Sam and Omie's a can't miss joint!

Sam and Omies little Fish Sandwich
My family and I live in Manteo on the OBX after vacationing here many times we bit the bullet and made the move. My pick for a must visit when you are here is Sam and Omie's in the Whalebone area before the bridge over to Roanoake Island.
A fixture on the OBX since the 30's this little restaurant offers some of the best biscuits and gravy on the planet, the friendliest waitstaff (all in skirts) and a great mix of locals and touristas. Where else can you get a breakfast for two consisting of a huge plate of B&G, eggs bacon and toast with unlimited coffee and coke for $13.00???
Their fish sandwiches are awesome ... hanging out of the bun like Wilt Chamberlain on a twin bed, served with great fries and pickles, not to mention the fish was swimming usually hours before (always a catch of the day, so the fish itself changes based on catch).
