Best burger on the beach

We stumbled onto Arts after dinner one night and based on what we saw while seated at the bar we returned. The burgers are large and hand made patties. Fresh. Hot. And just done well. Not sure what they do to the fries but they are really good too. Beer selection is good as well. Casual fun spot.

Art's was a tiny little place that felt like where the locals would hang. The food was AMAZING, with hand cut french fries and huge, cooked-to-order delicious burgers. The cook came out to take our order, and everyone there was quite nice. It was very affordable, too. Nice beach vibe and clean.

A great little out of the way place right across from the beach. Also had lunch there and it also has a bar. The breakfast was plentiful and the coffee was very good. Great people. Neil made a great Carolina burger. Breakfast was great too but I can't remember the gentleman's name that made it.

A great breakfast. Pancakes are exceptional. Hash browns were fantastic. Good price. Nice to sit outside on a warm, sunny morning.

Found this place by googling "Burgers on the Outer Banks". Art's place was rated very high on several sites.The burgers are amazing and the fries are their equal. Friendly staff. Not a very big place. We went for lunch around 2:00, so it was fine, but I can see where it could get real crowded very quickly.

This is one of our favorite places we visited on our trip. The burgers were amazing, the fries were amazing, the atmosphere was great, the view from the top of the deck was breathtaking, the open mic night at Monte holds was so fun, and the staff was very friendly. We will be back!

The fries were simply amazing, but like other reviewers mentioned, little awkward when you walk in. Their slogan "locals welcome, tourist tolerated, sometimes" was accurate. Small eating area, don't take a large party.

This is exactly what we look for when we need breakfast. We recently visited and came back the next morning as well. Definitely a colorful local place, mostly local crowd in the off season, small, but quite friendly and hospitable. Sit at the bar to converse with the staff, or at a table. Either way we had good service and... More

Visited with my husband and two daughters, ages 5 and 7. The burgers and fries were excellent and the beer selection very good. The waiter and cook were very friendly. Cool vibe! We will definitely come back.
