The sweet heart who works here serves you you're sweets with a smile! Crazy combinations, like brownie extreme with fruity pebbles! Quick service too!

Winks had some great pinball games that didn't cost much to play. They also had plenty of trinkets and apparel for the beach. They were an Outer Banks icon, and now they're permanently closed.

Met a family on the beach who vacation here every year. 90% of their meal comes from Wink's deli. So we tried it. We're hooked. Fresh, large, and cheaper then the restaurants in the area. We had meal there every day since we found out.

Very friendly, kitschy beach shop. Obviously family run, has a good mix of grocery and sundry items. Had the world's best 16-layer cake. Actually came to the area to eat at Arts, but went next door due to the line. So glad we went in for snacks! Ate a 2.99 grilled cheese while playing Star Trek pinball, and had a great time.

Quicker stop for convenience store items, friendly, clean, decent prices. Looking for quick shopping items instead of grocery store or 7/11 items.

Winks is an outer banks classic before the box stores flooded in there. No pomp or snobs. Still has postcards from 70s. Cold beer & the one & only winks T-shirts. Austins, Carawan, Tana-Rama, Ben Franklin, a Mako 17 footer, & Winks was all u needed when I was a boy.

Great store. Awesome food at their deli. We stop in everytime we are visiting the OBX.
