Outer Banks Restaurant in Kill Devil Hills

Chilli Peppers Coastal Grill & Bar in Kill Devil Hills isn’t Jim Douglas’ first successful venture, nor is it his most iconic. Nonetheless, it’s one of the best known and loved restaurants on the Outer Banks. If you aren’t yet acquainted with Douglas’ other brainchildren, those claims may appear to be contradictory — but they’re sound! You see, in addition to his entrepreneurial involvement in a batch of other local restaurants, and his real estate accomplishments, Jim Douglas created the (literally) world-famous ‘OBX’ acronym. Short of the Wright Brothers, there may never be a more recognized brand born on this island. All this considered, Chilli Peppers is one in a collection of highly-touted projects for which Jim’s par is excellence.

Its name might seem indicate a Southwestern or even Mexican focus, but the food at Chilli Peppers knows no geographical bounds. The menu has undergone habitual innovations since the restaurant’s inception in 1993 — any given iteration is sure to include a variety of dishes from the far-reaching corners of the world. Many of those dishes are prepared with ingredients fresh from the restaurant’s courtyard garden.

Inside discover a multi-faceted atmosphere, with a cozy, family-friendly dining room on one end and a sports bar on the other.
