This restaurant was recommended by the locals and they were right. The best friend chicken we had while down south. The bbq was very good and the serving size was very good as well. The place was clean and the staff very friendly. Prices are not bad at all very reasonable especially in a vacation area. It would be great... More

Basic restaurant but thoroughly delicious food. Served on plastic trays but good portions of meat and a huge range of sides. Friendly staff and well priced. Limited desserts but we weren't really there for pudding! Recommend either the ribs or meat combo.

The wife and I ate here during Thanksgiving week and we loved it. I had the brisket and she had the pulled pork. The brisket was lean and delicious. The pulled pork was very good and both portions were very generous. I had a side of greens and being from Wisconsin I don't get very often, and I thought it... More

We've been to this restaurant three times: once in July 2013 and twice in July 2014. We tried a couple other BBQ restaurants in the Outer Banks, and by far this one is our favorite. The service is excellent. The owner greets you at the door and makes small talk with you. When we told him we were from Arizona,... More

This is a good place near the beach for a quick lunch or tasty dinner. You will go back once you've tried their pork sandwiches. Very clean, plenty of parking, and very friendly staff. Prices are very reasonable.

My husband and I were in last weekend and ordered the brisket and ribs. Both were excellent as well as the collards and baked beans that we had for sides. I only wish we could get that great food back home! The atmosphere was very authentic. Older pictures hanging on the walls and the two girls working were very friendly... More

I really loved the family atmosphere of this place... bbq was tender and cooked to perfection... service extremely friendly.. lots of great bbq history hanging on their walls, they've clearly been doing this for a long time... it's worth purchasing a bottle or 2 of their sauce to bring back home with you.

Looked at this place for some good BBQ food after being massively disappointed with what we served up in New York. My wife and I were not disappointed this time. There was a slight error with my wifes order (which was probably an error on our part) which was dealt with amazingly by who I believe was the owner. He... More

Delicious chicken and BBQ.You will get a delicious meal, nothing fancy, but delicious and fresh. Prices are excellent for families. We live near High Cotton and when people come to visit us, they always want High Cotton BBQ. Eat in or take out, it's delicious. They will even cater.
