Description: Authentic. Simple. Delicious. High Cotton Barbeque has been well-known on the Outer Banks for over 10 years for their Eastern North Carolina Style Barbeque, Famous Fried or Slow Smoked Juicy Chicken, Melt in Your Mouth Ribs and Texas-style Beef Brisket. As Tarheel natives we want to share the flavors and aromas unique to Eastern North Carolina Barbeque. Consistent temperatures and long hours of smoking with hickory coals produce the characteristic pink coloring and sweet outside brown meat of our famous pork barbeque. Combined with our traditional side dishes and a glass of sweet tea and you're in High Cotton, Outer Banks Barbeque at its very best.

We recently ordered take out from High Cotton during our stay at the Outer Banks. The food was really solid. My wife and I both ordered a combination plate with a huge portion of pork barbeque and the what I think was called Mike's special chicken. Both were very good. The baked beans were also very good. I would pass on the cole slaw and order another one of their sides as it was quite forgettable.

There were probably 25 people waiting outside for a table so we opted to do a take out order. Both ordered the brisket platter and it was simply amazing. Flavor was perfection on a plate ! The brisket portion was enormous and actually had lunch the next day with the left overs.
Sides were very tasty as well.
100% recommend.

This was highly recommended by the hotel staff. I suppose since there is limited options of BBQ in this area this joint is popular. Brisket is good. Sides are average.

For the last seven years, I have been in charge of our church men's retreat in Corolla, NC, which has included a great catered dinner on Saturday night from High Cotton Barbecue. We get the fried chicken, pulled pork barbecue, slaw, baked beans, cornbread and salad with regular and sweet tea. The food is terrific and the service is the same. Each year the guys tell me to make sure we do the same thing next year. You can't beat perfection.
