THESE Are the Best Cities for Barbecue in the (757)!


Remember that study that said Virginia Beach was the THIRD-best city in America for barbecue cookouts? After the internet was done laughing, they must’ve gone back and re-done the research.

This new survey tells a very different story… according to data from LawnStarter, VA Beach is actually one of the most mediocre places in America to grill up some BBQ. The Neptune City scored a 153rd place finish out of 200 cities included.

Not exactly finger-licking good. Our near neighbors inĀ Richmond fared much better though, dropping in at 12th overall!

Here in the (757), the BBQ standings looked like this: Norfolk (88th), Chesapeake (112th), the aforementioned VA Beach at 153rd, and Newport News rounding things out at 182th.
