Don't expect anything fancy when you go to Sibley's, it is a BBQ joint. However do expect great service and fantastic tender, juicy and tasty BBQ and ribs; I love their dry ribs.

BBQ is okay, but love their catfish. Always busy and a great spot to hit for a quick lunch during the work week. Fast service.

We like Sibley's very much, we usually get takeout and eat with others. I love their bbq ,slaw,and various sauces that are available. The meat is moist and has a great smoked flavor. I prefer the pulled pork style over minced or sliced. Also, I like some of the outside , crispy meat mixed in which enhances the flavor. Their... More

All the BBQ is good, but their ribs are the best. They are always full so it pays to come at an off time. Atmosphere is very informal - paper plates. Their catfish and rockfish are also very good. Get the corn fritters

We had a couples visit for dinner and everyone was pleased with the restaurant. The restaurant is clean and the staff is friendly. They offer lots of meat choices and sauces. The sides are very good too.

Sibley's is the best BBQ around!! In addition to mouthwatering BBQ, Sibley's has baked sweet potatoes, delicious chicken stew, and the best pies in Chester! It's got a great homey feel and the service is always fast. Whether placing an eat-in or a to go order, Sibley's is top notch!

If you're looking for BBQ with the flavor cooked in rather than added with sauces, this is not the place for you. The food is strangely bland. There's nothing wrong with it - just flavorless. It seems to be a local favorite.
