Run down and dirty. Has a lot of different things from beach supplies to eats. Just seemed dank and dirty. Better places to eat and get convenience items locally.

Don't listen to the negative Nellies, Winks is an Outer Banks TREAT. We'very been going there while on vacation for 25 years. Great selection of essentials, local vibe, very friendly cashier, and I told my wife I intend to contact our local foodie reporter (Norfolk Va) to suggest a review of the Deli. Seriously, that woman is a wizard. Delicious,... More

Not a full scale grocery, but a very good selection of basics and more. Nice, friendly staff. Good deli. Delicious looking fresh baked goods, but we abstained. We'll shop again when in the area.

Wink's has beach supplies, clothing, umbrellas, and fantastic food. Great seafood dinners to go. If you forgot something at the beach, Wink's has it. Fabulous pickles! Can't wait to get them every visit.

Had lunch specials very inexpensive and generous portions. The prime rib dinner on Friday was excellent and $5 for 1/2 pound of steamed shrimp was awesome. We bought several of the store brand jellies. Store employees were very friendly and helpful. Dogs are allowed to visit also.

I bet I have lunch here 1-3 times a week and I enjoy the rib eye steak nights. While it is not fine dining you do get a pretty good lunch special daily and they don't skimp on the portions. I often can't finish it all, but it's good. In the evenings they have snow crab or rib eye steak.... More

Yeah I know what you are thinking. This place is a restaurant? Not really. So it's just a grocery store? Not really. It's Winks. It reminds me of the small town, general stores. They have a lot of cute stuff for sale. Some of its cheap, some of its overpriced. They have a wide selection of beers. But guess what.... More

We stopped in here while across the street on the beach and realized it really wasn't worth our time. Pretty run down, not very clean and the cashier wasn't very friendly.

When I was a kid in Southern Shores and we visited our beach cottaqe, Winks and Andersons were literally the only places to buy food. Now the Outer Banks has at least one of everything. Patronize your local businesses, folks. This place is a classic.
