My husband and I came here to eat breakfast. We waited about an hour to be seated because the place was so busy. Their grits were exceptional but the rest of the food was about average. It's worth the wait if you're looking for a...More

Not far from Ramada at Nags Head, easy to get to. Old tyme diner decor with southern charm and service. Breakfasts are fairly priced and over abundantly served. Get their Grits for which they are known, Best Place for Breakfast

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!
