6- FOUR CORNERS-Est. 1978
Named for Dean Smith’s famous “four corners” offensive strategy, Four Corners has been a popular spot to watch the game for decades. Don’t let the packed restaurant fool you, though. After 39 years of being open, Four Corners has mastered customer service. “Four Corners has the best service,” freshman Andrew McKinnon said. “One of their employees, Annie, even helped me with a business project once.” And with three separate levels for seating, every Tar Feel fan can find a place to sit to grab a bite while doing homework or catching up with a friend.
BEST FRIED PICKLES- By Kathy Hanrahan
FOUR CORNERS (CHAPEL HILL, NC)
We had to put this place on the list because of its appetizer known as the "Julius Peppers." Named for the Nash County product who played both basketball and football at UNC, it is a heated, crunchy combination of fried pickles, banana peppers and jalapeños served with ranch dipping sauce.

Named for UNC’s legendary basketball coach, Dean Smith’s “Four Corners” offense ( which he used to stall opponents at the end of games where in the Tar Heels had the lead ), The Grille at Four Corners is the second coming of a great sports bar in a tremendous college town.
Four Corners features 20 high def televisions, a southern menu and a whopping 12 beers are available on tap, and you can bet it will be a great place to make merry after a Carolina game.
BEST SPORTS BAR FOR MARCH MADNESS- By Joel Fineman
If you bleed Carolina blue, you should be watching March Madness unfold at Four Corners. Practically a part of campus due to its location, this relatively small bar serves up 12 draft beers, 40-plus bottled varieties, and some tasty bar food, including buffalo wings. But the real reason you come here is to enjoy the camaraderie facilitated by the bar's tiered set-up. With a great layout and TV arrangement, Four Corners somehow contains boisterous Tar Heels of all ages during basketball games. Narrowly taking the cake over competing March-Madness gathering ground, Top of the Hill, Four Corners' true-blue setting makes it the perfect place to meet up with Carolina fans—rain or shine, win or lose.
