“Good BBQ but you will leave hungry or spend a lot of money on thin sandwiches.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Wibs has great tasting BBQ meat on regular white bread. The amount of meat you get is minimal. Years ago with previous owners, you could buy a sandwich and soda filling satisfied when you were finished. Now you could buy three sandwiches and still feel hungry because the meat portion is hardly enough to cover the bread. I like Wibbs and I hope they rethink the skimpy portions and return to what made them popular - a great BBQ sandwich.

“Over priced....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Way over priced good food but too expensive... I ate there and $15. for what I ate not including the tip. I could have had a big steak for that.

“Unique Twist on BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I have family that lives in Jackson, and everytime we come visit, we come to Wib's. This is an awesome little dive/hole in the wall joint. There's a family atmosphere here (that's also just a Jackson things). Its excellent food. I call it BBQ with a twist because I don't think it's anything like your typical "BBQ" joints. Their specialty being a grilled classic white-bread sandwich with grilled ham and cheese spread. You can get it real spicy. (I suggest this) and if you're hungry, get 2, for sure! Wib's food and service never disappoint! Love them.

“Awesome BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Its a little place, but don't let that fool you. The recipe for this BBQ goes way back, and still is a local favorite hotspot.

“Great bbq sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

My husband can't go to Jackson without stopping by Wibs Drive In. It's been an instituition in this community since the 1940's. They have thin slices bbq on toast with sauce to your liking, they also have pies, fries, pimento cheese and even minced pork meat sandwiches like a pork salad. The servers are always quick and friendly. This place is closed on Sundays and Mondays so get your fix the 5 days they are open.
