Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q Restaurant Review

: In 1925, Bob Gibson nailed oak planks to a large sycamore in his backyard and started cooking barbecue. Now the fourth generation of the family continues delighting Decatur diners. Part of the fun is saucing the meat as you like from the array offered. White sauce flecked with pepper, first made here, was designed for chicken, but it's tasty on pork too. Other sauces include a tangy red sauce, a peppery vinegar sauce and a mustard-based sauce. A dry rub also is available. Creamy potato salad accompanies the usual sides of slaw, baked beans and potato chips. Smoked turkey and salads are good for those watching waistlines. But save room for a slice of coconut or pecan pie. No alcohol is served.
