Our State #5: Sam & Omie's – Nags Head

posted in: Uncategorized | 0
I couldn’t wait to start my first journey to the Outer Banks on Sunday for the rest of the Labor Day weekend. So, this restaurant was going to get marked off the list of the Top 100 in 100 Counties.
We asked some other locals in the places we stopped what they thought of S&0 and we got mixed reviews. They kept saying “Oh, that’s a OBX staple, good food, okay food, its been around a long time.” If it weren’t for the sake of marking it off my list, I may not have gone, but you do what you gotta do.
On a Sunday night this place was packed, so other people must really like it. We had what was told to us a 35 minute wait, which we enjoyed outside in the beautiful “sunset light”. Turned in to a 50 minute wait, good thing I had good company and we were practicing our vertical push ups on the rail and our pigeon poses. Finally we got seated.
We chose to split what we ordered.
Rach got the Sam & Omie’s burger: great flavor, cooked just the way we wanted, onions, tomato, lettuce. Came with fries. Definitely the winner of the two – best thing of the experience.
I ordered the fish of the day sandwich – which was flounder. The batter nor the fish had any flaovr. It was a long piece of fish served on a round hamburger bun (again, nothing special) – should have been served on a hoagie, at least toasted. Came with all the fixins – the tarter sauce was really yummy. We got the onion rings on that order – and Hot Dog World’s was better.
Our waitress was good but not overly friendly, I would describe her as matter of fact. It was freezing in there. But, we marked it off the list.
So, this won’t win the Best of the 100 Award.
