Review Guidelines
Basic Review Guidelines:

Your review should focus on specific aspects of the business you are reviewing. Do not simply state you liked or disliked the business - be specific.

The best reviews include not only whether you liked or disliked a business' products or service, but also why.


Do not mention competing company names in your reviews. Focus on the company you are reviewing, and if you wish, leave a review about the other companies on their directory listings.

Do not comment on other reviews - respect their position and write your own, but do not argue with others.

Do not use profanity or post spiteful remarks.

Do not write a review that is less than 50 words in length. The goal of a review is to share your experiences with a particular company - very short reviews do not accomplish this.

Do not post phone numbers, email addresses or URLs.

Do not post inflammatory reviews - stop and put yourself in the shoes of the owner of the business you are posting about.

Do not post many reviews about one business. Doing this will cause all of your reviews to be deleted.

Remember, you are responsible for your words.

BBQ is just so-so. Small, cramped and hot if you are eating there. Get it to take out.
I have had (and made) much better smoked BBQ.

Waste of Time and Money
By Narf on 4/22/2008
I made the mistake of getting my BBQ here at the Nags Head location last year on my yearly trip to The Banks. I always go to another place 20 miles North...but decided to try Sooey's...what a mistake! HORRIBLE! The staff was rudely speaking in Russian, pointing at me, and laughing! The place was smaller than a deer tick on a coon hound! I got my food, paid way too much, took it home and we ended up throwing it in the garbage. The ribs were dried out completely. The sauce was gross. The chicken was like eating sticks. This was a total waste of time and money. It goes to show that sometimes you have to stick to the best...and this was not it!

We'll be making a return trip
By Mike on 8/28/2007
We stopped by the Nags Head location (right next to Kitty Hawk Kites) and we thought it was really good. We had the pork bbq sandwiches, and the sides were really good. I didn't think the prices were that bad for pretty good food. I've paid more for food that wasn't nearly this good. The service was quick too. The only negatives were that the condiment containers on the table didn't seem very clean. That's why I gave it a lower ambience rating. The building could use some fixing up too. From the pictures shown on this website the other buildings seem to be in better shape.

Could do better
By JMAC on 8/13/2007
Went to the Frisco location. I got the beef brisket sandwich and more than half the meat was fat. Sides (baked beans and fries) were very good. Drink cups much to small for the price. Need to get their act together and could be a good restaurant.

Not all it's cracked up to be
By TK on 8/11/2007
Don't know if we hit the Corolla site on a bad night or what, but the pork platter had no flavor whatsoever and my wife's crabcake barely had any crab meat in it at all. Not on my list for a return visit when we come back to the island.

3 Little PIGS and tiny sides too!
By Diana on 5/3/2007
We ordered the ''3 Pigs'' meal, which says it serves 10 people. The amount of meat may serve that many, but we only got 3 pints of sides and had to supplement the meal with other foods for our families of 5 adults and 5 children! Pork BBQ was good but definitely cost too much for the amount we got. Would not order again!
