During our annual excursion to the OBX, we had take out x 2, including ribs, brisket, smoked chicken and slaw. By popular vote of 10 members of the family, our meals were delicious. The take out is fast and efficient. The prices are reasonable.

This place has the feel of a locally owned favorite for the area. Nothing fancy, fine to wear casual, even shorts. Extremely fast service. 4 of us in the party and food was on the table within 5-7 minutes. We were amazed. Food was good. Between us in the party, the following was ordered: Brisket, Pulled Port BBQ, and Chicken.... More

My friend and I got our orders carry-out and that was definitely a wise choice. The indoor space was packed with families but we managed to get our orders in less than 10 minutes. Let me tell you, the quality and value for some of the best BBQ makes the visit to High Cotton worth it. I got the pork... More

We liked this place in 2013 & ventured back again...this time for takeout. We ordered the Package #3 for 13 adults & 2 children. We also ordered 2 additional full rib racks as I frequently overestimate the food consumption needs...as I did once again. Package #3 would have sufficed....despite some healthy appetites, we had leftovers, especially ribs! The order was... More

High Cotten BBQ is outstanding ! We went this past week while on vacation and I would say it was in the top 5 BBQ places I have ever eaten. We were seated right away and toll longer to decided what to get than it took to get our food. Everything was delicious. If you like Carolina style BBQ you... More

We asked around before choosing a bbq place when we stayed in Kitty Hawk. Ironically, this place was 1 minute from where we were staying, which made it just a little more perfect. But the food and service gives High Cotton my highest rating! We all ordered the pork bbq plate which comes with 2 sides. My husband asked about... More

We enjoyed our pulled chicken meals. Nice clean place, good service, and good prices. We went during the early bird time for a discounted price with coupon.
