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.

Having seafood for a while while in the OBX, we decided on Barbecue for a change up. Easily found , Across the street from the Hilton Garden Inn

We decided on-the St. Louis Ribs, Pulled Pork, Fried Chicken and Brisket. You also get 2 sides

I think our group enjoyed their meals. The meals were ample and relatively reasonable for dinner

We had numerous people helping us and the ambiance was casual. Good place for big
groups and families to enjoy an affordable meal

The sides could use some additional seasoning and could be a bit warmer.

High Cotton was in a very convenient location as it is across the street from the Hilton where we stayed. We had 6 people in our party for dinner and we all enjoyed our meal. Two people in our party had the brisket which was cooked just right and came with a good sauce. The big hit was the fried chicken, I heard one comment (this is the best fried chicken I have ever had). One couple had the pulled pork and they enjoyed it as well. The meals all came with very good side dishes such as macaroni and cheese and smoked cabbage with bacon and coleslaw and potato salad. We had a great server, she was friendly and very efficient.

High Cotton is your basic barbecue joint. No frills, but good food at a decent price. Good for big groups.
