Reasonable prices, short wait for your order, nice place to sit down and enjoy some pulled pork/chicken. Wish there were more like them around.

The restaurant was very clean and reminded me of a retro place from back in the 1960's. Could use a little more decorating. Our server was top notch and attentive. The chicken was to die for the cold slaw was perfect and creamy and the fries were hot and crisp. The only complaint would be the hush puppies. Never saw... More

Staying at the hotel across the street, we walked to the High Cotton. We got there at 8:00pm not realizing they closed at 8:30 (I try not to get to a restaurant that close to closing time as a courtesy to the staff). Our server made some great recommendations for dinner and made us feel as though we could stay... More

Have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. I had my 'go to' pulled pork sandwich last Fri and it was as good as ever. It was my wife's second visit. She had briscuit and said it was the best she has ever had. She is from Arkansas and knows her briscuit/bbq, etc.

After a "quick" (not so much) trip for an overnighter in Kitty Hawk we arrived hungry on a Saturday as we did not get away from home in time to beat the turnover traffic and sat longer than expected and couldn't get across the street farther north at a great BBQ joint we like, which I will review later. So... More

Have dined there many times, but this time it was just so so. BBQ was mushy, luke warm, not as good as we have had before. Seems like I got the scraps from the bottom of the pot. Wife had BBQ chicken and she said it was good. Service was fantastic, had a waiter that was great!!! Wish the BBQ... More
