“Tasty sauces, very convenient, reasonable prices”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Reasonable prices, quick service, good salsa. Note that the tacos are small, so you will definitely need two or more, even if you have a small appetite. The bean dip with the tostones was really good, tangy and flavorful; tostones themselves tasty and crispy. Shrimp quesadilla was very good as well. Guacamole excellent. Fish taco same. Beans and rice were dry so make sure you do get some salsa to go with them.

“Tacos and mexican that is cooked to order.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Make sure you try the fish tacos, this place is cool and easy to get to. The owner/chef is there to make it happen. Have a beer and sit around with friends. Not a large place and basic, but good food and it has the topping/salsa bar. Nice!

“Not as good as the reviews!”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Just returned from vacation on the Outerbanks.
While there, I read the glowing reviews on the Outer Banks Taco Bar since I love really fresh Mexican food I thought I would give it a try.
My first impressions where not good, the place was very dark and had only one customer, but I was there and hungry so I ordered.
The taco's arrived very quickly. The fix in’s bar was limited, no sour cream, no guacamole, onions and lettuce looked wilted.
.
The handmade tortillas would have been good if the oil they fried them had not been rancid, although the filling was very good. Rice and beans were nothing special.

This could be a very good place to dine if they clean up their act and brighten up the place , always use fresh oil and add more fresh ingredient’s on the fix in’s bar.
