Had nine people in our party for a quick lunch, everything was good. They did a great job on the nachos. The service was very good, nothing was missed.

Stopped here on our way to Hatteras. Delicious food and great service. Tacos were amazing. I think you have to pay for refills on chips and salsa, so that's the only downside.
