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 its 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.

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

The staff at Country Deli is super friendly, and the sandwiches are almost too good to share. Portions are enormous, and you may be unable to finish your entire sandwich - unless you’re starving! However, each order is made fresh, and the sandwiches 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.

Our Favorite Sandwiches at Country Deli:

I Wouldn’t Brisket
(Pastrami, Corned Beef, Monterrey Jack and Mustard on Rye Bread)

Bermuda Schwartz
(Roast Beef, Turkey, Swiss, Provolone, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Mayo and Mustard on Jewish Rye)

Turkey Reuben
(Turkey, Sauerkraut, Thousand Island Dressing and Swiss Cheese on Rye Bread)

Wright Brothers Trio
(Roast Beef, Turkey, Honey Ham, Bacon, American Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Mayo and Mustard on a Sub Roll)

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 Coca-Cola, SoBe, and Arnold Palmer, an addicting drink that consists of iced tea and lemonade. In addition to modern favorites, you can 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 offer free delivery if 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 dinner if you can show up before they close. On Sundays, they’re typically only open from noon until 4:00 p.m.

Hours will vary significantly if you dine in the late fall, winter, or early spring, as those are the times of the 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 overflowing with toppings and are in the area, consider checking out Country Deli. The food and the service never disappoint!
