This is a great hole-in-the wall restaurant. There's a eclectic selection of food fo such a small place and the service was excellent. It's very casual and there are only about 8 tables. A good selection of bottled local and craft beer, but I had the $2 PBR. My wife had a local white beer that was very tasty. The... More

A small (okay, very small) establishment with unique beach/surf-inspired decor. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of. The food was definitely homemade with fresh ingredients, and the portions were generous. Shrimp and Grits and Fresh Fish Tostada were good, the Shrimp Spring Rolls and Southwestern Chicken Corn Chowder were great. The... More

My friends and I dropped in for lunch on a weekday recently. This is a small, casual place located in a small strip mall. Food Dudes has a nice selection of local brewery beers and daily specials. I chose the mahi-mahi fish tacos, and boy, they were delicious! My friend ordered the blackened tuna wrap, and the fish was cooked... More

I'm really digging this place, and I'll make it a point to come back on these legendary taco nights! I met a friend for brunch, and I'd never had eggs benedict before, but I gave them a shot with lump crab. YUM! It's my new favorite! Sweet potato and ham biscuits with apple butter were fabulous. I'll be back!

Food Dudes was recommended to us by family member who spends a lot of time in the area. We have eaten there twice this week. Both the crab cake salad and the blackened mahi mahi with a grits cake were delicious! On Thursday, we arrived promptly at 5:00 for taco night. Surprisingly, the grilled fish taco was much better than... More

If you are out and want great food and can do without the romantic atmosphere, do not pass the Food Dudes by. The establishment is in a strip mall and is very unassuming. They do have service at tables so it is a sit down restaurant, but limited space. All that aside the food is great. You can go up... More

My wife and I drove 60 miles up from Avon to have dinner here. We have eaten here previously about 4 years ago, while we were staying at the Atlantic Inn, two blocks away. (Those owner had clued us to the place.) We were amazed at the originality and presentation of the food 4 years ago and still are amazed... More

We ate there 2 times during our stay on the Banks July 19-24, and hit the first time by accident and thought they were closed. How great they were not!! Excellent food, great service and good beer. Waitress was attentive and when we wandered back in 4 or so days later she recognized us and we got the same table... More

The food is pretty good, but nothing we can't get elsewhere for less. The portions are good with some items, not so good with others. The place is small. We didn't have a problem getting a table... Just seemed tight. Considering all factors, we felt Food Dudes is a little over-priced (even by OBX standards). We might eventually get around... More
