Home Blog Small Course Crawl: Buxton Village


RECAP: If you didn’t start at the beginning of this blog series, then here is what’s up. We’re just a couple of self-proclaimed “foodies” eating our way through the villages of Hatteras Island. One of us cooks (the one who is not me), and I don’t mean he finds a Pinterest recipe and throws some stuff in a crockpot. I mean he’s a real cook that makes fancy things that I sometimes can’t pronounce. I, on the other hand, can’t cook…like at all, so I am forced to eat out on the regular and will likely be told that I have high blood pressure any day now. It’s okay, I’m living my best life (please do not tell my mom I said that).

Moving on. We gorged ourselves in Hatteras Village and went through half a bottle of antacids in Frisco. Now we’re in Buxton, the hub of Hatteras Island, jam-packed with some delicious eats. It’s going to be hard (impossible) to complete this leg of the “Small Course Crawl” in one day, so you may need two.
