The grub-reboot utility may do what you want, and if not it should be
fairly simple to get what you want using grub's scripting capabilities
(grub 1.98 and up. grub legacy, 0.97, is no longer supported if that
is what you are using). Are you writing your grub.cfg manually or
using update-grub/grub-mkconfig?
