Visitors and locals who are cruising along Carolina Beach Road and who are hungry for a laid-back lunch or dinner that’s topped with a frozen treat can swing by the casual but tasty Papa Fin’s. Tucked away among a collection of shops, restaurants and local businesses, and offering fast-casual fare in an easy-going setting, Papa Fin’s is just unique enough to satisfy a world of different cravings.

The menu is separated into burgers and sandwiches, house specialties, quesadillas and salads, and tacos and burritos, and each category has its own unique choices. Hungry traditionalists will want to bite into the big sandwiches, like the Philly Cheesesteak, the Turkey Bacon Club, or the American Cheeseburger, while more adventurous diners will want to try the more unique selections, like the Mexican Cheeseburger with jalapeños and avocado, or the Mexican house specialties like the Steak Mexicano, which is comprised of steak strips sautéed with onions and tomatoes. Be sure and save room for dessert, as Papa Fin’s offers more than a dozen ice cream flavors like cotton candy, strawberry cheesecake, and chocolate chip cookie dough. With lots of goodies that fit in well before or after a trip to the beach, Papa Fin’s is a good choice for fast and a little indulgent beach grub.

Wrightsville Beach Vacation Rentals

Wrightsville Beach Vacation Rentals

While Wrightsville Beach has a collection of hotels and motels, the primary type of accommodations in this region are vacation rentals. There are literally hundreds of vacation rentals in the town of Wrightsville Beach, which are scattered throughout the landscape and are found along the oceanfront, soundfront, and in between waterfront regions in the interior section of the island. Because of the sheer geography of this skinny barrier island, guests in vacation rentals will never be far from the town’s top attractions, which include the local beaches, the waterfront boasting, fishing, and paddling scenes, and the variety of shops and restaurants that are found throughout the area.
