Low key but goood deli sandwiches. Eat in or take out. Quick, fast service with a variety of hot and cold sandwiches and specials. Cookies are really good.

I visited mid-afternoon on a weekday with a large group of family (9 people) including kids age 1-13.. You order at the counter and then seat yourself in another area. Inside seating is limited, and with two other families there it was about 60% full....Everyone was very happy with their sandwiches. This is a nice place to get quick, good food for hungry kids after visiting the festival park.More

Great sandwich spot. My grilled cheese was so good. I love gooey cheese. Kid loved her hot dog. Hubby loved The Godfather. Only negative was no ice in machine and empty iced tea. But that’s super small.

We were traveling with my daughter and friends for her annual OBX vacation which included a trip to Kill Devil Rum. We were looking for a close place to grab lunch and stumbled among this gem which was only a block away. All of our...sandwiches were absolutely fantastic, the service was fast and they were super friendly.More

In the heart of Manteo! Parking may be a challenge, but it was worth the hassle. The deli type sandwiches were good served with chips. I got the Godfather, my son got a BBQ Chicken. The decor was nice in the restaurant and very family...friendly and within most budgets.More

We chose the Hungry Pelican based on Trip Advisor recommendations. Good choice. I had chicken salad on a warmed ciabatta bun. It was excellent. The staff was friendly, sandwiches were prepared quickly, and there was plenty of seating.
