Top Dog Cafe has been a local icon serving great food for 23 years on Hatteras Island. They’re reputed to have some of the biggest and best burgers on the Outer Banks, the largest of which is the 2-pound Cyclone. The huge fish tacos are a legend of their own. Top Dog also offers innovative salads, wraps, appetizers, burgers, seafood, sandwiches and dinner entrees. Some of the favorite items are the Cajun crab wrap, Jamaican tuna wrap, bacon-wrapped scallops, Portobello and Swiss burger, Parrothead Salad and Paradise Pasta. The screened porch atmosphere is relaxed and rustic Keys-style casual — perfect for the whole family. Kids’ meals are available, and beer and wine are served. In summer Top Dog serves lunch and dinner every day but Tuesday, when they serve lunch only.
