There was a guy at Bib's who plays guitar on Friday night. He not only is talented, he is really good to the kids and place family-friendly songs. It is worth going on a Friday to end the week and let the kids blow off some steam.

I was in town for a convention and wanted some good ribs so I went online to check on the ribs joint in Winston Salem and picked Bib's but man was I disappointed in the food. The hush puppies were hard and the food was cold and I had to send it back and the chicken wings were as big... More

Ate here the first week in November with friends for lunch. Always remembered having a good experience but was disappointed today. Had the BBQ sandwich with a side of hush puppies. Also had the white slaw. The meat flavor was good smokey and tender(not much of it),the bun too big for the contents, the slaw cold and crisp. The hush... More

While in the area on business today, we decided to revisit this popular downtown BBQ eatery to see if we felt any different about the smoked meats and such served here - and we found that our original opinions were basically unchanged - the the vast majority of the food here is just not to our liking, especially at these...

We drove through the area, and wanted to have some BBQ. This place has good variety of food. But most of the food is kind of cold when it's served. The hush puppies are really hard. The chopped pork, chicken, beef brisket and ribs have good flavor. But we had better ones somewhere else. It's not NC style BBQ, just... More

I am by no means a BBQ connoisseur but I know good food when I eat it. In town for business and wanted to sample some authentic NC BBQ. Had to be within walking distance of my hotel and Bib's fit the bill. I ordered the two meat sampler with pulled pork, smoked sausage, white slaw, collard greens and hush... More

My niece said I had to try Bib's and was she ever right!! The ribs were very good but not exceptional, the sausage was fantastic and the smoked meatloaf was the bomb. Sides were very good and each meal came with the best hush puppies. I will travel back to Winston-Salem for Bib's!! A must stop when in the area.

The food and beer here are wonderful. It is a good value. The wait staff is wonderful but the checkout line is a mess. They ask a bunch of questions and seem to fumble around with the computer system. Kid friendly. It is a becoming a Winston landmark.

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
