Wilber's is about worn out and needs a makeover. The traditional vinegar based eastern NC Bbq pork was a little fatty but generous and good. The slaw and hush puppies were delicious. We have stopped here on our way to Florida many times and loved it. It is sad that a great number of old NC Bbq houses are gone.

Fantastic service and food. Their house hot sauce is the best I have ever had for barbecue. I highly recommend a visit.

Worth the short detour into Goldsboro. The pork BBQ was outstanding. Moist and flavorful. I got the BBQ "plate" which is more abundant with BBQ than the sandwich. Coleslaw was also excellent. Put it on your list.

If you want to know the difference between the 2 different kinds of bbq in NC, come here and taste! Great sides, great chicken and, of course, great bbq! Your taste buds will be thanking you.

The best barbeque in the state. My parents eat here every Sunday. Love it, usually we do take out but the service is great.

Wilber's is the place to go for barbecue in the Goldsboro area. The barbecue is very good, cooked the way it should be, they have the best slaw, and the hushpuppies are excellent. You also have to get some chicken gravy to dip your hushpuppies in, it is awesome.

I am a native of Goldsboro for 45 years. I love Barbeque. Many years ago Wilber's was a really great BBQ restaurant . But for some reason thru the years it still has the same flavor which is good but it is really chunky and fat. Which for me is a downside .Now the flavor is excellent . Wilber's has... More

Had the BBQ Plate with Potato Salad. Choose not to eat the Slaw. BBQ was cooked over a wood fire. Very Good. It is worth the drive out of the way.
