Stopped in to try them out. The BLT's were good. Ordering was a bit different. You enter and order in a little alcove, then you have to go to the other end of the store and pay and then back in another line to pick up your order. They have a few tables inside but there is a patio out front and one in the back as well. They have additional parking across the street.

After seeing the lines outside of the restaurant decided to stop. We ordered double layer bacon tomato lettuce sandwiches on bread made nearby (The Bread Shop, Pittsboro, NC). Mid-meal we decided we could have shared the sandwiches due to their size! We ate outside under the trees and enjoyed the fresh air.

This is just a take out place in a converted gas station but they use gourmet ingredients and yummy breads. They have 3 levels of BLT sandwiches.... BLT, BBLT and BBBLT. I had a BLT and it had more yummy bacon than ever! More than enough for a great sandwich. But if you long your pig you can get more and more bacon. Behind the store is lovely concert venue in the trees with picnic tables. Very peaceful and great for kids to run around safely.

Merritt's' BLT's are legendary. This was my first visit there. They use lots of bacon,and ripe tomatoes. Lots of non-traditional add-ons are available (guacamole, pimento cheese)' but I stuck with the classic formula.

Meritts is very busy at lunch, but they keep things moving. There is not a lot of seating inside, but the outdoor seating is nice and shady.

I had great banana pudding for dessert. They have great sweet iced tea (fresh lemon slices), Coke fountain products and lots of bottled drinks, including some beers.

Sometimes simple is what you need. OK, its no longer just a deli in the quaint store and the post-mod owners probably will mess it up eventually when they become full-on greed heads. But it still has excellent BLT's, not as large as the mammoth, hurts to open so wide, ones of yester year. Great combo with a cold "hot" ginger beer. Cultural remnant of the old Chapel Hill.
All the best. G
