Chose Topo for a post UNC campus tour lunch. Service attentive. Hamburger competent, but not a wow item. Rare grilled tuna sandwich a treat. Tasty and moist. Request to omit fries honored and side salad as substitute was fresh and crisp. Southwestern gemelli pasta was generous in size but miserly in flavor. The chicken it contained was perfectly cooked and... More

TOPO is located in the very center of CH. From the outdoor seating area on the second floor you can gaze all the way down Franklin St. in both directions. They brew their own beer and it's good. Seasonal favorites. Food is very good for his type establishment. A must stop for a visit to CH.

Inside or outside there is something on the menu here for everyone. Craft beers are delicious, don't miss out on having their own vodka, gin or any craft distilled drinks they make in Chapel Hill. In the twenty years I've dined and drank there I've never had anything but a great experience...go there...you won't be disappointed either.

During another college visit to UNC, we decided to do lunch here because we loved our dinner a few months back. The lunch menu is much abbreviated and they don't offer the same options as dinner. I asked the waiter for a suggestion and he offered the Pork rib sandwich. I asked about whether the meat was like a pulled... More

Went here with a group. Has a nice view of the area. Bar is well appointed. Good for large groups. Seems to be a good place to eat also, lots of table full. We did not eat, just a few beers.

It's the classiest place on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill. Yes, this means we are only comparing to college food, but it is nice — if a bit pricey.

Beer snob credentials: Apart from being spoiled by all the excellent breweries in Michigan and Illinois I home-brew my own. My UNC buddy Carl took me here as a must see spot. His local knowledge paid. This place has a fantastic view of the surrounding area and excellent beer brewed on site. The tables are an attractive pinewood lacquered for... More

We went to Top of the Hill after the Citadel game, and the service was ridiculously slow even for a game day crowd. We sat at the bar right next to the waitress station. It took about 10 min for the bartenders to acknowledge us and 20 min to get our drinks. After that we decided to go eat someplace... More
