Foursquare Tips

  • Excellent barbecue. The white sauce is the best and you must try it!
  • This Dixie restaurant doesn't skimp on dessert it bakes pies fresh daily. Our favorite: coconut cream. Chocolate meringue and lemon icebox have devoted followings, too.
  • Chicken with white sauce named one of "Huntsville's 20 Most Distinctive Dishes" by Go magazine. Big Bob Gibson's is world-famous for its white sauce, which adds a slightly tangy taste to the meat.
  • No complaints. Have the potato with BBQ on top.
  • Have a piece of their homemade pie. It's almost as good as the barbecue!!!
  • Turkey potato, pork platter, brisket sandwiches, brunswick stew, tater salad
  • I had the brisket, but I tried my husband's ribs and that was my favorite part of the meal - try both!
  • Are you ready to completely pig out on great food at this years Festival? Chris Lilly and Ford Fry will be at the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival May 30-June 2, 2013! You won't want to miss it!
  • Best chicken potatoes in the white sauce yum
  • Ribs, brisket, bbq sauce.
  • It's a family tradition. Every time we visit Alabama from Michigan, we have to stop at Big Bob Gibson's. It was my grandma's favorite.
  • They have the most amazing chocolate pies you'll ever eat.
  • Pork sandwich
  • The chicken is amaaaazing. The brisket was dry.
  • Ribs and loaded potato

  • Food Networks #4 Best BBQ - Smoked Chicken doused in original tangy white sauce
  • Brisket, pork, taters, there is nothing bad on this menu.
