Darrell's 2 BBQ & Seafood
Ranked #29 of 91 Restaurants in Nags Head
Certificate of Excellence

Description: Darrell's 2, the little brother of the Manteo's iconic Darrell's, is now open for business at the Outer Banks Mall in Nags Head.

My friends and family have visited this restaurant on several occasions, partly because of the food and service, and partly because of it's perfect location from Shallowbag Bay Club.

Breakfasts are my favorite meal of the day and this place never disappoints. I've also ordered their BBQ and fried chicken, and again, each was excellent.

The Seafood is fresh and the BBQ is the real deal. Very southern tasting with a light, tangy sauce on fresh pulled pork. I would highly recommend this

We are regular customers of Darrell's 2. Love the local seafood. The ribs are outstanding & oh man, the chicken tenders are always perfect! Always nice to walk in and be greeted by their friendly staff. I can always count on D2 when I need an event to be catered. Excellent food & service all around!

We were driving by the Mall and saw the catering trailer and decided to stop. The restaurant was clean and the background music enhanced the atmosphere.
The food was really good but the fried chicken and rib appetizer were out of this world!
Stephanie offered great service and very attentive even though they were busy we were not neglected.
We even returned for dinner after a good experience during lunch. We still received the same great service from Su. This time I had the crab cakes which were delicious and the dinner portions were good. The 7 layer chocolate cake OMG!!! Over all they offered great food and portions at reasonable prices. The only thing i didn't like was the limited deserts. wish they would offer more.

We ended up here when the place we were going to was closed. Definitely our blessings. Good food, good service and excellent staff. The ribs were very good, the clams brought back memories of New England. Highly recommend.
