My wife and I had been to the Outer Banks last year, and weren't planning to return this year. But... she saw a review of the Buxton Munch and was excited to try it. So, 350 miles later we were enjoying the best fish tacos...ever. The food was great, the decor was fun, and the owners were super nice! There are a few must-dos at OBX, and this now tops our list. We'll be working our way through the menu on future visits. Please note that this is a lunch place, and hours may be somewhat restricted, so it's good to check before you go. Most highly recommended.More

Whenever we go to the Outer Banks this is a must place to eat. The menu is so extensive it’s hard to decide what you want and it’s all wonderful. Don’t miss a visit here if you’re anywhere near Buxton North Carolina

Found this place after visiting the Lighthouse. I was honestly skeptical after seeing the sign announcing they were closing for the season after the next day. I was WRONG! The food was outstanding and plentiful ( to the point we did not have dinner that...night). Service was excellent and quick. If we are back in this area again we will return.More

College friend reunion and visiting Cape Hatteras. We weren't familiar with spots that were open off-season and happened on this place. We ordered the shrimp tacos and corn chowder! We ate so fast I didn't get a picture but our food was just as advertised...in the online pictures we saw. The food was amazing! The portions were huge! The staff made us feel like family. We are definitely coming back! Can't wait!More

We read an article about this little lunch place being one of the best. After a chilly morning at the beach, we decided to try it out. It did not disappoint. I had the fish of the day wrap (it was grouper) and it's hands...down one of the best fish fillets I've had. My family and I will for sure be making this a yearly tradition.More
