My family and I ate lunch here. It is one of those places that you might not stop for without the aid of some online reviews. From the outside, it isn't much to look at. Inside, the place is charming and fun. Service is friendly and gracious. The food was perfectly prepared and delicious. The interior isn't very big; seating... More

We LOVED our two dining experiences so far at Food Dudes. Creative, colorful, flavorful and fun. Beyond average, well beyond We highly recommend this restaurant. Their house specialty salsa is worth taking home, you will find it addictive. It is located in a strip mall in Kill Devil Hills beach road, but don't let the size intimidate you, this place... More

On a quiet weekday, we had a lovely meal. Vegetable quesadillas were tasty, filled with cheese, roasted peppers, mushrooms, zucchini and corn, served over black beans and yellow rice. Pulled pork tacos were enjoyable, too.

I make a point to never miss Food Dudes when I visit Nags Head. Food is fresh, good and very reasonably priced. I had the fish tocos and they were excellent. Others in my party had prime rib and was very goo and meatloaf wich was very tastey.

What a great place to eat! Took a group of 8 and we all had different items off the menu and everyone was pleased and filled! The service was extraordinary and I know my group will be going back. NB: it is a smaller place so come early or be patient, but it would be worth the wait!

Awesome food. Great service. Even thoughv we were only in OBX for a few days we came back here twice as the food was so good. That had a tomatoe basil clam bisque as a soup of the day which was hearty and delighted my taste buds! The interior is cosily rustic with local art on display. A good selection... More

We are here tonight based on Yelp and Tripadvisor reviews. This place did not disappoint! First, we are from the Jersey Shore so we totally appreciated the ambiance of this place- like being in our shore town! The waitress was super friendly, the beer was great, and our food was so good! I had the special crab cake salad with... More

Eight of us went for dinner and were happy with the food, service and value. The seafood choices were great but other options are available as well and more than satisfactory.
