Tips:
  • Saturday nights during summer, crowds are small and produce is at its best--the perfect time to check out the chef's specials.
  • Call ahead and ask for a tasting menu. The chef will create five very cool small dishes just for you--dishes that aren't even on the menu.
  • Get hooked up with the special events by signing up for the email newsletter. These events aren't open to the public.

From OpenTable: 

The ovens are turned on early. Six o'clock most days. Earlier on Sunday. Within an hour, bread is rising, apples are being sliced. Pecan pies are pulled hot from the oven and left to cool. Ice cream churns in the machine. Cups of coffee steam on the prep table, the baker's cup marked with chocolaty fingerprints.
By midmorning, pork shoulder, rubbed with spices the day before, is slowly smoked. And white buckets are filled with sliced onions. Corn is shucked. The stock that cooked all night is taken off the stove and strained. Bags of fresh shrimp are delivered in old grocery store bags.
The waiters arrive in groups, shirts and ties on hangers. By then, every burner in the kitchen is being used. Herbs are chopped. Scallops cleaned. Ovens at 500 degrees. All sauces are checked. Bartenders polish their shakers. Silverware is rolled and every surface is wiped down. Music. Lights. Doors are opened.
Dinnertime. At Acme. Seven nights a week. Local never tasted so damn good.

One of my favorite spots in Carrboro

Overall, I have a good impression of Acme and have enjoyed my dining experiences there. Contrary to many of the reviews here, I have never experienced rude service and have found the wait staff to be generally pleasant and always polite.…

great food and service - local treats

Love the fact they have different menu options then you normally would find and they have some nice local ingredients that make it that much better. Only slight knock is I wish it was a litlte cheaper so I could go more often!

Excellent local food

I am surprised to see the reviews below. My wife and I have gone on several occasions and found the food and atmosphere terrific. I also appreciate their using local farmers for many of their ingredients. I would highly recommend it!
