When eggs up grill was hatched, it cooked up a family recipe for success. Since the age of six, Chris Skodras spent many hours in his family’s restaurant being mentored by his grandfather and father. As a child, he swept the parking lot and washed dishes. By the age of 15, he was the short order grill cook, and the family tradition of making good food was officially passed on to a third generation. After years of working around the clock in the restaurant business, Chris and his wife, Pat, wanted to build a thriving dining business that didn’t take up their whole day. During a visit to Pawleys Island, South Carolina, they fell in love with the climate, the people, and the Lowcountry lifestyle. They moved to the South because they knew their breakfast and lunch restaurant would thrive here. Chris opened the first Eggs Up Grill with his wife Pat in 1986. They still own and operate the same Eggs Up Grill to this day, and are quite happy that the restaurant is open no more than eight hours a day. Now, they have the time to live each and every day sunny side up.
