On our way to our jeep event and came across this place. I had the eggs scrambled with cheese, bacon and grits. Yes, the grits were good. Hubby had pancakes and they were very large and he said they were also good.

My husband and I eat breakfast here every morning that we go to Nags Head. We are definitely hooked on their food. Everything is good but I would recommend to chipped beef and gravy with hash browns or grits. Great food!

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!
