits, I should have gone to Spanky's--but my husband was excited to see ribs on the menu posted outside, so I didn't argue. There was a band playing there later that night, so when we got to the door and told the two people collecting the cover that we just wanted food... More
