Visited Memorial Parkway location. Had take-out. 1/4 chicken was tasty however is dry without white sauce. Cannot recommend the peach cobbler. The worst taste ever...low calorie sweetner.

I've been going to Gibson's since the early 1970s and I have fond memories of their beef bbq and their cream pies. After I graduated college, I moved to NJ and now my only chance for Gibson's is when I visit my family. It is a must visit every time. This time I had the beef bbq loaded stuffed baked... More

I ate at Gibson's tonight after colleagues highly recommended the food and recommended that I save room for pie for dessert. They were correct on both counts. I had a large BBQ platter. The pulled pork was good but would have gone down better with a cold beer. There was none to be had at this restaurant. The pie is... More

This place to me is loaded baked potato heaven!!! You receive a very large potato, loaded with your favorite choice of meat, whether it's chicken, pork or beef. In addition, you have sour cream, butter and the famous Gibson sauce that you can pour over your steaming hot delicious potato. One bite places me into "Hog Heaven"!!!

So, I'm British and a bit of a foodie. The food was fine, going on good. The salad was much more than I expecting and actually really pretty good. The food was fine, but it was the sauces that made it. I wouldn't go there everyday, but essential to understand the culture of the South. The staff were just there,... More

Service has always been excellent. I usually get the large pork plate with onion rings and fried okra. Always cooked perfectly. Also, get a slice of pie. They have great pecan pies.

The service was good. I had the large sampler with pork, beef, fried okra and potato salad. The meat had very little smoke flavor which was very disappointing. The turkey was incredibly moist but I had to put some sauce on it for any real BBQ flavor. The okra was a little overfried. The potato salad was run of the... More

Although I'm not originally from the south, I've been here long enough to have a feel for good BBQ by now, and Gibson's is by far my favorite spot in Huntsville. Like most really good BBQ joints, it's a no-frills dining experience. Food is served on plastic plates and in little baskets on top of checkered tablecloths. But your server... More

With April being free Pie month at Bob Gibson's BBQ on Mondays & Tuesdays, this was worth a visit. My hopes & expectations were met, and my taste buds were happy. An overstuffed baked potato with butter, sour cream & bacon bits and topped with turkey? Superb! I only wish that I had asked for some chopped scallions as the... More
