I went to big bibs yesterday the meal was outstanding I had chicken and ribs with green beans and sweet potatoes casserole. Everything was delicious but the sweet potato casserole was my favorite.

Just got curbside pickup from there for a nicer than usual lunch for my family. (during the pandemic) . They had a great staff of servers coming out to your car to take your order, payment and bring your food. I had to wait a...bit, but so worth it. We got a pound of lean brisket, pound of ribs, large pinto and large green beans. Green beans were better once mixed with the pinto beans. I spent sort of a lot for lunch, but it is less expensive once you compare to some of the other popular bbq in the area (excluding BM of course!)More

Casual eatery but delicious smoky barbeue. Gave us a sample of brisket that was very tender but we chose ribs for lunch. Only thing wrong was we had to remind them of our French fry order which didn't come till ribs were eaten but they...brought more of brisket to make up for it. Would certainly eat there again if we are traveling thru area and would recommend to anyone who likes smoky bbq.More

This is where locals go. A small place that is probably jam packed when weather isn’t 42 degrees. We were greeted promptly and they took time to explain the menu, our options and made terrific recommendations. The rib dinner with two sides was a great,...and not heavy, meal. 3 different BBQ sauces on the table. Casual dining. Great food.More

Casual dining. Very family friendly. Sweetest staff ever. Definitely there to cater to their customers Now for the BBQ: everything was delicious. We tried the: pulled pork, brisket, sausage, baby back ribs, sweet potato casserole, baked potato casserole, collard greens, potato salad, pinto beans. At...the table their are 4 bbq sauces. All are delicious, but my new favorite is tangy golden. Brisket and pulled pork, tender moist and delicious. Baby back ribs were meaty tender and delicious The sides were all incredible. Greens have pieces of turkey leg in them, delicious. Can’t go wrong here. Prices are excellent.More

Service was adequate, although there was a depressed mood at the order counter. My complaint is directly related to the ribs. I have tried ribs all across Texas, and usually the taste will vary, the bbq Sauce is unique to each establishment, and the meat...will slide off the bone if properly prepared. I purchased both beef & pork ribs since it was my first visit. A knife had to be used to remove the meat and the sauce sucked. Ultimately the ribs were cooked for another hour to make them eatable. We also pulled a bbq sauce from the pantry. I understand if I don’t like there bbq sauce, but when the entire family has a bad opinion, that tells me it really sucks. PS I won’t be going back, if I have to cook the ribs, I may as well buy them at the store.More

A friend recommended this place. It was such a great find. The food is so good. I had the chicken and it was cooked perfectly. Their sauces are all good, complimenting the meat. I had the sweet potato casserole and green beans as sides; both...were delicious. I will definitely be going back.More

Pulled in straight from the airport after doing a little research on the plane, and after narrowing it down to several places, it was the closest. Happy I chose this place as its portion of brisket was spot on. And I don't necessarily mean the...size but more the ratio of lean to moist. My first bite was pretty salty but it hat that melty fat that balanced it out. That was a great first bite. And from the first to the last it was solid. Had the sweet potato as a side and that should have been a dessert. Very tasty! In other matters while I was sitting down a couple of older guys came in and one was grumpy. The staff handled him well despite his best efforts to be a jerk. Well done on the food and the customer service, Big Bib!More

This is a great BarBQ place. The brisket was moist and had a wonderful Smokey taste. The jalapeño sausage is delicious and the turkey superb. You will love the diversity of the four Bar BQ sauces

If you go to The Big Bib, they will give you a sample of their coleslaw and you can decide for yourself if it is the flavor you want/like.
