OMG! The sandwiches here are to die for! A local told me about this place and I am so glad he did! I stopped in and got the chicken salad sandwich and fries with the white sauce. The chicken salad was delicious and on thick...toasted bread. The fries are hand cut. The portions are huge! The food is fresh and delicious! I wish I had time to go there every day of my trip. It’s grab and go. They serve breakfast all day.More

Wonderful small market and deli. Food was incredible. Sandwiches are huge and made with fresh quality ingredients. Employees were very friendly and helpful. All basic grocery items are available. Everyone in my family was impressed with this place and we visited daily for the week...that we were in Waves.More

If your visiting Waves or Rodanthe and are looking for some groceries, stop in to the market and see if they have what your looking for. They do have a good variety of groceries to pick from. I myself just picked up some beer and...a few other things. There is a sandwich section where they make fresh sandwiches or burritos. I was told it is very good. Conveniently located, stop in an check it out!More

This place was a short walk from our vacation rental, and we visited it daily, sometimes multiple times. The sandwiches are great... good fresh ingredients, generous size. Got it in my head to make pizza and found everything I needed: OO flour, yeast, fresh mozzarella,...sausages, pepperoni, veggies. Also an extensive beer and wine selection. Staff were always friendly and helpful.More

We’ve been going to this place for a few years now. It never seems to disappoint me. Food is great from the deli and they have a little bit of everything from the market. Perfect place to stop when visiting waves!

This was our first stop after a long trip. We’re on vacation here and stopped to pick up a few things before checking into our house. Our GPS apparently took us in the wrong way and first thing inside the door the cashier instantly yelled...at us that she was calling the police to give us a $200 ticket. We had our kids and parents with us. She seemed drunk and the music was so loud you couldn’t even think. A lot of the shelves were bare anyway so needless to say we left. We’re from Alabama so we’re used to Southern hospitality…. This was NOT it! Wont be back! Hopefully it was bad timingMore

All the restaurants were closed by 8pm on a Saturday, so a few people suggested Waves Deli for sandwiches. Everyone who got burgers had rock hard hamburger buns. One person ordered a beef burger and got plant-based. One person got pork and couldn't stand the...taste of it. The fries were fine though. They do have a decent selection of snacks and alcohol.More

Besides the fact that they have a market for all the little items you might be missing, their sandwiches are huge and delicious. Definitely worth dropping in!

Super fresh, made to order sandwiches with freshly made bread. Tuna salad is made with yellow fin tuna!! Onion rings are battered perfectly and super delicious. The store has a little bit of everything and colorful local art. Great in-store sounds track.

Who knew? A 5-star chef-inspired meal from a strip mall deli market? We had this sensational scallop and seafood ceviche with homemade pita chips last night. Call ahead because their specials sell out fast. We will be getting carryout from here again tonight. And homemade...dips. Wow!More

Top notch sandwiches and specials. If your going to be visiting the area start following on FB and check daily specials. These guys are pros. And so unique. Everything is made when ordered and to go only. Grab lunch to go and head to the...water. Great stop for all beers and wines. Oh and they have an AC/DC pinball machine..(wouldn't sell it)More

We stopped in for a late afternoon snack. Grabbed a chicken burrito and can of beer. A pleasant surprise to find a good beer selection. Lots of options in fridge and also on shelves. The chicken burrito itself was very good. Stuffed solid and good...flavor. Reasonable priced for the quality of the burrito. Lunch sandwiches sounded good as well, Boars Head meats to compliment those. Overall prices good for a small market. Great place for a quick stop if needed.More
