Expand Horizons at Kill Devil Hills Restaurants

One thing that we love about Kill Devil Hills restaurants is how so many of them are locally owned and operated. It gives them the ability to capture the area’s influences in the food that they serve, whether that means using seasonal ingredients sourced from the region, offering tried and true Outer Banks dishes or embracing home-style country cuisine. A popular move for visitors is to branch out from the familiar chain restaurants they find at home and instead discover something new. (If you must have a fast food fix, however, Kill Devil Hills is home to what’s affectionately known as French Fry Alley by the locals. It’s the stretch of the Bypass between Mileposts 9 and 11 where several fast food chains are located.) We haven’t included them here because you’re already familiar with what they offer. Wherever you go in this town, you’ll find that casual attire is perfectly acceptable, even in fine dining establishments.
