We came to Bib's after searching a few other places, and was pleasantly surprised! We apparently got there just in time, around 5pm on a Saturday, because as soon as we sat down after placing our order, the line went out the door! The selection was great, ribs, brisket, pork, and burgers. Good sides too! And don't forget dessert!! Oh... More

I went to Bib's while in Winston Salem for business and had a very solid experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful when asking for recommendations, and the food was just what you'd expect from a BBQ joint. While I was there, a man was playing delightful guitar music--made the experience that much better! Definitely recommend for anyone looking... More

Love to dine at Bib's Downtown. Recently they've added for the month their "BESTERN" burger. A smoked ground beef burger- a very very tasty hamurger, as the smokiness is present in every bite. I haven't seen a smoked burger before- and really love it. Can't go wrong with the brisket or ribs. Don't forget the Hush Puppies. Will be back... More

I've tried them all, Bibs is still my favorite Triad BBQ spot. I'm sure some of this is a matter of personal taste. The selection of meat has something for everyone. Tonight I had turkey and brisket, but I also like the ribs, pulled pork, sausage and wings. I have yet to try the meatloaf. The sides are excellent, particularly... More

I've greatly enjoyed everything I've had at Bib's. Even if it was not my cup of tea, per se, it enjoyed trying it. The meat has always been top notch and I really enjoyed it. The sides are usually pretty good. I really enjoy the collards and mac and cheese. Service is friendly but hit and miss with time. Sometimes... More

I really hope the tip jar on the counter goes to her,... More

I finally gave Bib's Downtown a try since I had heard so much about their barbecue. I tried the brisket and my husband had ribs. The cost was almost $30 and we had to order at the front and were brought food with plastic utensils. Both proteins were mediocre at best and the sides we chose were not even worth... More
