“Great local place for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

My husband loves to go to Virlies where he can get a wonderful omelet for a reasonable price; lots of local customers who know each other adds to the local atmosphere. Lunch and dinner menu is extensive with local chef adding special dishes on a daily basis.

“Local diner...mediocre”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Love that this place is a local diner-type establishment, right on the main strip of charming, diminutive Pittsboro. Service was staid but efficient. Menu was fairly large. But the food was not that good. Burger was bland and dry. Side salad was a joke. Bathrooms are kinda dirty. Just cannot recommend.

“Great Place to Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Varied menu. Local hometown flair. Steak night Friday is fantastic. Great breakfast. If you liked "Cheers" for a bar. You will love Virlies for good eats.

“Best steak in Chatham County”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Hit Virlie's on a Friday night for the best ribeye in the county, or go early any morning but Sunday for breakfast at the counter with all the local characters. Don't be surprised if one waitress takes your drink order and another brings your drink; everyone seems to work every table to insure prompt and thorough service. Don't come here for the atmosphere, which is definitely country-diner-from-what-must-have-been-a-bar-at-one-time (phew!) but for the good food and service. Always crowded, often a wait for a table, but worth it.

“Great Soups & Breakfasts & MORE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a regular stop for me and especially my husband at breakfast. But at lunch the soups are outstanding and there are daily lunch specials. Weekends they grill steaks & salmon
