Grits Fullerton Restaurant Review

: Located about a block west of downtown Fullerton’s congested bustle, this airy industrial restaurant provides an anchor to an unassuming, slightly retro quasi strip mall. Large floor-to-ceiling windows, flourishes of bright color and an open kitchen add congenial warmth to the space, which sets the ideal mood for the kitchen's array of brunch items. We suggest diving into Mexican-influenced finds like carnitas verde chilaquiles or the mole verde omelet with pepita dust. Adventurous diners may want to check out the bone marrow and waffle appetizer before diving into a classic like chicken fried pork or hangar steak and eggs. Like any proper brunch experience, patrons can pair their meal with bottomless mimosas if they so desire.
