We have been by this restaurant many times and have never gone in until looking it up on TA. This was a weekday visit in the late afternoon. To begin with the huge menu board over the order counter was a bit overwhelming to new comers, this could have stressed us out if there was a line of customers behind... More

Friendly staff, good atmosphere. Think famous Dave's. Excellent brisket, onion rings, bbq sauce, and beans. Good fries and pork. Pulled chicken was a little mushy, and coleslaw lacking flavor, but overall I would go again!

Staying at the Double Tree, we saw the Beach Bully was only a short drive. When we arrived at 11:40 on a Saturday in February, the small parking lot was almost full - a good sign! You walk in and see that you place your order and then seat yourself. They have a wide selection of offerings, but since it... More

Couldn't taste the brisket in all the sauce, portions are small for the price and no BBQ option on the kids menu. I had to order off the adult menu and pay full price for ribs for my kid. Not a real restaurant either- you order at the counter and they bring your food to your table. No napkins at... More

Barbecue pork and beef were good as well as chicken, platters available as well as sandwiches, reasonable prices, nothing fancy as we used plastic silverware

Bullys was a great lunch choice. Food was great and served quickly. We had a variety of menu choices from beef and pulled pork to beans and hush puppies. All good. We'll worth the mile walk from our hotel

I have to admit that I think NC style BBQ is my favorite. We stopped here for lunch this past weekend. Rode our bikes from the boardwalk. We chose this place, I'll admit, because we had a discount coupon. It did not disappoint. I had the pork BBQ and my husband had the sliced beef. The sides were good. I've... More

I had dinner here with my husband after running errands on this side of town and because I LOVE BBQ and had to try this place due to the numerous reviews and high praise. We arrived at around 6pm and just barely nagged a parking spot so it was pretty busy - after standing in line for about 10 minutes... More

We were looking for something off the boardwalk and located this barbeque place. Short walk and well worth it. Best brisket outside of NC. Ribs were large plentiful and reasonably priced. Iced beer bottles available

I have eaten here twice & both times the food was superb. The Barbecue chicken & potato salad were yummy!
