Country Deli Restaurant in Nags Head, NC

Sandwich from County Deli Restaurant in Nags Head, NC

Family owned and operated on the Outer Banks since 1990! Country Deli is known for their over-stuffed sandwiches, and is run by a super friendly and appreciative husband and wife team. This small but mighty locally-owned business prepares some of the most delicious sandwiches you can find anywhere on the Outer Banks.

Located in Surfside Plaza, a shopping complex which is situated at about milepost 13 between the two main roads in Nags Head. Country Deli is located next to Blue Moon Beach Grill, which is another great locally-owned restaurant that receives high praise from most every area local. (But that’s another post…)

The staff at Country Deli is super friendly and the sandwiches are almost too good to share. Portions are huge, and you may not be able to finish your entire sandwich… unless you’re really hungry! Each order is made fresh, and all of the sandwiches very are reasonably priced.

There are so many different sandwiches to choose from, it’s almost a guarantee that you’ll find something that sounds delicious off their expansive menu.

In addition to sandwiches, you can also grab a bag of chips and a drink. The cooler is filled with cold beverages that pair great with a sandwich, like a Coca-Cola, SoBe, and Arnold Palmer, an addicting drink that consists of iced tea and lemonade. In addition to modern favorites, you can also find beverage classics like Stewart’s Orange n’ Cream and Stewart’s Root Beer.

Please note, Country Deli is takeout only!

You can either order at the register, or call ahead and have your order waiting for you when you arrive. They do offer free delivery in case you don’t feel like driving to the restaurant. Remember to tip your driver! 

On most days, Country Deli is open from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., so you can grab a sandwich for lunch or for dinner if you’re able to show up before they close. On Sundays, they’re typically only open from noon until 4:00 p.m.

Hours will vary greatly if you dine in the late fall, winter, or early spring, as those are the times of year when there is the least amount of people on the Outer Banks, and most local businesses scale back their hours of operation.

If you are craving a well-made sandwich that’s overflowing with toppings, and you’re in the area, consider checking out Country Deli… The food and the service never disappoints!
