I've never had a bad experience here. The staff have always been pleasant and helpful. The location is great inside, though you do have to find it through a long entranceway near the CVS on Franklin Street. The food is fresh and incorporates an American menu that has some unique flares. The bar service is great and friendly, and there... More

We went to R&R on the night of the UNC vs. Duke game, so it was pretty crazy. Being out-of-towners we weren't really interested in the game and didn't realize that the restaurant has a different menu on game nights. When I heard there was a buffet I was worried because I'm a vegetarian, but there were several options and... More

The manager is the worst attribute, from the poor food, horrible wait time, and price. My sisters family was visiting from Atlanta last weekend and we went to lunch before they hit the road on Sunday. After waiting 15 minutes to order, we waited AN HOUR for our basic menu items. Total misery - I went twice to the manager.... More

I have been to R&R twice and we had a great experience both times. The first time, we had a party of 10 and they were able to accommodate us easily and the food and service was great. The next time, we ended up at R&R because the service at the Top of the HIll was so bad. The bartenders... More

The R & R Grill is at the end of the long hall as you walk into the CVS Plaza. I was concerned that there were only 4 other people in there. We split a white pizza and a cesar salad. The salad was good but even though the white pizza tasted good it was on the dry side. They... More

Robert was our server and he was excellent! He recommended burgers and fish and chips(they have other excellent choices too!). My husband had the Best Burger with fried egg, onion, fried jalepenos,cheddar cheese! It's laid back and casual right in the heart of Chapel Hill.

I went to Chapel Hill to move my daughter out from her dorm. Before we got started we decided to get a bite. It was raining so we ducked into this place - it was close. Ordered the fish tacos, it was bland and soggy, not good. The baked wings were ok. Significant Other had the Cesar Salad and daughter... More

This has become our favorite hangout in Chapel Hill. Conveniently located in the center of downtown Franklin Street, it is just a fun place. The bar is great, the food is wonderful (generous portions) and the owner is a genuinely good guy (Rob Moll). The club sandwich was HUGE and good, and the chicken salad sandwich was unique...also very good.

We were looking for a place to find a quick dinner before a concert on campus. Underwhelmed by the menu but my husband wanted to give it a try, large non descript dining area with bars inside and out and lots of TVs going with sports. Clearly not a place for dining so much as drinking and watching sports. I... More
