What a great spot! We got a Tropical Taco, Cheesy Pork Taco and Grilled Scallop Tostada with a side of black beans. It was all delicious, fresh and the scallops were tasty. Well be back for sure!

Absolutely best food on the Island maybe even as far as to say the Outer Banks as a whole. Fast and speedy service Top Notch Flavors. A must see and eat place in Ocracoke.

Some of the best tacos I've ever had. Great prices, great weather, great times. Enjoyable. Would drive hours to get these. Love them. Wish they were closer to home.

Looks like a food truck/trailer, side of the highway, might be scary to some but food is great & low cost. All items prepared while you wait. Accessible by foot from most hotels/accomodations (as most of the village/island is).

When I arrived on Ocracoke, I pulled up the tripadvisor app and found information on Eduardo's Taco stand. I was so glad to see that the stand was still open in the off-season. I ordered the fried spinach burrito and it was the best thing that I have eaten in weeks. A day later, I am plotting on how to... More

Stopped by for supper today and was amazed at the variety of items in the menu. We ordered a scallop and bacon quesadilla, cheesy chicken tacos and a beef burrito. Excellent and timely prep. Will be back for sure.

To be fair I'll start by saying that I was in Mexico 2 months ago so any Mexican food outside of Mexico will have a hard time with me. However, the customer service at this place really didn't help. I ordered my food from someone who appeared to me to be stoned. After ordering my food and after taking my... More

Was looking for a breakfast restaurant on Ocracoke while waiting for my ferry. A local fellow directed me to this food truck with an adjacent shaded picnic area. I chose a featured loaded breakfast taco with everything included but the kitchen sink, called, "The Mess" Edward seems to be very serious about creating authentic Mexican food and I was not...
