I love to get the fresh brisket and no other place can touch Big Bob Gibson's. The tea is the BEST over All restaurants in the area. I cannot complain too much about ANYTHING that I ever order.

We got a combination of chickens and pork. Added slaw and baked beans. Every item was superb. Chicken was moist and smoky, pork was tender and flavorful. Sides were satisfying to all. Exceptional!!!

The food has went downhill a bit. Potato was old. Our pulled pork was fatty and dried out. Server was great. Sauces amazing. Big bobs has been a family fave for years but they are resting on their reputation. Platter was skimpy. Pie was wonderful....More

Bbq baked potato is awesome, but the Brunswick stew is not my favorite. Good catering service though

Definitely Delicious! The Lemon pie is amazing and the coconut pie is great also. The BBQ Potato can't be beat.

I've definitely had better chicken at lots of other BBQ restaurants. Good potato salad, but the Cole slaw was...well ...just very unusual. The star of the show if definitely the vinegar based white sauce....very good.

BBG's is always a great place to go. The food is always good, portions are always "healthy" and the service is quick and with a smile. My fav - stuffed baked potato!!!
