When you head out to the beach this summer for some fun in the sun chances are that you will forget some necessary item and the chances are even better that you won’t be bringing anything to eat.  The Snak Shak in Carolina Beach is a quaint eatery on the Boardwalk that offers a variety of delicious quick foods that everyone loves.  Just a short stroll from the beach and from parking, the Snak Shak has you covered. 
Locally owned and operated by Pleasure Island resident Tammy Jordan, The Snak Shak is now closing in on their one year anniversary.  On June 30th they will have been open and serving up fast hot meals to hungry beachgoers and boardwalkers who love the convenient location and the tasty fare.  Jordan opened the Snak Shak after years of vacationing here at Carolina Beach.  She fell in love with the area and all those vacations turned into regular weekend visits and then finally she became a permanent resident, now loving her business at the beach.  Having always worked in an office setting, Jordan loves this change of pace.  “I love working with so many people, seeing so many different faces and meeting all the tourists,” says Tammy. 
The business plan at the Snak Shak is simple and effective as Jordan focuses on serving up quality food with friendly service.  They are a casual as it gets which means no worries if you are just walking in from the beach in your swimsuit, everyone is always welcome in the Snak Shak!
The Snak Shak cooks up a variety of great foods for the beach or walking around the boardwalk.  Their specialty is Hot Dogs and they were even voted the best on the beach by a WWAY poll and ran closely in the race for best in the Wilmington area against another very well recognized name in Hot Dogs throughout most of the polling.  So needless to say, if you are going to the Snak Shak you should definitely try a Hot Dog!  If Hot Dogs aren’t your thing don’t worry the Snak Shak offers a multitude of other great selections to fill your belly.  You will also find that the Snak Shak serves up delicious burgers, BBQ sandwiches, chicken minis, nachos, and even their famous “Frito Burrito.”  They even have a vast selection of snacks like chips, candy bars, and boiled peanuts.  Wash it all down with an ice cold drink.  You can even add chips and a drink to any menu item to make it a combo.
