We live in Chicago and come to the OBX every year and Food Dudes is our favorite place by far. Excellent food, amazing service, and good location. Going at "off times" is recommended with it being a smaller restaurant. Mahi tacos, pork tacos, nachos, burgers, and their craft beers are fantastic to say the least. Thanks Food Dudes for kickin...

We haven't eaten here in about a year due to a bad meal our last visit. It's always been great in previous visits. Gave it another try and was not disappointed. Everyone loved their meal. We ate around 2:00 and the place was still cranking. Definitely back in the top three places for lunch. Great job in the kitchen!

An unexpected lunch outing took us to this little place with a big surprise . The food we had was delicious and well worth a stop for lunch. While I think their food was excellent, the restaurant has a lunch type feel to it and would not be my choice for dinner. But lunch or dinner, it was delicious and... More

Food was great, bar stools very uncomfortable. Good, not great, experience. Too many great places on the OBX to go back.

My boyfriend and I ducked in here for lunch one day after it started pouring down rain outside. This is a small little place, without much seating, but there was a table open so we were seated right away. We both thought the food was very good. I had the black bean veggie burger and he had the bacon cheeseburger.... More

While we waited almost an hour to eat, it was worth it! You can sit outside and have a drink, which most people do. It's a small place so a wait is expected. We went on taco night. (Thursday) Oh my goodness!!! My husband started with 3 beef soft tacos only $1 each. I had tacos for a main dish:... More

This place was suggested to us but to be honest, the food was average as were the prices. It was close to our condo but not sure I would go back. Fair not great

What a gem! My group was so happy we found this place after a round of golf. We each had something different (I had the salmon wrap) and we were all extremely satisfied.
