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

Harder to find anywhere to eat in Corolla, NC this time of year-so glad we tried Sooey's! We ordered a sampler platter and one additional side item! My husband and I shared it and we still took home some ribs! All of the meat was SO good! Wow! Oh, and this southern girl was impressed that the collards were "real"... More

Probably should have known better than to get the crabcake sandwich at a BBQ joint! It wasn't bad, just had better elsewhere. Others in our party had the pulled pork and pulled chicken, again OK.

The brisket here is very tasty and we enjoyed it. Part of the order included a side of mashed potatoes which were obviously instant and not fresh which was very disappointing, as was the thick and bland. They could really knock it out of the park with fresh sides to go with the amazing meats

Went here the Saturday we arrived in Corolla from Massachusetts looking for BBQ when our first choice was closed and even though there were some bad reviews it was next to the grocery so thought we would get a quick meal and go shopping. It was one of the worst meals I have ever had and that was after waiting... More

Eight of us went here for dinner on our last night at the Outer Banks. We all had appetizers and sandwiches, and everyone pretty much got a different sandwich. I got the Beef Brisket as the waitress said it melted in your mouth. Mine sandwich had too many pieces with fat and so I did not enjoy it. The onion... More

We vacation in the Outer Banks every year and on the last night there we always order out so we don't have to worry about cleaning up after dinner. This year we decided to try Sooey's. We called in our order of a 24 piece chicken, 4 orders of mashed potato's and gravy, collard greens, and mac and cheese. After... More

Went to another local restaurant with a party of eight, but would have had a two-hour wait on a Sunday night. So we went to Sooey's instead. First, the positives: 1. Brisket, two of our group had it and declared it delicious. 2. Grilled chicken sandwich, nothing really special but good. Now the negatives: 1. Ribs, three of us had... More
