Best brisket with burgundy sauce in town. A little expensive, but what restaurant isn't lately. Good deal with the value check coupons. Get the hush puppies and homemade fries.

Had high hopes, but left disappointed. Nice decor inside and friendly staff, but my BBQ brisket sandwich was lacking flavor for me. The meat was also not as lean as I like. The sides we had (fries, coleslaw, beans) were all ok but nothing to rave about. I miss the BBQ I was able to get living in Texas and... More

As you visit for the first time, it may be a bit confusing at first as there's a podium/hostess thingy at the entrance, where you don't know whether you get seated or.... But you walk forward and order/pay and the food is brought to you while you wait. I noticed multiple people walk in and appear confused briefly as well.... More

Went here while on vaca a couple weeks ago and it was awful! The brisket was dry and reheated. The mac and cheese was mush and flavorless and the green bean were canned! Don't waste your money!

A friend suggested Bar B Que for dinner, which sounded good to me because I had not had any in a very long time. I used my phone to locate to nearest restaurant and was very pleased to discover that there was one close by at the beach. I called, placed my order and went to pick it up for... More

We've been here several times and love the Carolina - style pulled pork sandwiches in particular. The brisket is excellent as well, although a bit on the sweet side for my taste. The meat is fabulous, and the service is cheerful and efficient. Downsides are price (on the high side for BBQ in my opinion) and little details that go... More

This is by far the best BBQ in Virginia Beach. Local place without a lot of glitz, sit-down or take out. Catering for a few or hundreds all done with excellent service and top notch food. May have to wait a few due to volume and everything cooked as you order, but well worth it. Prices are great also.There is... More

The food was great! Excellent selection and other menu items. They were extremely busy the evening we were the. It was standing room only and people were standing everywhere waiting for food. The kitchen and wait staff seemed confused, they lost orders and it took a while to put some orders together. But I give them credit, they never stopped... More

We have visited this location while on vacation 3 times on 3 different vacations and all 3 were just excellent. The food is very good, large portions. The staff is outstanding. They are worth the trip off the Boardwalk.

The brisket is my favorite, but EVERYTHING is good. We've never had a meal that was too dry. The service is fast. Good smells everywhere! Fries? Excellent! Mac n' cheese is, too. It's an open room with lots of tables and some booths in the back. Everyone orders at the register, then grabs and a seat and your food is... More
