Visitors to Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands will simultaneously be visiting the gorgeous Cape Hatteras National Seashore. One of the largest preserved parcels of the Outer Banks, the National Seashore stretches across 70 miles of shoreline, encompassing seven villages on Hatteras Island, and providing visitors with miles of undisturbed, scenic beaches as well as some of the prettiest natural drives on the East Coast.
Located at the Outer Banks Mall since 2004, Outback is an Australian-themed chain restaurant that offers enough choices to please everyone in the family, served in an attractive atmosphere. Vegetarians in the crowd can enjoy pasta and salad, and there’s a good choice of side veggies. The Bloomin’ Onion is a not-to-be missed appetizer. But it’s no surprise that cooked-to-order meat is this eatery’s specialty. Favorites include ribs, chicken, pork, lamb and --- of course ---steak, cooked in a variety of styles. There are also burgers and sandwiches, fish dinners and combination platters. For a treat, try Chocolate Thunder from Down Under, an original dessert, or one of several other sweets. Specialty cocktails like The Wallaby Darned, made with peaches , champagne, vodka and schnapps, are also available. And there’s a good selection of beers, including the Australian favorite, Foster’s.
