Nice smoky pulled pork without sauce, which you can add from various sauces at your table. Serving sizes are ample, and we always have leftovers. Extensive menu with something for everyone. Clean, nice staff, delicious food. Great semi- self serve restaurant. ...and oh, those baked beans...!

This joint used to be very good...but it has changed for the worse: waiters try very hard but quality isn't there any more, baby ribs were terrible (dry, not falling off the bone, overcooked, they are perhaps using another supplier or cook), fried beans so so sweet. When we complained to the waitress, she said she was going to report... More

The food is delicious! However, when I glanced into the kitchen and saw my food getting nuked in the microwave...I became very disappointed. Nothing like Kellers...where they warm the food on the grill.

Always a favorite place to eat when in the Orlando area. The pulled pork has just enough smoke and bbq flavor and the beef brisket is delicious. Meals are priced well. it's a great value.

BUT, the customer service is so awful till I don't want to wait for the food. Half of the business is getting people in the door. We stood in front of the... More

We tried the sliced lamb sandwich platter as a light lunch between two of us shopping for Thanksgiving delicacies the weekend before. We were very happy with our selection and the consistent quality of a very special offering by the folks at Bubbalou's. We will be back for the exact same thing soon.

Best sausage in central FL. Friendly staff, great lunch place. If adventurous, try fried Mac and cheese.
