Ortega'z Grill has brought cultural spice to Downtown Manteo. These people know how to fix local food with a southwestern flair, and a relaxed, casual atmosphere. You can enjoy lunch or dinner on the covered outdoor patio or in either of the two dining rooms. If you’re looking for a quick meal or a cold drink, head over to the ‘Wine Bar’ in the center of the restaurant. It’s where people gather - locals and visitors alike. Inside or out, the restaurant has a comfortable feel and a reputation for delivering exceptional food.
As one of The White Doe Inn's guest said, "Ortega'z Wild Mushroom Cheesecake! (on lunch menu but had it for dinner) was amazing!" I would definitely agree ... a unique dish that is just incredible! On the ribs (wet or dry rub), well, unless you are a big, big eater, a half-rack is plenty enough! The salads are a meal unto themselves.
