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 decided to get take out from Pigman's and are glad we did! The ribs were great & so were the sweet potato fries! The wait for take-out was less than 10 minutes. Awesome choice.

Stopped for lunch and had Brunswick Stew and a pulled pork sandwich. The stew was wonderful...spicy and sweet, just like I like it. The sandwich was okay, but I like my pulled pork made with tomato-based BBQ sauce. The staff was wonderful and went out of their way to make our meal delightful. I have eaten here in the past...

Stopped in as the idea of bbq sounded good. It was a mistake. The service was okay - take you order up front and then bring it to ou when it is ready. I had the bbq beef palte. It was luke warm and tasted like it was watered down (maybe unfrozen?). The baked beans were like campbells pork and... More

We ate here during our recent trip to Kill Devil Hills. Excellent BBQ in the OBX, and ranks as one of the best in NC! Eat and Enjoy!

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.
