“Great food, friendly service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 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!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 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”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 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

“Perfect place for a quick breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

My friends and I had been vacationing in Kitty Hawk for the week and the last place we went out to eat was the most satisfying meal we had all week! We sat at the bar and were quickly greeted and brought drinks. They served both breakfast and lunch. We had breakfast and it was delicious! The biscuit tasted fresh, bacon was crispy, and the hash browns were grilled just right! Will definitely make it back to Grits in the future!

“Grits, Atmosphere and Service :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Early Lunch while at Nags Head...I needed to get my NC "shrimp 'n grits" and this turned out to be THE place! Diner-like atmosphere was fun and the service was both friendly and swift. But definitely GET the GRITS! ......prices were very reasonable, especially for a vacation location. My wife had a crab cake and that was very good too.....Don't pass this place by.......
