Great NC BBQ!

The wife & I were both very impressed. The place itself isn't much to meet the eye, but the food is well worth it!

As a local this place is one of my favorites for BBQ. It's a hole in the wall place but those are usually the best kind. If you want REAL authentic NC BBQ then this is a MUST TRY! Just ask the locals.

Cute place located in the historic village of Corolla. Small place with outdoor seating. The menu is simple with the essentials of BBQ. However, the food was DELICIOUS! The flavors of all the food was perfect. The portions were appropriate and really hit the spot!

If you like Carolina BBQ and the vinegary taste, this may be the place for you! You order at a window of a shack, and eat at a picnic table (or take out to your location of choice). We had the regular barbecued pork, which is served with cornbread (sweet -?) and two sides. I tried the macaroni salad and... More

Simple and delicious, this is what a good pulled bbq sandwich should taste like. I've been here during my past two trips to the OBX, and when I return, this is the first place I want to go!

Absolutely our favorite barbecue and we've had it from Lexington to the banks. Great cornbread and sides. Call in your order since there's nowhere to eat inside.

We stopped in for some BBQ while we were in Corolla Village. I loved the vinegar sauce on the pulled pork- very tangy. The meat was smoked well. The ribs were tasty- had a nice glaze to them. We ate at the picnic tables and enjoyed all the chickens walking around. I'd recommend a visit if you are in the... More

We have been going to Corolla village bbq for many years.Our son used to work there years ago.The people are really friendly.The pulled pork sandwiches are to die for.Even though we went right at lunch,we were served our food very quickly.It is a really small place but the line moves quickly.Both the pork and chicken are so good.

To be honest, I haven't had anything here but the pulled pork, and slaw, but based on that it is without a doubt the best Carolina style pulled pork I have ever eaten. True Dixie tasting BBQ. Note: this place has no set hours, and closes when they run out of food!

I couldn't have been more pleased with the pulled pork as it was the best pulled pork I had ever eaten. The lima beans in the baked beans were not a welcome addition, but was easily overlooked because of the pulled pork. I would have eaten here again, but this was the last day they were open before closing for... More
