We were here on a cold, rainy December day--not much choice about where to eat. They serve Boars Head meats, so the sandwiches are good. All were priced well and two of our group had one of the daily specials: mushroom burger and two chili dogs. The french fries are tasty and plentiful. The sandwiches are all about $7-8 and... More

While shopping in Manteo we stopped here for lunch and was not disappointed. Had been here years ago and was glad the sandwiches were still wonderful. Good food, fast service and reasonable prices! We would go back

A nice selection of sandwiches, soups, salads and seafood specials are the hallmark of this eatery with patio seating on the waterfront. Everything is reasonably priced and delicious, including my favorite the grilled cheese and sauerkraut sandwich with a side of chips and pickle. Conveniently located amongst historic Manteo's museums and shops, Poor Richard's does a brisk business for locals... More

Hidden gem amongst some shops in Manteo, NC. We visited on a perfect weather which would have made anything taste better. I got the hot turkey sandwich special with spicy mayo that I loved, but the fries are second to none.

The best in Manteo, sad that they only open on. Sat during the autumn, best rye bread and the order is always done correctly.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch on the deck. The BBQ sandwich was huge and delicious. Their Clam Chowder was great as well. This restaurant is definitely a must try whenever you are in the area.
