Hushpuppies were great!

Traveling through NC and found Bibs. I had a pork and rib combo. The BBQ was ok. Being from georgia I'm a fan of Carolina mustard based sauces. The thin vinegar sauce is nice for a change every now and then. The plate was served with hushpuppies which were awesome! Portions were big as well.

I felt like the food was good. I thought the atmosphere was decent, but the restaurant was rather loud. The sauce was a sweet bbq sauce. I am personally not a sweet sauce fan, so it was not that great! Overall it was good, but I did feel like the prices were a little high compared to other BBQ places... More

We eat at their stand at the BBQ Fest and it was out of this world some of the best ribs I have had in a long time, went to the downtown location one evening and it was very dry, tasteless and looked like it had been cooked 3 days ago. When we tried the BBQ at the Fest it... More

Most recently visited for lunch with my brother (a CIA trained chef). The food was generally okay however, the sauce on the table was fermented. I swapped the sauce bottles with another table but, one of those was also fermented. So, three of four bottles tried were spoiled. Called it to the attention of one of the staff however, she...

Atmosphere was ok. They had a one man band playing. Ribs were the worst Ive ever had in my life. They smelt, and tasted like farm animal. Will not be going back.

So I had one night in Winston-Salem and I wanted to have barbecue. A colleague recommended Bib's Downtown and I can say it's a good place for 'cue. Pulling up to Bib's my first impression was that it looked too slick for good barbecue, with all that glass and y'know, air conditioning but they let the smoked meat do the... More

It's always difficult to figure out what to do when you arrive at a restaurant with a large counter and find people standing around trying to decide what and how to,order. This is especially true at Bibs so let me help! Grab a menu from the counter or wall. Make all your decisions (sides, plate or sandwich) before you get... More

Called in our order and it was ready when I walked in the door - just as planned. The food smelled so great that my mouth was watering on the way to the meeting. I had the Chicken Meat Salad and it was loaded with Chicken and all the good trimmings. Others had the meat combination platters of many variations.... More

Read about Bib's in Our State magazine and since we were in Winston-Salem we anted to try it. Just wanted a sandwich but could not find it on the billboard above the counter. When I asked I found out the sandwich was $8.95. The clerk asked if I wanted a plate but did not say it was only a dollar... More

Stopped here during a business trip for a quick dinner. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious. I received a filling meal for under $20 and would go back again if I am ever in the area.
