The play is the real deal! Amazing BBQ and sides, great Burgers and Wraps too. They have something for everyone. The sweet tea is good too.

Grabbed lunch and ordered the two meat platter (turkey and brisket), along with baked beans, coleslaw and it came with Texas toast and hush puppies. The meat was very tender and tasty, the beans were GREAT, and despite me typically hating coleslaw as well as hush puppies, both were very good. Especially the hush puppies, very unique flavor compared to... More

The food was one of a kind delicious...savory deserts...bbq beef that was tender and cooked to smoky perfection and sauces that would tickle your tastebuds. The staff was soo friendly and welcoming. They made our night chill and relaxed. A very... More

Bib's really does have excellent barbecue, but be warned, this isn't like a typical North Carolina BBQ joint. That's not a bad thing. It's just that you shouldn't expect Lexington Style BBQ when you come here. This is more of a Texas style place. The pork and smoked chicken are delicious. The sides are excellent too. I have only had... More

I love Bibs! I knew Mark before he made it big, back when he had nothing more than a smoker that he used to take around for catering events and festivals. The first thing I ever had that he made was the BBQ wrap and it is still my favorite!!! All of their smoked meats are awesome. My favorites are... More

I attended a retirement party at bibs and had a great time. Food was regional and not to my liking, but others loved it. Party room is lovely!

Looked at some reviews on our journey from Indiana to the beach. Craving some bbq as we often do and headed to Bibs...were blown away. Great food and the sweetest servers. Our tea glasses were never less than 3 quarters full. Hubby got ribs, slaw and onion rings. I got smoked turkey sandwich and collards. Everything comes with killer hush... More

Was in the area recently and decided to give them a try. No complaints. Food and service were good. Nothing that would make me seek them out but would return if in the area.

I got a plate with a pulled pork sandwich, three ribs, and cornbread on the side. It also came with hush puppies. Everything was delicious and I spent a lot of time catching up with an old friend. They could tell we were chatting and didn't kick us out even though they were closing and we didn't notice. They were... More
