Good BBQ, good service, good value

We were new to the area. This looked new and what we thought we were looking for. We were right. Very nice building with tables and booths, well decorated so it looked like a BBQ place should and it delivered. Very good food and service at a fair price. Nice variety on the menu, good options... read more

Bubb is very friendly! Great find! Classy yet cozy atmosphere. Fantastic pulled pork and good mixed drinks hit the spot. Worth a visit!

I go to this restaurant often. For ribs, pulled pork or a ribeye steak Bubbs Grub is very hard to beat. Even if your just in the mood for a burger and fries, his burgers I consider the best in town and I have eaten burgers at many different restaurants here over the last 5 years so that is a... More

We were attending a motorcycle rally nearby and were told about BG. There were eight of us in the party and we were impressed with the atmosphere and service. My wife and I split the Three Meat Plate and the smoke was perfect. Dressed with a little house sauce and "Wow!" there's some good eating. Everyone was happy with their... More

We love Bubb's Grub which is known for their mesquite smoked menu choices! We recently moved to Tucson, Arizona and were introduced to Bubb's Grub by good friends. The restaurant has delicious Bloody Marys and their meats are very high quality. The wait staff are personable and the owner very attentive. We always take our visiting friends and family to...

Bubb's grub has a variety of different options, which makes it easy to please large groups of people. From the world champion pulled pork to their fall off the bone ribs you really can't go wrong. They have a full bar and a few signature drinks--Bubb's Mary is a bloody mary which includes shrimp, a pickle, pepper, and your usual... More

The first time we went here a year ago, service and food were wonderful...this time not so much! Maybe there are new owners or cooks....definitely not worth the time to get there or the money spent. Food is mediocre...nothing to write home about. Definitely stay away from the apple crisp desert! Small portion with a huge price! Stay away!!!!

I went to this restaurant for lunch with a friend. She had been there before for dinner. I had a burger. The meat was delicious. I also purchased a pound of sliced brisket to take home. My husband and I thought it was very good. The prices were reasonable, and the table we had was comfortable. The server was knowledgeable... More

My wife and I just had phenomenal BBQ'd chicken and ribs at Bubb's. Also had cole slaw, steak fries and Mac & Cheese as side dishes - all were off the charts! Definitely rivals Phil's, Famous Dave's and others in San Diego. We visit Tucson/Oro Valley 3-4 times a year. This falls into our "mandatory stop" list. The people are... More
