FAVORITE LUNCH JOINT IN THE ENTIRE OUTER BANKS!

Not only the best fish tacos, hands down, but one of the best things I've EVER eaten (I'm 46, with gourmet chefs and CIA trained people in my family.). The atmosphere is laid back, the kids were right at home (we sat at the bar!), the service was excellent. I got so serious about my taco experience... read more

We love coming here for lunch. It's always so delicious. We also love the eclectic decor, lots to look at and discover. The fish tacos are amazing, so is the sesame chicken wrap with plum sauce. You won't be disappointed or leave hungry!

We really enjoyed our lunch here! Our waitress was very sweet and kind. We don't eat gluten, and had no problems adapting items from the menu to our tastes. The restaurant is filled with eclectic decorations that amused us while we ate.

My family - 2 adults, 2 kids & a baby - just tried to eat here and we basically were turned away because of the large size of our party. Seriously?? We're not a party of 2, but also not a group of 10. It's lunchtime and this is a popular place, so I absolutely didn't expect to be seated... More

We weren't being rude, and we weren't turning away your business, but apparently you chose to take it that way. We were simply being honest about how we instantly packed out, and when everyone comes in all at once, it is going to be quite a wait for a party bigger than 2 or 3, and you had 5. Since... More

You might miss Buxton Munch if you didn't know about it. Located in a little strip of shops next to the ABC Liquor Store in Buxton. The atmosphere inside is laid back and beachy/hippie vibe. Small but colorful. They serve up simple but lovingly prepared and tasty dishes. Rightly so, their fish tacos have become a bit hit in these... More

Have been visiting the area for years, and cannot believe I have never eaten here. Went with family, and enjoyed a very tasty lunch.

Glad we stopped by! I had a fantastic crabcake/avocado wrap and my hubby raved about his fish tacos! His plate had a quite large portion of blackened fish (forget what kind) along with all the fixings. The kids had fish and chips and quesadillas. Was a hit with the whole family!
