Went here for dinner and drinks on a thursday night, which was a big mistake. The wait was about an hour and one member of our party got fed up and left. He had the right idea. Drinks were fine, queso was good, and I liked that a bottle of wine was $15. After waiting an hour we were seated... More

I was expecting Mexican food and it was more caribbean. I highly recommend the blackened fish tacos. A good casual place to go with kids. They did have a small outdoor sitting area. Margarita was good too. Tip- the rice is coconut rice but they do allow you to sub out chips and salsa but it will cost you

This is the 2nd year that my wife and our sister and brother in law have biked here or stopped while walking. The staff is UBER friendly, the fish tacos are king, the guac dip is AWESOME, and the blonde beer is just really really good! You should go right now. :D

Arrived on a busy summer night with a large group … served right away ... took food to go and eat at tables on the adjoining boardwalk. Everyone in our party was pleased and would return again … great food and frozen drinks

This is one of my family's favorite handouts in Duck. The food is great, not to expensive and you can have a beer on the boardwalk. If you are going be sure to try the fish taco's.

Great place to grab a quick lunch with the family while doing a little shopping. It's right off the main boardwalk area and features outdoor seating and a bar. They start you off with free chips & salsa, which are very good. The chicken quesadillas are fantastic and my wife's shrimp quesadilla was delicious. The kids' menu is very good... More

Mexican food overlooking sound in Duck, NC. Great place to watch sunset while eating casual Mexican food. We like the salsa, chips, cheese queso dip, fish burritos (huge), & crab pizzadilla! Great service and music entertainment too!

Stopped for a quick bite and beer on the way back to our room. Very good food, truly impressive portions (saldas, burritos were huge), and reasonable prices. Nice selection of drafts. Great view, except we couldn't sit in sight of it. Only suggestion is to add more seating if at all possible. There are only a handful of tables besides... More
