We were in the mood for good BBQ, and happened to be speaking in front of the guys running the Go Kart/Mini-golf place, and they recommended we give Pigman's a try - 'it's not fancy, but good grub and good folk' Sure enough, they were...More

Went here for dinner expecting something good. What a disappointment. My wife and I shared the ribs and proceeded to spend the night hugging the commode throwing up and having stomach cramps. Not good value for money and apparently straight off the Cisco truck with...More

Very low value for you money. The chicken was way overcooked and the prices were high! I was expected to cut through a half chicken with plastic silverware.

Walked in to pick up some BBQ to add to our meal of other leftovers for our last night in the OBX. The Pork BBQ had too much vinegar for our taste. We've eaten at many other restaurants that offer Carolina BBQ. I've even made...More

I ordered a pulled pork sandwich but was so disappointed in the BBQ Sauce. Thought they made their own but this tasted like Kraft out of the bottle. I didn't care for the Cole slaw as it had a funny taste. Won't go Back there...More

We had read such wonderful reviews about this restaurant and wanted to try it while in town. The food was "ok", nothing to write home about or need to return for. Served on regular grocery store buns, disposable eatery, and canned/bottled beverages, yet priced as...More

We especially like the Brunswick stew here - it is nice and spicy hot. The pork barbeque and hushpuppies are good, too. Staff is great!

After a long day of driving and then exploring the area, we decided on a kick-back restaurant where we could just relax. This was the place! Fall-off-the-bones ribs and yummy hushpuppies quickly satisfied our hunger. Friendly service and rustic atmosphere added to our delight.

We generally stop here for lunch when we travel to the Outer Banks. The pulled pork sandwiches are consistently tasty. The staff is friendly; you order at the counter and they bring your meals to you.

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”.
