About the Owners
Duck Deli is a small family style restaurant featuring BBQ and much, much more.
It was established in 1987 by a retired dentist and entrepreneur, Ron Forlano Sr. and his son, Ken from Pennsylvania.
After spending summers vacationing on the Outer Banks, dreams began to form of living here and running a small family business on the beach.
Family gatherings and great food always brought our family together and what goes better with the summer and the beach but BBQ.
After several years on the road, as a musician, Ron Jr. moved to Duck to help run the family business.
Duck Deli is now a third-generation family restaurant with several of Ken’s and Ron Jr.’s children working.
We started out with BBQ Smoked daily in-house; pork, chicken, tuna and other fish. We brought with us our special subs and cheesesteaks, salads and special sandwiches. We have expanded the recipes to include a variety of seafood dishes, salads, and daily specials. We also offer homemade desserts from old family recipes.
New this year is a hand dipped Ice cream, Sundaes, Milkshakes, and Smoothies.
Beer and Wine are also available.
