Price display is not even accurate. It showed $9.99 and $10.99 for plate meals. Was charged near $16. IF you can't advertise prices clearly and then overcharge from what was displayed then you're not looking out for the general public. First and Last time going.

After seeing Time-Out on Man vs. Food many years ago, and having a co-worker rave about it from his time at UNC, i knew I had to give it a try while in the Chapel Hill area on vacation. My wife and I were just...driving around the area looking at the sites, and happened upon the beautiful UNC Chapel Hill campus. The next thing I knew, we were next to Time-Out and thought it was fate. We were planning on getting lunch there later, but since we were right there.... Ordered the Chicken and Cheese Biscuit. Simply amazing. The size is large. The biscuits are buttery and flaky. The chicken is moist and crispy. Makes me wish I had attended UNC Chapel Hill so that this was a staple. Wanted to try everything on the menu, but that was not an option this time. If we are ever back in the area, we will definitely come back.More

What a great meal we had at Time Out Chicken. We ordered the white meat chicken plate. 2 fried chicken breasts just out of the cooker. Crispy and so juicy. It came with 2 sides. They have nice selection but we got the mashed potatoes...and gravy and the green beans, yummy. It also came with a big fluffy biscuit. A very delicious lunch for 2. I definitely recommend this place and it’s open 24 hours a day.More

Visited after quarantine lifted and school was not in session, so it was pretty dead in Chapel Hill, but loved our visit! Enjoyed looking at all the photos on the walls of athletes who have visited. Chicken biscuit sandwich is HUGE! One will definitely fill...you up. Only complaint was although they make it fresh, they wrap it in foil and it steamed the biscuit a little and it started to fall apart while eating. Sides was delicious!! Mashed potatoes and especially the green beans--better than Mamaw's!More

It was a little later at night so many places were closed and unfortunate for my party, I was hooked on the thought of having fried chicken. We ended up at Time Out because it was open. The chicken was cooked and juicy, which was...good. The skin was soggy and the pieces had definitely been sitting around for a while since they had been cooked. I God mac and cheese as a side which tasted like stouffers so the sign on the wall that said they take pride in making everything homemade gave my husband and I a chuckle. The mashed potatoes were ok. I'm guessing this place is in business because they are open 24 hours and right near the college. While we were eating a part of me was expecting chef Ramsey to stand up, start taking off his disguise and tell everyone to stop eating. The staff we interacted with seemed friendly enough. I see the potential of this place, just needs a facelift and a refocus on quality.More

The chicken and cheese biscuit at Time Out is a top 5 “last night of my life” food item. After many years of eating them back in school at UNC, I wondered if they could still be as good. The answer is a resounding yes!!...They basically take a fried chicken breast, pull the breast meat right off the bone the minute you order, and place it on a fresh baked biscuit (with melted cheese). It’s notable that they’ve been awarded the best fried chicken in Chapel Hill numerous times before - so no secret why it tastes so ridiculously good! Anyway, if you’re in Chapel Hill and want to have the best biscuit ever (and experiment a true UNC CH tradition at the same time), do yourself a favor and order a chicken and cheese biscuit from TIME OUT!!More

Location is right at UNC. The chicken biscuit was excellent. The chicken was succulent. I can't wait to visit again.

Visited on our road trip because we saw it on tv, food was amazing. The lady taking care of us was beyond rude. Makes a bad impression on the entire business.

I've been talking about Time Out chicken biscuits for decades since my time at UNC so much so that, during a visit to NC for a wedding, I brought him there. The place has moved to a new place on Franklin St and the decor...was something to be desired, but you're not there for the decor. The chicken biscuit was huge, fluffy, and so packed with southern charm, we could not believe that it was for $5. We compared this to the dinky chicken biscuits at Chick Fil A and wished Time Out was franchised across the country. It's not the cleanest, fanciest, or healthiest but it is one of the best value biscuits you'll ever find.More

We came here after a night out, because we heard it was “such a great place.” We had never been before so we had questions and wasn’t sure what we wanted. The person fixing our food seemed to be beyond annoyed. We ordered chicken wings,...various sides and one person ordered the infamous chicken biscuit sandwich. The chicken, mashed potatoes, and black eyed peas were all average. My friend did say her Mac and cheese was very good. The 3 stars is really for the cashier who was very kind but the food was 2 stars at best. If for some odd reason I were to return, it would be to try the chicken biscuit because that’s impossible to mess up.More

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...as if they were still in the fryer amongst all the oil. The biscuit was bland and dry. I felt so sick the rest of the day that i had to lie down. Overall we had a terrible experience and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.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.

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