Best food on the Island!

We tried a lot of restaurants on Ocracoke and Eduardo's was by far my favorite meal on the island.

I will definitely be visiting again with a trip to Eduardo's planned.

Stopped for lunch after reading reviews. It is a trailer/food truck type building, but with picnic tables outside. My husband and I both got the tuna tacos with Mango salsa. They were amazing, very fresh tasting! My only reason for 4stars instead of 5 was the outdoor atmosphere caused a lot of flies. Would go again

One of our most favorite places to purchase delicious food. If you bring a platter, they will arrange the food for you to serve at home. Worth the wait!

Amazingly fresh ingredients, we loved it so much that we ended up making daily visits to Eduardo's. You must try it before leaving the island!

The food is soooo good. It has a B sanitation grade so I can't give it five stars because what the heck man, clean it up. There is still a crazy line every time we go in spite of this and there is a reason.

My family and I recently stop by the Eduardo's Taco stand for a quick bite to eat. It's located in a parking lot near a local grocery store. First thing we learned about this stand you can't be in hurry for that taco... Everything is made to order and that can take awhile. We order the following - grilled scallops... More

Best Mexican flavors I've had since I lived in Mexico 45 years ago. Very authentico. Eduardo was there preparing each dish.

This is the best place to eat on Ocracoke Island. Amazing food. Woman working at the counter was a little stressed, but the food more than made up for it.

There is a good reason Eduardo's is the top rated restrauant on the island. Everything we have ordered has been great. Today I picked up a shrimp and bacon quesadilla. Absolutely wonderful. Call ahead for quicker service and bring cash. They don't take credit cards.

Eduardo's was one of the places we just had to get dinner from again after trying it while on vacation in 2013. But we would have to wait till the end of our week on Ocracoke to get our take-out dinner, since they were doing renovations at the food truck for most of the week. Not sure if we would... More
