Combo platter of smoked turkey and pulled pork with mac and cheese and greens for sides were all as good as everyone said it would be. The wife had the brisket, also very good. The dining room is typical bar b q, very plain with the usual rolls of paper towels on the table. Order your food at the counter... More

The The restaurant was fairly full when we arrived at 12:45 on a Friday afternoon however we did not have to wait in line. I ordered the quarter pound pulled pork platter, it came with white or red coleslaw, hush puppies, Texas toast and a side. I had never heard of red coleslaw, but it is made with barbecue sauce...

Great food. You'll not find better bbq which is a food not something you cook on when you're on the patio. The sides are delicious and the desserts are over the top. You will be back.

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

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

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
