An FYI for you Elon folks: the cheese grit cakes at The Root are TO DIE FOR.
You may not be accustom to the Southern delicacy of grits, but in “cake” form they’re downright divine. I ordered them on a whim with a to-go order recently and was immediately wow-ed by the creamy texture of cheese grits deep fried in a crunchy, buttery shell. It’s like something I’ve never had before but will definitely be ordering from now on. Get at ’em.
