Love the menu and the food tastes are exceptional. The space is small and we don't hesitate to do "take out" just for the flavors. Lunch is my favorite meal and Food Dudes even provides great vegetarian plates. Don't miss it.

Beach grill type place, not fancy. The fish tacos were the best we had on our trip to the OBX, so much so that we returned for a second go-round...we went between lunch and dinner times, so seating wasn't a problem. The wings were also very good and a generous portion. The waitresses were very efficient and attentive. There are... More

Had heard through friends the food was good, so we decided to give it a try. And what a surprise! The seating is limited but the food is great. We had fish taco's with rice and beans and fried rock fish with fries. The rock fish was amazing, best I have ever tasted, it was flaky and perfectly flavored. The... More

I wasn't expecting much, we just needed some quick take out in between OBX adventures and sent our friend out to find us something. He came back with Mahi Mahi wraps and Shrimp quesadillas and they were amazing! I wish we were in the area for a longer period of time so I could try some more of their dishes!... More

My family and I went to Food Dudes Kitchen based upon the reviews on Trip Advisor and we we not disappointed. Our meals -- jerked chicken wrap, shrimp enchiladas, crab cakes, pulled pork tacos -- were tasty and plentiful (we took some home with us.). There was an eclectic selection of beers, most of it brewed in NC. (Try the... More

July 31 Lunch **** Food Dudes Kitchen 1216 S Virginia Dare Trail, Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948 (252) 441-7994 Small restaurant with bottled beer. Very good lunch food for a very reasonable price. It was recommended to us by a local bakery/coffee shop that did not serve sandwiches. Four stars based on comparison to others of this type.

Another great recommendation from TA. We ate here with our 1 yr old. I got the jerk Mahi-mahi and my husband got the jerk Tuna sandwich. Both were excellent although the chips weren't that great. The place is small but wasn't crowded when we got there. Quick service & friendly staff.

You're truly in the know of OBX if you eat here! It's in an unassuming strip mall across from the beach, but it has great food at reasonable prices. The best thing is that you can carry out and bring it to the beach if you want. I highly recommend the mac-n-cheese appetizer and one of their burgers. Also a... More

Ate here for an early dinner. Small place in an unassuming strip of stores. Great decor for a "beach" hangout. Staff was very friendly. We had the fish tacos and a fish sandwich. Good size for the price and very tasty. We recommend and will probably return.

I've eaten here many times over the years but for some reason I never thought about reviewing until today. The food is always consistent and the service is friendly. I have to recommend the bacon cheeseburger with avacado salsa. Very good burger.
