I was settling a "best Franklin St burger" debate for a couple of coworkers, and this place was one of the contenders. It's a design-your-own burger place with a LOT of options, but they have designed a menu that keeps the options from being overwhelming. Although there are a lot of options, the wall chart makes ordering very straightforward. The... More

From burgers, to hot dogs, to grilled cheese - this place has a decent selection for being the local burger joint. Fries are great - they even have the sweet potato fries. Milk shakes are good too. They even have bottled beer. Can't go wrong here. It is a come-as-you-are kinda place. Parking is across the street in the town... More

Went in June when we visited UNC with my daughter. That visit was excellent. They were not that busy at the time, burgers were very good. We returned on July 4th for the fireworks. Again the burgers were good but not as good as first visit. They were very busy so some tables were not cleaned and there were people... More

his is trendy, colorfully decorated, simply furnished little burger joint sits half a block off Franklin Street. The menu is simple - Burgers (3 sizes to choose from), Hot Dogs (1 size only), FF, a Grilled Salmon Sandwich (it is Chapel Hill after all), a Grilled Chicken Sandwich (and it is in Orange County), and a Caesar Salad (and it...

Kitchen is in full view and it really is the focal point. Adequate eating area, but we got take-out. Fun atmosphere. Lots of people having a good time. Limited menu, but what they do have is great. Actually we only got burgers, but we did see the orders as they went by. They have a chart on the wall which... More

We liked the burgers but fries tasted like they had been cooked then reheated. Nothing special about the Place to run back to .

A great assortment of toppings for your burgers. They are a bit greasy, but most good burgers are! Buns gives you a huge amount of fries (sweet potato for me!) and they are soooo good.
