Was as advertised. We had fish tacos ( grouper) and shrimp tacos. Both were great. They give you a huge dish with everything you can imagine for a taco and you “ roll your own”. We couldn’t eat it all but boxed what was left...for dinner. Small fun place, nice people.More

We visited Buxton Munch for the first time today - wished we wouldn’t have waited so long. Hubby got bacon cheeseburger and fries and I got the fried flounder basket. Everything was super fresh and cooked to perfection. Not only that but our waiter was...great and the restaurant decorated so cool - eclectic retro items and beachy decor! Also great music playing! Very reasonably priced with huge portions! Will visit again soon.More

We just left Buxton Munch and I had the BEST quesadilla I have ever had. My friends ordered wraps that were delicious according to them and looked the size of a fat brick and another had shrimp tacos,, THE BEST SHRIMP TACOS EVER!!! The service...was great even after knowing they were running the whole place short staffed with 3 total running the show. One up front, one cook, and one server and they rocked the place!! Show your love by stopping in with patience and you will NEVER BE DISAPPOINTED. Fresh baked cookies and cheesecake to die for!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!More

Made my first visit to Buxton Munch today. Initially I was planning to do take out, but was pleasantly surprised to find plenty of seating. So I sat at the bar area and ordered the shrimp corn chowder and their fish of the day (grouper)...in a wrap. If I could figure a way to have that chowder shipped to my house I would! So good! That goes for the wrap too. Everything I had was fresh and well prepared. The owner and staff were friendly and accommodating. I’m already planning my next meal there!More

We had to stop at Buxton Munch on our way home. It is a great little place. We always get fish tacos. They are wonderful. The staff does a great job with my handicap.

We always heard this place was great, but due to timing and Grandkids we never got to go until this year. We went without grands. This places food was even better than we could have imagined. My husband and started with fried oyster appetizer. They...were maybe the best I have ever had. The breading was light and they were fried perfect. I had the flounder basket and my husband ordered the shrimp tacos. We met the wonderful owner. She knows her food. Do not miss this restaurant! The absolute best food we had on our 10 day vacation. We will be going back there next year.More

Really good experience here and delicious foods. Good vegetarian options, had the hummus wrap & their homemade chips and salsa are so good. Dined in because their dining area is open again. Inside is so unique, love all the signs and decor

We’ve been here multiple times with large groups and loud kids. We’ve always been treated with care and the food is DELICIOUS! The homemade chips are Devine and we always get fish or shrimp tacos. The BEST in the OBX! It’s our go to spot...for lunch.More

Such a great restaurant, crew & vibe, and of course, food! We’ve eaten here multiple times, mostly in a group of 8-10. Their homemade chips are outstanding so Mabel sure you start with an order of those. But don’t fill up because their tacos are...incredible. I’ve had both the mahi and shrimp, blackened and grilled. It’s filling & fresh. The staff is welcoming and the food comes out quick. Make sure you go by 3:15 because they close up at 4. I assure you, if you try, it will become a favorite!More

Our first trip to Buxton Munch and definitely won’t be our last! Amazing food and service that was well beyond our expectations. Huge portions of fresh catch of the day served with plenty of accompaniments. We’ve been coming to Hatteras for years and don’t know...how we missed this gem! Looking forward to many more visits during subsequent visits. Can’t wait to tell our friends. Thank you for a wonderful meal! Beth and Scott Newark, DEMore

This is my go-to place to eat on Hatteras Island. The fresh seafood - and Crabby Patty” sandwiches are generously portioned and made fresh while you wait. This year it has been Grouper and Mahi-Mahi. The service is top-notch - you don’t have to ask...for your iced tea glass to be refilled. The best bargain on Hatteras!More
