Last year we ate at their Duck location and found it quite good. This Time we ate at the Corrolla location and were disappointed in the quality of our food. The ribs were dry and they messed up one of the orders. They fixed it quickly but this was surprising when compared to our previous experience. We will not be back and have found a better place for Q in Corolla

Their NC pulled pork BBQ was an affront to the legacy of all good NC pulled pork. It mushy, watery and tasteless. The sides were okay, the Corolla Golds were the only good thing we had. It sadens me that many people come here that have never experienced this great NC tradation will leave thinking this mush was it. Please skip Sooey's and go to Corolla Village BBQ experience the real thing.

They had just opened this location when we visited. The food was great and the staff was friendly. The mac and cheese was the best I have had in a long time. But the seating area is small so make a reservation unless you like to wait. They also do allot of takeout and have pretty good deals for big orders.

We were hoping for real southern BBQ,but very very disappointed to say the least. The ribs are what appear to be boiled or steamed, they have no char or smoke line. Additionally they were fatty and tasteless. Don"t waste your money

Got takeout one night from Sooey's. Have to say the Ribs were DELICIOUS!!!! Cooked to perfection and VERY meaty. Everything we ordered was very tasty. If we had one complaint it would be that the pulled pork had no sauce of any kind and though it had a good taste, it was quite dry.
