“Grits is the shit” ("Grits are the shit")

The expression “is/are the shit” means that something or someone is the ultimate, the top or the best. “Grits is/are the shit” is a popular expression; “grits” can be a singular dish ("is") or a plural ("are").

“Grits are the SHIT” was cited in print in November 2005.


Urban Dictionary
