Comfort Food – A Carrboro institution, particularly for the local construction and municipal workers. Not fancy, definitely not low-calorie; just tasty foods at great prices. Excellent breakfast selections and prices. Very good burgers for the price - better than going to Wendy's or BK. Lunch specials change by the day and all are quite popular. I particularly like the meatloaf with a side of boiled potatoes and green beans. Their chicken livers and fried okra are very popular as well. Very good hush-puppies.
Great Value in Carrboro – This is classic Carrboro- UNC faculty to groundskeepers to fire and police officers. A complete cross section of the triangle. food is only ok but the value/$$ is astronomical. No frills but decent breakfasts less than $3.00/plate- 2 eggs, meat, grits and biscuit. Really nice people. Been going every Saturday morning for more than 10 years. Way better value than the diners like Elmo's.
Cheap breakfast and lunch plates. – In Short
Really cheap breakfast and lunch plates, including such classics as the "two-egg breakfast" and "meat and vegetable" combos. Typical meats are fried chicken, fried fish, and meat loaf, but may vary. Vegetables are on a self-serve buffet featuring French fries, fried okra, corn, green beans, hush puppies, and the like. Corn bread, biscuits, and yeast rolls complete your grease intake.
Cheapest Eat! – "$2.29 Breakfast Plate" advertizes a sign about Country Junction's front window. This "plate" includes an enormous pile of food including eggs any style, one breakfast meat, a bread, and a choice of side (grits, etc.). There are also a-la-carte breakfast items for less than a buck. This is quite possibly the best down-home meal deal around!
Sure, you get served on styrofoam plates and plastic cutlery. But if you are looking for a bargain and great food, this is your place! You'll also love the classic circular diner windows and interesting unrelated art prints on the walls.
Disgusting but cheap – I was so happy when I first saw Country Junction, because I thought it was a throwback to an old-fashioned southern breakfast restaurant. It's not. The food is cheap, but skimpy, greasy, and mostly tasteless. School lunch in public middle school was a big step up. The place is small, and if there is a non-smoking section it dosen't really matter. Service is okay. If you're broke and starving, it's a good place, but I avoid it and I work next door.
