I agree with the person who said this is one of Chapel Hill's best kept secrets. The food is quite exceptional--especially for a place that you'd expect to serve typical bar food. I ordered the fish and chips as an entree and they were very, very good. My wife's fish tacos looked great, as well. All-in-all, a lot of pride... More

I was disappointed base on most reviews. Maybe I set the mark to high for this restaurant. The place was dead at 7 pm ( 3 or 4 tables of customers).Being a solo guest Oliver acted as I was taking away from more important things. Service was lacking would be a good term. I choose the Shrimp and Grits and... More

This was my first trip to Chapel Hill and I wasn't sure where to go for dinner. I was visiting with my daughter who had just moved to Chapel Hill only a week earlier to take a job at UNC. We were wondering down Frankilin Street which runs right through UNC, decided we were hungry and my only requirement was... More

Our last 3 visits have been a disappointment!!! We used to go here for burgers because they use fresh ground meat and are among the few in CH that will cook to order, however each time we ordered medium rare the burgers have come out BROWN. They are willing to "re-do" but man, when you are hungry you are hungry.... More

I'm sorry to hear about your recent experiences with our Burgers. The chef and I have taken measures to ensure that our fresh ground burgers are of the highest quality and consistency. As for the Veggie Burger, the original is still on the menu just under a different name as "Roasted Portobello and Veggies". There has always been such a... More

Used to love coming up here for Franklin Street Pizza, but they have since closed. Saw the sign for R&R Grill, so thought we would give it a try. I am glad I did! There are several lunch specials, you can do a half sandwich and soup or salad for 7.95, which is a good deal. I had the tomato... More

My husband and I had dinner here last night for the first time. It was a nice night, so we ate outside-big beautiful patio. Our server, Matt, was personable, friendly and knowledgable. I asked for entree suggestions and ordered the shrimp and grits. It was delicious! My husband liked his fish and chips. Very nice dining experience! Will def go... More

If you are lucky enough Matt will serve you. A true professional bartender who has tended bar across country and brings some truly innovative drinks to the specialty cocktail menu. Try the sweet potato martini. Tastes like sweet potato casserole at Christmas.

We walked up and down Franklin looking for a good place to eat. We went in here on a fluke and we were blown away. We had the Chicken Pesto sandwich and the Chicken Pesto Pizza. Both were excellent! The beer selection here is also very good. I recommend the golden monkey!

I love R&R. The food is great - pizza, chicken tender, ribs, 3-way-salad, etc. I've been here multiple times and for some reason I always see a new waiter/waitress but service was always amiable. It also has free wifi - good place to get some work done during the afternoon.
