Good fish tacos and wraps

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.

We went there Friday night and had a lovely dinner. The service was prompt and the food very good. However, we expected to use our International Dining Club coupon. When we tried, the server brought us a menu and pointed out that there was a disclaimer saying they no longer honored it. Bring a minifying glass if you expect to... More

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with our dinner. The blackened tuna was one of the nightly dinner specials and the rock fish is on menu. Both were absolutely delicious and we could not have been more pleased with our dining experience at Food Dudes! Definitely on our list of favorite obx restaurants! A must try!

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.
