Description: Pigman's Bar-B-Que is the premiere barbeque restaurant on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. For over 16 years, we have been serving up 'Que to tourists and locals alike. We have won multiple awards including "Best of the Beach" in the BBQ category in 2012 and BBQ Showdown OBX "Best Ribs" in 2013! We offer many varieties of BBQ with signature sauces to go along with it! We have all the fixings you can imagine and we also do catering.At Pigman’s Bar-B-Que, we take all the necessary steps to make our BBQ unique as well. For example, all of our signature BBQ’s are cooked on site by smoking. We cook this way for two reasons: To cook the meat slowly to retain the natural juices, and infuse it with oak flavor. Then we add our signature sauces, thus creating BBQ. Every BBQ option we sell is hand-crafted, and has some sort of vinegar-based sauce added to them. Although our vinegar-based BBQ options are delicious, we have discovered that there are many different palates out there to please. As a result, a few of our BBQ options have ketchup and an additional blend of proprietary spices to give our customers a “tomato based” option, also known as “ketchup based”.

“Average for BBQ”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

My wife and I ate dinner here on the night we arrived in OBX. She ordered the turkey BBQ and I had a half rack of ribs. Although she really enjoyed her meal, mine was nothing special. I was expecting more flavor from an establishment that only has BBQ. Also, their hush puppies were below average and banana-shaped. The building was plain, but the service was friendly.

We were looking for "authentic North Carolina BBQ" for our one night in NC and boy, did we find it!! All their BBQ choices were excellent--beef, pork, tuna. Melt-in-your-mouth yumminess. Friendly service. Atmosphere simple but surprisingly crass in some of the signs & such. That was the only distasteful part of this experience!

“Great NC BBQ”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

If you like BBQ with a vinegar based sauce then this is the place. We all had the pulled pork sandwich and the meat was moist and juicy. A couple more hush puppies would have been nice.

A bit disappointing. Not much too it. The food is so average and nothing special at all. There are MUCH better places for BBQ in OBX.

“Best Pork Barbeque”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We ordered the pork barbecue and it was loaded. We couldn't finish it all, but made a gallant attempt.
