Stop by with the family for a quick bite...we lingered. Really cool food. Inventive and tasty daily specials. We had the mahi-mahi wrap...delicious! We are adding it to our list of 'must eats' while on the Outer Banks.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We had previously eaten here for Sunday brunch which was also a great eating experience. This time it was a mid afternoon lunch. This place is frequented by lots of locals for a very good reason. The food is excellent!! We chose the Blackened Shrimp Quesadillas with Gouda... More

Ate lunch here with two family members on 9/19 for the second time. My wife had tuna tacos, my daughter a seared tuna wrap, and I had a mahi wrap. They were all nicely prepared and presented with fresh ingredients and very filling. Taste was excellent as was the service. We'll keep coming back!

We ordered two carry out meals for lunch. The first was a grilled chicken sandwich topped with avocado spread, lettuce, tomato and melted Provolone. The sandwich was a filling portion, tasty, but not spicy at all. The second meal was a jerk chicken wrap with mango- pineapple salsa, greens and jerk seasoning. The wrap was spicier than expected, but had... More

I am so thrilled our hotel recommended this little gem! It is a small place that we may have missed otherwise. We went for lunch today and I can not say enough about it. The wait staff was super friendly and the premises was super clean. The decor was perfect for a place on the beach....loved watching the big screen... More

My husband and I went in for a late dinner. I had the crab cake salad special and my husband had the flounder tacos special. We took a slice of chocolate silk pie with us to enjoy later. Everything was delicious! We discovered this place last year and really wish we had found it sooner! It is small with limited... More

I was feeling indecisive about what to order for dinner when we visited Food Dudes... so I went with the basic chicken sandwich... I was pleasantly surprised that it was very good. The avocado salsa was the icing on the cake! It was delicious! My husband ordered the fish sandwich and liked that very much as well. The atmosphere was... More

Great small place! Surprised to find such a good place on parking lot. Fish taco and crab cake salad was great.

The girls at Shutters recommended we stop by here and boy were they right. You would not think such good food could be found in a tiny strip mall but it is. Big portions meant a second meal for us later on. We will be back.

Thank schopin
