Hominy Grill ~ Charleston Brunch #2

This little thing we like to call brunch is way more popular across the country than I actually realized.  Maybe it’s due to the fact that I never truly “brunched” growing up.  We were always so busy going from soccer tournaments to softball games to USC tailgates and football games and the list could go on and on.  Basically, going to brunch has been a whole new experience for me.  So obviously we made it happen not once, but twice.

IMG_7942Just down the road from where we were staying is the ultimate brunch (and dinner) affair – Hominy Grill.  It’s the place to go for biscuits or shrimp and grits or even a cup of jo’ and some eggs.  But let’s be honest, eggs are no fun when you only get to eat here once in your life.

IMG_7948IMG_7950Like many other popular brunch spots, you will arrive, only to find a wait.  Simply put your name in and consider ordering a beverage (or two) and relax.

Double thumbs up my friends.  We were quite impressed by the food and the folks helping us out.  I mean, our server practically almost pulled up a chair to swap stories with us, explain the menu, and make sure we were doing alright.  All the food recommendations were spot on – make sure to order the fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits – and we left very well fed.

  1. brunch is by far my favorite meal. especially on a weekend. when my sister moved to manhattan a a few years back she talked about how in NYC brunch is HUGE! so huge in fact that it’s a verb, “brunching”. i would call her on the weekends and i’d be like what are you up to and she’d literally say we’ll we’re about to leave to go brunching. hahaha.
