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

We stopped here on our way to the beach house. My wife goes every year and loves the casualness. I agree that's the vibe. Close to shopping if your waiting to check into your house. I gas taco salad with need. Tasty.

We went there for lunch. Service was outstanding - chips and salsa were brought to us right after we sat down. Spoiler alert - the burritos are HUGE and delicious! This is a come-as-you-are kinda place. I would go again.

What a great location on the bay. Service was good, had to wait 15 minutes for table and had a cold beer. The burrito was huge, had the other half for breakfast the next day.

I think about these fish tacos for a year until I get back to the Outer Banks.... For many years they have been so awesome. Not this time :( i think the shells used to be flour and now they're soft corn. The whole thing was mushy. The fish was OK and the sauce was tasty. The chips are good... More

Service was horrible. Inattentive wait staff. Fish tacos were very skimpy, soft tortilla shells were soggy and cold obviously never heated prior to food being put in them. Nothing in the tortilla other than a small chunk of fish and some watery orange colored sauce that was too heavy on lime. Cheese quesadillas my son ordered literally had no cheese... More

I thought the view (right on the water) was better than the food which was average. It was an okay place to stop for lunch,

Wait staff was indignant; fish tacos were cold. Cheese quesadillas were so hard and dry, they were not eaten by my daughter. We will never eat here again.

Restaurant was late opening up as manager had the keys and was late getting to work. We ordered fish tacos that were served on corn tortillas that fell apart when touched.
