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”.

Laid back bbq

Husband and I both had the beef brisket with beans, which was good. Indoor and outdoor dining. You could go in a swimsuit cover up; it's that casual.

If you like lots of fatty real smokey (to that is not the same as BBQ) ribs with little bland sauce in a noisy setting then this is for you. We would not return. Oh yes if you like cloying banana pudding that has no bananas then go for it. The close slaw was good, the iced tea less than... More

We found this place on our last trip and it hasn't changed one bit! The best hushpuppies around (don't forget the honey spread). Some places leave most of their smoke in the air -- not Pigman's. A perfect combination of smoke, rub and sauce make their ribs melt in your mouth. Also had the pulled pork and the chopped beef....great... More

We always come here to enjoy their pork BBQ sandwiches and hush puppies! The staff is always friendly and the food always delish! This is usually our first stop when we drive in!

They have red sauce, hot sauce, and great Eastern Carolina Style BBQ sauce. Excellent BBQ, baked beans, slaw, & hush puppies. It was a feast and I would highly recommend it to everyone.

You order at the counter, they give you the cup to get your owe drink, then they bring the food out to you when it's ready. The hush puppies were too dense, the ribs weren't spectacular. I would call this fast food. No where near as good as High Cotton where they give you big delicious portions and actually wait... More

Some of the best BBQ around. We got take out so we could enjoy eating out on the balcony, and they packed up everything real nice. Great BBQ and the baked beans are better than I could ever make!

You didn't have to wait long to get your meal. Excellent service, prices and food. Glad we stopped for lunch and of course sweet tea. Hush puppies were very good too. There's even a coupon in the booklet to use anytime.

Bbq and the Carolinas are ubiquitous. The vinegar based sauce of North Carolina was something that I'd never tried before. I love 'cue as much as the next person, but having tried North Carolina's strong vinegar sauce, I think I'll stick firmly with my opinion that the South Carolina mustard based sauce is the best for ME. The pulled porch... More
