Fodor's Review

This local hangout is a shrine to the original 1968 film that starred John Wayne–-one of the restaurant's walls actually appears in the movie. The huge stone fireplace, second-floor outdoor balcony, and cozy interior would make even the Duke feel at home. The Grit serves cowboy-type fare—homemade chili, burgers (locals rave about them), and delicious chicken-fried steak—along with Tex-Mex offerings like burritos and tacos. You can also now get breakfast on summer weekends.
