Thought it would be a fast food meal, it was excellent. Better than we thought. We had pulled chicken

We went there for lunch today, half a rack and fried shrimp fed my two kids and I. Very tasty and fast. Hush puppies are awesome. I don't think they need to use BBQ sauce though. Very clean and staff is super friendly. As far as pricing it's reasonable. Will definitely visit again.

Had lunch here and we all enjoyed it. We had sampler, Chicken, Pork, Brisket and Ribs, also tried the corn bread and BBQ wings. The chicken was good kids really liked it as well as the Mac n cheese and beans. Wife and I liked the brisket, ribs were very fatty, I'd avoid them in the future, pork was okay... More

Give this place a try. The staff was great and very nice. It's just not as good as high cotton. The chicken is actually better than high cotton but the barbecue is lacking a little. The sides were average at best

A nice little BBQ place with decent food for what it is. I personally liked their fried shrimp and hush puppies best, but nothing was bad. Decent prices and you won't leave hungry. The location in Duck is small and in the Scarborough shops, so it does not seat a large number of guests, but many people so here for... More

One highlight of our biannual trip to outer banks was Sooeys. Went there last week on our first day and was sorely disappointed. I had pulled pork and some others had burgers and brisket. We were all disappointed as the food was not as good as we remembered. Disappointed with our Carolina BBQ experience. Need to find a new place.

We kept saying we were going to eat BBQ while we were in N. C. Finally, we were ready for lunch and in Duck, after our ECO Cruise. We found Sooeys online.It was relaxed and comfortable. We ended up not getting BBQ, but fried chicken (two of us) and crab cakes (one of us). The chicken, crab cakes, mac n... More

We carried in one of the family packs. The fried chicken, hush puppies and cornbread were delish. The pork BBQ is strongly vinegared, a bit too much so for our group. The chicken BBQ had a sweeter sauce that we enjoyed more. Sides were average. Food was ready when they said it would be. Would return.

We ate here for lunch one day with mixed reviews. I had the fried chicken which was excellent. The hush puppies are some of the best I've ever had, as is the cornbread. The baked beans were just ok, as were the fries. My brother-in-law loved his ribs and others loved the pulled pork.

We stopped for lunch and the place was busy but I don't know why because all 3 of our lunches were terrible. I got the pulled bbq chicken sandwich. The roll was a soggy mess and the chicken was bland. The side of instant mashed potatoes didn't help. Our grandson got the kids chicken fingers which were barely edible. They... More
