Eat here if you are ever in Chapel Hill. Just walking by he restaurant will entice you into the dining room. Our experience was fantastic! Highly recommend to everyone we know going to Chapel Hill.

I am almost embarrassed to discover this currently rated as the #1 Dining Experience in Chapel Hill, having written well over 100 reviews here and "discovering" this place by accident. We were actually headed somewhere else for dinner, and a parking situation (no surprise in Chapel Hill, am I right?) found us literally just driving by and me going "that looks good" and someone pulling away from the curb at that same moment...

Anyway, this place was FANTASTIC. No, it is not "fine" dining in the usual sense, but the food is amazing, and the selection rich, and if you cannot find something that makes your eyes bigger than your stomach to choose from, you deserve to starve, or survive on dry bread and water. It has EVERYTHING I could possibly think of Greek plus a lot more.

It is reminiscent of a NY Deli set-up, where you order and pay at the counter -- in this case there has to be at least 30-40 feet of counter space behind which is tiers of foodstuff -- desserts, salads, fruits, sides, sandwiches, platters... all authentic Mediterranean dishes.

If I lived here, I could easily see this being a "go to" dining spot. As it was, it was a great capstone to a two day visit.

If you love Med type food...this is the place. It makes a wonderful addition to the many ethnic/regional restaurants in Chapel Hill. Service is very fast and if you are not sure of what you are actually ordering you can go up and look at the items under the glass counter. Pricing is reasonable and the atmosphere typical of a college town.

Great food!!!!!

Med Deli is delicious! I love getting their beef kabobs and picking a couple of sides to go with them! I definitely recommend the Sun Dried Tomato Penne (cold), the bruschetta, and the hummus. After my meal, I can hardly resist getting a piece of their walnut baklava. It is a tad pricey for the tiny piece, but it is always moist and well worth it.

They have a bar with Kalamata olives, green olives, tzatiki, tahini and other food accompaniments.

Their pop has always been carbonated and they have good tea.

This is definitely the place if you want a good, filling meal without being at a waiter's mercy.

I have been to many parties that Med Deli has catered and the cornucopia of food that they provided was great!

You can go to the counter, order and pay, and then it gets delivered to the table. I liked that on this trip because when you travel in a mixed group, its easier than splitting a check. The food was as good as any similar restaurant in NYC. You can even get a glass of wine.
