they were open on Memorial Day. & had a live guitarist on site.
their BBQ is good. hush puppies are very peppery & their beans are not what you would consider traditional baked beans. mac & cheese was good.
they had one woman running food & bussing tables. I really hope the tip jar on the counter goes to her, because she was working the hardest in the place.

Had the brisket and pulled pork...delicious. Hush puppies were awesome. Fast service and great downtown atmosphere.

Ordered my meal and did not get what I ordered on 5/23/14 at 5:15 pm I made sure to ask the girl at the counter and she stated that I would get that but when plate come I did not get what I asked for and paid for then to make long story short the manager would not make it good and gave no apologies, I was just shorted half my meal with no recourse even from management. He walked off and never even said I am sorry or give me the rest of what I ordered. Will never go back there.

I finally gave Bib's Downtown a try since I had heard so much about their barbecue. I tried the brisket and my husband had ribs. The cost was almost $30 and we had to order at the front and were brought food with plastic utensils. Both proteins were mediocre at best and the sides we chose were not even worth finishing. There were three burnt hush puppies as well as two slices of soggy toast on the plate, which is apparently standard. Drinks are in styrofoam cups and self serve. Busing the tables are also do it yourself, which seems ridiculous for those prices in Winston-Salem. So with so-so food that is better in other places, it seems ridiculous to pay for no service or even silverware. Two thumbs down for this one.

This restaurant has nice upbeat cheerful atmosphere, they even had a gentleman playing music on a guitar when we were in on Saturday around lunch time. The decor is right on for a BBQ restaurant and the service is very good. However the food left a little to be desired which was somewhat pricey. Both the ribs and the smoked chicken were overcooked and somewhat dry. The sides were a different story, with the potato salad and collard greens being very tasty.
