I love the sliced brisket and the in house BBQ sauce a must try!!

Marion Abel

Great beef brisket and bbq chicken!

Kara Carey

The Brisket and Roast Beef are so delicious! The prices are good too, especially if your feeding your family.

robert perez

I've been to the VAC Duals Wrestling tournament 3 times in 5 years, and of course we always visit Beach Bully BBQ. The food is delicious, and the service is great! We are from California, so eating here is a big treat for us.

Joe L

Miss BBQ like this, visiting from NY and this place made me feel right at home. Nice people, service, and the BBQ was pretty good. If you like it wet there's a selection of additional sauces you can slather on.

Sharnice Dowe

First off, the food was incredible. I had the Queen rack pork ribs with pasta salad and freshly cut fries. The first thing I did was tried a piece of rib. The flavor was to die for. The fries and pasta salad were amazing as well, but when it comes to ribs some places can not be trusted. The Beach Bully BBQ, is a place that can be TRUSTED. Especially with amazing people like Dawn, Matthew, and Allen. It was my first time here and I can easily say, it will not be my last. Thank you for your amazing customer service, and food. I will definitely come back again. ❤❤❤❤❤

James Astacio

Really good pulled pork, and great hush puppies

Jerry Iungerman

Always try to stop here when I'm in the area. Love the pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwiches. Always friendly and courteous service. Great place to grab a good, quick meal!

Jeremy Duke

Top-notch BBQ. Sauces are perfect, something for everyone.True Carolina style Pork BBQ and there sides can't be beat. Collards will blow your mind.

Colleen Hill

The pork BBQ and sliced pit beef are the best! They have horseradish for the beef!

Pat Mirani

My first visit ever and was pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed my meal, price was reasonable and staff was courteous and personable. I would go back.

Chris Hughey

My food was very good. I had the barbeque and brisket combo. My kids had some sandwich combo and liked it. My wife on the other hand had the fried chicken and was not very happy with it.

Michael Mengel

Today was my first time eating here and it was worth every dollar and I will definately be visiting again! The food was great and the service was awsome!

Joe Simonelli

Great barbecue platters with excellent prices.

Ya-Ju Hsu

The food is unbelievable, beef brisket is my favorite.

Miss Celena C. Muentes

Collards were perfect, hush puppies overcooked just ask for them a little less cooked, pork BBQ good (personally I'd use a Carolina base even with their vinegar base BBQ sauce) their food is great tho, don't get me wrong, variety of food homemade sauces for all your proteins. Prices decent and overall reasonable for two people to spend right around $20ish with entree as well as drink.

Roger Laroux

The food was so good and the staff was so nice food was served quick

Vladimyr Cessant

A bit too sweet for my taste. The sauce overpowered the meats taste so I didn’t find it as enjoyable but the prices were fairly reasonable so that made up for it

Cassidi Nicole

Great joint, friendly staff. Love their Mahogany sauce

Brittany Cain

Food was amazing, atmosphere was awesome, service was great, pricing was good. Definitely recommend and a must try

Donna Gaughan

Worth every penny!! Carolina vinegar, a little smokey, pleasing side sauces and to die for collards. For $15 you get a healthy portion of pulled pork, brisket and 2 sides. Yum!!

Missy Greene

Always delicious! We come every year when we vacation at the beach. It's a ritual!

Joe Rourke

Fantastic food for great prices. Staff was easy going and friendly.

Richard Simmons

If you are even in Virginia Beach this place is a must to visit. The food is absolutely delicious and the location is great because it only half a molde from the ocean. If you need an item recommendation that would have to be the brisket sandwich it’s absolutely fantastic!!

Sam W

Very good bbq, definitely get the pork ribs. The chicken was also very good, the carolina pulled pork I thought was good but not typical, very little sauce and more vinegary than I'm used to. Sided were decent. Service was friendly and food came out pretty quick.

Sharon Peltier

I visited Beach Bully BBQ for the first time. I'm not even from VA. We were welcomed by Dawn, she was friendly, polite, and patient as we took our order. I ordered the King combo. She said it would be about 20 minutes, but the food came out rather quickly. It looked good from the start. Then I finally dug in, the food was all hot, well cooked, and delicious. Matthew was our cook and he was very nice as well. Allen came after but he too was very polite. I did visit the restroom. It was very clean. If I visit VA Beach again, I will definitely be back. Thank you Dawn, Matthew and Allen.

