it seems a bit pricey to me. I can get as good (although not cooked on sight) at another Currituck location; and it is 1/2 price on Wednesday's including your sweet tea. If you're local, you know the place.

We arrived just before a rush of people showed up and sat and watched as they efficiently worked right through the crowd . None of us were especially impressed with anything other than the peach cobbler . On our table were burnt ends , which were especially fatty and not all that great , ribs , which were ok but...

Have been a fan of Currituck BBQ for years! Food is as delicious as what I remember - what I consider plate licking good! Never had a bad meal here. Brisket is the best & the slaw is like what grandma used to make. Stop in and treat yourself!!!

I love this BBQ because I'm not a fan of NC sauce and you have your choice of 6 sauces. The sides are always good. They sell barbecued chicken, rotisserie chicken, brisket, and ribs, but I stick with the pulled pork because it is always good. If you like fried okra GET IT! My husband loves the potato salad.

The pulled chicken bbq sandwich absolutely delicious--and the french fries?!?! Crazy good!! Quick service, very well priced, nice outdoor dining on large, covered patio. Well worth the stop!

Was looking forward to eating here. We're locals. Did not care for the barbecue. The sauce was not what I consider NC barbecue sauce. It was mostly vinegar. This needed more ingredients to make it better. Thought the barbecue chicken would have been grilled with the barbecue sauce basted, but it was just put on the chicken when served. I... More

We were on our way to OBX, saw this place, and turned around. You stand in line until you get to the chalkboard with menu items and then order. The young lady taking our order was very pleasant. I ordered the pork sandwich platter without the bun. I had slaw and fried okra with it, and the portions were just... More

Sandwiches and sides. Yup, don't waste you choices on coleslaw as the dressing is tasteless. DO revisit your childhood with the Mac n cheese. I hogged(yup it's intended) my fried okra and pork on a bun. My better 1/2 said he prefers Texas brisket in slices. This was so tender it was actually stringy. Thought the sandwich combo was a...

Looked good from the road but average food. Lack luster ribs pork needed a lot of extra sauce. Cole slaw had zero flavor, and it was not cheap to eat there.
