Can't believe I'm just finding out about this great place just across the mall parking lot. Smelled great when I walked in and the customer service was fast and friendly. Had the Texas Sliced Brisket sandwich and liked it. Should have went with one of the combo platters. Next time!

Not a whole lot to say. In town on business and was referred by a local. Food was fantastic. Had the ribs and pulled shoulder, both tender and delicious. YUM YUM

I remember watching Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives years before and made a mental note that the next time we went to Virginia Beach, I was definitely going to Whitner's. We visited there on October 1st just as it opened and thought that might be a mistake since they just opened, but a group of work guys were all lined up... More

Southern BBQ! If you are traveling to Virginia Beach, you MUST eat here! This is exactly what you are looking for if you desire only the best! I'd give it 10 stars if I could. Amazing service too! The smiles never end here and you can see them on everyone who stops here. Crowded, yes! Great, yes!

The bbq was fairly good, but the sides were terrible. I had the green beans and they tasted like they dumped them from a can and heated them up. I also had the cornbread and it was so dry I almost choked. I was also disappointed because I had asked for cole slaw on my sandwich, but it didn't have... More

Have eaten here before and remembered it as being good. But my experience was not the same this time. The shredded pork was like mush (like it was left over and they re-headed it in water which made it mushy). No bread comes with meal unless you choose it as one of your 2 sides.

Not impressed, was expecting it to be a lot better since it was on Triple D, won't return. Food was bland and not enough meat on the burnt end sandwich. Certainly not the same sandwich made in Triple D.

The food here was pretty good, yet only average for a BBQ place. My By of Pigs sandwich was pretty good, as were the baked beans ( out of a can) and potato salad (probably out of a can from a large warehouse store ). My wife's chicken was pretty good, but uneven.

We drove from Atlantic City inorder to try their BBQ (before closing time) and were not disappointed. Of course the pulled pork and ribs were great; however, what about the sides ... coleslaw that provided a pop of flavour in your mouth, potatoe salad that was as close to home made as possible and the beans were the perfect finishing...
