Even tho Chapel Hill is a "foodie" town, I always find myself at Med. Deli. The menu is incredible with many various offerings, the food is very fresh and genuine. The atmosphere is v. casual and happy.

Med Deli is great. The food is always delicious. It is very reasonably priced and the portions are generous. It is a very community minded business. They do a lot of charity work and I love supporting independent restaurants that are invested in the community.

This unpretentious deli across the street from UNC has an incredible assortment of the most amazing tasting Mediterranean dishes. The staff is helpful. It is always busy here. You don't want to miss this place.

Absolutely. Just push the small tables together. It might be worthwhile to mention to one of the restaurant staff your intentions. Or phone them beforehand just to give them a heads up. They might be willing to set it up... More
