When you’re in the mood for something different, Duck Deli offers a departure from the standard Outer Banks seafood menus. Barbecue is the specialty, and it’s cooked on site, so just follow your nose to the rich, smoky aromas. Duck Deli makes North Carolina-style pork barbecue and Kansas City-style beef and chicken barbecue with red sauce along with ribs, chicken and wings. The full range of traditional sides and salads is here, including baked beans and cole slaw. They also offer a good selection of sandwiches, soups and salads and have expanded the recipes to include a variety of seafood dishes, salads and daily specials as well as homemade desserts from old family recipes. Duck Deli serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily in season. Everything is available for take-out. They also serve hand-dipped ice cream sundaes, milkshakes and smoothies. Beer and wine are available and in the summer you can enjoy a variety of live music in the picnic garden. This spot has been a fixture in Duck for more than 20 years with the same owners.
