Great little place for breakfast

Had breakfast here , not to fancy but good breakfast. Close to beach. Had breakfast burrito very good and fresh. Made whatever the kids wanted, pancakes. Don't even think it was on the menu. Very friendly.

We always enjoy fining in or taking out from Food Dudes. Excellent flavor in everything they prepare. The Tacos are a must. They also do a Prime a Rib and Soul Food night. Situated in a small strip mall. These dudes can cook!love the surfing videos behind the bar. Adds a cool vibe.

We frequent the Outer Banks area and tend to visit the same restaurants over and over again. We were determined to try something new this time and tried this place based on TA reviews. Let me preface this review with the fact that I am from VA and very picky about my BBQ. I usually never order BBQ in NC... More

This is in a strip of buildings and not too many seats but always have had a great meal here and the desserts are the bomb.

Must eat here! The pulled pork tacos were sooooo good!!! The pork was definitely slow roasted and seasoned perfectly. The rice and beans were delish as well. It is a small place on a small strip but very good homemade food.

We passed by this place looking for a place to have lunch and figured we would go in and give it a try. It did not disappoint! They had incredible food! It's a small place with fun artwork everywhere just one block from the beach. I could not believe how good the food was for such a small place. We... More

The restaurant looks like a small cafe...one that you'd easily pass by....but DON'T pass it up! The food was absolutely wonderful.

Good food. The menu hasn't changed much and is good but not great. Tiny restaurant. Kind of a long wait for the food or the table due to the size. I can't say I won't be returning but it's definitely not my #1 restaurant on the beach.

We dined here on a recent Monday night and ordered the salmon wrap and fish tacos. The food was fantastic. Our server Penny was very attentive and even gave us some nearby recommendations, She also told us about Taco Thursdays and showed us the taco menu for that night. We went back Thursday and enjoyed the brisket, avocado, seared tuna... More

Set in a very small strip shopping center, this likewise tiny restaurant has an eclectic mix of offerings, with more of a focus on seafood. My (fried) crab cake salad was fairly mild (trending towards bland),with an avocado ranch dressing. My wife's fried rockfish wrap with Gouda cheese was good in her view (less so in mine). Service was very... More
