It seems like finding those small "mom and pop" delis and lunch spots are hard to find while out on vacation. So what exactly makes our deli so wonderful? Yes, a deli is a place where food is typically sold at a delicatessen, like cold cuts, salads, and pickles, but there is nothing typical about our recipes. Each deli sandwich is made with so much love, that it can’t be. Making a sandwich with love for us at BIB means that we care about the ingredients inside as much as preparing a sandwich that is carefully put together for each customer request. As our Beth says, “I put some love on it” and that’s what makes us different.
To us love means homemade. We keep it simple but fun! Each recipe was created with our own twist on the classics that everyone loves, as well as some new classics to fall for. One of our favorite takes on a classic is our "Barrier Island" Chicken Salad signature sandwich, while we love “The Barrier Island Biggie” named after my brother. "The Biggie", for short, features hot Ovengold Turkey, Brie, Apricot Jam and Bacon served on your choice of freshly baked white, wheat, or rye bread. It has always been his favorite concoction!
Our sandwiches are only made with the best deli products. Each recipe is made with Boars Head quality meats that are sliced to order every day. We never pre-slice to ensure that you enjoy a fresh and delicious sandwich. We are happy to have a variety of choices for our Outer Banks community and visitors including homemade chicken and tuna salad, rotisserie chicken, spicy turkey, smoked turkey, ham, black forest ham, cappy ham, pepperoni, salami, pastrami, roast beef, corned beef and bacon! Many of our signature OBX lunches are given that something extra with homemade house dressings such as honey mustard, ranch, and vinaigrette. And don't forget that crunchy, mouth watering pickle wedge!
As you read the deli board, see how familiar you are with our local landmarks as each of our delicious lunch options are named with some of the Outer Banks beacons close to our heart. We strive to be one of the best Outer Banks restaurants that gives every person something they can savor and enjoy! Whether it’s lunch or breakfast in the OBX, we have something for everyone. We invite you to come enjoy a signature deli creation for lunch or a sweet or savory bagel for breakfast.
