The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
New in 2012, King Tut’s offers a casual place to get a tasty meal without having to worry about the kids getting bored. Quality hot dogs can be enjoyed while the young ones --- or adults ---play some arcade games, pool, ping-pong, Wii games, air hockey or darts. You can even grab a hula-hoop and have a spin! The menu features locally-made preservative-and hormone-free Weeping Radish hot dogs, bratwurst and sausage. Natural casing wieners are available in pork or beef, and bratwurst is German-style or beer style. There are also Nathan’s all beef hot dogs and corn dogs on a stick, among other hot dog choices.
Fixings are provided at a stand-alone counter, where you can help yourself. Plus, the menu includes burgers, chicken tenders, French fries, potato skins, nachos, funnel cakes and giant soft pretzels. There is also homemade BBQ from Manteo, served on a bun or rolls. Domestic, import, microbrew beers are available, as well as fountain and bottled soda. There is plenty of room to come with a crowd and enjoy the open atmosphere and some fun while filling your stomach with tasty food. Adults can relax at one of the tables and chairs lining the walls, and the kids can get up and wander around without anyone getting annoyed.
