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

Best fish tacos Ever! Rockfish was outstanding. Don't be fooled by the location...it's worth the wait. Super friendly staff!

Love the menu and the food tastes are exceptional. The space is small and we don't hesitate to do "take out" just for the flavors. Lunch is my favorite meal and Food Dudes even provides great vegetarian plates. Don't miss it.
