Unless you know a local, you might have missed out on Food Dudes. I think the locals would really like to keep this one quiet, so that they would have a better chance to just walking in and eating. Seriously, just joking, this is the kind of place that you want to find at the beach - good value and... More

We had take-out from the Food Dudes. We got blackened Mahi Mahi sandwiches with mango salsa, which were delicious. Definitely worth visiting. Casual fun atmosphere.

This place is in a strip plaza that looks like it's next in line for demolition. Had it not been fir a word of mouth recommendation by a local and confirmation by a Trip a Advisor, I would have likely passed this place up. I am really glad I stopped in fir dinner as the food was very tasty and... More

Excellent food & service. Beachy atmosphere with Reggae music playing. Located in a strip mall. Kinda high price for lunch but it's a tourist area.

Captain of our fishing charter recommended this place to me. What a gem! Super laid back and very kind waitstaff. The place is decked out with some beautiful artwork Really nice selection of craft beer. The nachos are to die for, smothered in an amazing cheese concoction with sweet corn. My fish was fresh and cooked to perfection.....all for a... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. The place is very casual but the food is great. We had fish tacos, pepper salmon, quesadilla, mahi wrap, Mac n cheese, and loved everything. They have quite the beer and wine list, and the staff was great. The prices are very reasonable, yet a bargain for the quality of their food. This place... More

From the outside this place doesn't look like much. It's hidden away in a strip mall and from the outside looks unexceptional. But boy was the food great! Everyone in our party loved their meals. My dad said he felt his crab cakes were the best he's had in the Outer Banks and I loved the wings! The service was... More

Thank you Trip Advisor for highlighting this amazing little gem! We started w the Chili Garlic Shrimp spring rolls. Yum!! But these were just the opener to the best dinner of our vacation here. The fish tacos were the best I've ever had (grilled Mahi Mahi) & my husband's tuna special (w crab & avacado) was out of this world... More

We drive by this place every year and never noticed it until I read a review. It is in a "dead" strip mall with a shell shop and lamp store. Not where you would expect to find a really good restaurant. Service was great. Friendly staff. Good wings. Someone had crab cake salad and said it was real yummy. Will... More
