Just one week ago the Hang Ten Grill opened in Carolina Beach to rave reviews from locals and visitors who have found that the newest restaurant in town is offering delicious fare for breakfast lunch and dinner in a fun and friendly environment right next to the beautiful Carolina Beach Lake.  The Hang Ten is a surfer inspired restaurant but you by no means have to be a surfer to enjoy it.  The comfortable atmosphere is a highlight of the Hang Ten but the real reason to come back again and again is the food. 
The menu at the Hang Ten covers the spectrum from a full breakfast selection to thick and juicy burgers and tasty sandwiches.  Local owners and operators of the Hang Ten, Jeff Hogan and Bre Danel, wanted to give the community a casual and relaxed dining option with great tasting menu items that were all reasonably priced.  With the amazing taste of their fresh hamburger patties, fresh made sandwiches, and more it is amazing that there is nothing on the menu priced higher than $8.99.  Start your day off at the Hang Ten Grill and enjoy one of the best breakfasts on the beach.  All of your favorite breakfast items are available like eggs, breakfast meats, fluffy buttermilk pancakes, perfectly cooked French toast, stuffed French toast, waffles topped with fresh fruit, omelets made to order with your choice of fillings, biscuits and gravy, and various breakfast sandwiches.  If you like a big breakfast to fuel your body then get the “Hang Ten Breakfast,” which includes two eggs, your choice of sausage or bacon, your choice of hash browns or grits and two of their tasty pancakes. When you come back for lunch or dinner you are still welcome to order off of the breakfast menu if that’s what you’re craving, but the rest of the menu boasts many selections you have to try.  Start off your meal with an appetizer like their fried pickles, loaded nachos or the soon to be famous wings.  If you think yourself to be a wing connoisseur then you must try their own Alan’s Hang Ten’s Signature Hot Sauce.  The perfect combination of flavor and heat make this sauce a definite favorite.  They also offer a Buffalo Sauce, Korean BBQ sauce, and a Honey BBQ sauce.  You can also get chicken tenders tossed in your favorite sauce. 
The Hang Ten Grill specializes in burgers and sandwiches.  All burgers are made from fresh patties and at half a pound many people have trouble finishing!  You are welcome to get your burger any way you like it but the Hang Ten has come up with some awesome creations that put the mundane to shame.  One such burger conceived by the Hang Ten is the “Gnarly Burger.”  The “Gnarly” is really as good as its description sounds, a soy sauce basted burger topped with avocado, bacon, melted Swiss cheese and a tantalizing wasabi mayo.  Other great selections include “the Day After,” which boasts melted pepper jack cheese, bacon and a fried egg between two buns, and the “Heart Attack,” which tops your burger with sausage, ham and bacon as well as your choice of cheese.  If you always have trouble deciding between a burger and seafood for lunch or dinner the Hang Ten has a solution.  The “Surf and Turf” burger is a masterpiece of a beach burger with fried shrimp and melted cheddar jack cheese on top of your half pound patty.  Never compromise again when you can get the best of both worlds at the Hang Ten Grill.  You have the freedom to substitute any of the burgers on their menu with a 3-grain veggie burger or order any burger without the bun.  If you’re not in the mood for a burger they have plenty of sandwiches from BLT’s to Shrimp Po’ Boys.  They offer Panini sandwiches, grilled chicken sandwiches, and mouth watering Philly or chicken cheesesteaks.  All of their burgers and sandwiches come with your choice of the Hang Ten’s own hand cut fries or chips and a pickle spear and all of their sandwiches are also available as wraps.  Wash down your food with one of their 6 beers on draft or the wide variety of bottles.  They also offer a wine selection.  The Hang Ten has an outstanding outdoor seating area with protection from the sun.  It’s the perfect place to take a break from the heat this summer and refuel with a snack, a drink or a complete meal. 
The entire restaurant has televisions visible and you can watch any sports you want while you enjoy your meal.   
The Hang Ten Grill offers an extensive kid’s menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner with plenty of choices for the “Little Surfers” and “Little Guppies.”  Bring your kids to the Hang Ten for breakfast and they can get kids sized waffles, silver dollar pancakes with sprinkles, eggs any way they want them or even cereal and each comes with their choice of bacon or sausage and a drink for only $4.99.  Make sure your kids start each day the right way with a filling breakfast at the Hang Ten.  When you bring the kids for lunch or dinner they have plenty of options from which they can choose.  They offer popular kids favorites like chicken tenders, grilled cheeses, and kids sized burgers as well as other items like hot dog sliders, mac n’ cheese wedges, corn puppies and more.  There is always something fun and delicious on the menu which your child will love.
