Look at the Processing Toolbox and you may choose many algorithms without the need of a plugin
You don't need a plugin, just use the toolbox:
(QGIS) Geoalgorithms > Vector creation tools > Create Grid
In QGIS 2.10 this is called 'Create Graticule'
Vector grid creation has been incorporated in QGIS for a long time:
Vector -> Research Tools -> Vector Grid
Note that the default grid spacing of
0.0001000000 units of the layer CRS is too small in most cases.
You might want to use
Vector -> Geometry Tools -> Densify Geometries afterwards if you need to reproject the grid to another CRS where the lines should appear bended.
In QGIS 3.4, in the Processing toolbox, look for
Vector general >>
