This is our second year eating here and everything we have ordered has been excellent. Fast friendly service and the atmosphere is laid back.

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.

I have been remiss in my review for High Cotton - we were in Kitty Hawk in June. We wanted good NC BBQ and were tired of the high prices and disappointing food at another restaurant (apparently that owner believes his own PR and thinks quirky is an acceptable substitute for good food) and read some reviews of High Cotton,...

We experienced true southern hospitality at High Cotton. The food was very good in a casual, homestyle atmosphere. The brisket was excellent as were the ribs and fried okra. Visited twice in 4 days!

We got take out from here twice--pulled pork and brisket. Both were very good, smokey but not overpowering; the brisket was tender and juicy. They come without sauce, so you need to ask. It's kind of a pain the sauces are in tiny cups that hold 1 tablespoon's worth, so you end up with lots of little tubs, but I... More
