One of our favorite meals during our annual visit to the Outer Banks is Sooey's Fried Chicken and Mac and Cheese.....chicken is awesome cold the next day! Their southern fried chicken is nice and crispy and even better when you add a touch of hot sauce! The pieces are meaty. The mac and cheese is really good as well. The... More

Good BBQ place. Wasn't too busy at all. Good portion. I ordered mac and cheese and baked beans as go-alongs. Food is warm. Sauces were good. Price is okay I guess to be in a beach resort but would be a little pricey if this is located in my hometown. Overall, it's favorable.

Ok folks, the only thing I recommend here is the BBQ. It's traditional NC vinegar base BBQ. There are different styles of sauce on the tables. We love the BBQ and have it every time we visit the outer banks. My recommendation is to order take out sandwiches with the sauce you like (ours is the sweet BBQ) and then... More

Just got into Corolla, NC for a long weekend and our first meal was at Sooey's BBQ. We chose it because it had good reviews and it was close to where we were staying. We got there about an hour before closing and received great service. We seemed to order everything in our party of 6! I personally had a... More

My wife and I had fish sandwiches and they were OK. Her cold slaw was awful . . . scary tasting to use her words. My French fries were not fresh and barely warm. I think they might have been a day old. We were the only ones there at 6:30pm which should have been a clue. Never again! Stay... More

While I agree with some reviews that the pork ribs are a little on the fatty side, they weren't so bad that it wasn't worth it. We took a chance on this rib shack knowing some reviews aren't so hot, but we enjoyed our meal. Both myself and my 10yo grandson had the half rack ribs, sides of french fries,... More

Oh my god! Ribs were just super! Even my son-in-law, who had seafood medley, was happy. We took extended family and filled half the restaurant, which is in the backside of a strip mall and only has about 8 tables (I'm guessing they do a lot of takeout) and we all loved it. Ribs chock full of meat. If we're... More

We picked up pulled pork for a student group. It was delicious. Very convenient. We'd happily use them again.

Had the pulled pork - meat had "off" taste, no smoke flavor & vinegar sauce was not up to NC standards
