My wife craved BBQ and said we had to go to Jake's. The Memphis Style Ribs Were some of the best ribs I've ever had. The sauce was almost as good but not quite perfect. The pulled pork was very good Baby back ribs were good The BBQ nachos are over-rated. They sound good but don't deliver The... read more

We stumbled across Jake's Smokehouse BBQ during our last visit camping at VA Beach...what a GREAT find! We enjoyed every bite of our meal, we got the meal for 2 which gives you great samples of many things they have to offer, the BBQ chicken, brisket, pulled pork and ribs along with the amazing sides of cole slaw, bakes beans...

Ribs-good, pulled bbq chicken and pulled pork- both excellent. Good portion sizes for specials. Sides were just okay, except fries- fresh cut & yummy.

Burgers! Wow! The All American Burger. Cooked fresh every time. French fries are peeled and made on site. Always very attentive wait staff. Very pleasant dining experience.

The food is Excellent! The ribs are so tender that the meat falls off the bone. The baked beans are very good. You definitely get what you pay for. A lot of food at a good price. You can take your whole family and not break the bank.

Discovered Jake's by chance several years ago. Food is excellent, wait staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable. Great place to take the family. They have a guy on Friday nights who makes balloon animals for the little ones.

Anytime we go on vacation and we are near VA Beach we HAVE to stop in here! The smoke smell when you walk gets your mouth watering and your stomach growling! I highly recommend the corn nuggets for an appetizer, sweet and delicious little corn goodness! We always order the dinner for 2 and you get tons of food!!! Comes... More

Have been several times over the past years. Always has great BBQ and this time tried the wings (which I was pleasantly surprised). I ordered the 2 meat platter (pulled BBQ and (6) wings). Beans are always good and usually the fries (fresh cut). But the fries were a little limp and undercooked this time. Service was good but Virginia... More

This is our second time back to Virginia Beach and we had to make another stop into Jakes Smokehouse BBQ. The food is excellent with tasty fall off the bone ribs as well as a great selection of tender smoked meats including Brisket and Pulled Pork. For appetizers, we had the Fried Pickles and Sweet Fried Corn Nuggets. Loved them... More
