They've got buns, hun. They also have enormous servings of french fries (sweet potato fries too!) I like their veggie burgers, they have different buns to choose from (pretzel, whole wheat etc) various dipping sauces. Don't drive here, order from Tarheel Takeout or stop by...More

The ultimate place for a late night burger! You can customize your burger entirely. Even if your favorite ingredient is not on the menu then ask for it anyway. They might have it.

Simply put, "wow!" Online ordering, amazing burgers and a great selection. This is not your everyday burger joint. Looking for the best veggie burger around? This is your place! Looking for the best bacon, avocado artery blocker? Have at it! This is a Burger Heaven!

Buns offers lots of variety of burgers at decent price. Service is quick. However, none of the burgers really hit the spot. Carolina burger may be best of the lot.

The most disgusting thing i have ever attempted to eat. I ordered medium rare and got this grey, soft supposed meat product on a wet bun with the thinnest mushrooms one could make (if i could have stomached the grey meat).

Buns it's still my favorite restaurant in Chapel Hill. On my very first visit the guy took my order predicted I would eat the best burger ever. I thought to myself this guy seems really confident. But let me tell you he was 100% correct!...More

I would liken it to Five Guys Burgers and Fries. You order your burger as you walk in the door, there are some combo specials one for each day of the week (not sure about Sat and Sun though). They show you a list of...More

We had a very nice summer Thursday night dinner late at Buns. The menu is extremely well laid out on the wall, so a first-timer can custom design her/his burger quickly. After our order was placed, we grabbed a table; wait was about 8-10 minutes....More

Went around 8:30 on Saturday night. Menu is laid out clearly. Specialty burgers on the right. An ala carte type menu on the left. Order at the counter, take your number and they bring the food to you. I got bison. Thought it was well...More

One of the better burger places in Chapel Hill. Lots of options of toppings and condiments. I love the real feel of their sweet potato fries. Better than Al's in my opinion. More space too. Top This was better, but it closed down. :(

Think cafeteria style. Some tables, some booths. There's a long booth/banquette seating along the exterior wall - makes it easy to pull together tables for a large group, if desired. Be prepared to do this yourself; Mention... More
