Yum. First off, our waiter ( a local teacher) was super friendly. Flounder sandwich special was SO good. My choice of side was Mac and cheese- also SO good. Pulled pork sandwich and fried chicken sandwich with yummy coleslaw. Table next to us kept ordering hush puppies- I was too full but would order that next time. This was our first meal in Corolla after a long trip. Thanks for making it such a welcoming start.

We were looking for an open eatery in the off season and we weren't disappointed with this find. Staff was friendly, service was fast. It keeps napkins on the tables which is much appreciated at a BBQ place. We tried the pulled BBQ chicken and the chicken sandwich which were both great. Their fries were delicious but they also offer tater tots which was a nice change. It was so good that my husband wanted to eat there again before we left the area. I would highly recommend this place.

Stopped in for lunch in the off season. This is just your average BBQ spot in a shopping center. BBQ had good flavor and was moist with all the typical sauces. It was average but nothing special.

I know that barbeque is casual, but this was pathetic. Eating area is just a "dressed up" waiting room for pickup. Ribs were terrible: dry and pathetically little sauce. The cole slaw was terrible (and I've eaten a lot of different styles). (Spoiled? not sure, but both servings of both of us werepathetic). Not cheap for the mediocrity. So-o-o disappointing, because mouth w atering for good ribs. Instead, recommend buying ribs in Nags Head and heat up with microwave if you have access.

Phillip, this is disappointing to say the least. Especially considering we had great reviews just 3 days earlier. I would like to discuss this with you further. Please email me directly at:
catering@sooeysbbq.com.

As you can see from all our reviews, we are known for our delicious ribs and slaw! I would like the opportunity to address this with you. Thank you for your feedback.

Finding an open restaurant during the off season in Corolla, NC can be challenging. We found Sooey's and it was the best. We placed an order for pickup and were unsure how much we actually needed. Our server worked with us over the phone, answered all our questions about the types of bbq they offered and the quantities needed to feed 5 people. In the time it took us to drive there (about 15 minutes) they had everything ready to go--hot, fresh and ready to eat. Most importantly--EVERYTHING WAS GREAT! From the pulled pork to the brisket to the chicken--it was all wonderful. They also have the best hush puppies we've ever tasted. Definitely would eat here again--either dine in or take out. Thanks so much for a great meal.
