Once you walk inside High Cotton, you know you arrived at a quality BBQ restaurant. The dining room, albeit relatively small (my guess about 25 tables), had high ceilings and an airy atmosphere. The place looked very clean and new. Our meals were served within ten minutes after our order. We enjoyed our meal so much, that we went back... More

This is a small restaurant with simply amazing food! We had 9 people in our party and we were seated with in 15 minutes. We ordered the second family option with just a couple add ons.

Lightning fast service! Food was fresh and full of flavor. Obviously the pulled pork was why anyone would go there but the other items on the menu do not disappoint!

Love High Cotton.... it's a no frills BBQ place with yummy food and simple menu. The sides all rock as well. I always go between the brisket sandwich and pulled pork. Will keep coming back until I've tried everything!

High Cotton is good food served on simple plates with generous portions,and is always fresh. Your meal is served in a timely fashion with excellent service. The Carolina Bar-b-que and fried chicken is simply the best. There is a very friendly atmosphere and this restuarant does a very active catering business.

Delicious barbecue, love the salad topped with chicken BBQ. Family friendly! Friendly owner! Kids love the ribs. Great for take out. Small inside and not much atmosphere.
