While In Hatteras...

Visit: Risky Business Seafood in Avon, (they also have stores in Buxton and Hatteras). On one of our evening outings we decided to just buy some seafood and eat in at our rental house. We stopped in rather late at Risky Business and the guys were just great! Will Anderson and his buddy Tim set us up with a couple of pounds of shrimp and the last of their blue crabs. They seasoned and steamed everything for us, even going so far as to chill the shrimp before we left. We got everything for a great price and the taste was phenomenal! The guys went out of their way and delivered a good deal for us. We'll be going back to do business with them again! Customer service like this cannot be beat!

Avoid: Bubba's BBQ, Too in Avon (and, if everything holds true then avoid the other location in Frisco). While their advertising says they deliver the best BBQ on Hatteras I will say that there can be no truth in that. The Food Lion carries canned 'Que that has to be better. Bubba's, without a doubt has the worlds WORST Barbecue. Ever! I had heard people say that Bubba's was bad but those folks were dead wrong. This stuff is VILE, NASTY, DISGUSTING and should never be fed to people. I am certain that feeding it to people in prison would be a violation of a number of human rights laws. The fact that they sell their "sauce" in plastic quart oil containers should have been a hint. Mobile One would taste better than the slop that came out of that bottle. Yuck! Avoid this place like the plague!

During my trip to the OBX I found nowhere that served "good" or even passable 'Que. It may well be possible that there is no good BBQ in North Carolina. I will continue to look for some, tho!
