“Yummy and Fun”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We arrived right as lunch was starting so we (party of 10) were seated quickly. The place is small, but ecelictic, vibrant, and clean. The menu had a nice variety of non-typical fare and was cooked to order. The kids menu (again) was cookie cutter, but the popcorn shrimp was so fresh I found myself snacking off of my kid's plate. The wait staff was quick and friendly.

The only opportunity I found here was with the restroom. It was clean, but in need of an update. The inside of the restaurant is so hip and colorful. It would be cool to see the same in the restrooms.

“My fav restaurant in the world, FISH TACO!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Read another review that said dirty n bugs and I go there all the time and never seen bugs and its really clean, they have a awesome sanitation grade. I've never ate anything from there that wasn't good. Serice can be slow in season but thats EVERYWHERE at the beach in the summer. Excellent fish tocos, best ive EVER ate and ive ate them at many places.

“Love it here”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Went here our first night in OBX. It was a short wait for excellent food. We had fish tacos, shrimp and tuna, all of which were wonderful. The service was good and everyone had a good time. I'd definitely go back.

“Worth the wait”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We tried to eat here on Saturday night, but there was an hour wait. Came back the next night and it was only 30 minutes. So worth it. (It is a small restaurant which is why the wait is long). Everything on the menu sounded awesome. Delicious onion rings and homemade veggie burger. Quick service.
