john’s drive-in = 40 years of obx tradition
For 40 years John’s Drive-in has been serving the best fried food ever!
This is food for the soul, not necessarily for the heart, but it’s always fresh, tasty and wonderful, as Jane Stancill writing for The News and Observer reports.
“Cruising down the beach road in Kitty Hawk, you’re likely to encounter a traffic jam around lunchtime near Milepost 5, where there’s a clamor for parking spaces in front of John’s Drive In.
Locals and tourists flock to the classic beach shack for homemade food at one of a dozen or so picnic tables a stone’s throw from the Atlantic Ocean. There, you can sit with your toes in the sand and enjoy John’s famous dolphin boat and a chocolate peanut butter milkshake. Or maybe the daily specials, which recently were grilled Cajun yellowfin tuna sandwiches, fried shrimp and grit cakes and “Super Duper Grouper.”
