“Great BBQ - Don't expect anything but good BBQ”
Reviewed 29 May 2011

Malbon and pigs are are synonymous in Va Beach. They sure got it together with the BBQ. They have expanded the eating area in the combo restaurant -convenience-store gas station. Out out town guest were like "what the ..." Then they tasted the BBQ. Yummm.

“Best BBQ at the beach”
Reviewed 15 April 2010

Discovered this place when we moved to the area back in 1998 and haven't been disappointed yet. They have wonderful breakfasts and the BBQ is the best in the area. We have ordered this for several events we needed catered.

“Malbon's best BBQ sauce in town”
Reviewed 8 January 2010

I have lived in VB for 20 years and Malbon's has the best food and sauce in town. The sauce is vinegar-based and quite tangy. The restaurant is simple and located in a gas-station/carwash complex. The setup is more for to-go or catering, but the food is worth it.

“BBQ-Don't”
Reviewed 10 March 2009

I don't know what people in virginia consider good bbq, but this is not it unless you like your pork to melt in your mouth because it is a watery mush.
This place is in a gas station, which in my past experience is a good sign of home cooked goodness, but here I would think that the ho-ho's or fritos in the chip aisle were better.
