Voted Best of Virginia Beach in 2012 and 2013. Great burger choices here, like The Half & Half (shown above), the Black ‘n Blue and The Hell Burger (cayenne dusted with fresh jalapenos, srirachi and pepper jack).

FRESH. Everyone claims to do it, but Woody McGees really does! They go to great lengths to find the finest ingredients and prepare them in the best possible ways to provide you with a mouth watering meal. Over thirty-five years of experience has brought them here. They cut their own steaks, use Smithfield Black Forrest Ham, oven baked natural turkey breast, thick smoke prepared bacon and the freshest fish available. They also cook everything to order.

2. No Frill Bar and Grill

With some good burger choices, the clear standout is the Over The Top Burger: Fried egg, Canadian bacon, American cheese with a beer battered onion ring.

The No Frill Bar and Grill on Laskin Road at Hilltop North Shopping Center in Virginia Beach features a retro look outside and a casual but classy look inside: hard woods and granite fill the space drenched in warm lighting. Like its cousin in Norfolk, the No Frill Grill offers full service, a spacious, warm interior, chef created dinner specials, wine lists, and a unique selection of homemade desserts.

3. Chicks Oyster Bar

Chick's Double Bypass

2143 Vista Cir, Virginia Beach, VA 23451

Interesting burgers here, like a crab-topped burger , The Moby Dick (two patties, bacon, egg and cheese) and The Inferno.

Go try their Clear the Plate and Walk out w/ a Chick’s Tee contest like with the Double Bypass Burger: get The Defibrillator Ready!!! A Full Pound of Ground Chuck Loaded w/ Lettuce, Tomato, Hickory Bacon, Chipotle BBQ sauce, Pepper Jack Cheese, Cajun Fried Haystacks & Jalapenos & a Mountain of Hand Cut Fries.

4. Boneshakers Sports Bar & Grill


1297 General Booth Blvd, Virginia Beach, VA 23454

Good selection of half pound burgers, including the Knockout (“Black and Bleu” style), the Slugger (pictured above, topped with a fried egg, cheddar and bacon) and the End Zone Patty Melt (w/ grilled onions, bacon and swiss on rye bread).

Boneshakers Sports Bar & Grill is a great place to sit down, relax and listen to live music on the deck. They offer a full service menu with some really awesome specials. All of their cooks are actual chefs and they’re allowed to be as creative as they want with the specials board. The staff is most definitely The Best at the Beach and they even have a children’s menu.

5. Shelton’s Big Grill

Shelton's Carolina

309 Aragona Blvd #113, Virginia Beach, VA 23462
Website | Facebook | Twitter

Awesome selection of interesting, affordable burgers here. The Carolina In My Mind Burger is shown above, and the standout is the Walk Like a Zombie Burger (two 1/4 lb. patties atop a pyre of fries, all smothered with a frightening amount of homemade chili, onions and melted cheddar-jack cheese, then all topped with dreadful bits of bacon).

“It all started in the late 60s in a small town in the foothills of Virginia known as Gretna. Mom and dad — Shirley and Jack Shelton — were young, and both worked hard at their regular jobs during the week. My two older brothers and I were just kids, but helped out with the chores around the house. We bought a pull-behind concession stand in 1967, and on the weekends, when the weather was nice, we would hitch that trailer up, and away we’d go; to local auctions, flea markets, and most often — as I recall — to Arrowhead Campgrounds at Smith Mountain Lake.” Read more of their history at their website.

6. Lendy’s Cafe
