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.

We were pleased with the size of the portions, what was kinda weird was how you order. Walking in we thought that we would be greeted by a waitstaff person, only to figure out that we had to walk into the restaurant and order as if it were a fast food restaurant. No matter, the food was good.

Better than average beef brisket. It was slightly sweet, smoky, and very tender. I'm not a huge fan of the pulled pork - the vinegar flavor that they cooked it with was a little too much for me. It wasn't overpowering, but it wasn't subtle either. With my 2 meats, I ordered Cole slaw and hush puppies. The coleslaw was... More

Came here expecting to get a quick bite to eat. The food was fantastic and the prices were good too. There was a very nice variety of choices on the menu including combo meals in case you couldn't decide what kind of BBQ you wanted. Our party had ribs, minced bbq, bbq chicken, and the tuna. The sides are nothing... More

At the Beach Bully, you order you food at the counter and they bring it out to you. The staff were courteous and friendly, but I was not at all impressed with the food. My beef sandwich was incredibly dry - even BBQ sauce could not cover up the dryness. I had hushpuppies which were nothing special - just tasted... More

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 was generous. The price was reasonable. Most importantly,... More
