My husband and I were spending a weekend getaway in Smithfield,Va and decided to make a quick afternoon trip to Virginia Beach. We got to the boardwalk around 2ish and we're wanting some good ole barbecue lunch. The app around us came up with The Beach Bully on 19th St so we decided to try it. It did not disappoint.... More

We decided to try Beach Bully when we purchased a Groupon, and glad we did. Service was great and food was awesome. True pit cooked barbeque. Options for various sauces, all of which were very good. We will be back!

Always stop here when we're in VB. Casual, order at the counter, they bring the food to you. Different delicious BBQ sauces, I've even bought some to go. Go when you're hungry! Yummm, wish I had some of their BBQ pork and hush puppies and cole slaw right now!

I would have rated this a 5 star had it not taken so long to get the food. However, it was very busy when we visited. The food was delicious with large servings for the price. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the restaurant was clean.

The flavors of Beach Bully BBQ are rich without overpowering the flavor of the meat. They also have good BBQ sauces, the mahogany was my personal favorite. They have the best Beef Ribs that I have tasted so far! The chef loves and truly cares about the quality of food he makes. He had changed his recipe and came out... More

My family and I decided to eat out and came across this place on Trip Advisor. I've heard great things about the food so we figured we would give it a try. Didn't want anything too fancy, just a quality meal. We were a little surprised when we went in that it wasn't the type of restaurant where you get... More

Read the reviews and I love BBQ, so we decided to check it out. Sorry to say, I was a little disappointed. I was expected to be blown away based on what I read. It wasn't terrible, just average. The brisket was sliced paper thin which I have never had before. Traditional brisket is thicker with more beef/smoky flavor. I... More

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!
