I found this restaurant (actually on yelp) for a place to take my kids for lunch. It is not located on the main strip, but along the road where the houses are. It's a small restaurant, so not sure how they would handle large parties. Fun decorations and a TV at the bar that had surfing competitions. We ordered chips... More

Loved the variety. The pulled pork was tender and juicy. The seafood was full of flavor. Definitely a "do not miss" while at OBX. It's a small place but worth the wait.

Like I said, came here for the tacos and wasn't disappointed. Yes, it's a small place in a small strip mall, but great nonetheless. Honestly, even if it was a one table place with a shedding dog for a server, I'd still go for the tacos (it's much nicer than that, fortunately)

Went to food dudes on their taco special night and was not disappointed. Very small place so don't be surprised if you have a wait. All ingredients were fresh and had great flavor. These "dudes" know what they are doing. Decent beer selection too. Highly recommend this place.

My wife and I chose this restaurant for dinner because of the excellent tripadvisor reviews. Driving up to the restaurant, we thought, "Hmmm… looks kind of small and dark from the outside -- hope it's as good as they say." Once inside, it was actually bright, warm, and cozy (see photos), and we received immediate attention from a very friendly... More

nice daily specials, very small, get there early or off times because very few tables. They have service that's OK but food quality makes up for that. Seriously stop in and enjoy the unique tastes and the hot sauce

My wife and I needed to grab a bite to eat since our breakfast at the motel had worn off and with the nasty weather (cold and rainy) we didn't want to drive very far. Food Dudes is close to the motel and has been a consistent favorite of ours on our trips to the Outer Banks. This time was... More

At the beach there are lots of nice looking expensive mediocre restaurants that could care a less that you return. Not this one! Inspired: the food was amazing Atmosphere: simple in the strip center - busy for a reason Food: wow! Service: awesome staff was attentive to all Return: you bet!!

Food Dudes was recommended to us several years ago by a local resident. What a find! We try to go there at least once during our stay and sometimes twice. Sort of reminds me of a local diner with a twist. A twist of excellent seafood, (mouth mouth is salvating as I think of their fish tacos) and good beer... More

And I am since my first visit. Always love a spot where you can sit at the bar when solo. Warm greeting and good vibes upon entering. Two specials that got my attention. I went with Miss Stephanie's suggestion; blackened mahi on a yummy Gouda grit cake topped with a delightful fresh salsa. I loved everything about this place! Plan... More
