You`'ve got to go here at least once for some of the best BBQ food I've ever had. Atmosphere was great, the place was buzzing..

I went on a Friday afternoon and waited in line to give the bartender my order. If I expected average customer I would have walked out. However, I loved the overpriced brisket and the small serving of coleslaw and okra. I might even go back some year.

The service was good ,but the portions were on the small side. The atmosphere was fine many different ages ,a nice variety of drinks and food selections,I just wasnt crazy about the BBQ. I suppose it is each person's opinion.

Stubb's was highly recommended. The food was tasty and a decent value. The sides left a lot to be desired. But it was easy to get to and I was able to park my car2go car on the street in designated parking!

This is a funky downtown restaurant with wonderful food. The beef brisket was thinly sliced, very moist and flavorful. The sausages were also excellent.

I went here a while back and had some of the best BBQ I've ever had. The combo deals are where it's at. For the money I always stick to those.

I had heard of Stubb's Bar BQ and had to see for myself. We had the sliders and a pound of brisket...both excellent. The brisket was so tender. Loved the sauce and got a couple of bottles to take home.its not fancy but it's fun. If you're a Johnny Cash fan you will really enjoy. The decor is the man... More

I have to say that the service was less than stellar. not bad, just not that great. The meats (brisket, chicken and ribs) were a tad bland. The pulled pork was very good. The mac & cheese needed salt and the cole slaw was vinegary. The drinks are huge so you will not need a refill. There are so many... More

Incredibly good. Memorable. Just flat out awesome. Hubby was talking about it for weeks. We see the name Stubb's and he stares into space with a blissed out expression.
