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”.

We actually ate here 2 nights in a row. The food is amazing. Who would have thought travel to the beach and eat BBQ but it was well worth it. The staff was friendly and always making sure we had everything we needed. The facility is clean and the menu provides many choices. If in the area stop by here and you will not be disappointed!

During my short trip to the Outer Banks I stopped by this place because I've always wanted to try NC BBQ. It was really tasty stuff! I got their BBQ boat which was a BBQ sandwich, fries, and hushpuppies. The meal was pretty big so wasn't able to finish and it was very enjoyable, but man that stuff can dehydrate you! I was drinking water for the rest of the day~
