The BBQ House smokes their own meats and makes their own sauces. The white and red slaw are both made there as well as their homemade desserts like peach cobbler that is so good.

In terms of barbecue options on the island, the pickings are slim. But the Barbeque House does just fine. In most other places it would rate better, but when you're in NC the bar is raised a bit, and that's fine. I had the rib plate with hush puppies & fried okra. Everything was good (the service was a little... More

I'm not really a big meat eater, so was mad when the hubby showed up with take out from this place. It was really busy, even on a week night and he waited 20 minutes for the order. He got me smoked chicken breast, it was ok, I ate half of it and left the rest for him. He got... More

We ordered food for about 30 people for our wedding at our beach house on a Monday night. My friend brought down TONS of pulled pork that she had made in NY and froze. I called the order in and asked for two different types of chicken. BBQ and fried, I believe. Because we were the hosts, we had two... More

Got food to go one evening while visiting Oak Island. Awesome okra! BBQ, FF, slaw were all good for a barbecue place. Received cinnamon butter for the hush puppies, Yum! Sweet tea is good. Lady that took my order inside could have been a little more polite but other than that the food was good. A little pricey but it... More

If you want Southern chopped barbeque, do not go to The Barbeque House. This is pulled pork, and to me it is way better than chopped. I am not a big rib eater, but my husband says the ribs are good too.

We had a large group and had to wait a bit to be seated at two separate booths. Everything we ordered was tasty from the BBQ Pork to the Ribs & Wings. The staff were great with the kids.

I'm amazed by the great reviews of The Barbecue House. All I can figure is that previous reviewers have not had real, slow-smoked barbecue. My husband used to own a commercial smoker, which he and a friend took to fairs and events. They smoked the meat for 12 hours or longer, to the point where it develops a "bark," the... More
