We visited with daughter and son-in-law for late lunch. The starters of Brunswick stew and fried pickles were very good. The chopped pork platter was plentiful food but meat a little dry - ask for more vinegar based sauce. The sliced beef brisket was unremarkable - not much on any flavor. Sauce saved it. The sauces were good - we... More

This is a must visit if your hungry for BBQ. While on vacation we had the pleasure of eating @ Jakes twice. The pulled pork was out of this world! My husband had Ribs and they were good as well. Friendly staff ,fast service. I was happy we came across Jakes BBQ.

We arrived early, so we were seated immediately.The restaurant appeared clean and orderly. Our waitress was prompt and friendly. I ordered the two meat combo. I had pulled pork and pulled chicken. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich and fried okra. Despite the claim that they don't sauce the meat (they let you do that, with four different sauces... More

My husband ordered fried shrimp ( I said who orders shrimp at a barbque rest) and he loved it! The shrimp were just right, jumbo and firm. I had the pulled pork which was too dry (unless smothered in sauce ) The potato salad was very good.and the garlic bread was flavorful and not hard like it often is. (... More

During a recent trip to Virginia Beach we decided to try Jake's and loved it! Miss Piggy sweet ribs were delicious! Brisket, pulled pork, wings, pulled chicken, and flounder were all winners according to our friends and family. Our waitress was very friendly and provided exceptional service! Highly recommend Jake's if your in Virginia Beach.

Our waitress was super friendly and helpful our whole dining experience! As an appetizer we ordered the nachos with BBQ chicken which came out immediately and were delicious. Entrees were good, perfect portions and hardy! The brisket was tender and well prepared, definitely recommend. The atmosphere is very welcoming and casual.

While I don't claim to be an expert on the design/style of BBQ, I am an expert when it comes to eating good food and I was thoroughly satisfied at Jakes! This was hands down, the best meal we had while in the VA Beach area for a few days. If you like BBQ, good service, at a decent price,... More
