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

This place is located in a little strip mall next to the liquor store. It doesn't look too impressive from the outside. Don't let that fool you. The fish tacos were amazing. Super filling! We'll definitely be back next year!

I visited this restaurant last month and was disappointed with the service and the food. After seeing the rave reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor my friends and I decided to try this venue for lunch. Upon entering the restaurant we immediately encountered a crowd of people standing at the door awaiting a table. There was a lady behind the counter... More

Yes, August is the busiest month everyday during summer. And we are just a little beach eatery! But we can't help that we are crowded. And we think that is a good thing for a restaurant, yes? And the manager wasn't being rude - it gets so noisy at times, she has to raise her voice to get people to... More

We enjoyed our fish and shrimp tacos. Tables were kinda small, not a lot of room for 2 adults/2 kids and their food, but it didn't bother us too bad. Service was quick. I'd definitely eat here again.

Right next to the Hatteras Light House... easy access... very, very busy; very friendly (exemplary); $10-$11 lunch items service was quite quick.. but they caution you to "slow down" and be patient fun place.... TA reviews were spot on... that's how we found it...

I went here based on the reviews. I was so craving crab cakes and I hate to say I was sadly disappointed. I guess I'm used to jumbo lump cakes and there is no comparison. These patties were just that mushed up bread with crab patties ....it's big but I'd rather have a smaller sandwich with more crab. So sorry... More

Sorry you did not like our Crabcakes. They still remain our best-seller after 15 years. And they are loaded with crabmeat. It is finely picked under a black light by our chef to remove every bit of the crab-shell pieces. Yes, there is some filler to hold it together. Yes, we are a small place. Yes, we get crowded, but...

Crab cake sandwich was one of the best ive had. The portions are big so may think of splitung 2 items between three people. Great lunch spot for a couple or small group. If large party may want to get it to go and sit on picnic tables outside

I had fried shrimp tacos, my wife had a crabby patty. Both were delicious, generous portions. Very reasonably priced. Staff is friendly and courteous. Restaurant is small, but clean. You will not regret lunch at Buxton Munch!

I had the fish tacos there. It was a huge plate. Too much for me, but they were really good. I'm not normally a fan of fish tacos. I really like the ambiance there, it look like a surf shack.

We are so glad you liked our fish tacos, even though you say you usually do not like them! Thank you for such a nice compliment! Also, we like that you enjoyed the atmosphere! We like a laid back mellow surf shack kind of feel, so you nailed it right on! Thank you again! Come back soon! More
