Description: Pigman's Bar-B-Que is the premiere barbeque restaurant on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. For over 16 years, we have been serving up 'Que to tourists and locals alike. We have won multiple awards including "Best of the Beach" in the BBQ category in 2012 and BBQ Showdown OBX "Best Ribs" in 2013! We offer many varieties of BBQ with signature sauces to go along with it! We have all the fixings you can imagine and we also do catering.At Pigman’s Bar-B-Que, we take all the necessary steps to make our BBQ unique as well. For example, all of our signature BBQ’s are cooked on site by smoking. We cook this way for two reasons: To cook the meat slowly to retain the natural juices, and infuse it with oak flavor. Then we add our signature sauces, thus creating BBQ. Every BBQ option we sell is hand-crafted, and has some sort of vinegar-based sauce added to them. Although our vinegar-based BBQ options are delicious, we have discovered that there are many different palates out there to please. As a result, a few of our BBQ options have ketchup and an additional blend of proprietary spices to give our customers a “tomato based” option, also known as “ketchup based”.

Got fried shrimp because they were out of beef. Very good. Barbecued pork sandwich was good but greasy. Got both to go but they have a nice seating area.

Perhaps one of the best thing about getting the BBQ plate that has half ribs and half chicken, the hush puppies were amazing. Of course the star of the show was the pulled pork sandwich that had a perfectly pulled pork. I was a happy camper at the options of trying all the types of bbq sauces they had on... More

I had the pulled pork sandwich. The pork itself was very nice, didn't like the chooses in BBQ sauces. It was just okay. Won't go back.

Patrice, we are so sorry the sauces were the reason you won't be back since you liked the pork. We encourage you to come back, even though your comment states that you won't...maybe just don't put the sauce on so that you can enjoy just the pork. We hope you will reconsider since the source of your unhappiness is not... More

We both liked the pork BBQ we ordered and the hushpuppies were the best I've ever had. Turkey, catfish and even tuna BBQ are also sold. There was plenty of seating available and the service was good. You order and pay at the counter and a server brings your order to your table. We tried the strawberry cornbread and it... More

Large portions and yummy hush puppies. Barbeque did not have a smoked flavor and was dry. It was fine after putting on a lot of sauce.

We hope you don't think of us as "fast food" Don! We are a quick-service restaurant and we take pride in our fast service, but certainly hope you wouldn't compare us to that of fast food, even though it is quite speedy! Anyhow we are glad you enjoyed the food and appreciate the review. The batch you got must have... More

April, we tend to go lighter on the vinegar and let our guests decide on the amount of sauce they want to add to it. We are glad you enjoyed your meal though. We are glad you loved it and hope that you will return, thanks for the review! See you again next time :) More

Finally made it to Pigman's for lunch based on a friend's recommendation. Wow small building when you go in you order from the front register from the menus posted above the cashiers.

A traditional stop for us on our way to Hatteras, going to and coming home. We have never been disappointed with the food. The hush puppies are the best, and the pulled pork sandwiches, are authentic NC flavor. I only wish that you carried fried okra. The coleslaw was excellent as well. And as always, the staff is smiling, courteous,... More
