GOOD MORNING FROM BUXTON! - Posted By: jessicaboyd on 9/15/2019
My car is still in Mount Airy, but I rented a car and drove back home yesterday. Went to Pop’s last night for dinner and drinks. I hadn’t eaten since the hotel breakfast, so I was starving and craving tuna bites. Fun night, and this was waiting for me this morning. I was off the island for 10 days, and missed this terribly. So good to be back!

DUNE BURGER - last year was a disappointment
We have always loved DB, but in 2018 we tried to go to Dune Burger. When we went, after we ordered informed us that they were out of beef patties, which seems really odd since that is the key thing that they sell. Then it was an ordeal getting our card credited.

GIDGETS PIZZA AND PASTA - Margherita Pizza
we ordered Gidgets for delivery. I wanted the Margherita Pizza which is hard to find on a menu and I ate the whole thing!! The rest of my family ordered the cheese pizza. The slices are big. And the delivery time was reasonable for a weekend

HOWARD'S PUB - Good Lunch on our Island Day Trip
We stopped in for lunch on a dreary and drizzly day. Not a lot of people were coming down from HI, so most of the island was pretty empty. We had a good meal. Portion sizes were reasonable. Nothing that really stood out as a pro or con - just seemed to be a good solid meal. They lost a star because of price. It's not a cheap lunch, that's for sure. But we did not leave with any disappointme... [Read Full Review]

THE FOOD DUDES KITCHEN - Great Food - Can Get Packed!
The food is top notch. Really good, but they lost a star simply because of price. It is not a cheap lunch at all. But you'll leave satisfied and full. The shop is really small, and they can get very busy. I recommend eating here at an off-time... like lunch at 2:30 or something.

JOHN'S DRIVE-IN - The Best!
Loved John's. The dolfin boat is so very good! Would be really good with a beer, but a vanilla shake is almost just as good! The whole family liked their food, and I was the only one that got the dolfin. Can't wait to go back and try something else. Or... maybe have another dolfin boat!
