Hatteras Restaurants: Subs, Sandwiches, Dogs & Burgers

Sit down with a classic Outer Banks creation, such as a sandwich made with fried dolphin or a crab cake, sink your teeth into a juicy burger or keep your lunchtime choice true to North Carolina’s roots with an eastern-style pulled pork barbecue sandwich. Whatever you’re craving, Hatteras restaurants’ hand-held choices cover almost every sandwich, sub, hot dog and burger craving that could ever strike. Many of these eateries prioritize convenience.

Additionally, plenty of the sit-down restaurants offer sandwiches, wraps and burgers in addition to a few seafood specialties, salads or steaks.
