Bub's is a local college hangout. The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired, unless you like sticking to the floor.

If you hit this place at a resonable hour, you can get pretty good service, and play ping pong, or shuffleboard. They have about 25 taps, mostly macrobrew, but there's usually something like Guinness or Sierra Nevada that will get you by.

The bartenders are fine, but don't expect great service when the place is packed. The only offerings here are beer and a couple of different types of wine.

Every time I've ever been here it is completely dead, the bartenders seem almost annoyed that someone came in. I think the selection doesn't extend much past your average Miller's/Bud Light/Michelob/Etc.

This place is a staple in Chapel Hill. Being one of the oldest places in Chapel Hill they must be doing something right. With 30 beers on tap and another 100 beers in bottles you can not go wrong here if you love beer. With ping pong, foosball, video games nd the only shuffleboard in town what else could you want. It is also one of the best places to go and watch any UNC games on one of their nine t.v.s. There is no wine at all so the previous review should be deted since he was probably somewhere else.
