You should also try the Beach Bully in VA Beach Va as well. Mainly a catering deal, they still serve in a small joint down at the oceanfront. Food is out of this world.
Is that he place on Laskin Rd (31st Street) and Artic Ave? I think they just opened when I move from my home town (Va Beach since 1962) to Florida. Never got to try 'em but I have also heard the BBQ is really good there from some of my old frinds at the Beach. Also, if it's the location I'm thinking about, I believe that it was my dad who designed that funny looking building way back in the early sixtys for his buddy in Newport News who was starting a short lived fast food burger chain named "Rich's" drive-in. How bout that for local trivia!!!
BTW, I first learned to BBQ from my dad who grew-up in NC and moved to Tidewater. Every year for as long as I can remember, my dad and some of his co-workers would cook a whole hog (head on) in the brick BBQ pit that they built next their office on J. Clyde Morris Blvd in Newport News for my grandfather bithday party. It was alway a huge turn out and the pig was always excellent.
