They were very busy the night we stopped in, but in no time they found us a table. Service was outstanding, our meal was on the table in no time flat. Oustanding BBQ, best we've had in quite some time. Will be back for sure!

My husband got a hard piece of corn bread. I would never complain, but the manager overheard our conversation. He came with a fresh batch for the table and about... More

The wonderful smell brought me in, and I'm so glad I stopped by. It's the best meal I've had on the outer Banks. I ordered the pork BBQ plate with chicken pastry and okra as my sides. The portions were huge and so tasty! The meat was tender and smoked just right. I added some vinegar based sauce and it... More

I had the pleasure of dropping by High Cotton during our recent trip to Kitty Hawk. I ordered a combo platter of ribs and fried chicken (dark), slaw and macaroni and cheese. It seemed like a mere 5 minutes from order until the food was sitting before us! And oh! THE FOOD! Everything was seasoned perfectly and the ribs fell... More

Staying across the street at the Hilton Garden Inn, fellow guests suggested we try the barbecue at High Cotton NC BBQ, and boy are we sure we did. Never would we have expected this at an OBX beach. The food was high quality, there were many choices and specials, and we found our takeout meal (great to eat at beach... More

BBQ is awesome, service is great, what else is there? I was skeptical at first since it looks like a bland chain, but so glad we visited. Brought my parents back this time, they loved it as well. Very affordable.
