Went for a quick lunch before returning home based on all the positive reviews. We were the first in for lunch and were served by an attentive waitress (Christine) who seemed to properly take our order. I requested a burger w/ grilled bun and fries well done (crispy) and wife ordered a turkey Reuben w/ chips. When the burger came... More

Went there for lunch and we were glad we did! Very small but lived up to its rep as best burger in town! Boys had wings which were served as a whole wing and they loved them, salads were excellent and the beer was cold. Great lunch

There are good burgers. There are great burgers. And then there's the best burger. Arts. However you get it topped (my personal fave is the pimento and bacon cheeseburger), you won't be disappointed. It is worth the wait. It is worth the crowd. Pair it with a cold beer, margarita, or bloody mary and you're livin'. Grab a spot on... More

Fun place to visit with great burgers, especially the Art's Special and the North Carolina. There was even food for small children to eat.

Stopped in for a late lunch and were seated promptly. It is a small business with just a couple of tables and bar seating. My father in law said that his hamburger was in the top 2 hamburgers he has ever eaten! My mother in law had the salad with grilled salmon( she is extremely picky). She had NO complaints.... More

We got carry-out for the whole family. Almost everyone ordered a burger, and we all enjoyed them. I most like going to restaurants when traveling, that are frequented by the local community. Art's is that kind of place.

We spent the morning on the beach and were wet sandy and hungry. We sat up on their roof top deck. It is small but perfect for our group of 6. I had quite possibly the best burger I have ever eaten in my 66 yrs of life. The place is small and local( not fancy), but oh the food.... More

Went to Art's for the second year in a row for breakfast while vacationing in OBX. The egg and cheese biscuit sandwich is delicious! My husband loves the homemade sausage patties. This place is a quaint little eatery and would recommend trying it if you are visiting in OBX.

Love the down home atmosphere. Food is prepared right at the kitchen behind the bar. No particular dress code. Very beach casual. Walls covered in old and unusual photographs. Food is good and the price is appropriate for the area. Home made everything! Definitely will be going back!

Thank Pam M
