Perfect ambience

A great old pharmacy, converted to a Soda Shoppe- very classic. Overall, the food is average, but the soda counter makes up for any average ratings, by being absolutely fabulous. The decor is unique- a really fabulous experience. Lovely family-owned place.

I ordered the buffalo wings which were ok and a Cesar salad, the salad if I was the chef would not of been served, it had brown all thru it, definitely not fresh romaine, my hubby ordered a burger, which sadly looked like a kid made, he also said it was not good tasting, for the price we would of...

My husband and I went to this place and we were surprised how amazing it is. It has an unique decoration with antiques and we like we traveled in time. The place is owned by a beautiful and welcoming family. Every time we go there we see the mom, dad, boys and the girls. We can tell it is a... More

I heard that the S&T had the original lasagna recipe from the Rathskeller in Chapel Hill so I had to try it again. Seemed exactly the same as just as before it's too cheesy for me. I'll get the Gambler next time and then some of the myriad of other sandwiches. Really good chocolate shake. Worth walking in if you... More

Like everybody else in North Carolina, we grew up going to Chapel Hill, NC and visiting the famous old Rathskeller Restaurant - getting the Gambler and their Lasagna. I've heard about these two dishes being on S & T's menu... so my family drove down to old Pittsboro, NC to check it out. First off, the building is an old,... More

Main street looked inviting and outside of S & T looked quaint and fun. Inside decor a hoot with old juke box, scale with lots of old interior lights and dishes. Ordered 1/2 VKT on sunflower bread and New England ckam chowder. Sandwich tasty, chowder BLT from a can. Rib eye steak sandwich flat-topped, but still a bit pink. Ordered... More

The ambiance is great with original old-fashioned Ice cream parlor/drug store soda fountain style. Their milk shakes are to die for! My husband is especially fond of their foot-long hot dogs. It is a very popular lunch spot with the locals and a real treat for visitors. They even have private back and upstairs rooms for larger groups and parties.... More

Wanted to try The Gambler dish after reading in Our State magazine about the effort they put into recreating this dish from Chapel Hill. It was very tasty (I never tried the original). My husband and I each ordered singles and it was just right. Comes covered with steak fries and two large slices of texas toast. We split a... More

I loved the atmosphere, very small town. The food was what you would expect of a Soda Shoppe, very good. This is family owned and very friendly staff.

We were told we really needed to try S and T, so we did. I had a hot dog with chips. It was so soggy that I could barely eat it. The flavor was good, but I gave up on much of it. My husband had a burger and said it was good, but not "the best ever." His sweet... More
