I am so happy that it was difficult for me to find a place in the Outerbanks on a Monday am for breakfast. Otherwise I wouldn't have found Grits Grill! I had basic eggs and grits...it was my first time for grits (yes, I'm a...Yankee!) and they were DELICIOUS. Lots of flavor and very tasty. Zach was a terrific server and even brought me some sweet tea when he learned that I had not tried that either. I would definitely go there again and ask for Zach!More

Lived up to its name. Grits were some of the best I've ever had. Excellent breakfast, friendly staff. Pancakes were just right. Eggs cooked just as ordered. Will definitely eat here again on our next OBX visit. Staff super friendly.
