Restaurant Review: Barefoot BBQ on 30A

Food trucks are popular in D.C., but they never interested me when I was working in the city. Lobster from a truck just didn’t sound appealing. The cupcake truck, however, was a favorite.

But now that we’re committed to trying out all of the great food available in our area, we had to try the food trucks (also referred to as food trailers) located on Highway 30A in Seaside.

First, we tried Barefoot BBQ because, let’s face it, the smell of barbecue never fails to entice us. It was a cloudy day, but the rain held off, which just meant that the food truck area wasn’t as crowded as I’m sure it usually is. With its convenient location near the beach, lots of vacationers and locals alike hop over to the food trucks for sustenance when spending a day soaking up the sun.

Barefoot BBQ has a lot of yummy options on their menu, which you can see by clicking here. And, all of their meats are hormone, steroid and antibiotic free.

David and I shared the pulled pork sandwich platter. The platters come with two sides, which range from baked beans to corn on the cob. We opted for Zapp’s chips and mac & cheese:

We also shared the three beef brisket sliders (note that you can’t mix & match the sliders, though):

We ordered a lemonade to wash down our meal with (highly recommend it – plus free refills!). The food was reasonably priced, especially considering the location, but we did spend more than $20 on a quick lunch.

Everything was delicious, but the sauces stood out the most. We tried all of them except for the hottest one, and my favorite was the Hang Ten. One of the comments on foursquare said the mac & cheese was runny, but we both really liked it. It had a unique flavor that went well with the barbecue. And who doesn’t love Zapp’s chips?

The staff was very friendly, and we didn’t have to wait long for our food. We also were fortunate to grab a table near the food truck, but seating is very limited in that area.

Overall, good food in a popular area served by nice people. We’ll definitely be back, especially because I really want to try their BBQ nachos!

  1. I couldn’t agree more! My favorite is to combine the Pipeline and Hot Lava sauces with the brisket or pulled pork.

  2. You were on my side of town! My favorite is the BBQ Nacho’s but all food is terrific at Barefoot BBQ! There are many local spots that do not fare as well, and many chefs have left once popular restaurants. Visitors return feeling deflated. Barefoot will be consistant always, as owners are on site and not leaving! Glad to know there is another blogger in town. Just became friends with Duchess of Fork! You can find me on 30A EATS Facebook, and @fromagechick twitter! 🙂

    • Hi 30A Eats! I’m already fan of yours on Facebook. Thanks for providing a resource of restaurants in the area. I’m definitely going to have to try those BBQ nachos now!

      • Thanks Lyndsi!
        I am now following you on twitter but could not find a facebook page! While searching, I saw you attend Destiny Worship. I’ve known Steve and Jackie since 1999, and watched the church grow through the years, Good people. Our boys began Kindergarten together,and are graduating this year! Yay! I can also be reached at, if you need anything or would like to get together for lunch sometime. Best to you, and Happy Palm Sunday!
