We eat here every single day of every single trip to OBX! Nicest owners and staff on the island. Ok about these shrimp tacos..they are the world's best shrimp tacos...huge portions, fresh, fun, and pure deliciousness! Wraps are great too...today we tried the shrimp corn chowder... .fantastic! Can't get enough of this place!

Fresh food, fresh made to order. Limited hours; sign on the door says 'we are Not fast food ' Each order is made fresh to order so you will wait but it will be worth it! You're probably on vacation so stop in, relax, and enjoy! And order the fish tacos, they Rock!

Love this place! It's not great on ambience, but the food was great! My husband enjoyed their Crab Patty Wrap. I ordered the fish tacos on the recommendation of our server.. OMG.....they were super!

While staying in Buxton on vacation, we asked 'Where's the best place for lunch?' We were told Buxton Munch is the place to go. It is the place to go! The wait was a little longer than expected but the food was delicious and worth the wait. There were four of us, we all ordered something different. Prices were reasonable.... More

My wife and I stopped here before visiting the light house. I had the homemade tuna and my wife had the shrimp tacos. Very generous portions and very tasteful. Service was very attentive. We would recommend this restaurant. I would skip the tortilla chips.

The one word description of this place could be eclectic. This is a very unassuming looking spot tucked away in a small shopping center.

It's a good thing the speed limit is 25mph driving along Hwy 12 in the part or else you may miss this wonderful place to eat. It's on the left headed south not far from the lighthouse.

Found this gem in a little shopping center on 12 on my way to Equine Adventures. Eclectic decor, perhaps a bit too eclectic, but a charming and welcoming staff.
