Delicious and reasonably priced

This is a stand along restaurant with its own parking lot, 4 blocks from Atlantic Ave. We ordered fried chicken, beef brisket sandwich and (queen) baby back ribs, with fries and potato salad. Fried chicken takes 20 minutes to make and they let us know when we placed the order. The portion... read more

Overall, this was a welcome find. It was very good North Carolina BBQ ready quickly. It is off the beaten path, but plenty of parking. It seemed great for families and frequented by many.

This place is a pretty good walk from the oceanfront considering how many other restaurants are closer, but we'd probably go back. You won't find it in the coupon booklet. But the food is good, and the prices are reasonable. And when we went on a Monday evening for dinner, there was 1 other person there!

We ordered the medium meat and cheese tray and 5 lbs of shrimp salad for 35 family who were in town from the Midwest, Pennsylvania and northern VA for a reunion/wedding. The meats and cheeses were fresh and delicious, and the shrimp salad was a crowd favorite! Not too much mayo or crazy seasonings, and everyone from kids to seniors... More

Ended up being quite a hike from our hotel at 33rd, but worth the walk. Brisket was excellent. Daughter had the half fried chicken and really liked it. Lots of food. Also, a nice quick meal.

Beach Bully is a couple blocks away from the beach. The barbecue is really good. Their sauce is their own and is good. Their sides are homemade. The prices are average.

We stopped there for lunch on Friday. Pleasant service, good prices, great hush puppies and coleslaw! The Carolina pulled pork was good. I will be back!
