My wife thinks I'm crazy, but I love riding my bicycle to Beach Bully for lunch just about every day that we are on vacation at Virginia Beach. That way, I can try just about all the different combination of meats, sides and bbq sauces. Otherwise it would be too difficult to choose only going once.

I have going down to the beach this winter and not too many places are really open year round! I was driving by on my way home and saw a pretty decent crowd at this place! I had no expectations at all when I walked in. I had their combo, North Carolina and Beef Brisket, slaw and hush puppies. Well,... More

When you see local Fire and Police vehicles parked outside, and the policemen and firemen inside enjoying lunch, you should probably give the place a try. Ha ha. The pulled pork was good. Not the best we've had, but it was a decent lunch. You get a sandwich, two sides, and a drink for just over $10. Good portions. Quick... More

We stopped in following a business meeting. We both had Bully BBQ Combos for $10. The pork was very good, but I really loved the brisket. The sides (onion rings and mac and cheese) were good enough but not especially memorable. If I were back in the area, I'd certainly stop by again.

When working outside on a cold rainy day, my co-worker who knows the VA Beach far better than I, suggested BBQ, I agreed without hesitation. Over the years, I’ve learned to follow trucker drivers and the police for the best local eating establishments, and Beach Bully had its share of police cruisers parked outside. This is a good sign. Nothing... More

Keeping things simple... this is just excellent pork or beef BBQ. Beach Bully does not mess around or get too fancy.... they just make great BBQ and simple sides. Sure, people can always argue who makes the "best", but without question, Beach Bully is a must for BBQ in the Hampton Roads area. BBQ done right! Awesome catering too. Any... More

Beach Bully BBQ is the place to stop in Virginia Beach. The food portions are a good size, the food is homemade and it's the best BBQ in Hampton Roads. The service is also exceptional.

Always on the lookout for a great barbeque joint and in particular a good pulled pork or even better, a good Carolina chopped pork sandwich. Stumbled on Beach Bully after attending the auto show today just up the street at the convention center. I had seen reviews of BB before so decided to check it out and was not disappointed.... More

The food was great, the half bbq chicken tasted delicious. The bbq sauce & the AWESOME service & hospitality, were the icing on the cake. I'll DEFINITELY return again!

Our family & friends have been going to the Beach Bully's for years. My favorite is the sliced beef sandwich and hand cut fries but all of their food is good. They also serve cold beer. You may also find them at some of the local festivals and they can cater your function.
