We stopped here on our way from the airport in VA to the outer banks and despite some poor reviews were VERY happy with our meals! Staff was super friendly and all the food was delicious! We will definitely come back!

Today my family went to Great Bridge BBQ based on a previous positive experience. We arrived at 11:00 am and discovered that they were not open until 11:30. So our family with ten members present decided to wait for the restaurant to open. The staff, which we could clearly see inside, we're all teenagers, who occupied their time by eating,... More

Tried my best to go a 4 but can't. Food is very good but overpriced. Have stopped there 3 times now and common theme is slow service and small portions. $22.00 for a rack of ribs that got thrown on the grill and their great flavor drowned in BBQ sauce ain't going to cut it. I like the local feel... More

After some early-season yard work, we decided on a late-lunch, but were too tired to make our own. I have driven by Great Bridge BBQ several times, but it is not along any route I regularly travel. Making the trip will most likely be deliberate and so it was on this day. The reviews were good and I try to... More

I would like to personally thank Great Bridge BBQ for hosting our family reunion. I am from Georgia and did not live in Virginia. I went on several sights to find a restaurant that would host our family reunion. Dave the owner who was wonderful and Robert who helped on the event where great. The food was excellent especially the... More

Great Bridge BBQ does BBQ right. Not much to say other than they really make good BBQ - pork or beef. Not much for atmosphere, but it's simple and to the point for an old joint. Better just to take out.

I had the jumbo BBQ sandwich and added the house vinegar sauce with a side of cole slaw and baked beans. The sandwich was great. The cole slaw was about three bites worth and the same for the beans. Both had good flavor. My biggest complaint is the smell of the grease. It felt and smelled like it was in... More

Found this restaurant through restaurant.com voucher. Easy to find, great parking. Greeted promptly upon entering the door. Varied menu of typical BBQ restaurants. We had the Pig in a Puppy, which is pork chopped BBQ inside of a huge hushpuppy topped with cole slaw and served with side of your choice. We also had the Beef brisket dinner with BBQ... More

We eat here frequently because the food is great, and the family atmosphere can't be beat. When you walk in the door the owner greets you like you are his next door neighbor. He is always glad to see you (even when he is super busy cooking) and makes you feel right at home. We have tried about everything on... More
