“Another Barbecue & Sports Bar”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Lulu's Smokehouse is an average barbecue place. The food quality is average but there are some selections that are good. Among them are the wings. There are several sauces and/or toppings that are available. If you want to try the different sauces order the wings with nothing on them. The wings will come with the ranch and wing sauce on the side. In addition, there are four other sauces that the server will bring to the table. The tangiest sauce is the wing sauce that comes with the wings. The other sauces are tasty but not that spicy perfect for people who do not like hot and spicy but still like tasty sauces. The wings are also smoked and taste very good.

The service is excellent. The prices are very reasonable. There are daily specials on most nights.

The restaurant is a good meeting place for people that want to be noisy and have fun. The restaurant is in a good location in Southeastern Virginia Beach-Red Mills area. Lulu's is in a shopping area where there are several shopping centers. Close by are other restaurants and retail stores-Target, Walmart, Office Depot or Office Max, etc.

“Extremely slow service”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

First time trying restaurant and it smelled wonderful when we entered. The food took forever to be delivered to our table and was less than expected. For 12.99 the brisket platter consisted of 4 small slices of brisket that was not flavorful. The pulled pork platter was full of fatty pieces and not very appetizing. We will not be returning any time soon.

“Good meal, great service!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

We went to Lulu's due to a Groupon purchase. The prices were surprisingly not bad. Our groupon stated the entree couldn't be more than $20.99 pp and I believe the most expensive thing was around $15.....which was a pound of ribs, which my husband and I got and thought they were very good. We also got the nachos as an appetizer, which were good. They have the option of chicken, chili, pork, and brisket (possibly beef, can't remember).....anyway, we thought we'd try something different and get the brisket on them.....not a great idea. They don't chop the brisket into small pieces so you can eat them on the nachos....they come in long pulled pieces. Not ideal to eat on nachos.

Service was excellent and our waitress was very attentive. I believe her name was Ashlee.....she did a great job!

We had a great experience here, and would not hesitate to go back.

“Slow service...”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

Restaurant was not busy and yet service was very slow. Don't order smoked turkey. Very dry and did not have a smoke flavor...appeared to be a pressed meat with just a spicy rub on it. So disappointed! Baked beans tasted like just out of a can. Cole slaw didn't taste fresh, however , the collards were great....not mushy like some places.

“Great Food”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

We ate dinner here one night during a trip to VB. It is fairly new and very nicely done. Very clean and the staff was great.
We had bbq of course and it was as good as any we have had any where we have traveled. Just the right amount of smoke and seasoning. The side dishes were equally as good and the portions are very large, enough so we had a to-go box with enough for a snack the next day.
prices are very real and easy on the travel budget. The manager came to our table and was very pleasant and we enjoyed talking with him
Good food, good prices good place.
