Whenever I go to Virginia Beach, this is one of the places that I make sure to visit. My favorite is the fried chicken. The barbecue is delicious too. They are very accommodating and aim to please their customers. This restaurant is just a little off the beaten path, but still within walking distance from Atlantic Ave. So, get a... More

This was my first time here. And also my last. My friend and I placed 2 separate orders- but at the same time. His food came out a good 15 minutes after mine. I ordered the pulled pork and the brisket. The pulled pork was pretty good, the pasta salad was also good. The brisket was horrible. I'm not sure... More

The food smelled delicious when we walked in the door! It smelled like a true smoke house but the front door is where it ended. We ordered pork ribs and barbequed chicken. Neither one of us enjoyed our meals. The ribs were overcooked, dry, and had no smoke flavor, they should have called it pork jerky. Chicken was raw -... More

The ribs were great as was the potato salad. Huge slab of ribs. House BBQ sauce was great - not too sweet, not to vinegary with a subtle spicyness. The staff was genuinely friendly and smiles! Definitely worth the 4 block walk from hotel row.

Good bbq and good sauces. Fast and friendly. Good fries. They have catering available too. I would definitely eat here more often if I lived close enough.

If you are from the south or enjoy bbq don't go! Super disappointment meat is very dry and too expensive. Sauce too vinegary and all around not good don't waste your money

We chose this restaurant because everyone wanted good barbecue and it was just a short walk from the hotel we were staying at in Virginia Beach. Definitely a great choice! My daughter said it was the best fried chicken she ever had! The chicken takes a while but was worth the wait ...the rest of the family had ribs, fish,... More

We had lunch at Beach Bully BBQ. Our kids split a plate of the fried chicken. It is hand battered before they throw it in the deep fryer so it takes about 15-20 minutes to cook but it is WORTH THE WAIT. My wife had the BBQ chicken, which she absolutely loved and I had the Beef Brisket. I am... More
