We stopped in after visiting the Hatteras lighthouse, found the place based on TripAdvisor reviews & we drove past the place a few times while staying in the area. This place is great! They do a tremendous amount of business for such a small place....More

Tacos were probably the way to go and we chose crabby patty and wrap instead. Not bad, but after having Frisco Sandwich Shop's and the Blue Moon's crab cakes we just didn't think this one compared.

We wish you would have spoken up while you were in the restaurant so we could have addressed the issue. Hopefully we can serve you again, and you can try our Fish Tacos, as you mentioned in your posting.

Buxton Munch is very upfront that they are not fast food, but we didn't think the wait was that long for a sit-down restaurant. My husband and I both had the grilled fish tacos, and they were outstanding. I only wish we had been visiting...More
