"Southern" food in OBX?

Last year when we were in Charleston, SC we really enjoyed what I would call "Southern" food from places like Boulevard Diner, Momma Browns, and Gullah Cuisine. We are headed to the OBX in a few days and I was wondering if there are any places like this ("meat and three", etc) there. Thanks in advance.

  1. I've been going to the OBX for almost 40 years and cannot say I've ever seen what you just described. Lots of good seafood, though.

    1. You were in Mt Pleasant! I I live here now, but am very familiar with the Banks. Instead of meat n 3 try Kill Devil Grill or Rundown Cafe. Different, but great nonetheless. Have fun.

      1. re: Sue in Mt P

        Darrylls in Manteo has good Home Cookin ! Meatloaf with Tomato Gravy ,Fried Chicken,Hamburger Steak,ECT, ECT.

      2. The Outer Banks is sorely in need of a "meat & 3" style restaurant & I know it would do VERY well. However, the aforementioned Darryl's in Manteo is about as close as you can get. I can also recommend Basnight's Lone Cedar--they have a lot of their own "homegrown" and locally produced items. It's not a meat & 3, per se, but it can be rather tasty. Enjoy your visit!

        1. Its not a meat 'n three, but Blue Point in Duck has lowcountry and southern-style dishes such as she crab soup, fried catfish, and grilled local pork chops with mac 'n cheese and tomatoes and vidalia onions.
