Mustang Festival Saturday Food: Oyster Roast

On Saturday from 2 to 5 P.M. you can partake in an authentic North Carolina Style Oyster Roast. You won’t see something like this at any seafood chain. Every thing is Ocean to Table fresh. On top of that everything is made fresh. You can taste this with every bite. Fresh seafood prepared on the spot is something that cannot be manufactured, processed, or faked. Come taste for yourself.

Sunday Mustang Festival BBQ Cookoff

Now it is time for the big game. No I do not mean your favorite NFL time doing battle on the gridiron. I mean the best bbq restaurants doing battle at the Mustang Festival. In the South, in North Carolina, barbecue is a big deal. Barbeque recipes go back for generations. You can even read how the founding Father’s, yes even them, smoked meats and enjoyed bbq.

All across the nation you will find different recipes and styles in and out of regions throughout the United States. But the first bbq recipes started here. Traditional bbq using vinegar, seasonings and fresh smoked shredded pork, set the stage for all bbq creations thereof. So what can be more intense than the best restaurants of Corolla and the Outer Banks facing off in bbq glory.

A power packed grouping of local restaurants will be bringing their best to fire up the taste buds of the crowd with incredible flavor. The restaurants that will be competing are:

  • Formula 5
  • Fat Crabs Rib Company
  • Sooeys BBQ Duck, NC
  • Agave Roja
