What a cute place! Very friendly staff! You can eat inside or outside- there’s plenty of seating. The food is KILLER! I loved my turkey, bacon, and guacamole sandwich. I also got the banana pudding and it didn’t disappoint. So so good! I will definitely be back to try more items on the menu that include their amazing bacon.

The sandwiches here are quite hefty. I didn’t have anything to eat for breakfast but a single BLT filled me up. They have a chalkboard to compare the different levels of BLTs they offer (and on the menu too. The single has 7 slices of bacon). The bread was toasted just enough, lettuce and tomatoes looked and tasted fresh, and the bacon was a right level of cripsy.The parking is tight, and there is an additional lot across the street. Indoor is very limited seating and it comes very crammed considering how busy this place gets. The staff was friendly and helpful! The most surprising aspect of my experience here was the food turn around time. Granted, all I had was 1 sandwich but still, it was fast! They definitely have a system in place to accommodate their popular business. It’s primarily an outdoor seating location, but the outdoor seating is beautiful. There is a bamboo restoration surrounding the outdoor seating, and surprisingly the chairs were comfortable.

One of the BEST Cheeseburgers I’ve had in recent memory!! Not only are all the “fixin’s” extremely fresh, but the double burger was cooked perfectly! All of the menu looks amazing, so I will be back to try other offerings. Check ✔️ them out next time you’re hungry in Chapel Hill !!

Stopped in to give it a try and I am so impressed with the food. Of course I had to try the double BLT and it was amazing, the bread was great, the Bacon was cooked just right and the veggies tasted so fresh. I also had the perfectly pulled pork sandwich.. it was incredible, very nice portion size and the coleslaw on it was nice and crisp and the pork had wonderful flavor! We live 8 minutes from here I will be eating here often!

Who doesn’t like a BLT? The place looks to be an old gas station. The portions are huge and the atmosphere is just relaxing al with a beautiful setting.

I first read about Merritt’s Grill in the Tarheel Traveler book, Good Eats. The article showcased their famous BLT sandwich.

Very very good—I’ve been here several times, and have enjoyed it every time. Grandpa’s tomato is a wonderful option for vegetarians. However, the banana pudding wasn’t my favorite.

We’ve heard about how great this place is, so decided to try it today. It looked very busy as we entered the front parking lot, but found extra spaces in back. Also saw about 20 tables in back under the trees. Once inside we ordered our BLT sandwiches very quickly and was told they would text us when it was ready. In a short time I got the text, grab our food and went out back. What a charming place to relax and enjoy the best BLT sandwiches I’ve ever had.

Delicious BLT! I got the triple blt. Not sure if there really was 1 lb of bacon or not. Bacon could be crispier but it was delicious either way
