For breakfast, lunch and dinner, Carolina Girls’ Grillin’ Café is always cooking up something good. Located just north of Wilmington, on the outskirts of Castle Hayne, this eatery has a ton of big flavor that belies its small stature.

Carolina Girls’ Grillin’ Café is the place to go to try basic southern cuisine at its best, and each menu has a lot of budget-friendly variety. Breakfast fans will find a huge array of more than a dozen breakfast sandwiches, like the classic ham and egg with mayo, or the breakfast BLT, as well as a range of omelets, plates, and hearty grits breakfast bowls. Lunch and dinnertime guests will find an equally dizzying array of options, which include big sandwiches, (including an entire category dedicated to beef sandwiches), burgers, and fresh tossed salads. Local favorites include the Chicken De-Light with spicy ranch and melted provolone, and the BBQ Beef Brisket with sautéed onions & melted Monterey Jack cheese on Cuban bread. Catering is also available for casual picnics or crowd-pleasing lunches, and there are even “drink combos” for a quick midday bite. Casual but always tasty, Carolina Girls’ Grillin’ Café is inspiring Wilmington residents to leave the heart of the city and enjoy a little home cooking with a nice side of southern hospitality.
