Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Que

Nation

This legendary Decatur barbecue restaurant dates back to 1925, when Big Bob Gibson (he was 6'4") started cooking meats from a hand-dug pit in his backyard and serving it from a make-shift oak plank table. The family-run business -- currently helmed by the four generation -- has been on the slow-cooked fast-track ever since, forming a competitive cooking team and winning 10 world championships along the way. You're here for a few things: smoked chicken in white sauce, hickory-smoked pulled pork and beef brisket, St. Louis spare ribs, and crispy chicken wings tossed in your choice of mild or spicy barbecue sauce.
