Great lunch

I've had a series of really good lunches here on business. I wish they would streamline the ordering. There is a partial menu on the wall, paper menus on the counter and then the cashiers seem to really struggle with overly complex machines. Other than the ordering great experience.

We visited Bib's last evening for the first time and found found excellent food in a old converted Firestone Tire Store. Not fancy, but when it has the taste that their pulled pork and ribs have, atmosphere is not required. Service is fast and food is plenty as the plates need sideboards. Be sure to try, you'll like it! daveg

We have been here many times & their ribs ~falling off of the bone tender~ are my favorite ffrom any restaurant in NC. Their menu elections are plentiful, and I have had almost everything they offer. I have also ordered their chopped barbecue for take out for a large party...and everyone loved it.

Good food, knowledgeable staff, good value, clean dinning room, we got in just before a big crowd of traveling Students - but noticed that they were served quickly

I went to Bibs for lunch around 1Pm on a Wednesday. It was not crowded but the service was exceptionally slow and the food was served cold. I ask the staff if it was supposed to be served cold. They Replied no and if mine was served cold? I said Yes! The cashier just turned around and walked away as... More

After hearing about how good it was we finally decided to try it last night. I ordered a half rack of ribs NOT smothered in sauce with a side of mac & cheese. Hubs ordered the brisket with a side of potato salad. When it was brought to the table it looked delicious. The plate was a little overcrowded with... More

We had seen them on the Food Network in a BBQ cookoff show and figured we needed to try it for ourselves. We weren't disappointed. Great pulled pork and the beef brisket melts in your mouth. Plenty of sides, including the ever popular hush puppies. Come hungry, cause the feed you a lot of food. We have returned numerous times... More

Our family went here recently to celebrate a family members birthday. I had never been and I am always skeptical of bbq the first time out. I was very pleased. Don't be fooled there is nothing fancy about this place. What makes it good, besides the decor which is eclectic and very local, the staff who are very friendly and... More

Decided to check this place out as we are new to the area and still learning about the various types of BBQ. We moved from Philadelphia and are use to the eastern style BBQ. This place had a great slogan: "we are not eastern or western, we are bestern." This place had a great mix of both styles. I got... More
