Came in the night a Tropical storm was passing north of the Outer Banks. Ordered a Full rack of ribs for $23 with two sides and hush puppies -- a tremendous value, and the ribs were rich with smokey meat with a terrific bark, a modest glaze of St Louis style sauce. Very meaty ribs! Carolina sauce also on the table. Collards were super tender and properly trimmed without their tough ribs, nicely vinegar-ed and slightly peppery. Mac and cheese was spot-on creamy its pasta still had some tooth, not mushy. The combo platter of pulled pork, brisket and ribs was also a bargain ( I recall under $20) also two sides, was generous portion, moist brisket, very savory pork and the same delicious ribs. Two dollar drafts. This is a beach hangout with a very casual vibe, a lot of carryout, a few inside and several outside tables - very friendly staff, but its the food that carries the day.
"Best BBQ Around"
June 2018 - Tracey From Washington, D.C.
Every time we are in the Outer Banks we stop here at least once and this year it was our first stop, even before we checked into our condo. The BBQ is amazing and the brisket is even better. Our waitress was super friendly and the service was fast. The food never disappoints. Make sure to get an order of cornbread as it is so moist and sweet.
"Don’t Miss if You Like BBQ"

We are traveling with my elderly mother. She is from North Carolina originally but doesn’t care for fish or seafood. We had her pick dinner option and Sooeys was her pick. We are from Kansas City, MO so we know excellent BBQ. We read the reviews and opted for the fried chicken and brisket meal. Oh wow. Brisket fork tender very delicious and flavorful. They had a couple options on the sauce on the table we chose the more KC style tomato based. A little sweet a little spicy a little smoky. Delish. Greens are awesome. Coleslaw is awesome. And fried chicken is delicious as well. Great pick granny!
"I Will Be Back!"
May 2018 - Tom from Richmond, VA
Stopped in for lunch after tiring of all the steamed seafood this week and we were not disappointed. Sat at the bar and ordered brisket sandwich (wife) and platter (me). The goods came out fast and were great. Being someone who loves BBQ, I can honestly say this was as good as any brisket I have had. Good portions and well trimmed and cooked to perfection, I would recommend to all. The added benefit was the personality of the girl at the bar. She was awesome and showed how much she loves her job and serving. Trust me - I will be back anytime I am in the OBX.

This place is amazing!! There are plenty of BBQ places in the outer banks, and we’ve tried them all, but this one is the absolute best!! Do not bother with the others. This is the place to go!! Yummy brisket, pork bbq sandwich, hush puppies to die for...there is nothing bad here.
"Brisket was Phenomenal"

This little colorful BBQ spot was great! Smelled like heaven when I walked in. Brisket was phenomenal along w/their hush puppies & mac n cheese. Will be going back to try more. Staff was also great.
