We stopped here for lunch after hearing we could not visit Chapel Hill without visiting. We could not have been more disappointed with our experience at this restaurant. The establishment did not look cleanly at all. The food was disgustingly oily.. the French fries tasted...More

Neat to walk in and seeing the pictures of people calling "Time Out". We had the chicken cheddar biscuit and really enjoyed it. Neat place to stop for a quick bite on the UNC Campus.

When I first visited Chapel Hill 30 years ago, I was taken to Time-Out. I recall that the chicken biscuit with cheese was amazing (at least that is what I recall). I recently visited CH and sought out Time-Out to relive that moment. I was...More

Just as advertised, the chicken and cheddar biscuit is the real deal! Huge and definitely splittable but be selfish and get one all for yourself. A chicken breast pulled form a whole chicken, not your typical chicken biscuit. Add a little hot sauce and you’re...More

I visited for breakfast and had the famous chicken cheddar biscuit. It's HUGE! The biscuit and chicken could stand in their own but together, they're hard to beat. The owner happened to be there when I stopped in, and it's a staple for those who...More

The cheddar cheese 'n chicken biscuit is huge and filling. Tasty as well. I would like to know the history: which came first - the infamous time-out called during the Michigan vs UNC national championship game OR did the restaurant just adopt this after the...More

Pretty standard, not good for you/hangover/college type food. It's been in Chapel Hill for ever, though moved to this new location a few years ago with the development of some new condos in their old location. It's a walk up and order type place where...More

Was great years ago, but my last visit earlier this year was sadly disappointing. I recommend Rise Biscuits in Carrboro instead.
