Glad to have found this great Barb-Q place. We had fried chicken and pulled pork. Both were great! Loved the hush-puppies too. Good service, reasonably priced, very clean and food was awesome. Looking forward to next time.

We stopped in for lunch on a recommendation and were not impressed. Good portion sizes but the food wasn't great. Fries were burnt, Cole slaw was bland & burger tasted like it came from a park snack hut. The ribs were good-but not very tender. The NC pork was tender and the brisket had a funny flavor. Not the worst... More

I have lived in North Carolina for over 20 years, spending time on both eastern and western ends of the state. We eat barbecue, ribs, etc. on a regular basis so I feel comfortable saying Beach Bully has some of the best pork ribs I've ever eaten. I am originally from VA Beach and have been pleasantly surprised that Beach... More

My husband and I always try to find at least one new restaurant while on vacation. Someone recommended this place. It is simply awesome!. It is very casual and off the resort strip. Walk up to counter and place your order.. they bring it to your table. I had a Roast beef sandwich that was huge, moist and juicy. Think... More

I LOVE Beach Bully! The barbeque is positively scrumptious - huge portions, tender and juicy. Always a highlight of my trips to Virginia Beach.

Last evening, on the recommendation from my friend's co-worker, we ate at Beach Bully. We got there 28 minutes before they were scheduled to close but was assured we had time to eat and well past 8 pm they were still taking orders. I had the Bully size BBQ with potato salad and bully beans which was really good. The... More

Decided to go off the boardwalk for a meal and ventured to Beach Bully's. My husband and enjoyed the meals we each got. The fried chicken was made when you ordered so it came out piping hot and fresh. The BBQ was great and tasty. We both had leftovers for the next day.

If you come here for BBQ it is what I consider average. There is nothing special to rate it higher. I came once the BBQ was pretty good, on another trip it was dry. It seems to be hit and miss on the BBQ.
