Year after year, still as good

We went there yesterday. It is as good as it was every other year we have been here. This is my son's favorite place to eat on the Island.

We always stop by the Barbecue house at least twice every time we are in Oak Island. It is a great family restaurant and a perfect place to take the grandkids for dinner. They have great choices for kids under 10 and also give them tokens for a prize from the toy machines up front which is a big hit... More

We look forward to eating here all the way from Youngstown, Ohio! We visit Oak Island every spring and every fall and eat here at least 3 times each visit! You will never have a bad meal! Fantastic southern style-you will not find a better restaurant anywhere! It's not fancy-foam plates and plastic forks but that keeps the prices down:)

We LOVE the BBQ house. We come to OKI often and we always make sure we have at least one meal at the BBQ house. The variety of sauces are great - they are all really good. Love the pulled pork. They have the best hushpuppies and butter- its a real treat. The kids also love the BBQ House. They... More

They have excellent Barbeque. Recommend. If you have eaten at Lexington Barbeque in NC you will like this.

We had BBQ Plate and Chicken Plate specials - excellent food, nice servings; ours included drink. Good tea and deserts including banana pudding and apple cobbler. Waitress Jenny was very helpful and pleasant. Two choices of cold slaw, both good. Any kind of BBQ sauce you could want.

The BBQ House serves really good pulled pork, ribs, chicken and more. Lots of sides to choose from, and 6 sauces to satisfy all comers. Desserts too. Big take-out business. Friendly staff. We eat here for dinner 3-6 times per month year round. Price is right. Great for couples, friends, family. Kids special some nights. Also great for lunch...haven't tried... More

Really good BBQ. Not so overly smoked that it haunts you for hours. Great with or without the variety of sauces. I tried them all with the pulled pork and they were all good. The red slaw was a treat since we don't get it back home.

Went here for lunch one day. Our server was a young gal who was very informative, helpful and had a very engaging personality. The bbq was very good. I'm a big lover of bbq and I was very pleased with my pulled pork sandwich. There were around 5-6 sauce choices on the table so I was able to sample different... More

The BBQ here is refreshing after living in South Carolina. While they have pulled pork and a mustard base sauce available this is Memphis style all the way. Love their beans and potato salad. Wife likes the white cole slaw (they have red too). This place is busy and has a plain atmosphere. But as I'm eating their tender, meaty... More
