The Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store, the largest restaurant in Pittsboro, North Carolina, and the top combined restaurant / music venue in the greater Chapel Hill area, announced that it will be open every Sunday beginning October, 2015.
“For our first three years, people wanted us to be open every Sunday, but we needed a day off while establishing The Roadhouse. Now, with more resources in-house, we are pleased to be able to open,” said Chef Greg Lewis, owner of The Pittsboro Roadhouse since the summer of 2012.
For the past two years, with encouragement from the Pittsboro Business Association, the Pittsboro Roadhouse opened on First Sundays, as part of Pittsboro First Sunday, providing plenty of indoor space for larger groups, restrooms and a comfortable lounge for visitors, in addition to a tasty lunch, mimosas and Bloody Mary’s.
“Brunch was a hit,” Lewis said, “and we’ve been under pressure to open open every Sunday, ever since.” A number of times when holding meetings in the Roadhouse on a Sunday morning or afternoon, guests would knock on the door hoping they were open, Lewis told us.
