Southern comfort food

Wow - what a fun restaurant with a retro feel. The waitstaff are very friendly and my family enjoyed the lunch selection and of course an amazing hot fudge sundae for dessert. Everyone that visits Pittsboro has to try S&T Soda Shoppe

S&T is a mid-20th century soda shop. The interior is vintage and it looks great. The food is merely OK - just burgers, grilled and fried stuff mostly - not bad but not great. Their desserts (milkshakes, floats, ice cream sundaes, etc.) are the real reason to go there, along with the ambiance. It's great for kids.

We drove to Pittsboro just to see what was there and stopped at the soda shoppe because of a friend's suggestion. We ordered the pimento cheeseburger, a malt milk shake, and fries. Truthfully, the burger and fries were about average, but the milkshake was delicious. Our server and the owner were some of the nicest people, and the decor is... More

We had a dinner at nearby restaurant and as we were walking to our car decided an ice cream would be a great end of the evening. We arrived with 5 minutes before closing but were welcomed and told there were no issue in our late arrival. The ice cream menu is extensive with numerous combinations of sodas, sundaes, shakes,...

This is a great place to visit and eat. We had lunch and really enjoyed it. Not only was the food good, the atmosphere was great. While waiting for our food we enjoyed the music from the 50's and 60's. We saw some awesome looking sundaes, but didn't get a chance to have one. This gives us a reason to... More

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
