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

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.
