If you are in the area this is a must try for lunch. They have one of thee best bbq sandwiches around. It is also massive. You will crave it later on.

After recently moving to Hampton this place was recommended to me by my Fios guy...he said it's the only place he goes to and I see why! First visit I got the pulled pork sandwich, second visit I got the pork and chicken....still can't decide which is better...the coleslaw and potatoe salad are both GREAT! Next visit food choices will... More

My son convinced me of Wilkes' BBQ being the best quality since Bill's BBQ closed. I was not disappointed! In fact, I ordered pounds of it for my outdoor wedding reception. Strictly takeout facility- and it doesn't look like much on the outside. But don't judge a book by its cover!

Chopped BBQ is very good as are the sides such as the potato salad. BBQ is sold by the pound and very reasonably priced. Unfortunately their is no eat in facilities, just takeaway.

After hearing a couple trusted foodies speak on "The best hole in the wall BBQ place in Hampton". I finally had to give it a try for myself. Let me tell you they were 100% correct. This place is what BBQ is all about. The ribs speak for themselves, but Wilkes is known for the Pulled Pork Sandwich. Be aware,... More

This review is for the Victoria Blvd. location only!!! The first time we visited Wilkes at 3700 Victoria Blvd., Hampton, VA 23669, was excellent. There was a young man and woman working and they were so friendly and helpful. There were a few other patrons there and we had the best time talking to them about the food and what... More

My fiancee loves this place! Every time she comes here is quick and friendly customer service and the order is made to perfection every time. The price in my opinion is a little to high for one sandwich but hey, the taste makes up for it...overall a great place to check out

I have been going to Wilkes for years the barbecue is really great. When I want barbecue in this area this family owned business is the first place that comes to mind. The guys are friendly considering the heat that they have to work in. The area not so good its pretty small and if you blink you may miss... More

If you need a quick bbq sandwich this is the place. Minced bbq with a little smokey taste. They also serve up ribs, I have not tried them yet, stuck on the sandwich.

I grew up in Hampton and I used to live right down the street from Wilkes.' Every time I go home to visit, we get Wilkes. The pulled-pork BBQ is delicious - nice spice, Carolina-style shredded pork. My parents will get a rib dinner w/ potato salad and coleslaw, and they're always more than satisfied. Carry-out only, but you can... More
