Tips from locals
Best Margaritas and Bloody Marys on the OBX. The Ultimate Margarita is worth a splurge, and the Bloody Mary mix is made from scratch. The food is also outstanding. They are "Best of the OBX" for a reason, and are a locals' favorite.
This is an unusual Mexican restaurant that is a major local favorite. Of course they have amazing Tacos and Margaritas, but their cuisine is a lot more adventurous and higher quality than your typical Mexican restaurant. This place is a big favorite among the locals.
We've never had a bad meal here and always leave wondering how they make everything taste so good. It's a great lunch spot.
Margarita daily special, vegan bowl option, overstuffed burritos and garlic fries...salsa...YES!

“Art's Place is just a mile north of Beach Haven! Walk, bike or drive down our lazy back street to reach my fav local breakfast spot, or grab a burger for lunch or late night! No matter what you decide to get for breakfast, grab a 1/2 order of French Toast to try (it's not on the menu-the 1/2 order, but it's just the right amount to taste!)”

“Great food, hard to get a table. A local favorite. Fun place, loud. I’ve never had a bad meal. My husband and I like to sit at the bar to eat lunch/dinner and talk to other people. They always win food tastings contest on the beach. ”
