We decided to host a Xmas eve gathering with family and friends, and went full press on a huge Bibs selection. Has virtually everything on the meat menu to give our guests options. Everything was terrific, and it was so easy to organize and hot and ready when we came to get it. Holidays... read more

I wanted to like Bib's. It has a cool location, but for the portions of what you get the price is ridiculously high. You leave feeling a bit violated in your wallet, especially when other BBQ places offer much more food for the dollar amount. My food has never been amazing and at least one trip, it wasn't very good.... More

Great food! Great atmosphere! Customer service was too notch. I liked that they used real plates! Loved the bbq egg roll! I thought it was a little pricy. $45 for lunch for my family of five!

Overall a very good place. The brisket and pulled pork were well cooked with great flavor. The portions were large but a little pricey, the bbq beans were so so, and the other sides were fine. Great bbq restaurants can make good hush puppies and banana pudding.bibbs has the best hush puppies and banana pudding I have ever had...

In an area and state teeming with BBQ restaurants, my favorite is Bib's. My most recent visit was Friday, August 7, 2015 for lunch. Arrived at 11:30 and walked right up to the counter. Had the pulled-pork plate with Bib's Beans, potato salad, white cole slaw and hushpuppies. All of it was great, especially my two favorites: The hushpuppies have... More

We have been a GREAT supporter of Bib's Downtown since it opened and have used the catering service several times. We have always been pleased with the service and quality of food. However, in May we had a bad experience with our order. Our group of 3 couples placed orders one right after the other. The first two couples received... More

We had a large group, and called ahead. The turkey and sausage two-meat combo was great, as was the sweet tea. The restaurant has a funky charming atmosphere, and there is a parking lot as well (not always an option in downtown). I'd definitely go back.

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

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.
