I am looking into the possibility of vacationing in Corolla, NC this summer. Anyone have any experiences there (good or bad?) Any restaurant reccomendations (to eat at or to avoid?)

Thanks.

Scroll down...I put in a post about Duck, NC and got a few responses on recommendations and as I understand it, Duck and Corrolla are very close to each other.

Hi,
I can tell you a bit about two places in Kill Devil Hills. If you are coming in from hwy 64 (Manteo), you will need to go through KDH to get to Corolla, so this post might be of interest.
First of all, Stack 'em High Pancake House in Kill Devil Hills absolutely rocks. (It's a big pink building with green trim on the
left if you are traveling north away from Jockey's Ridge, toward Corolla.) We ate there last year and they were so great we went back. They have a sign up asking you to inform them of any food allergies. I can't
speak for what they do if you are allergic to eggs (or anything else), but if it's the peanuts that you're worried about, they cook
the pancakes on the egg griddle. (They do use some peanut butter chips in some of their pancakes.) When they bring the stuff to your table, you can double check to see if it was indeed cooked on the other griddle.
American Pie, also in KDH on highway 12 (across from the Ramada), doesn't use peanut ingredients in their pizza. They do serve ice
cream which sometimes contains peanuts or other nuts, but that's in a different area. And it's really good pizza, too.
I did find a place that uses peanut oil -- Dirty Dick's. I hate to say it, but I was relieved to hear it. I didn't want to eat there (I'm really _not_ a prude, honest!!) and was actually relieved to have a legitimate reason not to go there.
Hope that helps. Enjoy that lighthouse!

We are traveling to the Outer Banks tomorrow. I emailed Dirty Dick's about peanut oil and received this response today:
"We have no peanut oil in any of our recipes or fry oil.......Hope to see you this weekend.

FYI....we've eaten there before with no problems. I got concerned when I saw this thread.
