Just driving up you can smell the deliciousness of this place. The barbecue has a unique smoked flavor and we order take out at least twice a month. My granddaughter LOVES this place. Recently we went for lunch and there was 6 of us and service was EXCELLENT.

I am visiting Chester on business. found this BBQ "swiping" around google Maps. It is a decent size place but not good for large groups. It has the usual BBQ joint menu; but the house BBQ shredded pork is amazing. The wait staff was friendly and attentive.

I was seated promptly just at the beginning of the lunch rush at a corner table and was immediately approached by my server who asked about beverage, brought it quickly, then gave me a couple more minutes, returned promptly, took my order - the large BBQ meal - with slaw and corn fritters. This came back in good time -... More

After reading reviews, which were largely positive, we had our dinner here. The food and service were very good. My brisket was so soft, it crumbled before I could spear it with my fork. Country fried steak was also good. Both dishes came with 2 sides and some hush puppies. Sorry we don't live in the neighborhood. Just passing through.

Ate lunch here one afternoon. The restaurant was older but appeared clean. Service was OK, nothing special. Food is priced pretty average for this type of food. I had the BBQ ribs and they were ok but nothing special. Hushpuppies were OK. Overall the place was OK but nothing special. I would probably give this place another chance.

Great Barbecue. This is my granddaughter's favorite barbecue. She is always asking for Sibley's. Just the smell alone gets your taste buds going. We always take out although we have eaten in a few times. The barbecue has a smoke flavor that stands out. The ribs are really good, falling off the bones as soon as you pick them up.... More

This is one of my very favorite places to eat! You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu here! The food is always delicious and plentiful, the service is always fabulous and the restaurant and restrooms are always clean. Make sure you get some hush puppies and sweet tea and try the cobbler for dessert too!

Took my mom here for lunch on her birthday. The portions were generous, prices reasonable. The BBQ was so yummy..juicy and flavorful. My mouth is watering at the memory. Our server was friendly and attentive. We tried the corn fritters and fell in love! We just moved to the area, and I'm so glad I've found delicious barbecue that is... More
