Harold and Cathy's is a great stop when you are in the vicinity of the Marine Corps Base at Quantico. This diner could have been a scene in Clint Eastwood's Heartbreak Ridge. The restaurant is a time warp. You almost won't stop, based on appearances...More

I don't know if they salt them as they cook, but they do offer grits, and they are good (I've had them a number of times).
