Rib Tips are the ends that are cut off when butchering a St. Louis-style spare rib. Chicago-style BBQ utilizes these scraps into rib tips. When done right, they are like the “burnt ends” of a brisket. The Big Bib BBQ does them just right. They...More

We had the rib tips plate and the turkey plate. The meats were delicious--very moist and flavored with a very tasty rub. I tried a couple of the barbecue sauces on the table but honestly the meat didn't need any help.

Very good BBQ. Brisket was moist, sausage had flavor and the pulled pork was soft. Unfortunately they ran out of ribs so we didn't get to try them. Price was average. Plenty of outside seating.
