Good local smokehouse

Went here for lunch at the weekend and was greeted with a mouthwatering smokey BBQ smell! The ribs were delicious as were the baked beans! I'd say if you're looking for a casual BBQ meal you can't go wrong here.

Jake’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que was recommended by a friend for lunch. Unfortunately, I was under impressed with the quality of food and service. I ordered the Sliced Beef Brisket Lunch Special with Hush Puppies and Fried Okra. I thought the brisket was ok, but everything was under seasoned. The prices were reasonable, but I really wished the quality was better. My... More

We returned to Virginia Beach and Jake's again this month - this time with our two children. Out of all the places that we have been stationed from FL to NY, we have yet to find a place that can match Jake's. We visited on a Friday night and much to my children's delight there was a magician who made... More

Great service, clean and inviting!! Try the brisket for a smoky, savory treat!! Pulled pork is wonderful too!! Early bird specials are an excellent value. We come here everytime we visit the area.

Savr yourself the time and get something else. This was our second time eating here and honestly I expected much more. It took 10 minutes for us to get greeted and another 7 before we got drinks. (Our appetizer came out before the drinks did!) Their pulled chicken was cold and drowning in sauce and their mac and cheese is... More

Came here on a Sunday afternoon after pumpkin patch trip down in Pungo based on the great reviews. Waitress was not interested in serving us, even though only 2 other tables were occupied. Never came back to refill waters or tea. Never volunteered any info about menu or specials. The food was edible, barely. I had the BBQ chicken salad.... More

My husband and I love BBQ and we never get enough living in upstate NY. Whenever we go on vacation especially somewhere in the south we look up BBQ restaurants in the area. Picking up some VB travel guides I read about a local place "Jakes Smokehouse" which I decided would be good to try. Thanks also to some trip... More

When in our local hometown, we have our favorite place for BBQ, and now we have found our favorite when in Va Beach! The wife picked this place based on the restaurant directory in the hotel - no looking at reviews 1st, no recommendation from others. Just went because it looked good in the directory and it was not a... More

Such a great place for smoked pulled pork! This is a real local hang out,and that tells you something. Comfortable place to hang out and enjoy good local food. The sauces are very good, and the wait staff is friendly.

My family and I have lived in Virginia Beach for 10 years. We love going to Jake's Smokehouse (or as my 5 year old calls it, Jake's smoke castle). The pulled pork is just right and we love the range of sauces. My 12 year old licks the sweet sauce off his plate. My wife always gets the fried pickles.... More
