We both had the BBQ and pig chicken plate with coleslaw and potato salad. The bbq was good but not one of the best that we have tried. The chicken was dry with not much flavor. both the slaw and potato salad were bland.

Loved it! You can taste the wood-fired flavor in the pork. Nicely sauced to add the delicious Eastern NC vinegar-red pepper flavor. The BBQ chicken has an amazing light, but creamy full flavor sauce. We enjoyed the tangy and sweet coleslaw and golden hushpuppies, but...More

The pork at Wilber's is fantastic and all of the sides are delicious. The hush puppies are hot, crispy, and plentiful. The staff was friendly and the service was fast. I recommend getting a big glass of ice cold sweet tea.
