Great Food, No Atmosphere

Six of us went to the Duck location for dinner. All six were very happy with their meals. The place is no nonsense - very small, with plastic utensils and styrofoam plates. But the BBQ and fried chicken was delicious. Would definitely go back next time we are in Duck.

Sooeys is ok but not the best in Duck. I liked Duck Deli better for the food. The hush puppies are very good and I enjoyed my side of creamy mashed potatoes. The BBQ pork sandwich was served on a dry bun and the portion of meat was small compared to other places in the area. They do offer an... More

This actually for the sooeys in corolla. Started with drinks and a couple people in our party wanted glass of water but all they had was bottle water. No biggy. Beer was not the coldest. Most ordered pulled pork and loved it I ordered beef brisket and it was on the fatty side. Sides were average for a bbq place.

First time trying Sooeys. We ordered 4 entrees. The pulled pork is great! Spicy, peppery, vinegar based pork. Well chopped and well done! We also got a half rack of ribs, which were obviously cooked low and slow but really lacked any depth of flavor. Touched with house BBQ but not enough. Sides were all fine. Pork is the star... More

Casual atmosphere. Downhome bbq (beef, pork or chicken) served as sandwiches or platters. I usually get their collard greens or coleslaw as a side. I've never had anything I didn't like. The waitstaff is pleasant and efficient.

Another beach letdown. Another thing on the list of "musts" on list of things to do or see or eat provided by friends. This one nearly met my expectations. Our party had/shared the ribs, pulled pork, fried chicken, and assorted sides. Everything was good. Good. Not the BEST of any of these items I've ever had. You want "real" NC... More

Great ribs, not baby back, but cooked perfectly, not too much smoke, Great sauce but not too much. .Plenty of food to go around for the price.

I ordered ribs - and they came in a huge bin - I did not ralize they were not baby back ribs so beware - full rack will last you 2-3 meals so order accordingly! Service seemed a bit slow as there was only 1 guy doing the register and serving tables.

If you want some BBQ,this is the place.However-we have had equally great and terrible experiences at Sooey's. We have been there several times. 2012:bad,2013:great,2014:really bad so it is hard to tell what you are going to get.The bad applies to service and food. We have had really great southern food there and the kids love that it is served on... More
