WINTERVILLE — A favorite Winterville restaurant has returned following an 11-year hiatus.

CD’s Grill returned in May and the Winterville Chamber of Commerce officially welcomed owner Derek Manning and his parents, Lawrence and Patsy, back to town at a ribbon cutting.

“We are so happy to have you back,” chamber director Debbie Avery said.

Winterville Councilman Tony Moore added, “This is an exciting day. Lawrence is a successful businessman.”

Manning grew up observing his parents’ work ethic. He was 11 years old when CD’s Grill first operated in the Food Lion shopping center on Old Tar Road and later CD’s Chicken & BBQ on Mill Street.

The 29-year-old Ayden native owns and operates CD’s Automotive on U.S. 264, located between Greenville and Washington, N.C. He has been in the automotive business for 15 years.

Winterville has always held a special place in his heart, so when he approached his parents about re-launching CD’s Grill, Winterville was his only location choice.

“It has always been a goal of mine to bring CD’s back to Winterville,” he said. “We opened May 29 and have been blessed. I’m very thankful for the community’s support.”

CD’s Grill operated from 1998 to 2003. CD’s Chicken & BBQ closed in 2007.

Many of the restaurants’ original clientele has returned and many remember Manning as a child.

“It is amazing,” Manning said with a smile.

CD’s Grill employs 10 people. Manning said he is thrilled to work alongside his father each day.

“It’s a family-oriented business,” he said.

Lawrence is proud of his son and his desire to re-open the restaurant that he and his wife named after their children — Chris and Derek.

“Derek has done a great job. We had a good following in 1998,” Lawrence said, adding he thrilled to see many familiar faces in the restaurant again.

CD’s Grill serves breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is served from 6-10:30 a.m.

The lunch menu features a daily special, plus hamburger steak, fried pork chops, fried shrimp, fried trout, fried chicken and more. Cabbage is served daily.

“Hamburger steak is our top seller,” Manning said, followed by cheeseburgers.

CD’s Grill, 111 E. Fire Tower Road, Winterville, located in the Wintergreen Commercial Park, is open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Thursday and from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

For more information, call 689-6713.
