Saltbox Seafood Joint
Saltbox is the kind of place you want to bring people to without telling them anything about it—just walk up to the unassuming roadside box, and watch as they freak out after one bite of lightly fried and incredibly fresh seafood. There is simply no better seafood in the region, and when presented on a humble roll, everything from North Carolina striped mullet to king mackerel shines. Enjoy the accompanying honey-drizzled hush puppies, along with the house tea and a lemon punch combo drink, and take it all to one of their picnic tables out front.