Jessica Stauffer

BBQ is delicious!!.....atmosphere was a little lacking without music but all in all the food was awesome and the staff were friendly!

Ima Ninja

Pulled chicken Bbq sandwich one of the best I've had staff is great really adamant about guests leaving satisfied. Definitely a place I'll come back too when I'm back at the beach

Stephen Jones

Food was really good. Prices were reasonable. Staff made you feel welcome. I give them a 5star +.

David Browning

Great food a must visit if you like BBQ

Scott Noerr

Fabulous BBQ, excellent service, up hand off the main track.

Larry Pleasants

Great food great environment great people working there

Paul Jennings

Decent BBQ, but the thin sliced brisket was definitely odd. It’s almost lunch meat thin and far to sweet, but otherwise everything it good.

Kyle Cummings

The fried chicken is worth the wait! They batter and deep fry to order! We had the brisket sandwich with Mac&cheese and coleslaw, and fried chicken with beefy beans and green beans. The Mac&cheese was great as were the beefy beans! The brisket for the sandwich was sliced extra thin, great sandwich!

Bennie Townsend

Food was heavily seasoned with vinegar.

T Williams

Good prices. The restaurant needs to be maintained better...booths.


Great Ribs!! Friendly staff!

Jeri Higgins

Great food, and at safely as GFCF celiac.

John Wood

I picked up a catering order of 10 pounds of Bbq, 10 pounds of bbq pulled chicken and 10 pounds of beef brisket. Also buns, baked beans and cole slaw. The order was hot and ready to travel in a cooler. The coleslaw was in a cooler bag with ice. They loaded it all in my car for me. They included silverware, plates napkins and tons of side sauces. The mahogany sauce is my favorite; OMG good!! All of our guests were very complimentary of the taste and variety. All of this and the price was right! I highly recommend Beach Bully catering!!

Pat S

The chicken and rib combo is always good here.

stacy oglesbee

Great BBQ place. Not located on the strip/boardwalk. Lots of menu options

LEGIT Chicken

The ribs tasted like nothing and all the meats were dry but their coleslaw was okay. Their fries were grease sponges and the ribs had a consistency of microwaved ribs all in all I do not recommend

Allen Tengco

Great local BBQ joint! Brisket and ribs are real fresh. Would recommend to any friend in the area.

Todd Roberts

Great pork barbecue and great customer service

Rafael Rivera

Good place to eat but a little on the expensive side. The staff was very professional and friendly.

Patrick Bryant

Great food and excellent service. They even made a grilled cheese for my son even though it wasn’t on the menu. They serve, to me, what is Lexington style vinegar based chopped pork which usually I am not a fan of, but this was excellent. The ribs had great flavor, were not over cooked and had a nice bite to them. The fries are fresh cut, Mac n cheese and hush puppies were very tasty. I would recommend you stop in a give this place a try.

Loretta Oconnor

Great food and fast and friendly service

Fighting Phantom2

Sliced pit beef was delicious top it with housemade Tiger sauce. Hand cut french fries and mac and cheese. Perfect...

Sheena Capeiola

Food was excellent! Reasonable price, no complaints here..

Corey Snyder

Only giving this place one star becasue I cant give zero. The food is absolutely tasteless and the fries taste like pure grease. The applesauce even tastes awful. Would not recommend.

AE Conn

Delicious southern barbecue joint. Great fried chicken, good barbeque chicken. Took a risk last time I went and got the seared tuna sandwich and it was surprisingly very tasty. Service is great with very friendly people. Good sauce selection. The textures were a bit off on the chicken last time, but the food was still very good. I highly recommend.

D Williams

Better now than ever before I ate there several years ago and had bad food now the chicken fingers and fries w home made Mac n cheese beats out Pollard's and every other company I've had worth every cent and more so so good my now go to place for comfort food

Danny Lattieri

Fantastic food and great prices!!

Elizabeth Sims

Its not bad. I think most of their sides are from a distributor. Bbq is pretty good, I had the pulled chicken. It wasn't too shabby

Jessica Frederick

OMG this place is a gem!! Amazing bbq. Amazing service. Great atmosphere. All American. Good stuff.

