If you were fortunate enough to have eaten at the former Ramshead Rathskeller in Chapel Hill (R.I.P), then you know what I'm referring to when I say "the Gambler". It was this amazing skirt steak, marinated in spices and a touch of red wine vinaigrette...then grilled to perfection on an iron flat-top griddle. It was so wonderful...it gives me "goose... More

A nice spot to have lunch. The ice cream sundaes are amazing - a great treat for little kids who've never seen something like that. Very good American fare and service with a smile from local students. A really pleasant spot to sit and enjoy the surroundings-- and your food!

If you are just passing through Pittsboro or there to do some antique shopping, you really should check out S & T Soda Shoppe. As soon as you walk through the door you've been transported back in time. My husband always gets the grilled ham/cheese sandwich or the grilled chicken salad sandwich. I always get the grilled cheese or the... More

This was a great place to have lunch. The decor was worth it by itself. I ordered the meatball sandwich and sweet potato fries. The fries were scrumptious. The real draw had to be the banana split. Two scoops per flavor (6 total), topped with a boat load of whipped cream. You had better request 3 spoons!

It was awesome as usual, excellent shakes and food. The only problem we had is one of our group (of 4) ordered the vegetable sandwich. Everyone else got their food and the waitress stated that they had to run out to get cucumbers for the vegetable sandwich. No one should have gotten our food until all food was prepared. No... More

As I walked into this ice cream parlour, it was like walking back in time - so delightful; the Waltons came alive, complete with 'wurlitzer'! I indulged in a sundae with fantastic cheesecake ice cream which I have to say beat me - my eyes were bigger than my stomach!! Lovely staff; great sundaes; glorious ice cream and a fantastic...

Lunch with 5 year old was successful as her BLT was delicious and the ice cream cold and tasty. The accompanying family members also enjoyed their sandwiches with chips that were so filling we did not have room for ice cream but the choices are so many it would have been difficult. It appeared there were many locals enjoying lunch... More

There's no words to describe this place! Absolutely amazing! The atmosphere makes you feel like you're back in the old days and has such a classic background. Vicki is the sweetest woman ever! She's so friendly and is always smiling, she makes everyone feel so welcomed! The food here is just amazing, I've been coming here for many, many years.... More

That's what I really like here. They're huge and delicious and a lot less pricey than at most places in our area. I also had really good lasagna here once--fresh and hot and over-the-top cheesy. As you might be inferring from reading this, I wouldn't say it's the place for health food. But it's a very fun source of ice... More

Gene and Vicky, the owners of S&T's have an excellent restaurant. One of my favorite meals is the Bankers chicken salad. If you celebrate a birthday, Vicky asks all of the patrons to join in singing Happy Birthday while serving up a monster ice cream sundae. The atmosphere is that of the old dairy bar that was located there many... More
