A tucked-away gem, TRU offers a healthy meal, interesting brews, and good wines for a fair price. The ambiance and relaxed feel with indoor or outdoor comfortable seating is perfect. I personally love the wooden tables and seats. One star was deducted because of an incorrect order (which we chose not to discuss and ended up being good anyway), outdoor... More

I like Tru's food. It should be a great, convenient lunch spot with relaxing outdoor seating. The service, however, is terribly slow and unresponsive. Every time I've gone, I've waited at least 30 minutes for a sandwich, which is very difficult to do during a lunch break from work. Today, one person in my party was served meat on a... More

We didn't know what to expect. It is cute and casual but they only offer sandwiches, bagged chips and canned drinks. I think 1 sandwich with chips and drink was $10.50. You pay your order on an iPad and pay then wait for your sandwich. They do offer salads but no one in our party got one.

We were in Chapel Hill for my sons graduation at UNC. It was an extremely busy day and the restaurant was packed. You place your order on a I pad when you walk in and than pay for it. They give you a number to put on your table and wait for your food. They told us they were short... More

Great place to go for girl's lunches during warm weather. You build your own sandwich or salad using a ipad in the entry. Great beer and wine selection. Does not take cash though!

This is an awesome addition to the Chapel Hill dining scene. Informal for lunch, classy for an evening out. Good prices, great decor.

My daughter and her friend took me here and I loved it. Interesting atmosphere and intellectual looking customer base. You place your orders using and I-pad. Loved that you can calibrate the amount of each ingredient you want so that you really can design the sandwich exactly as you desire. The array of ingredients go well beyond the typical deli...

Stopped in here on a Friday night. Didn't look like a busy place from outside, but lots of people inside. Lots of small spaces so you can find a quiet spot to talk. Younger crowd and service staff. When I asked what kind of wines were available, the answer was: Merlot, Cabernet, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio. No labels. Quirky. But good... More

My husband and I live really close and order take out from TRU 3 or 4 times a month for almost a year now. The staff is nice, not saccharine and overly chatty but still helpful and welcoming. The sandwiches and salads are customized and made to order. The ingredients are all very fresh tasting. The sourdough bread is so... More

It's a college town and this place is a hang out spot, which gives it a hip vide. The wine, beer, and drink selection is pretty good. The sandwiches are delicious, and the outdoor seating is great. You order inside on a tablet and pay at the same time. Too much fun! P.S. I'm 45+ and did not feel out... More
