Great as always

Had the BBQ and Brunswick stew combo. Tons of food and all really good. Sweet tea is also very good and got a pound of the Q to go!

Not sure how they do it but everything taste like the same grease they cook the chicken, fries, cornbread and hushpuppies in. They are know for BBQ pork but I think that was in the 70's. Bring some Rolaids. The good news is its never crowded.

Many in our family enjoy this bbq. It left much to be desired by me. Could just be that I prefer the piedmont bbq not the eastern style. The hush puppies were Great! I'll always accept Wilbers puppies but I'll pass on the bbq.

The family smiled and thought of Charlotte's Web when we saw Wilber's Barbecue. So we had to stop for lunch when drove by on our way home from New Bern. We were not disappointed. The Pork Barbecue was delicious with ample servings. The hush puppies were tasty. The barbecued chicken was very good, but the sauce was wonderful. We will... More

The barbecue was classic, vinegar-based style, though it had a heavier smoke flavor that I've experienced with other BBQ places in Eastern NC. The sides are... More

We enjoyed the meal we had there. I had the pork plate, and my wife had the half barbecued chicken. They give a big basket of hush puppies when you are seated. The drinks are served in styrofoam cups; perhaps a glass would be better. Food was tasty; what more could you want at a BBQ place?

Tasty simple BBQ, NC style. I usually get the BBQ plate, I love the coleslaw and potato salad. Simple decor and quick polite service, worth a visit.
