“Newly opened; used to be the General Store Cafe.”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Grand opening was August 17, 2012. We dined with them the next night, a Saturday, and they were very, very busy. I'm sure that's why the service left a good bit to be desired, and that by now the 'kinks' have been worked out. Besides, we were a party of nine, which makes it difficult to have all meals coming out simultaneously. On the really good side, the food and the menu are awesome, very unique items as well as old favorites, and the environment is delightful. There's a sofa-and-easy chair area while you wait, with a TV; there's a smaller front room and a huge back room with a bar. I had an excellent burger; the menu features chicken and fish items and some unusual new offerings. I will definitely go back and I'm sure the glitches in service have been resolved.

“A new inside decor with a fabulous new menu and flavors to match!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

8 yrs and counting; Pittsboro a special community for our day trips from Fuquay Varina. On our most recent visit we made a point to stop in at the newly renovated Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store. We were surprised by the new look and fell in love with the art deco reception desk. As we looked over the new menu with so many choices, we noticed great service being provided to the customers and the same relaxing feel of the old days. We were not disappointed when our Portabella sandwich with melted blue cheese / fish taco with Cole slaw as a condiment with lots of chips and a pickle arrived. It's always been on our list to share with visiting friends and family. Eager for a return visit for another great meal. Great food brings great customers, it is still "come as you are" and lots of seating available.
