This place is friendly and quick. The BBQ is really good. The ribs were ok, that because my Hubby's ribs are better. Great sides to choose from. The best part is that the price for the food is very reasonable.

Decent BBQ stop off RT. 10. Has your classic menu prepared southern style. Coleslaw is good and corn fritters are pretty decent. Pulled pork was standard and sauces are on par with other similar restaurants

Go frequently and always satisfied. Good food at a reasonable price. Small eating area so get there before 6pm or you may wait. Well worth waiting for and fast turnover.

I love BBQ, (Texas, Memphis, North Carolina, & Kansas style). This wasn't terrible, just needed to cook a little longer so the ribs were "fall off the bone" tender. The catfish was good, but the batter is heavy. The chicken isn't bad, but the skin was soggy so just discard it. The okra was good. We would go back, but... More

By far, the best ribs In the Richmond area. Pulled pork was okay. They give you a lot of food so come hungry.

Sibley's BBQ is some of the best NC style BBQ outside of the state. Their rib sauce is also very good if you prefer the sweeter tomato based sauce. Other meats are worth a try if pork BBQ is not your favorite. Ribs and brisket are tender and sweet. The fried catfish is moist and flavorful. A wide variety of... More

Your eyes will be bigger than your stomach. Even the regular size bbq is big. When I go I get a salad and a bbq with slaw on it and it makes me so full. I have tried to eat the meals but am unable to eat it all.
