“Topo's less exciting mini-me”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

R&R is just fine--food is fine, service is so-so, atmosphere is par for Franklin Street. But they might have at least attempted to go a different route than Top of the Hill, which is a stone's throw away with a slightly better menu, better table service, and a far better view/patio/atmosphere.
When we walked in, we were blown away by how similar it is to Topo, from the outside table tops to the uniforms to the patio layout. But the fact is, it just doesn't measure up--literally. The half-story view is of a parking lot and homeless shelter!
Should have tried something completely different and saved itself the obvious comparisons to its predecessor.

“A Restaurant during the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

Don't go late at night unless you are a student - but earlier in the evening and during the day it's a really nice restaurant - studenty feel to it - but it brings you into the zone

“Delicious and fun appetizers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

We stopped in for appetizers and wine . . . delicious and very appropriate wine suggestions. Appetizers were delicious. They offer a humus and pita bread appetizer . . . . they bring out humus and various fresh additives such as olives, peppers, almonds, greens, etc . . .you mix your own to taste! The shrimp was delicious as well as the zuchinni and edamane dishes. Will go back again. Strongly recommend.

“Great gameday spot in downtown Chapel Hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2011

This is a great spot to get food and relax pregame or postgame that is conveniently located. The food variety is good if you are looking for either a sandwich/burger or if you want a regular meal. Excellent beverage selection and spacious. We found this in 2009 when looking for a place to eat with our family, which included two young children. We wanted to go somewhere within walking distance to the football game for the kids without tightly crammed tables. There are multiple TVs in the indoor area and outdoor patio, so you can watch other games. We have returned several times and it has been more crowded as word has spread, but the quality has remained good and it is a good value. I have had the salmon, a hamburger and a steak there and would not hesitate to recommend any of these.
