The best roast beef sandwich in the world

Beach Bully -- the highlight of our vacation. Roast beef, brisket, carved to order, piled high. Yummy hushpuppies. Friendly, natural, attentive, interested staff.

Needed a good overall place for our family to eat while at the beach and this hit the spot. We had seafood earlier in the day and bbq was a great alternative. Had rack of ribs with hush puppies and Brunswick stew. All great. You walk up and order so no tip to deal with. Not many people when we... More

Your trip to Virginia Beach will not be complete until you have a meal at The Beach Bully BBQ Restaurant. We were in town for fives days and ate there 4. The food is excellent and moderately priced. Friendly and extremely honest personnel. I had unknowingly dropped some cashier at the register after ordering. After being seated for a couple... More

Although not quite Carolina BBQ, it is very close. There is a little bit of tomato in the sauce... but just a little. It is tangy , lean and tasty. The Baked Beans are the best I have ever had anywhere. They put some of the pork BBQ in with the beans. Good service by Michelle and the crew. Always... More

Stopped in on a recommendation and boy was I glad I did. Not your typical restaurant, as you seat yourself and order at the counter, but who cares. The food is worth it, and very affordable. The menu has a decent amount of options and the food is down right delicious! If ever in the area again I will sure... More

There are many different kinds of BBQ to be found while traveling across the US, and even in NC. I live in the sand hills of NC and have come to love that Eastern NC BBQ. Beach Bully has some of the best I have found outside of NC. The pulled pork was pulled to small pieces then moderately chopped.... More

The ribs were really lip smackin', the french fries and sides were all delicous. Friendly folks, excellent service and I feel it was a good value for the money. It's one of our 'go to' places in VA Beach!!

I consider myself a BBQ connoisseur so I feel that I know good BBQ. I had a short rack of baby back ribs. They were very good. I would go back. However, my wife had the BBQ chicken and it was very dry. French fries were great and so was the coleslaw.

Beach Bully is a local favorite for good reason! They have excellent food, excellent service, excellent staff, and excellent value! I've sampled nearly the entire menu and have never had anything that wasn't delicous. When my family visits from Buffalo Beach Bully is a must visit each and every time!
