As a former resident who went back to visit this past summer I was glad to find that no matter what changes on the island this place hadn't! My favourite lunch spot in Cape Hatteras by far, this place has a quirky fun atmosphere that's great to meet up with friends. My personal favourites are the sesame plum chicken wrap... More

We tried Buxton Munch on our 5th trip to the OBX and couldn't believe we hadn't been before. Our family of five all ordered fish or shrimp tacos. Fabulous!

So very glad you found us this time around on your vacation to the OBX! Even though we have expanded in size inside, we are still small, and kind of hidden, and we rely on the many friendly Locals who eat here to recommend us. (Thank you, Locals!) It makes us so happy to know that you will be coming... More

A friend raved about Buxton Munch so we decided to give it a try after another local favorite closed abruptly in the middle of lunch hour. The food was plentiful and fantastic! Worth the wait! The decor is Surfy and it couldn't be more fun!

The best fish tacos I have ever had. Fish was grilled and fresh with perfect tortillas and sides. Perfect place for lunch.

By far the best food I had in the OBX area!. Staff was pleasant, atmosphere was hippish. Great music selection, but the menu was great. I just had to have the crabby patties, very tasty. The fish taco was the best seafood we had on our vacation!

From the wraps to the fish tacos it's all good...more like fantastic. The decor is fun, wait staff friendly, and the owner always greets you and makes sure all's well. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

"Fantastic" is such a nice word, and we're so happy you used it to describe our food! Thank you! Also glad you like our decor and our friendly crew! Fall is so nice here. Slower pace. Mellow. Gives me time to greet everyone, as you said, to make sure all is well. Please come back again soon! More

There doesn't seem to be anything overwhelmingly delicious in a fried shrimp and guacamole wrap, but when the guacamole is fresh, the SHRIMP are fresh and lightly fried, and the wrap is cheddar, it jumps above average. The substantial wrap was delicious, and the pear smoothie (pear, vanilla yogurt, honey, from what I recall) was exquisite. Not too sweet, definitely... More

It pays to advertise (as this one does with a large sign out in front of the "strip mall" in which it is located) that you have a good rating with Trip Advisor, as it is the reason that we stopped in to have lunch after a trip to the Hatteras Lighthouse. Fish tacos are as good as advertised (if... More

We read about reviews for Buxton Munch and thought we'd give it a try. We were at the Outer Banks on our vacation and saw the parking area was full, so we figured that was a positive sign and it was. The place is not real big in size, but the quality of the food was very good. The first... More