LaQuita Brown

This was my first time going. The Carolina Pork BBQ was amazing. The beef brisket was delicious and the sides (collard greens and french fries) were the icing on the proverbial cake!

Angela Pulella

If I lived anywhere near Virginia Beach, I'd be here all time (I'm many hours away unfortunately). The pulled pork was so delicious and the Mac and cheese? Mmmmm. We also got short rib which was even more delicious than I imagined. If you want BBQ, GO!!!

juan soliz

Im all about smoking meat and good BBQ, with that statement out of the way i must say, my family and i didn't like the food here. Now just because we didn't have a good experience doesn't mean you won't like it either. The beach bully BBQ seems to be liked by the locals so you just may like it too. I smoke my own meat at home and i do own a few custom built smoking pits, and I'm always on the lookout for good BBQ.

The ColorBlack

Great place to get BBQ. The tritip was extremely juicy and well cooked. This place does their BBQ right but leaves the sides with little attention. BBQ baked beans were the next highlight.

Dynamite Kid

Food was made to order and tasty

Mark Blaszczyk

Great ribs and good fries. Great price.

Sheon Stacy

Best food ever. Fast service

John Camper

Best Collards I ever had. The BBQ was great and the service was too.

Dave Smale

The food was top-notch and the service was great. The prices are about what you'd expect from a BBQ place, but the portions were huge! I got a combo plate that had brisket and pulled pork, both of which were delicious. The coleslaw was excellent and the collared greens were the best I've ever had. My wife got a grilled tuna sandwich. I couldn't believe how good it was. Total price was $26. Like I said, about what you'd expect for a BBQ restaurant. Only downside, the facility could use a little TLC. The setup of the restaurant is fine, but it just looks a little on the rundown side. A coat of paint and some new ceiling tiles would go a long way. But in no way does it mean that I wouldn't come back. We definitely will!

Kathryne Drlicka

Great bbq.

shawn swallow

Good chicken, moist and good level of smoke. Ribs were good but didn’t seem to have spent much time smoking. Small portion, but cheap.

Isabel Knapp

It’s really delicious and I recommend it it’s fast and one of the neat barbecue places I’ve been definitely convenient and delicious!

Kenneth Agnello

Best bbq around when I visit Virginia beach!

David Brawley

The food was good and for my family of four, we paid under $42. The parking was good. There was street repairs going on at the time, so the entrance was a pain to get too. They have good seating.

Debra Merrill

Excellent food and service.

Margaret Forshee

One of my All-time Favs!!!! Beach Bully opened the year I began college, and moved to the beach!! This place grew, moved to a new location, and the food is STILL JUST AS TASTY as it was over 20 yrs ago!!! Thanks to the super kind & friendly …

Jason Thomas

Cool.... Atmosphere....the staff is super friendly....the baby back are small but they are good !!!

David Kressel

The guy mopping the floor cussed me out the whole time I was there. Cuz I asked for lemons for tea. Good food. Horrible customer service.

Lee G

Amazing ribs. So soft you can cut them with a plastic knife. The brisket is moist and not fatty. It's cut super thin and is delicious. The fries are hand cut and perfectly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Try the mahogany sauce with your food. I also liked the house sauce. Great barbeque!

Dave Stoner

Good pulled pork and Mac & cheese. Picnic style dinning with foam plates and plastic ware.

NST Pictures

Super easy place to get a quick bite, especially with kids. Order and pay at the front, sit where you please and food is delivered to your table. Delicious BBQ with lots of choices for sauce. I recommend the pulled pork platter. xo, Lindsay at NST Pictures


Pretty good barbecue... especially liked the pulled pork which had a spicy kick to it!


Great BBQ. Good prices


Prices were reasonable, it's an okay shop.

Ben Hamrick

Great Smoked BBQ. They have excellent large scale catering. If you aren't sure if you want them to cater an event you can walk in and order a plate. The pulled pork is very good. Their brisket is the best.

