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”.

The food is good but the cost for the amount you get is not balanced. If you want good bar-be-que at a good price try High Cotton.

We got a recommendation for the place. Walked in, line was t the door, you had to order and pay first then look for a table. I figured after waiting about 1/2 hour online, then we wouldn't find a table to eat at (place is too small) we walked out and went elsewhere and we were seated right away and... More

Stopped in yesterday to get 2 sandwiches to go. One pork one beef. I wish I had eaten the beef last. It was twice as good as the pork. I love my BBQ and it was one of the best I ever had. I've had BBQ all over this country and everyone claims their state has the best. Everyone knows... More

The regular BBQ sauce on the table was runny. The sides were average. The ribs were very good. The BBQ chicken was also very good.

Salt-cured country ham is getting harder to find anywhere. I bought a half pound of thin sliced and enjoyed for days.

Nice atmosphere, staff was friendly, food came very quick. The food was terrible. The pulled pork and beef were extremely greasy. I picked up my sandwich and the grease dripped. The sauces and meet were tasteless.

Stopping at Pigman's when we arrive on the Outer Banks is a family tradition. We love the taste of North Carolina BBQ and Pigman's hush puppies! The people are friendly and the service is great.
