Every vacation destination has its own unique draw to potential visitors, whether it's a national monument, a fantastic shopping or dining scene, or an exotic locale that's meant for total relaxation. Many newcomers to the Outer Banks are surprised to learn that this destination has all of these attributes and more, and it can be hard to narrow down the overflowing list of "must-sees" or "must-dos" that have to be squeezed into a 1-2 week OBX vacation.
Applebee’s features a variety of salads, seafood, ribs, wings, burgers and sandwiches that would please just about everyone’s tastebuds. A relatively recent anchor at the Outer Banks Mall, the eatery is one of about 2,000 in the chain that had its genesis in Atlanta 30 years ago. With eight big screen TVs, the restaurant and bar in Nag Head is a popular place to watch the big game ----or to enjoy a meal after a local game. Outer Banks diners will appreciate looking at photographs of local sports teams and players that line the walls. And for those who don’t want to go inside, if you call ahead the restaurant will bring your meal to your car. There are also Weightwatchers meals, a late-night appetizer menu and desserts available.
