In honor of Outer Banks Restaurant Week, Sun Realty has attempted to solve one of the many “good” dilemmas during your Outer Banks vacation: where to eat. Some of our own chimed in with their favorites:DeAnna in Duck: I love Goombays (in Kill Devil Hills)! It's a very relaxed atmosphere. They have a fantastic brunch on Sundays. My favorite is the banana french toast with applewood smoked bacon.

As a matter of fact, EVERYTHING about John's is retro 1960s.Located on the Beach Road (the "official" address being 3716 Virginia Dare Trail), John's Drive In is within walking distance of many Kitty Hawk vacation rentals. It's a beach shack with limited parking and some picnic tables. Fancy? No. Yummy? Yes!
