Stopped in for breakfast. Food and service were quick and very good. Definitely an old school Pittsboro restaurant. Prices were very affordable.

This restaurant has great sandwiches and salads. On Friday night they have steak dinners that are mouth watering.

I was at my daughters for Christmas and visited the restaurant as usual. When it came time to pay Santa took care of the bill. I would like to thank everyone and the Secret Santa. This is my favorite spot to eat when in town. I WILL SEE YOU AT EASTER.

My husband and I were going through Pittsboro and wanted to stop to eat. I was checking out restaurants on MAPS app & decided on another place. We went in & ordered drinks and then checked the menu - not our kind of place to eat so just paid for drinks and found Virlie's on the map - thank God.... More

Typical morning fare, but what makes it special is the friendly staff and patrons. If you want to see Pittsboro at its finest, visit this place for breakfast

Everybody in this town knows the specials by heart! Just enjoy a step back to the 50's in this popular Main Street small town restaurant. Food is basic but good. Service is outstanding!

Virlie's Grill is a great place to get food like Grandma used to make. You don't count the calories or carbs here, and it all tastes great! The staff are well-known for their welcoming small-town hospitality and this place is packed with town regulars. We love to come here for breakfast or lunch and often see our neighbors!

Yes, it is your typical grill food. But the service is excellent and the food great. Fast and friendly! Don't miss the homemade pies and cakes. They are fabulous!

Simple foods, solid breakfast, also offers lunch and dinner. Pleasant service (no surly characters) and consistency puts this one over the top as the best diner in Town! Also, LOCALLY OWNED!
