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”.

We actually ate here 2 nights in a row. The food is amazing. Who would have thought travel to the beach and eat BBQ but it was well worth it. The staff was friendly and always making sure we had everything we needed. The facility is clean and the menu provides many choices. If in the area stop by here... More

During my short trip to the Outer Banks I stopped by this place because I've always wanted to try NC BBQ. It was really tasty stuff! I got their BBQ boat which was a BBQ sandwich, fries, and hushpuppies. The meal was pretty big so wasn't able to finish and it was very enjoyable, but man that stuff can dehydrate... More

We were staying in Kill Devil Hills and asked our AirBnB host about this place, after seeing the sign driving in. It was in December and a lot of places are closed for the season. Our host was pescatarian, so didn't eat pork, but said he had other guests who liked this place, so we gave it a try. We... More

We tried their Pork BBQ and "Turkey-Que" sandwiches-authentic BBQ with lots of flavor, complimented by bottles of Pigman's signature sauce and hot sauce at the table, which we slathered on the sandwiches. Delicious. We also had a couple sides - my favorite was the baked beans, an excellent compliment to the sandwiches. I spooned some of that on along with... More

Being December not many places are open later or are closed for the winter season. We asked people were to eat and most they told us were closed. We saw Pigman's and decided to give it a try even though there was only one car in the lot. The two girls working were GREAT and told us all about the... More

By far, some of the best bar-b-que I have ever eaten. Very meaty, without other stuff chopped in with it. Very tasty indeed! The sides were most excellent as well. Adult beverages are also available. Nice decor with roomy tables. You've got to try this place if you're in the area. It won't disappoint if you're into fine dining on... More

Picked up Pigman for Take-out. They are always consistent. Always yummy. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is nothing bad to say here. Casual seating, well priced, excellent food. This is bar-b-que done right!
