“Big Bob Gibson's”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Dining room staff was very friendly and accomadating. Baked Potatoes are huge and my wife usually takes half of it back to the hotel for a snack later in the day. Ribs were very good, not dried out and more than to insure you didn't leave hungry. Pies are excellent. Portions are more than one person can eat and we've never had a bad meal there.

“Overrated”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

If I had to sum up Big Bobs in one word it would be Overrated. All of those trophies they have doesn't transfer into the food you get in the restaurant. I have had much better BBQ at lots of other places in Alabama. The best thing they have is their potatoes. The worst thing they have is their Ribs, they are a sad excuse.

The choice of sides is laughable. If you don't like bake beans, potato salad or cole slaw forget it.

Service is hit or miss. If you go when they are really busy forget it.

“Drive Thru Employees Need An Attitude Adjustment!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Almost every time we drive thru we get hateful employees that appear to be pissed at the world! When we added pie to the order, the waitress turned to the register and said [--]. While we were waiting the lady at the window ate chips and licked her fingers......,,.gross. This was the day before Easter. Big Bobs your food is wonderful. You need help hiring employees.

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Had the brisket and ribs. Both were excellent, perfectly seasoned, moist and tender. The coleslaw was very finely chopped which was different but it was good. Definitely try the white sauce. It's not just for chicken.