TNa Ho

My cousin love this place a lot. The meat is always tasty and fresh

Tina Summerell

Glad I didn't pay for it... The food was catered for a luncheon at work to celebrate 5 - 35 years of service. The Green Beans had no flavor. The Mac N Cheese was good (the ONLY edible item). The fried chicken had no flavor and was fried to death - very dry and tough. The Brisket was Horrible - oddly shaved thick and was full of fat. I embarrassingly had to spit out 2 mouthfuls of fat (out of 5 bites) then I was done. The flavor was weird - bland, kinda sweet and just gross. The buns for the Brisket were Dollar store quality. VERY disappointed in the food for this special occasion. Glad I din't pay for it and I will NEVER go there or recommend it.

Cylina86 !

A little expensive for what they serve but food is decent!

Robert Mcknight

Food was very good, friendly service prices ok!

Ty Klump

Good food. Very honest. I left my purse, called them yep it was there. Held it for me to go back and get it. Thanks

Scott Parker

Good food. Great prices.

Joshua Roberson

Good bbq right in the heart of the oceanfront. Nice staff with great options for bbq. If you get the chance go by there and check them out. The only reason I gave four stars is bbq is not my top choice for food

Widline Philippe

Food ws good

Chris Burnett

Good BBQ, friendly service

cathy paradise

Great food. You get more than your money's worth and very polite and helpful staff.

Rick A

Excellent BBQ in the Vibe! Ate here twice in one week. Pork BBQ was great both days, Beefy beans were fantastic the first day but the second day seemed like they opened a cheap can of pork and beans.... They were 100% different for some odd reason and were very so so. Potato salad was fantastic both days I ate here. Will definitely return again for more. Also, staff is great and full of personality. Kim and the lunch staff are friendly and fun. Restaurant is clean and well laid out. Outdoor seating looks very nice as well.

Joshua Paul

Very pleasant service, and very good food. It's reasonably priced for good serving sizes. Also a wide variety of main and side dishes to choose from, so you can go every day in a week and try something new.

Patrick Gorrell

Overall an ok BBQ place. Their food was surprisingly kind of bland and I wasn't a huge fan of their sauces. The dining room was old, floors and tables sticky, and just didn't feel inviting. I went to an event catered by them and it was absolutely amazing, so I was excited to go to the brick-and-mortar, but for some reason it wasn't as good.

Abdiel Flores

Brisket was so good I wanted to smack someone in the face. I’ll be back next time I visit.

Elizabeth Holden

Delicious! Better for takeout.

Korey Wertz

Amazing food!!! I wish I had one back home in PA

Bettina Cassanello

Staff was super friendly and quick with our order, it wasn't a super busy time though, only a couple tables other than us. I really enjoyed the pulled pork and brisket combo and will be back to try other things on the menu.

Hayden Martinez

Took a break from Lyft driving here. The lady at the counter was so sweet, the food was good too, it was a nice place to unwind from the Chaos of Something On the Water.

Cassandra Yates

First time here. Two cooks sounded like they were about to get into a fist fight, not professional at all. I could hear and see everything and I was just trying to order food and they were arguing with each other in front of customers with no problem. Cashier was nice and so was the girl handing out the food. Prices are cheap. I was not a fan of the food but that could be because it is Carolina style pulled pork which is vinegary and it wasn't my cup of tea but it is for some people. No music in the building so it was kinda super awkward coming in, everyone looked like they had to whisper.

John Thrush

Food was OK. The restaurant was about 80 degrees inside. Service not good at all except for the guy who brought our food out. Most acted like customers were annoying them. Probably will never go back there again but I was grateful for that experience. Every place we go can't be the best.

Shawn Kaylor

Just awesome. Get there

Richard Salinas

I've never had such small racks of ribs. Everything tasted good, service was good.

Adriana Valverde

Went there for the first time last night. The service was great. Place was clean. Perfect family friendly BBQ joint away from the crazyness of the ocean from but close enough to walk to the beach and convention center.

Helen Zanfini

Place was old fashioned with self serve. Food was really good. Off the oceanfront but great for family and kids right off the beach. Very casual. One table had a saddle for kids to sit on. Great fun.

Chad Baker

Not Good BBQ but mac and cheese was good.

Tristan Coolen

Great BBQ! Very tasty, and has a wonderfully authentic and casual atmosphere. Summer hours last until 9pm.

Amber Butler

Always great service and wonderful food...the salad with grilled tuna is my absolute favorite!

