Very clean facility, i.e., lobby, kitchen (from what I could see) and restrooms. The challenge is the food and pricing. Righteous Chicken Strips tastes like they were cooked yesterday; dry, soft exterior, very bland flavor. The biscuit had a very good flavor but it was...More

Always stop here when in Chapel Hill for a biscuit and a donut. Both are yummy. This is a quick serve type place with limited inside seating. Well worth a trip. Glad to see they’re expanding to many other locations. Yummy.

My husband and I went here on a Sunday morning for late breakfast. Though it was busy, ordering is quick. If you get only doughnuts, it is in and out. We both got biscuits, so you have to wait while it is prepared. The chicken...More

This Rise is located in a new shopping area just off 40 in Durham. It is a little hard to find for an out of towner, but I finally made it. Very small store, very busy, even at 11:30 on a Sunday. I thought I...More
