We stopped for lunch and with a long line we were sure the food must be wonderful. The hot dogs are boiled, so if you like them cooked this way, you might love the food, we are not fans of boiled hot dogs. The fries were really good and the staff is friendly and very hospitable, and the food comes out quickly. The parking lot is very small and spaces are tight.

We stop by Capt'n Franks as we come into Outer Banks each year. Dogs can join in outside, which is great while we are waiting to get into our rental. Good hotdogs. Great onion rings! Fast - efficient - busy busy busy

Stopped for lunch around 1:30... very busy but the line moves quick. Had the Chicago and the Junkyard dogs. Both were fabulous. Bro in law had the chili cheese fries and was very pleased. Highly recommend, just don't look at the back wall if you're a Democrat. Apparently the owner is a huge Trump fan

When I travel to a place like the Outer Banks, ambiance is just as important to me as the food. Capt'n Franks had a great selection, good food and really was the perfect lunch spot. We ordered at the counter and then the staff brings your food out to wherever you choose to sit. My husband and I ate outdoors on the second floor so we could watch the happenings around us. We got a few different things ( The foot long, hush puppies, Philly Cheese Steak, fries) and they were all delicious! Definitely worth going to if you like a casual, relaxed eatery.
