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”.

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?!?

We ordered the Jumbo BBQ Pork sandwiches to take-out. The jumbo sandwich has 8oz. of meat. It was cooked in a vinegar sauce and we added red sauce. Delicious!

Got takeout for 16 people. Ordered SC Pork - never had tastier BBQ in my life. Pork was devoid of visible fat and gristle. Came with cole slaw, rolls, sauces and hush puppies. ordered extra cornbread - excellent. quick, friendly and good service. I'll go again when at the OBX.

I ate there about 2 weeks ago. It had been about 3+ years from the last time I ate there. Maybe it was the long period of time between visits - but it looked like there was a greater selection and the food tasted better. The prices were also in a positive.

The prices are on par with a premium sandwich from a fast food chain. The food is excellent. The hush puppies are the best we've ever had. The fries are great and I'm not a fry fan. They are hot enough so you can eat your sandwich and they will stool be blazing hot.

We are so glad you enjoyed our food! We like to think of ourselves as a "quick service" restaurant rather than "fast food" but we appreciate your kind comments on our products. We are glad you liked the fries...maybe we turned you into a fry fan! We thank you for the review and hope to see you again real soon! More
