The whole jumbo spicy smoked hot wings are great - expensive, but great. So is the chicken BBQ. Not much of a place to sit and eat, so take it home.

Besides the normal fare, they have excelled BBQ ribs and smoked chicken for eat-in or carry-out. Good staff. Good food.

Small joint, big flavor. A few items on menu not available, and as the few tables filled service slowed down - only one server. FREEZING in restaurant because each time the door opened it brought in the cold blustery air, bathroom was the warmest place! Pulled pork was delicious, onion rings were probably out of a bag and nothing to... More

We always eat here at least once on vacation. The pulled chicken and/or pulled pork sandwiches are great...as are the ribs. Breakfast is a great value and tasty. The parking lot is a little tricky on busy traffic days. Highly recommend!

Have eaten here many times, breakfast is their best meal. Excellent pancakes, eggs and biscuits. I think there are better options for BBQ. The service has always been good. This morning excellent. The receipt said Ron, but I don't think the waitress's name was Ron. She made it worth the stop, as many locals can be elitist.

Was captured by the sign that said "Carolina BBQ", so thought I'd give it a try. Was not disappointed. The pulled pork BBQ has that tangy vinegar based sauce which gives the meat a bit of a bite. Of course if you want it sweeter, they have that kind of sauce too for you to add. Couldn't make it for... More

Stopped here for breakfast this morning. In summary: a small (only 8 tables) no frills place serving simple, good food at a reasonable price. Service was quick and friendly. We were served drinks right after sitting down. Hubby, the coffee connoisseur, declared the coffee to be “good” though he greatly dislikes drinking coffee in Styrofoam cups. The water for my... More

Although located in a prime tourist location, the Duck Deli manages to maintain it's down-home feel and charm. The food is good - not exceptional, but good. The prices run a little high, but it's to be expected for the area. It gets very crowded, so be sure to arrive early. The staff are very nice without being "syrupy" sweet.... More

If you're looking for cloth napkins and upscale décor, this is not your place. But if some fabulous smoked barbeque, paper plates, banter from the locals, and wooden signs that ready "Rowdy children will be used at bait" is what you're in the mood for, don't miss Duck Deli! Breakfast includes hard-to-find Scrapple, a favorite if you're from the Del-Mar-Va... More

This was our first dining experience in Duck, and what a nice surprise. It's a small place, but the chicken wings are to die for. We liked them so much we had to ask for the secret ingredients in the dry rub, which they finally shared when we promised not to post them online. You have to go yourself to... More
