“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

My son loves eating here. It is yummy! The BBQ is wonderful. If we are there for lunch, I sometimes get a grilled cheese sandwich and fries. The staff is always so friendly and treat you like a local. This is probably my favorite place to eat on the Island. I can't wait to eat there again in June!

“GreatBBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

I was very surprised how good this restaurant was. I come from a family that has been cooking hogs for BBQ for over 60 years and this place was great. Several types of sauces. Defiantly will go again

“Good BBQ on Oak Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

We had sandwiches at this shop and the pulled pork was very good. The sauces on the table let you choose which BBQ sauce you want to use. I tried the HOT sauce and it was very good. Their BBQ sauce is also very good. It is great to have a BBQ House on Oak Island.

“OI Cuisine Commando Eats Meat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

When to visit: lunch or when sick of seafood, at breakfast, lunch, or dinner

Type: home barbecue

Ambiance: plastic forks, paper plates, wooden booths, four different squirt bottles of barbecue sauce (vinegary, tomatoey, SC mustard, and sweet House sauce), a hint of smoky air, and a smiing, bikini-clad pig roasting on her chaise lounge on the sign outside, and lemonade or iced tea options in foam cups.

Difference Dividend: A pleasant change of venue from all the other aspiring frutta del mare options in Brunswick County.

Service: they know they serve good barbecue and are eager to serve it with a squad of Piggy-Barbecue-House-pastel-t-shirt-clad waitresses

Vegetarian value: fuggedaboutid, but red or white slaw, green beans, sweet potato fries, fried okra, onion rings, and collards don’t hold a candle to the meat.

For me, the signature dish is the lunch special barbecue pork sandwich with fries. This $5.99 special is quick with the best of NC coal cooking: that fall-off-your-fork, melt-in-your-mouth tenderness so characteristic of pulled pork. There's plenty of flavor without the table sauces, but I'm partial to the peppery sauce. Try the sandwich with the red slaw on top. The railroad-car feel of the dining room is partially compensated by the waist to ceiling windows overlooking the kitchen beside you. The vats and gallon jugs of indifferently stored commercial condiments minimize the kitchen pleasure. Wood paneling of the walls is hidden by an assortment of framed photos including sports figures. Wipe your hands and jowls with the roll of paper towels at each table. (You can really enjoy your food with a whole roll of paper as backup). I like my barbecue chicken moist, so I stay away from it here. Do try the Brunswick stew, an alleged local special, but don't enter the debate on whether the Brunswick refers to Georgia, NC, or SC. On your way out you can buy a tub of barbecue to-go so you can snack at home and enjoy your sandwich on real crusty bread instead of Sunbeam's best buns. I make better banana pudding, but the kids like it. Been there, got the t-shirt.

For the kids: Hot dogs and, chicken strips, and a fine mac and cheese.

Also try: half and full racks of ribs but bring in the fire hose for clean up.

Pay on the way out.

Always check for business hours as many places close for the winter, close for a couple hours in the PM, or can't be found when the fish are biting.

“Great value and best BBQ around town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

You really can't beat this place. A great selection of sauces for dressing your BBQ, although good BBQ is served naked, they have options. But the real winner here is the corn nuggets. Yum!
