This place was recommended by our resort and it did not disappoint. We were told that the cooks were from the high end restaurants and we found that the food was excellent while the facility was unpretentious. Will definitely be eating here the next time we are on the Outer Banks.

We were happy to discover this place on our last night in town. Located in a nondescript strip mall near the beach. We were both looking for a good salad and found one here. We both ordered a grilled mahi salad and we were not disappointed- it hit the spot. Not a great deal of seating, but we sat at... More

Stop by with the family for a quick bite...we lingered. Really cool food. Inventive and tasty daily specials. We had the mahi-mahi wrap...delicious! We are adding it to our list of 'must eats' while on the Outer Banks.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We had previously eaten here for Sunday brunch which was also a great eating experience. This time it was a mid afternoon lunch. This place is frequented by lots of locals for a very good reason. The food is excellent!! We chose the Blackened Shrimp Quesadillas with Gouda... More

Ate lunch here with two family members on 9/19 for the second time. My wife had tuna tacos, my daughter a seared tuna wrap, and I had a mahi wrap. They were all nicely prepared and presented with fresh ingredients and very filling. Taste was excellent as was the service. We'll keep coming back!

We ordered two carry out meals for lunch. The first was a grilled chicken sandwich topped with avocado spread, lettuce, tomato and melted Provolone. The sandwich was a filling portion, tasty, but not spicy at all. The second meal was a jerk chicken wrap with mango- pineapple salsa, greens and jerk seasoning. The wrap was spicier than expected, but had... More

I am so thrilled our hotel recommended this little gem! It is a small place that we may have missed otherwise. We went for lunch today and I can not say enough about it. The wait staff was super friendly and the premises was super clean. The decor was perfect for a place on the beach....loved watching the big screen... More

My husband and I went in for a late dinner. I had the crab cake salad special and my husband had the flounder tacos special. We took a slice of chocolate silk pie with us to enjoy later. Everything was delicious! We discovered this place last year and really wish we had found it sooner! It is small with limited... More

I was feeling indecisive about what to order for dinner when we visited Food Dudes... so I went with the basic chicken sandwich... I was pleasantly surprised that it was very good. The avocado salsa was the icing on the cake! It was delicious! My husband ordered the fish sandwich and liked that very much as well. The atmosphere was... More
