We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Al's Burger Shack

Alex Caterson/The Splinter Group

There’s a time and a place for fancy, expensive burgers, but when you’re looking for the opposite, there’s nowhere better than Al’s. Their classic cheeseburger is a thick patty cooked medium, topped with cheddar, and served on a squishy potato bun for under $9. You can choose from options like the Kenny J with bacon, BBQ sauce, and pimento cheese, or one of the two meatless burgers, a sweet potato and black bean patty and a caramelized roasted cauliflower one, that really hold their own. There are three locations within a 10-minute drive from the UNC campus, and they’re all pretty small, with just a handful of tables and patios, so expect people to hover (or just ask if they can squeeze onto one end of your table) if you linger.

You'll need a better browser for that!
