“Best BBQ in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I consider myself a local after nearly 20 years, so I feel comfortable saying that this is the best local BBQ. We've been a several times and nothing has yet to disappoint!
Great prices, great options, and excellent service. It's a down home style atmosphere, well as much as you can achieve in a strip mall.

Their adult portion sandwiches are so big that it's a meal on it's own. Great side choices. The Mashed Potatoes are the kind mom used to make. Excellent!~

“Delicious BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Saw this place featured on Triple D. We decided to try this place during a mini getaway to Virginia Beach. We decided to get the trio platter since we could not decide which meats to order. The burnt ends, beef brisket, sausage, and pulled pork were delicious. The Jamaican Jerk chicken was good but not nearly as good as the burnt ends. The trio platter comes with 2 sides (collard greens and green beans were delicious) a piece of corn bread. The cashier recommended the black eyed corn it was different probably more popular in the South. We all left with doggy bags and were able to enjoy the delicious BBQ for lunch the next day.

“The best Barbecue Eva”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Tried this Barbecue after some shopping in the Lynnhaven Mall. The salesclerk at Best Buy recommended this place. The price was reasonable. The food was beyond belief. They were out of Mac & Cheese unfortunately. Pulled Pork Sandwiches. Amazing.
No Fat !! Recomended by Diners,Driveins and Dives.

“Great BBQ for a low price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Food was great, definitely more than worth what you pay for it. However if it's busy I may be difficult to find a seat, especially if you have more than 2 people in your party. His place features community seating, first come, firs serve.

Incredible Smoked Turkey sandwich; very creative. If you want good BBQ, this is one of the best in Hampton Roads.
