About Live.Eat.Surf

Live.Eat.Surf is a family of full-service concepts serving California-inspired Mexican menu offerings with a robust seafood selection in a relaxed and casual surf-themed atmosphere. Headquartered in Wilmington, NC the group was originally founded in 1993.

Each Live.Eat.Surf concept, Tower 7, K 38, and Kbueno, operates across the lunch and dinner dayparts, with Tower 7 also offering breakfast through its Café del Mar. All stores serve traditional Mexican favorites including tacos, quesadillas, and chips and salsa, though each has its own signature focus.

At the time of Hargett Hunter’s investment in 2020, Live.Eat.Surf operated five restaurants in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach, NC. For more information, please visit
