Sunday Brunch at The Roadhouse

Brunch Buffet Every Sunday

Since October, 2015 the Pittsboro Roadhouse has been open EVERY SUNDAY for Brunch (unless it’s a holiday like Christmas or New Year’s Day).

We’re open for Pittsboro First Sunday, the day when  historic downtown Pittsboro opens up its doors and fills the sidewalks with crafts and specials for visitors. And we’re open every other Sunday!

We’re currently serving a brunch buffet. Menu changes periodically.

The hours are 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m (seating by 2:30pm).

Sunday Brunch Menu

We are open for brunch every Sunday, including Mother’s Day and Easter Sunday, and in 2016 Valentine’s Day, which falls on a Sunday too.

Our Lounge

In addition to sitting for Brunch, there is a comfortable lounge, some call the “Flat Tire Lounge” because some of the tables are made from tires with a plexiglass surface. Guests can rest their feet and order something cool or something hot to eat or drink or both before heading out again. 

With the spirit of a street market, and a wide variety of wares for sale, 1st Sunday Pittsboro is an event. If you haven’t been, you should make a half day of it.

Town of Pittsboro

Have you seen the colored map of Downtown Pittsboro created by the Pittsboro Business Association? You may want to print it out if it’s your first visit to the quaint and vibrant downtown center. A new one has been in the works in the early Spring 2015, see if it’s ready yet.




Notes: Sunday March 3, 2013, was the first Brunch offered at the Pittsboro Roadhouse on Pittsboro First Sundays only until October 2015. In October 2015, Sunday Brunch was offered every Sunday with a Brunch menu. Since summer 2016, we offer a brunch buffet.

Destination Restaurants from Apex NC

Highway Sign on 64 WestNewcomers from all over the world, and all over America are moving to the Triangle. You’ve met them. Maybe you’re one. North Carolina is a magnet for people of all ages, for families, entrepreneurs, seniors, singles. Our state really does have it all, and the world is taking notice.

So you’re not from around here, or you’ve been away for a time. How do you find out what’s new, what’s hot, what you’re missing?!

Happily there are many bloggers out traveling around taking pictures and writing notes about what’s really really cool and fun and worth your time.

That’s what it’s all about isn’t it – finding out what is worth your time to travel to.

Apex North Carolina has many of its own attractions – the historic district downtown is charming and delightful, and full of good restaurants. But, if you live here, as some of us do, after a while, you’re ready for some variety, something new, something different, and we’d like to make sure that you who live in Apex are well aware of some gems less than half an hour away, heading West on Hwy 64, through the country side, past farms and high end developments, over the aquatic heaven of Jordan Lake with its many parks and beaches and boat launching sites, over a couple of hills and across the Haw River to another world… Chatham County, and Pittsboro North Carolina.

A transplant myself, living in Apex, I remember the first time asked about traveling “so far” to Pittsboro. I was considering taking professional training out in that direction but I was concerned about having to drive out that way three times a week for a year.

“So tell me, how did you stand the drive?” I asked, as if it was an eight or ten hour drive.

“It’s beautiful,” she said, “simply beautiful.”

“After a day at work, sitting at a desk, dealing with all the pressure of a corporate job, I’d pack a snack for the after work drive, and in just a few minutes I found myself enjoying the skyline, the clouds and colors over Lake Jordan, the colors and movement of the leaves on the roadside trees, the birds, the boats, the hills, and before I knew it, I was there in Pittsboro, more relaxed, and really happy to have traveled through the countryside for a short spell.”

Her words sank in, rang true, and in the years to come I would complete three year long weekend trainings traveling daily round trips for 2 or 3 day weekends back and forth to just beyond Pittsboro. — Anora McGaha

[slideshow_deploy id=’743′]

It’s January 1st, for a few more hours.

Have you been thinking about what changes you’d like in your life?

We’ve been thinking about what changes we want at the Pittsboro Roadhouse.

Our look. Everyone likes the renovations. We do too. So we’re good in that department. Phew! We worked hard on that!

Our menu. We get lots of feedback about our menu. We have those who love it. And we have customers who have been asking for more vegetarian, more vegan, more low-salt / low cream. While Tempura Dipped Bacon and the Roadhouse Angus Burger remain big sellers, our salads and especially our salmon dishes are very popular.

Greg Lewis, the Pittsboro Roadhouse owner, has had a long career in the food business, an his catering company, Catering-by-Design has done very well, winning 2 awards in 2012, one in Customer Service Excellence. Greg’s an excellent cook and loves creating new recipes. He’s said he’s been mulling over some changes for 2013, with no commitment yet as to when, but know some changes are in the works.

Our music. How are you liking our music lineup? Live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. Have you seen who’s lined up for 2013? Email music@pittsbororoadhouse.com if you’d like to give us some feedback. We want to know what you think and feel, even if we can’t guarantee to please everyone. Your feedback counts.

Our Wednesday Open Mic and Karaoke with Raleigh Event DJ Brad Junell.  What do you think of those events? Brad Junell’s great as a host, isn’t he? We’re excited about the talent that’s been showing up, and hope more will join us in 2013. Tell us on Facebook, or email karaoke@pittsbororoadhouse.com or openmic@pittsbororoadhouse.com.

Our community events. The Siler City Christmas Parade. The Pittsboro Christmas Parade. The Pittsboro Roadhouse Christmas Party.
