We LOVE Eduardo's Taco Stand at Ocracoke!!!! This is authentic Mexican cuisine with plenty of options. We make this part of our yearly trip to the island. The burritos are HUGE and the burrito bowls are even bigger! Delicious guacamole is made fresh and tacos...are yummy, too. Be sure to stop and support this wonderful family business.More

I had eaten at Eduardos at the old location a couple years ago. I loved it then. Food was great and prices were reasonable. Boy has it changed!!! This time around the woman at the window was not friendly and appeared annoyed when I asked...for one each of the chicken, Asada, and carnita tacos in the 3 taco meal. (I had done this last time). She said they all had to be the same kind. This was fine with us, I got a chicken order, my daughter got a steak order, and I asked to add a single carnitas taco for $3+ (as it shows on menu.) She said ok. We ordered a cheese quesadilla and added chicken. We ordered Two beef burritos with the chorizo add on (*1.50) We ordered Five drinks. Total. $102 At a taco truck. Yikes. $20 per person? I was so busy trying to lift my jaw off the ground that i didn’t notice the woman signed my fiancé’s name herself when he ran the card and didn’t offer a receipt. Rushed us along to go to the next person. I sat in front of the menu and no matter how many times I re calculated it, I couldn’t figure how it cost more than about $70. I didn’t want to, but eventually had my fiancé ask for our receipt. I just couldn’t let it go. $100 was a lot. She very obviously didn’t want to give it, but once she texted it to him…. Wow. The burritos were both put in as chicken which were more expensive by $1-2 each, the chorizo upcharge was $2 each instead of $1.50, she charged the whole meal price for the one carnita taco, and an $8 upcharge to add chicken to the quesadilla. He confronted her on the overcharges and she got irritated and had him put his card in so they could give the money back. My son also tried to get the ‘side of fiesta Mexican cheese’ to add to the tacos for a dollar and she refused to give it to him. Telling him they don’t do that. Although it is clearly on the menu. Very disappointed because I was SO excited to go back. Definitely my last time.More

Best food on the Island! We ate here twice this week. Tacos are the best ever. I would recommend taking your own drink though as choices are limited and $3 for a can of soda.

food is excellent except for they don't clean the shrimp. They struggle to get the orders correct. Usually forget something or make it incorrect.

After readings so many raving reviews, we had to try Eduardo’s Taco Stand on Ocracoke Island. The stand is conveniently located just across the street from the road to the lighthouse. The outdoor seating is abundant and comfortable, complete with umbrellas. The only bad thing...about Eduardo’s is that there are so many yummy options it’s really hard to know what to pick. We were a group of eight, so we were able to try a variety of options and while everything was great, we definitely had our favorites. The top of our list was the Shrimp tacos with lettuce, pico de gallo, and avocados on a flour tortilla. – The spice blend on the shrimp was complete on point and the acidity of the topping balanced everything perfectly. Next on our list was the Cheesy Grilled Shrimp Mango Taco. If you’re wondering why, it’s cheesy, it’s because there are two corn tortillas with cheese in between that are toasted on a griddle before adding the taco ingredients. This taco was fantastic, but definitely on the richer side. You would not want more than two and if you had two you would be stuffed. My daughter had the chicken and cheese quesadilla… I know what you’re thinking, “it’s chicken and cheese, what’s the big deal?” Well, all I can say is that the flavor of the grilled chicken was exceptional, and it was the best quesadilla I’ve ever tasted. It even came with salsa and sour cream for dipping. What a great place for a great meal!More

As my husband put it, "It wasn't awful, but it wasn't great." We got the grilled chicken tacos and they were ok. Very dry. Chicken didn't have much flavor. The cheesy shrimp taco was really good. The burrito was good. Overall, it wasn't as good...as we were hoping for. Great outdoor dining options! Great customer service.More

Must visit when on the island. Scallops taco was definitely a unique offering. Shrimp tacos were also great and so was the tropical salsa.

Eduardo's recently relocated and the added space makes the mandatory stop way more approachable. I always try to visit more than once while visiting Ocracoke. As always and obviously, get the guacamole!

They are growing their own peppers next to the truck! We had the Cheesey Shrimp Mango taco. The shrimp was so fresh tasting, we weren't expecting big shrimp like that in a Taco. Nice little picnic tables to eat at. Great sauce with it. Highly...recommendMore
