“I love Sooey's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is a bare bones eating establishment, but the food is awesome! The ribs were superb, tender with great sauce and little fat. I am hard to please when it comes to cole slaw, but there's was great - sweet and tangy. The portions were large and the price was very good!

“Nice for a quick lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

The family stops here every year when we arrive at the Outer Banks. I don't go for the BBQ, I go for the outstanding flounder sandwich. The large bun has a whole fillet and is fried to perfection. The hushpuppies are also fantastic. Everything is always hot and delicious.

“Not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

This was not a good experience for BBQ. The meat was tender but tasteless. The green beans were straight from a can, not even salted or warmed. The baked beans were Bush's with a small amount of bacon thrown in. The only pleasant thing, and something that made us go back for more, was their cornbread. Other than that I wouldn't give it a second glance.
