Went there with some friends for late lunch/ early dinner and the fish and chips, fish taco and the salad were great, service friendly and fast (only bad point they could not really spit the bill). They were just preparing for a band to come in - sorry we missed the music.

It's not often one can refer to gas station food as a must eat, but this place is the exception. The price is more then we expected to pay but you get what you pay for. The quality and taste were exceptional. Add the craft brews on tap, many of them local, this place is a must stop. The crab... More

Pretty good food. Very nice and surprising especially since it is next to a gas station. The Brie L T looked off the charts. Will definitely try again.

We stop at this spot every time just for the crab cakes. They are my wife's favorite. I love it that you can get them in the drive thru which is always a plus.

To me this is a do not miss restaurant! The crab cakes (which have been featured on, "diners, Drive Inns, and Dives") are out-of-this-world good! (the best I've ever had!). If burgers are your thing they do a super burger made of ground steak. Do not be put-off by the location (attached to the Duck, NC BP gas station). We... More

On a recent stay our hotel recommended this. They told us not to be put off by the location which is connected to a gas station. The good and service were so good we ended up eating here several times. Have the scallops for sure!!

Stopped in for lunch on the weekend before Thanksgiving. Very prompt service and friendly staff. Had excellent Carolina BBQ sandwiches! (You have to appreciate the difference between the Carolina and other BBQ.) Reasonable prices topped it off. A place to 'go back to' for lunch.

Thank brasidas6
