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.

“Perfect meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

On our last night on your vacation, we decided to go out to dinner. When started looking for BBQ places and we found High Cotton. We realized they did take out and it was raining so it was perfect. We placed the order and told them we would pick it up around 6:30. We ordered the family reunion package which was $139.99 and added an additional full rack of ribs for $18.99. There were 14 of us and we had PLENTY of food with leftovers. We knew if we had gone out, there was no way, 14 of us would of stuffed ourselves under $160! The ribs fell off the bone, the brisket was delicious and the pulled pork had great taste! Even the sides were perfect!! We are already making plans to pick this meal up on our way to our house next summer!

“Good BBQ for the price!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Our party of 7 went to High Cotton BBQ on Monday July 7 for dinner. Very accomadating and very fast service. Our ice tea glasses were never emptied. Good ribs, pulled pork & brisket. Didnt care too much for the taste of the BBQ sauce at the table though. I had the ribs and it didn't need the extra sauce..I would go back again!!!!

“Good slaw. BBQ kind of plain. ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

The slaw here was very good. We even went back for a take out pint. I got a pork bbq because I wanted to compare it to another place I had tried. I have to say I'm now loyal to the other place. Service for take out was fast and friendly. I'll get my slaw here and run to the other place for a sandwich.
