Description: Grits Grill is a decidedly southern place to have a great breakfast or lunch year round. It's open till 2 pm daily. Most of the cooking is done right behind the diner style front counter. Eggs any style, chipped beef, omelettes, hotcakes and of course grits (cooked just about any style) are breakfast specialties and served anytime. Lunch is full of specials, deli offerings and big, juicy burgers. Owned locally. Staff is well known for being warm and friendly. Come have breakfast with us anytime!

“Good Food”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Our hotel recommended this place for breakfast. Just a casual, friendly place, which we wanted. There was many choices to make on the menu and the service was fast. The grits were delicious!! We returned 3 of the 4 days were stayed in Nags Head.....

“Great food, friendly service!”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 via mobile

Not much to look at from the outside, located in a strip mall area. it was very busy on a Friday morning. We got a delicious omelette and grits and bacon and hash browns and more. The price was very good for the OBX. The interior is not fancy but perfect for a casual beach place, they can seat large groups or one person can sit at the counter. There is a small souvenir shop area, check it out. Grits grill is only open 6 am to 2 pm, so get there early!

“Huge Southern breakfast!”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

As a former Southerner, I was excited to have a real Southern breakfast, and this place satisfied me big time! Pancakes, scrambled eggs, grits, hash browns, a BIG biscuit and sausage. It was all delicious and all for < $10!! If you've never had grits, these are the ones to try. The biscuits are flaky and buttery, and the hash browns are the real thing.

“worth the wait”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

We stopped off here on our way out of the Banks on Saturday. It was busy! We had about 15 min wait.
Once we got seated we had coffee almost right away. Also side note they have GREAT coffee here!
We both ordered Kiss our grits and it was awesome home town food.
Great price – Great food and great atmosphere
