Lula’s is open for business in downtown Chapel Hill, according to the restaurant’s Instagram account.

The new restaurant is the latest concept from the Chapel Hill Restaurant Group and is replacing the iconic eatery Spanky’s, which the company “retired” earlier this year after more than 40 years in business.

“It’s going to be a Southern restaurant,” part owner and marketing director for Chapel Hill Restaurant Group Greg Overbeck recently told WCHL. “Really good fried chicken and porkchops and short ribs and farm-to-table vegetables, freshly squeezed lemonade, homemade biscuits, mint juleps.”

Lula’s will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday – Saturday. The restaurant will be closed Sundays. You can see Lula’s menu here.
