Hatteras Restaurants: Diners, Delis & Grills

Grab a generously stuffed deli sandwich, juicy burger or grilled fish tacos at the delis, bar-grills and other eateries that serve up handheld delights in Hatteras. These Hatteras restaurants keep it casual and delicious, and they welcome beachgoers and families who want a quick break from the beach or looking to pick up sandwiches to take on the go. Hatteras delis are located conveniently along N.C. Highway 12, making them quick stops during a trip up or down the beach. There are also burger joints with creative specialty patties, or try a North Carolina classic, a pulled-pork barbecue sandwich. These places are crowd pleasers for lunch and dinner, and a few serve breakfast too with biscuit sandwiches and hot coffee.
