What a challenge it has been, traveling with food allergies beyond anyone’s imagination.
My son is allergic to so many things from ingredients to latex that traveling is very difficult especially when trying to find a meal.
Outside of packing food, the challenges of being a mom of a child with severe food allergies is unbelievable.
To those that say, “that’s your problem.”
While that might be true, it’s also an issue for a lot of people who travel, not just us.
Therefore with every intention of helping you find good food when you travel to Ocracoke, I am sharing what we learned.
Allergen Free Dining On Ocracoke Island does exist so no worries and you will even find great ice cream and coffee~
Allergen Free Dining On Ocracoke Island
You might find it interesting to know that more often than not, people dining in your arm’s length vicinity have severe food allergies.
Now when you are on an adventure, you don’t want the adventure being where to eat, which sucks up your day of travel and enjoyment.
We found Allergen Free Dining On Ocracoke Island.
While we were hardly on a desolate island, we were on an island off of the North Carolina Coast, called Ocracoke.
The chance I took to feed my son was pretty unrealistic, but I knew that someone there would be able to feed him.

This particular vendor sounded like BLACKBEARD himself, and when he repeated our order back to us, my kids were astounded to hear his voice!
Ocracoke was actually a favorite tromping ground for Blackbeard, did you know that?
My kids loved this stop for great allergen free dining!
He offered walking tacos for VEGETARIANS and those with food allergies.
Um… did he know this press girl was headed to the island or was it for real?
The menu offers up Hot dogs, walking tacos, and vegetarian walking tacos, as well as $1 water and drinks, I mean, how could you miss here right?
It’s cash-only, but that is not a big deal as the meals were Under $4 and kicking delicious.
I enjoyed a vegetarian walking taco, while my daughter had one with chicken.
My boys ate Hot Dogs and NO allergens: no latex, no honey, no seafood, no nuts.

Allergen Free Dining On Ocracoke Island: Simple Good Eats Await
There is truly nothing worse than traveling with a child that has food allergies and Ocracoke made it easy from Slushees to Food.
We managed to survive about 4 hours plus and eat while we were on the Island.
It was not only reasonable but delicious and quite creative.
Please remember, everyone is different as are their food intolerances and allergies, always ASK before ordering as what works for us, may not work for you.
The story is based on my son’s allergies and our finds for him.
A simple, yet fabulous menu with cool prices for hot summer is even better right?
My personal thanks to the man that sounded like Blackbeard but served up allergen-free dining on Ocracoke Island!
Lavishly live a trip to Ocracoke Island out loud and enjoy allergen-free dining with this great side road restaurant. ~Dana XO
