The Barbeque

Get to know Currituck from the Locals’ perspective.

Barbeque is kind of a big deal in Currituck. In all of North Carolina, culinary battles are waged over the seasonings and sauces poured over pulled pork, but you’ll only find joy, harmony and lots of flavor at BJ’s Carolina Cafe.

Owner, Operator and head cook Benjamin Beasley is a Currituck native, and comes from a family of barbecue cookers and eaters. He bought the restaurant from his father, and continues to use the tried and true recipes that folks have come to love and crave when they cross that line into Currituck County.

Visitors stop by each year as a traditional part of their vacation, while locals know that when they’re looking for good barbecue, good music and good times they can find it at BJ’s.

Come as a stranger, leave as a local.