Andrew Silva

Best bbq at the ocean front. An old staple that's never disappointed us. I alternate between the brisket and roast beef, but everything is a solid choice, and the beefy beans are top notch. The entrance to the lot is hard to spot from afar because of the construction in the area, don't let it deter you from one of the better eateries at the beach.

edward hopper

Always a great experience

Wendy Cramer

Great food cozy atmosphere. Definitely will go again if in town. What a great treasure just few blocks from the boardwalk!

theresa ellis

I've been coming here off and on for the past several years. It's one of the best BBQ places in all of Hampton Roads and a locals favorite in Virginia Beach. They do a brisk business! That's because the food is great and so is the service. I recommend the sliced beef sandwich but the whole menu is worth exploring! You simply can't go wrong with any menu selection! By the way, their sauces are delicious. The Beach Bully is always a good call!

William Silver

Food was good, would definitely visit again

Susan Eisner

Great roast beef when its fresh. The French fries are great

Emory Varney

Best BBQ place in Virginia Beach, hands down, amazing atmosphere, and great staff.

Sean-Anthony McCormick

EVERYTHING IS GREAT! This place was the truth everything was amazing.

kelsey akira

Best bbq around. Enough said

Cindi Freymoyer

Excellent food in a totally relaxed low key atmosphere. Recommended by the locals.

Anthony Wyatt

Good customer service. Fresh food. Good tasting food. Great BBQ.

Elizabeth Cuppett

Very good food and very good prices.

Gary Yagiello

Best roast beef sandwiches in VB.

Maribel Rodriguez

Food is delicious and the staff is so friendly! The baby back ribs were awesome only wish they would serve more onion rings.

Frozen Tank

Waitress seemed a little sad which is understandable, shifts can be long and dealing with people can get old, but the food was kind of mediocre. I got the pork sandwich platter with potato salad and mac and cheese. The pork was ok without bbq sauce but tasted like it needed some more rub mixed in, the mac cheese felt like it needed more flavor, and the potato salad was just boiled potato mixed with spinach dip mix. That was the most disappointing but the food was fulfilling and not bad

Plumby Man

My go to I only eat the sliced beef well done but it’s on point but my sandwiches have gotten smaller over the last year . Tighten up on that portion size .

Mr. Burns

My first time coming to establishment the food was really good the chicken I would definitely recommend the fries were awesome the onion rings were to die for. The barbecue was also good definitely would recommend

Connie M

Very good BBQ - we had both brisket and pulled pork that were delicious! Not fine dining but a great place for a good meal for the family!

Bob Chillen

The place is good especially their outdoor setting perfect! the food is delicious, and for a fact that that crew is very friendly nice attracts more customers to get back. highly recommended and very affordable.

Che Paris

Brisket was tough and stringy, had poor flavor. Fries and Mac were decent.

Kathy Roberts

Food was ehhhhhhhhh. The pulled pork had some nasty vinegar taste at the bottom, baked beans tasted like the generic 50 cent canned stuff. Mac and cheese...take jt or leave it. I DID like the brisket How does a bbq joint only have three flavors of bbq, two of which are vinegar based? The cashiers are awful. #1. If you notice people forming a line going in the wrong direction, fix it. 2. When a customer makes a joke, don't stare at them with dead face. 3. When i put 0.00 for tip, don't go "ohhhh" all disgrunted since you have literally done nothing to deserve a tip. You didn't even tell me what to do once my order was placed. F this place.

Jeanette Bujosa

Very good food, omg the chicken and pork was tender and juicy, will for be going back

Cole Baker

The service here was very nice, the people behind the counter were kind. The business is very clean and the food came quickly. The only issues was the food - and it was something else. I ordered the North Carolina BBQ sandwich with beans and mac n’ cheese. The sandwich meat was a light gray and looked like it had been puréed. It was maybe the worst meat i’d ever eaten at a restaurant, and definitely the worst meat I’d ever looked at. It looked and tasted how I imagine wet horse meat would look and taste like. Folks, don’t eat here. It’s not good meat.

Trevor Hodges

My brother and I have found our new favorite “go to place!” The food was beyond my expectations! I have a thing where I get tired of food chains, so I was so excited to try this place out and am so glad I did! I was shocked when they …
