Highly recommend the blackened fish tacos and the bang bang shrimp wrap. Their menu features something for everyone. Don't ever be discouraged if there is a wait. It's definitely worth it. The...

We eat here every single day of every single trip to OBX! Nicest owners and staff on the island. Ok about these shrimp tacos..they are the world's best shrimp tacos...huge portions, fresh, fun, and pure deliciousness! Wraps are great too...today we tried the shrimp corn chowder... .fantastic! Can't get enough of this place!

Fresh food, fresh made to order. Limited hours; sign on the door says 'we are Not fast food ' Each order is made fresh to order so you will wait but it will be worth it! You're probably on vacation so stop in, relax, and enjoy! And order the fish tacos, they Rock!

While staying in Buxton on vacation, we asked 'Where's the best place for lunch?' We were told Buxton Munch is the place to go. It is the place to go!

My wife and I stopped here before visiting the light house. I had the homemade tuna and my wife had the shrimp tacos. Very generous portions and very tasteful. Service was very attentive. We would recommend this restaurant. I would skip the tortilla chips.
