Let your guests enjoy the Southern Hospitality that we bring to our catered events, while you appreciate the convenience of having everything taken care of.

Authentic. Simple. Delicious. High Cotton Barbeque has been well-known on the Outer Banks for over 12 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. Read less

We looked at a number of caterers in the Outer Banks who could provide us a Carolina-style BBQ buffet for our wedding and High Cotton BBQ is by far the best there is. Sherry was so friendly and great to work with, and very responsive to our questions and concerns. She let us customize the menu to provide the exact items we wanted. The price per person was less than any other place we looked at, and the cost included a number of extras that other places charged more for. The staff that worked our event were very friendly and professional, and stayed as long as we needed them, cleaning everything up before they left including the leftovers. But most importantly, the food was delicious! Our guests could not stop talking about how great the food was, and we enjoyed the leftovers for days afterward. I would highly recommend High Cotton BBQ for your Outer Banks wedding!

High Cotton BBQ catered my daughter's wedding reception at Corolla this past week. We had BBQ and the "fixings" for approximately 50 people. High Cotton was prompt, well organized, did a wonderful job of setting up and cleaning up. Last but not least, the food was absolutely delicious. Our guests made several comments on the great food! Thanx High Cotton!

My fiance and I ate here while we were in town visiting venues, and quickly decided that we wanted to use them for our rehearsal dinner across the street at the Hilton Garden Inn. Their food was some of the best BBQ I've ever had, and they immediately provided us detailed information about their catering options when we asked. They even have gluten free options, which is important to us since my mom can only eat gluten free. So far we're very impressed, and can't wait to use them for our rehearsal dinner!

Not only is High Cotton BBQ wonderful to work with, the food is just as amazing! I was a little hesitant to go with a BBQ company that I hadn't tried before, but High Cotton came with great reviews. After speaking with Sherry - who was so incredibly patient with me, since I was traveling for work and not the easiest to access at first, she made sure she secured my date. Sherry answered all my questions, she was always available, and always honest. They were super kind to my mom who called with questions of her own. They are extremely flexible and will make your day perfect. Will called me the day of to confirm everything, and her staff that came to serve were incredible! They are a great company to work with, we had rave reviews on the food the day of our wedding, and people are still talking about how great it was! Also, they do not skimp - you will have a ton of food, the serving sizes are huge (definitely getting your money's worth)! I recommend High Cotton for any event, they definitely contributed to making our already perfect wedding day even more perfect!

We have loved and enjoyed High Cotton for years during our family vacations to the Outer Banks. They were at the top of our list when it came to choosing a caterer for our son's wedding rehearsal dinner. From the moment I reached out to them regarding our event, Sherry was extremely responsive, professional, courteous and flexible. Big Tom and Little Tom, our catering team for the night of our dinner, were outstanding! They were prompt, courteous, respectful, hardworking, friendly...I could go on and on. As always, the food was delicious!! The pulled pork and barbecued chicken were amazing, the sides were delicious...the potato salad was literally the best I've ever had! We ordered several varieties of chess pie for dessert and each was perfectly prepared and yummy. A side note, we had a few vegetarians attending our dinner, so I personally prepared a small meal for them myself. Big Tom politely and tactfully informed me that High Cotton also offers vegetarian options...something to keep in mind for future events. It never crossed my mind that a BBQ restaurant would offer vegetarian options, so I never mentioned it during the planning process, but of course if any would, it would surely be High Cotton!! They are just truly the best and I am so thankful that we chose High Cotton for one of our most important family events!!

We had High Cotton BBQ cater our wedding and the food was delicious. The team that came out was very helpful with the set-up and letting us know about what we ordered. Sherry was very nice and helpful with setting up our menu. The BBQ Brisket, ribs, chicken, and pulled pork are some of the best that I have had. The macaroni and cheese and baked beans are so yummy I recommend doubling your order... they went fast... All our guest commented on how good the dinner was. I recommend the catering service to anyone having an event on OBX.

I wish I could give High Cotton a 10 out of 5 stars!! Sherry and her team at High Cotton are absolutely amazing to work with- they were by far my favorite vendor of our entire wedding. Everyone raved about the food, and the service was THE best. It was made so easy for us- we did the set up only catering. The team was in and out in about 15-20 minutes and everyone could start eating. Also, Sherry is extremely responsive through email, more responsive than any of my other vendors (usually responds in 1 day at the very latest).

I would recommend High Cotton to every single person I know. We had such an amazing experience with them!! Would choose them again and again.

I highly recommend High Cotton BBQ! We had them cater our rehearsal dinner of around 90 people. Working with Will and Sherry was a breeze from the first contact and tasting to the final menu and dinner. Our son, the groom, is a chef so his (and our) palates are quite discriminating. Everyone throughly enjoyed the food! It was so good that a few of our guests asked for, and received, recipes for their amazing BBQ and sides. Don't miss the beef brisket!

We had a wonderful experience with High Cotton BBQ! We are out-of-towners and needed to do everything over email leading up to our big day. Sherry was always responsive, answering any and all questions I had. I felt an immediate connection. Sherry made me feel like her most important client even though I knew very well that she had other weddings going on. We did whole hog, smoked chicken and brisket plus multiple sides. There was a moment when I was obviously ordering too much and Sherry let me know that I probably did not need that extra side. We also bought bottles of their sauce to put in the gift bags for our guests...everyone was an out of towner so we had a lot! Everything was perfect day of...we had rented a house on the beach and had an outdoor reception. Set up was perfect, everyone was thrilled by the whole hog...it was just really fun! Exactly what we wanted. We rented plates and glassware and they were happy to serve on those instead of paper. We had a ton of leftovers (except the mac and cheese of course) and were able to have a full dinner with some of our house guests the last night we were in town. My father even took some pulled pork back to Maryland, froze it and served it at Christmas! If you are looking for authentic NC BBQ and a fun and exciting way to feed your guests, I highly recommend going with High Cotton. Wonderful people! One of the best decisions we made!

The day after our wedding was my husbands birthday which we had it catered from High Cotton- let me tell you everything was beyond our expectations! We will definitely be returning customers. Everyone was so helpful and extremely friendly. Food was suppose to be for 60 guests lets just say we had no food left over since it was that good. And cost wise was very reasonable! I highly recommend them!
