Southern hospitality

Enjoyed our stay at BJ's. Plenty of space so we could unhook and hook our car up easily. Very level. The breeze was wonderful and the cafe right there was a bonus.

Kind people & yummy food!

The burgers were delicious as were the chocolate lava cake & peanut butter cheesecake!! Great flat location to park. We didn't get to meet W but had a great, friendly chat with BJ & we look forward to another visit! Thanks again!

Southern Hospitality at its best

The perfect location just outside the Outer Banks. Nice level parking area. Good green places for walking your pets. The best part is the home cooking BBQ. Some of the best I've had and I've had a lot. Oster super-friendly exercising the best and Hospitality sharing what they have. You can't go wrong stopping here.

genuine southern hospitality

If you have heard of southern hospitality but wondered what it was all about, stop by and visit this lovely couple. Our parking area was level, firm and clean. We were greeted warmly by W. even though we arrived 4 hours late due to a blow out and bad traffic. We thouroughly enjoyed their Carolina style barbeque and even got to sample some fresh figs. I would compare the barbeque we had to the best in downtown Kansas City but at a reasonable price. We also loved the easy access to the beach without the touristy feel. Many thanks to this fine couple for making our experience a joyful pleasant one.

Sweet little restaurant

Me and my boyfriend stayed the night last night and were having breakfast at the restaurant this morning. What a cute restaurant and the friendliest staff. They have beer on tap and a great menu. Not far from the beach and a wonderful experience.

Great stay at BJ’s Carolina Cafe!

We had a great stay at BJ's Carolina Cafe. In addition to a fine place to stay, we received a great meal in the restaurant. There was plenty of flat space to park our two camper vans. Wanda, our host was very friendly and welcoming. We look forward to visiting here again!

Pleasant stay

We enjoyed being able to stay here before reaching our final destination. Easy access and even had a Saturday night movie viewing in the parking lot. Thank you and hope to stop by again in the future.

Perfect in every way

The stay was great! We left a little early (got behind on travel timeline) but our hostess was SO hospitable. Lot was level, clean and easy access. The cafe was perfect and I must say quite popular for a Sunday PM crowd!! Her staff Elias friendly and helpful too.

All in all I’d give her a 10/10!!!

Good location and great food

The parking lot is huge and easy to turn around in. The location is convenient. The beaches are about 10 minute drive away and Kitty Hawk museum is about 20 minute drive.

You can get propane at Metro Rental about a block from the Kitty Hawk Wright brothers museum.

The family ate at Wanda’s restaurant and the food was really good, the staff was all awesome and friendly. I loved the lemon meringue pie :)

Great stop over point to explore the Outer Banks.

Nice big flat gravel parking area. A bit noisy near the road but it quietens down during the evening and it didn’t bother us at all. Restaurant food was great and the staff were excellent.

The host was away so we’ll meet her next time around.

Great People - Great Food

Owner was such a pleasure to meet. Very welcoming and accommodating. She gave us great info on the area and has pride in her amazing community. As a bonus, the grilled wings inside the family restaurant are to die for! Nice flat gravel lot with easy asses for our 40 ft motorhome and tow behind. Great location to everything! Would recommend.

Great stop

As others have mentioned it’s a level lot off a fairly busy road that quiets down at night. Had a great meal at Bj’s for dinner. Definitely consider if you need a stop in the OBX region.

Great spot to explore the Outer Banks!

We really appreciated Wanda's hospitality and allowing us to stay at BJs. While we never had a chance to meet our host as she is very busy with catering right now, she was quick to reply and let us know details. The spot was in a gravel lot and a great spot to stay convenient to the Outer Banks! Thank you!!

Thank you !!!

Thank you for your hospitality even if we have finally decided to do more mileage instead of staying one night at your location.

We have greatly appreciated your fast reply.

Great OBX location and great food!

We were thrilled to be able to visit the Outer Banks - and this location was only about a half hour to visit the Wright Brothers Monument/Park and then we drove an hour and a half more down to Hatteras to see the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum. Close to tons of tourist-y stuff!

We stayed 2 nights and ate a dinner and breakfast at BJ's Carolina Cafe - both meals were great!

The parking lot was large - easy to pull in and park.

Thanks so much!!

Couldn't have been better

Such an easy in and out, plenty of room. Close to everything on the Outer Banks. Did not get to meet Wanda on Sunday but had a delicious breakfast. Her emplyees are amazing especially T, who gave us a great tip on where to buy local seafood. My sister and her husband also stayed there and we left happy and full😊Thanks so much for the hospitality.

Pleasant and convenient

Our host was warm and welcoming. We loved the location — perfect for exploring the outer banks then returning to enjoy supper at her restaurant with all of the locals. Thank you! We’re grateful for your hospitality and generosity.

Wonderful hosts! Thank you so much

The restaurant was closed when we arrived but our host and hostess met us when we arrived. Very kind and welcoming. Had a line of thunderstorms come through but was parked in their spacious lot facing west into the wind and all was fine (we also were positioned to use their house & trees next to the parking lot as a windbreak to the south). Really enjoyed chatting with hosts when we arrived; rest of time we had to work and they let us get on with what we had to do, though we did see them after the storm making sure guests were ok.
Re traffic - for us this was a welcoming place and we didn’t care about cars going by. Road has traffic noise but did not bother us at all; was like a background noise, no honking horns or trains or other sounds that we do find annoying, just cars going by and sound blends into a quiet white noise. Hope we can come back some time when restaurant is open - and hosts are nice people we would be glad to see again.

Great place to stay and eat.

What an awesome host. Nice flat spot to stay with a great place to eat. It was a bit noisy being right off a main road but we still slept well. Once again our host was fantastic. We will stop by again someday. The wings were some of the best I have ever had. If you do t stay at least stop and eat.

Perfect stay

We spent a wonderful weekend here. The [parking lot is large and open, lots of space to walk the dog away from people and a nice sunset view. We managed to arrive and get settled in time to visit the café for a great seafood and prime rib dinner. The restaurant was quite busy, but Wanda made time to come say Hi and chat for a few minutes.
Weather was perfect, sunny and good temps; we spent a day wandering down to Hatteras lighthouse and back up checking out the beaches on the way. What a beautiful part of the world you live in! Thank you for sharing this with us!

Great Place, Great People

We had a really great time at BJ's. Very easy to get to, large parking area that we had all to ourselves. Our Hosts were very welcoming. One of our Hosts greeted us upon our arrival. Both Hosts are extremely busy with their business, but they still made time to return a phone call and to check in if we needed anything. We would certainly return to this Boondocker location!

Outer Banks

Was easy to find off of 4 lane road. Had dinner at the nice quaint restaurant. Very friendly staff. Didn't get to meet host but met her husband and we chatted a bit. Very nice gentleman. The spot was large with plenty of room to maneuver. Was in the open so was able to set up satellite. Another rig had pulled into the area and spent a couple of nights too. We ended up extending our stay to 3 nights. If you want to see the outer banks this is the spot.

Great location

We didn’t manage to meet Wanda but all communication was very easy. The location was great for our planned trip to the Outer Banks. Dinner was excellent and when we couldn’t‘t find another location Wanda allowed us to stay another night. Recommended
