 Opened in October of 2010, The Main Street Grille was inspired by the Hit TV Food Network Show, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Owners Tom and Roselie Halik wanted to have a little place where folks could feel at home and eat well prepared food in a comfortable setting at reasonable prices. Featuring a diner/luncheonette setting, a casual menu and a variety of freshly baked goods, The Grille has become a hangout for locals and visitors alike.

After graduating from culinary school in Paris, Tom spent the next twelve years behind the stove in fine dining. Having met His wife Roselie while working at The Fifth Avenue Epicure in Manhattans Flat Iron District, They launched Just Rugelach In the summer of 1995. A graduate of The University of Santo Tomas in Manila, Roselie earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, and became the Artistic face of the Bakery that would become an overnight success.

After fifteen years doing business in the metropolitan area, and having lived through 9/11,the couple chose Wake Forest as the place to raise their children in a gentler, softer way of life. They sold the bakery in 2008 and began to enjoy the southern ways of life here in North Carolina.

The Grille has become not only their livelihood, but a place where they see familiar faces and enjoy the company of customers, many who have become good friends. The staff at the Grille is friendly and attentive while maintaining a casual, local atmosphere. The Grille is often frequented by the next generation of foodies, their children. LeighAnn, Samantha, Thomas and Harry are always ready to welcome newcomers with a smile as they enjoy being able to tell their friends about the Grille, and eating fresh hot donuts. The entire family and staff look forward to serving you.
