Ortega’z Southwestern Grille & Wine Bar
Ortega’z Grill brings some cultural spice to downtown Manteo. The specialty of this Southwestern-inspired restaurant is slow-roasted or grilled chicken, pork, carne asada and shrimp, which are served in burritos, chimichangas, nachos and other TexMex–style dishes. Other house-made specialties include a Southwestern-encrusted rib eye, a full rack of barbecued ribs, lamb shank, applewood-smoked pork chops, build-your-own kabobs, local seafood from Wanchese harbor, healthy salads and soups and more. Desserts include homemade cheesecakes, flan and churros (apple-filled pastries drizzled with caramel icing). Ortega’z serves beer and wine, with a wine list dedicated to the regions where the owners grew up – Northern California and Chile – and a good selection of wines are offered by the glass. The atmosphere is colorful and casual, and the restaurant gets a little more dressed up for dinner. In warm weather you can dine outside on the patio.
