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

We sat outside on the deck to enjoy a wonderful lunch. The food was great and everyone enjoyed their meals. Service was good and quick. I will always go back to eat here.

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
