FAQ Where can I get grits on Hilton Head Island or in Bluffton SC?
Believe it or not - I do get asked this question and the answer is EVERYWHERE and ANYWHERE!
Now, having said that I do have my favorites - Cahill's on Highway 46; where I also splurge and get their fabulous fried chicken, has terrific grits. Made perfectly with milk and floating butter on top. This along with hot coffee and a nice biscuit will get you started out for a terrific day!
If I'm on the island, the standby is Skillets. They make a great cheesy grits with real chunks of cheddar cheese. If you're really in the mood for stick to your ribs, processed cheese style cheesy grits, try the grits at Harold's Diner. No fuss here, and you'd better be ready with your order.
By the way, I realize that also part of this FAQ is WHAT IN THE HECK ARE GRITS? No, they aren't pasta, no they aren't a kind of rice. They are actually ground corn. There are many arguments about whether the best kind are those that are 'speckled' - which are my favorite because of the texture, or the grits that are bright white. The speckle is really the corn bran and the tip cap from the corn kernel and is noticed on grits that are stone ground.
