Great little local spot

They have excellent fish tacos and THE BEST waffle fries on the island!!! The rest of the food, according to my wife and friends, is excellent as well...I stick to what I love...and I love their food.

Really enjoyed Taco Thursday - fun and delicious selection of unique tacos at a la carte prices. It's a small place so get there before peak dining times if you want a seat inside.

Great laid back spot. We were vacationing and went randomly on Taco Thursday. What a treat! Super friendly service too.

Still the best crabcake I have ever had. Follow them on FB for the daily specials. Taco Tuesdays are a must. Enjoy and tip well.

Little, tiny space; big, wonderful taste. There are only seven tables and 10 or so bar stools. Add waffle fries. For those who enjoy finding gems that are

Small place (six tables) in a small indescript strip mall. We had the mahi mahi tacos (grilled) and the mahi mani wrap. Each was excellent, the latter a little more filling. A Sunday nite dinner in late April. Good beer and wine choices, well priced. Very friendly wait staff.

Just discovered this great little spot! Had a nice piece of blackened tuna on a salad of fresh greens, roasted peppers, artichokes, and feta. Penny did a fabulous job of waiting on the whole place by herself. So good, that I will eat there again this week!

Another trusty tripadvisor recommendation. Great place to visit for lunch. They specialize in take-out so there are only a few tables. I'm sure it gets busy, but we didn't have any trouble getting a table. Their food is a fabulous tex-mex seafood and our server (who might have been the owner?) was happy to answer any questions we had about... More

My first time in the restaurant, I found the food to be great Tex-Mex style affair with a coastal influence - something different for the Outer Banks. There are about 10 tables in this restaurant, so you're almost guaranteed to have to wait. You may even have difficulty getting your name on the list like I did with servers acting... More

My husband and I ordered the salmon salad and the fried crab cake salad. Yum, yum. Come here after your visit to the Wright Bros. Memorial.
