Like our family tradition of beach week in OBX we also have a tradition of dining at Grits Grill. The service is speedy (odd for the South, but that's another story). They are only open Breakfast & Lunch, but as far as I'm concerned they are all about Breakfast. Big Breakfasts.
Most of us order eggs and grits, but the pancakes are worthy of mention.
Since this is OBX they can fit in big groups but prepare to wait, no reservations taken. Do what we do, send the earliest riser to put your name on the list and have them call everyone else when the table is almost ready.
The hardest thing to do at Grits Grill is remember that you'll be putting a bathing suit on after stuffing your face with breakfast.
