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”.

I had read about Pigmans in a "best of" article and decided to try them. The young man behind the register was very helpful. I chose the beef brisket sandwich and my partner chose the eastern style pulled pork sandwich. The sandwiches were GINORMOUS! They were so big that we could not finish the large order of fries that came... More

We ordered take out for a large group. We read the menu from the 2014 2015 restaurant menu guide in our cottage. When my 83.00 total came up to 102.00, I became concerned. I was told their prices were different in store because the price of meat recently went up ..smh... (some by 5 or 10 dollar differences!) The group... More

I have to note first that we went to this restaurant in the off-season, pretty near closing time. I think that probably wasn't the peak time to sample their bbq. In the summer season at a regular meal time it's probably at least 30% better. The bbq was tasty but the meat was a bit overdone and obviously reheated. The... More

I always try to find a good BBQ place when I travel and I can say, this was not it. The food was way to expensive for the portion size and was over cooked. If you are looking for a better BBQ place try High Cotton BBQ, much better value and the food was amazing.

Look no further for a BBQ restaurant that caters to families. Clean, plenty of tables, and, oh yes, excellent food! The staff was kind and were great with the kids. Getting in earlier helped to get a good table and there's plenty of parking. Be sure to sample all the sauces as well. Did I mention the great food?!?
