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.

On business and looking for BarBQ establishments that are not chain stores and came across Sibleys. My associate and I ordered the Southern Sampler with sliced Brisket and Ribs. The Brisket was excellent, limited fat and very moist with a good hickory smoke ring. I ate most of it without any sauce! The ribs were delicious as well with good... More

When to lunch and had the bbq sandwich combo and wife had the same. The sandwiches were possible the best I've had. The sides we had were fries, coleslaw, beans, and hush puppies. They were all good but the hush puppies. They were the frozen type, just wishing they were home made. All in all it's worth it

Have visited Sibley's several times, the barbque is very good, but I do prefer some other places over Sibleys. Service was good, friendly, this is a family owned business. They now have a small place in the Tractor Museum in Colonial Heights

I wouldn't say the food was terrible, however it was not my preferred style of BBQ. I ordered the pulled pork platter with mac-n-cheese and greens. The pork & greens had a vinegar taste which was a turn off for me. I prefer the St. Louis or Texas smoked style over the No Carolina style. The staff was friendly, attentive... More

I do not recommend Sibley's Bar-B-Q because the brisket that I ordered was not fresh. It was rubbery because it was reheated in the microwave. The potato salad have too much mayo and mustard. Portions were very small for the high price for overrated BBQ. Seating and parking is limited.
