We LOVED this little sandwich shop. Total beach atmosphere, great sandwiches - we did the fish taco plate, AWESOME. The prices were very reasonable and the service was super nice, super friendly. In our three days in Buxton, this was our favorite meal.

Buxton Munch has very good food-we love the quesadillas and fish tacos. However, the service is extremely poor. We waited 50 minutes for our lunch while those around us who arrived later were served first. A good meal was ruined by awful service. If you're going there, I recommend ordering ahead and getting take out.

Sorry your experience was not perfect. It is Memorial Day Weekend, a notoriously BUSY WEEK!!! And when everyone comes in at the same time, it can get a bit crazy in here. And larger parties take longer, as the kitchen is orchestrating all the different orders to come out at the same time. So sometimes other parties receive their food... More

Our family of 7 went for lunch 5/20/15 around 12:45. They sat us fairly quickly at the counter and promptly took our drink orders and then came back for our main order. Some of the items we ordered included the crabcake sandwich and the crabmeat avocado wrap-up. These were amazing! The lady beside me had the fish taco and she... More

The establishment was recommended by a former student whose family has strong roots in the OBX. Store front establishment with an'60s Art deco interior and quite small. But excellent food great prices. We were seated at 12:30 for lunch. When we left there was a waiting line. Many locals frequent the establishment. Enjoy!

With timely service and very friendly staff. There is a reason this is the number one rated resturaunt on TA. The Crabby Avocado Wrap was excellent. For those not wanting seafood the Hamburger and fries were spot on. Good food and value is hard to beat.

Good food, cute decorations, take out also. Not very many places to sit, so get there early. We were there off season, so no problem, but I would imagine it to be very crowded in the summer.

Love this place with its funky atmosphere, hearkening back to the sixties. Staff was friendly and prompt. Food was excellent; best fish tacos we'd had in a long time. Definitely will have a repeat visit next time we are here.

The exterior made me shy away for a moment but we were hungry and there, so we went in. So glad we did. I had a wrap and my husband ordered the fish tacos. Both dishes were good. The service was excellent.
