We stopped in for lunch on a Friday, about 12:45 pm and had missed the rush. We had great service by Shannon (#6). Our food was there within 3 minutes of when we sat down. We both had the bbq plate which came with hush...More

One thing I learned in NC is the BBQ sauce is vinegar based. It is good but if you don't like vinegar keep that in mind. The food was good and the prices were great! Fed 2 adults with drinks for $14! I couldn't believe...More

I made the mistake of going to the bathroom first before sitting down to eat. It’s a shame when you can go to a gas station that has a cleaner bathroom. There is so much dust on the two blue doors that makes no sense....More

My wife grew up in Goldsboro and insists we eat at Wilber’s each visit. I don’t argue, even though the decor is stuck in the Sixties, you go for that vinegar based barbecue & sauce, the best in eastern NC.

A lot of food for a fair price. I'm not a big fan of NC vinegar based bbq, but this was darn good. The chopped whole hog was mostly tender. The vinegar level was fine, but a tad too many red pepper flakes for me....More

While making a quick trip to Carolina Beach, we made a detour to Goldsboro to try Wilber's. As a N.C. native, I had never eaten there. We were greeted by a server who was very friendly and the Southern hospitality that reminded me of my...More
