The Pittsboro Roadhouse is a great choice in Pittsboro for a bite to eat. There is a parking lot across the street from the restaurant and they do take reservations. The food is delicious and the service prompt and friendly. I ordered the chicken salad...wrap as it had cranberries in it. I chose a side of fries and very pleased with both. I don't get to Pittsboro often but will return here again.More

What a goldmine. If you are looking for the unusual or usual, look no further they probably have it! Friendly staff and interesting collection of goods. Not buying? Stop in and browse anyway. I bet you wont leave empty-handed.

I visited with two friends last weekend while passing through the area. I ordered two of the appetizers for my meal, the fried olives/pickled okra and the loaded french fries. Both were good, though a tad small on the portion size. One friend got the...fried fish sandwich, which she enjoyed. The other friend got the chili, which was too spicy for her to eat, though the menu did not mention it being spicy (however, I will say that she is elderly and having trouble with taste, so it may have been more spicy to her than someone else).More

Stopping on our way home from doctor appointment at Duke, the Early dinner meal was delicious! The pot roast special was served with fresh vegetables perfectly cooked over mashed potatoes and served with warm rolls and a honey butter. We enjoyed wonderful cocktails ...a cinnamon...rum punch and a perfectly crafted Old Fashion. We took our dessert home to enjoy later in the evening...a carrot cake. Our server was delightful very Welcoming and attentive. We hadn’t been there in several months and their new decor is just beautiful!More

I had the cheese ravioli and thought that $17 was a bit expensive for the portions and the fact it did not come with bread or a side salad. I might expect to pay that in a city but not in a town like Pittsboro....That said, it was okay but somewhat rich for my taste. Efficient waitress.More

We decided to eat at the Pittsboro Roadhouse on a whim. I liked the fact that it was an old car dealership and my Wife liked that it was somewhat removed from the courthouse as there were demonstrators the day we were there. We were...seated quickly at a booth in what used to be the showroom. The menu was varied and eclectic, but in a good way. They also had some good old stand buys like burgers and wraps. I ordered a burger and my Wife ordered a wrap. Both came quickly and were cooked and prepared to perfection. I really enjoyed the whole atmosphere and the food and would recommend to anyone.More

This was a unique pleasure to find in a small town. From the large, transparent view of the town square (round, actually), to the tasty food offerings, to the friendly staff, the Roadhouse did not disappoint. Once inside, we discovered a comfortable blend of the...uptown feel of a large city with the down home feeling of a small town. Rather than just passing through Pittsboro on the way somewhere else, it may be wise to plan a visit and stop in at the Roadhouse.More

The Pittsboro Roadhouse is across the street from the Historic Courthouse at the traffic circle. We walked up and down the small shopping area, then had a wonderful dinner here. Great atmosphere, server was good. They have a lot of variety in the menu. I...got the southern Shrimp and Grits, and it was amazing. Highly recommend!More

The hubs and I have been here twice and the reason we love this place is how accommodating and 'everything friendly' they are! Gluten free? No problem! ALL their layer cakes are gluten free! It may not sound like much, but the hubs was able...to have a delicious dessert! Most of their menu items are gluten free as well, along with vegetarian and vegan friendly options. Our waiter Dalton went out of his way to see that we had a great time and that we did! They also have great music on the weekends. Looking forward to coming back soon!More

I took my niece and nephew here for dinner. The service was good, the food was good especially the hamburgers. The ambiance is kind of like a restaurant / store setting with a place to purchase local items like candies, cook books, etc. I'd say...prices are reasonable, easy parking, we did not need a reservation on a Saturday and were seated very quickly.More
