Best BLT sandwich ever! Impressive conversion of old gas station into a cute restaurant. It is a favorite amongst locals.

Merritt's is well-known for it's BLT - and it's a good one. A pretty great one, actually. If you really love bacon, get the double. I am a lover of the balance, so a single is my speed, but those who love bacon really dig the double. It's worth the wait, if there is a line - and it goes pretty quickly!

Best BLTs anywhere in the NC Triangle area, if not the state. Make sure you get there early for lunch as the place if packed. I'm a Chapel Hill native and actually remember when Merritt's sold gas as a country store on the outskirts of the city. The city has grown and they no longer sell gas, but the place has remained a country store with the accompanying country store feel. Not a bad place to get a morning bacon, egg and cheese sandwich either. Good hand food for a reasonable price...I don't think you'll be disappointed.

They didn’t get their reputation of having the best BLTs for nothing! It’s the only thing I get from here and the reason I tell friends and family to go! They’re even better than the ones I make at home! Go all out and get a double and add avocado! It’s amazing!

This place is insanely good. Full stop. Do yourself a favor, and go when you're hungry.

The BLTs are out of this world. I'm not kidding.

Not cheap, but excellent value for what you get.

Placing an order can be a little awkward with the system they have, but endure it and you'll be glad you did.

My mouth is watering as I write this review. Enough said.
