Ribs are very good, no sauce, bigger smoke ring would be nice, very tender...would definitely go back

Chicken was good and tasty but not hot and juicy. Vinegar-based hot sauce on the side was great. Kept thinking of excuses to head back to Corolla Village and get bbq and ribs. Cornbread is good as well as the coleslaw. Beans were tasty too.

Have ordered many times and enjoyed. This yr we ordered for 15 of us. Chicken had little flavor and ribs were dry and overlooked. Yams were good but overall we were all disappointed.

If you like North Carolina vinegar based barbecue this is a terrific option. Ribs and chicken were good but pulled pork was out of this world. My picky 9 year old kept coming back for more. And the sides were excellent. Love the shack and tables for dining but terrific take out too!

This is takeout BBQ, although they have picnic tables you can dine at outside if you choose. We did a family dinner takeout. This is my 3rd visit (also went here last 2 years) and it does not fail -- great BBQ takeout for 14 people served up 10 mins. The food was excellent, pulled pork, ribs and chicken were... More

Great NC BBQ- we love it ALL- the chicken, ribs and of course the pulled pork. The beans and coleslaw are awesome - better than the BBQ sauce to put on the meats. And don't forget the cornbread!! Call in your order so they don't run out and you miss something great

Corolla BBQ is real-deal North Carolina BBQ featuring pork and vinegar based sauces. It was walking distance from my rental in Ocean Hill and is carry out only. What worked -- the service was very fast and the man working the window was very nice. The pork sandwich was good, not as good as High Cotton in Kitty Hawk, but... More

The food itself was pretty good, but there were not many choices available at this location. Our kids seemed to like it OK and my wife thought it was average. I did enjoy the ribs and baked beans quite a bit as it took me back to my days living in the south!

We stumbled on this place and since we were hungry stopped for lunch- I had the small pulled pork with coleslaw an NC vinegar and my husband have the same except in a larger size. Very tasty- we ate outside at a picnic table under the trees It's on the outskirts of the historic village so look for it

I stopped by for a quick lunch in between sightseeing. The service was prompt, the food was good, and the outdoor picnic tables were convenient. If you're not a fan of the vinegar-style sauce, you might want to request that it be served on the side.
