8The Daily Tar Heel Thursday,
The parental units have decided to
visit their little darling now residing
in Chapel Hill. This can strike fear
in the hearts of the most stalwart of
Tar Heels. The visit poses a number
of dilemmas: how can you keep them
out of your room, away from its
stacks of empty beer cans, old pizza
boxes and rock-like uneaten Time
Out biscuits; where are you going to
find a shirt that's not so dirty it stands
If you're stuck in a
styrofood rut, why not try a
fresh alternative: a made-to-order
sub, or salad from
Subway. At Subway we use

where can you get Mom and Dad
to take you and 25 of your new
friends out to dinner?
Chapel Hill has a number of
restaurants that can be saved for that
parental visit or even for a special

are always free. So why set

from Subway, the fresh
up the tab at someplace nice
Since 1922, many generations of
Tar Heels have been enjoying this
quaint restaurant, popular for its
Saturday and Sunday morning
The food is excellent and is a nice
break from cafeteria food or apart
ment cooking. There are a variety of
entrees, such as roast beef au jus,
omelets, London broil, lasagna and
'fried clams. Also available are lighter
sandwiches and salads.
Many customers return for the
Coffee Shop's most popular dessert
black walnut apple pie a la mode,
which is said to be a 40-year-old
Prices range from about $4 for a
sandwich to $10 for London broil.
Prompt and courteous service, as
well as soothing background music,
make the meal even better.
Crook's Corner, at 610 W. Frank
lin St., is a bit out of the way for
students without cars, but this
restaurant, which has been favorably
written up in "The New York Times"
on several occasions, may well be
worth the walk.
A diner-like appearance and a pink
pig statue rising above the restaurant
give the establishment some of its
. character, although wall hangings
inside are something out of a fisher
Crook's Corner offers both indoor
and outdoor dining. The menu is
varied; entrees range from Cajun
steak and fish to the more usual
barbecue and hamburgers. Southern
style food is Crook's specialty, and
many of the dishes are served with
hush puppies or grits. Prices run a
few dollars higher than comparable
restaurants, with the average entree
costing about $13.
Jordan Le Charolais Steak House,
at 157 E. Rosemary St., might be just
the perfect place to impress a date.
Jordan's provides an atmosphere
that is both comfortable and private
with eating areas indoors and in a
glass greenhouse-like area.
You'll gobble down every bite of pur
delicious Wild Turkey Sandwich. It's tender
turkey breast served on toasted oat bread
with cucumbers and a cream cheese and tar
ragon dressing. Fresh and nutritious . . . like
everything we serve.
Come on over and
bring your friends.

Standout features are the service,
wnich is prompt and tnendlv. and
the food itself. Food selections
include steaks, seafood and the house
specialty, a prime rib buffet.
Entrees range in price from about
$6 to $14, but since the portions are
large a trip to Jordan's may be well
worth the money.
With prices that start at $12, Last
Resort is out of most students' budget
ranges, but for a nice meal it doesn't
finish it at
DTH Larry Cnuaress
Located next to Jordan's, Last
Resort specializes in steak and
potatoes, but with a different twist.
Instead of serving longhorn or
Brahman cow as their main source ,
of beef, Last Resort boasts nothing
but the tender and expensive Angus
cow, which should please true steak
The salad bar and appetizers are
also quite good and the atmosphere
is relaxing and comforting.
Colonel Chutney's, at 300 W.
Rosemary St., balances an unimpres
sive outside appearance with an
indoor atmosphere that brings to
mind an Italian vineyard. Ferns
adorn the windows, and natural
colored lattice work stands out on
a background of deep green walls and
Bellowing rock music, however,
quickly diminishes any possibility of
being in Italy, as does a television
placed above the bar and the raucous
chatter of college students.
Its specialties are its large, juicy
hamburgers. Other dishes include a
10-ounce ribeye; oysters, flounder,
roast beef, a prime rib sandwich,
Teriyaki chicken and a range of
sandwiches, including the club and
the ham and cheese. Appetizers, such
as nachos with a variety of cheeses
and sauces and side dishes such as
baked potatoes are also offered.
The food is very tasty, seasoned
perfectly and presented in a picture
Prices range from $3.95 for the
sandwiches up to $10 or $12 for the
ribeye and some of the seafoods. The
prices are reasonable considering the
amount and quality of the food
