Eggs Up Grill Opens In Clayton

Popular breakfast, brunch and lunch spot located in Clayton Town Center 

CLAYTON – Eggs Up Grill, a rapidly growing breakfast, brunch and lunch concept, is now serving the most important meal of the day in Clayton. Located at 12965 U.S. 70 Business in the Clayton Town Center near the Walmart Supercenter, the restaurant is the first for Franchise Partner Donny Nobles. This is the fourth Eggs Up Grill franchise to open in the Raleigh market, with an Apex location opening next month.  

A resident of Smithfield, Nobles’ career includes 12 years of service with the Army and the Department of Defense. He also worked in finance as a director of fiscal services for South Pasadena Unified, and as a consultant providing business advisory services assisting private and government entities.

Nobles first discovered Eggs Up Grill while dining as a guest at the Fuquay Varina restaurant. He says he appreciated the family-style environment and that it was “simple breakfast, done right.” He eventually became a franchisee and chose Clayton because of its need for better breakfast options.   

“Clayton is a growing community that is full of good people who want to enjoy a hearty American breakfast in a family environment,” Nobles said. “My family and are excited to bring Eggs Up Grill to the Clayton community.” 

With seating for 116, the 2,885 square-foot restaurant is designed to make guests feel at home in a light, bright and cheerful atmosphere. The Clayton restaurant serves guests seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., with dine-in, online ordering, takeout and delivery options available.

Eggs Up Grill caters events, big or small, with a menu featuring breakfast favorites like eggs, grits, home fries, biscuits and gravy and muffins. Salads and sandwiches are available for catered lunch.

With locations across the Carolinas, Georgia, Florida, Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, and soon entering Texas and Mississippi, Eggs Up Grill offers a unique experience for guests and franchise partners alike. Its great tasting food and drinks, uniquely friendly service and everyday affordability make Eggs Up Grill a number one choice for guests.  

The Eggs Up Grill Brand is all about neighbors serving neighbors. The Nobles family will serve the Clayton community by supporting veteran affairs organizations, first responders and area schools.
