You can tell if the food is good if the grandkids eat it all, and they all of the food on their plates. The restaurant is back a bit from the Duck Road, but never go on looks alone. While it does not look like much the food more than makes up for the setting. The chicken tenders and grilled... More

Great BBQ and atmosphere a little cramped inside the restaurant but we had no waiting. It's a little hard to find but other than that it was great

We picked up an order, so I can't tell you about the atmosphere! The ribs were huge and delicious! Because we didn't dine in, I don't feel I'm able to give this a fair rating.

My wife and I had a very nice BBQ dinner at Sooey's (based on a local's recommendation). Sooey's didn't disappoint with good Brisket and esp Pork BBQ. This is probably one of the best places in Duck for Lunch or Dinner (IMO). Fun place, nice staff.

Everything was great. We are here just before the season starts so even though the Internet said they were open the first time we tried to come. Luckily we saw some activity in the plaza and tried again. Well worth it!

Excellent North Carolina BBQ. Come hungry and share the combo plate so you can try a little bit of everything like pulled port, ribs, beef brisket, and sausage. Beer available. Casual dining.

Stopped by for lunch because I was in the mood for good fried chicken and I had heard good things about it. I ordered the beef BBQ & Southern fried chicken. Amazing, when you're in the mood for something and it tastes exactly as you're in the mood for it to taste, it's incredible, the chicken was light and crispy... More

One of two ( that I know of) BBQ places in the upper OBX. It's ok, not great, but if you like BBQ anything it's certainly worth a trip to try it.

Six of us went to the Duck location for dinner. All six were very happy with their meals. The place is no nonsense - very small, with plastic utensils and styrofoam plates. But the BBQ and fried chicken was delicious. Would definitely go back next time we are in Duck.

Sooeys is ok but not the best in Duck. I liked Duck Deli better for the food. The hush puppies are very good and I enjoyed my side of creamy mashed potatoes. The BBQ pork sandwich was served on a dry bun and the portion of meat was small compared to other places in the area. They do offer an... More
