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

Dropped in before WFU game because wanted to watch some 3:30 pm games on TV. Got there at 5:00 pm and they said it was a 30 min wait or we could sit at the bar. Easy call, go sit at the bar. Same menu and good service. We had a great bar tender and he said it would be... More

Let's be honest, R & R Grill is a sports bar. Tucked inside the CVS Plaza in Chapel Hill, at first glance, it seems to be a stand-alone venue for the Saturday football crowd before or after a Tarheel game. However, to our surprise, decided to dine on a Sunday after a theater performance. Lunch is served until 4:00 PM,... More

We enjoyed the meal, Ribs were good and the salad entree was fresh and enjoyable. The place has little character, bar and wide open dining area. We were there in Early June after UNC graduated so things were slow. Waiter was friendly and service was fine.

The quality of the food was excellent. We enjoyed the meal. There were several issues that make me give this only an average overall rating. The waiter was very inexperience even after having worked there for over 3 months, not offering choices on side dishes, slow at bringing beverages to table and taking away dishes without asking permission. He also... More
