If you're around Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and in the mood for a burger then this is the place to go. Delicious burgers, lots of topping choices, and an order of fries feeds two. Don't go for ambiance, it's a burger joint...

While visiting Chapel Hill this week I stopped here for supper. You order at the counter then they bring you your food at your table. The burgers are made to order. I loved the fries. The atmosphere was very casual.

If you're bargaining for a burger, Buns off Franklin is the place to be... even if you don't eat meat! Why students and locals go: They know that one of the best things about Buns is the choices they offer: So many choices, so little...More

Good burgers and fresh cut fries. Build your own or order one of their specialties. Good sauces and reasonable prices.

Not my first time but it's been a while since we do not live in the area. I continue to be pleased with the quality of the burger and in this case, also the level of service. The fries are good and they give you...More

Think cafeteria style. Some tables, some booths. There's a long booth/banquette seating along the exterior wall - makes it easy to pull together tables for a large group, if desired. Be prepared to do this yourself; Mention... More
