Great local restaurant!

Don't let the outside fool you the inside is very nice. A western themed BBQ place. We stopped on the way back from Biosphere 2 on a Tuesday afternoon about 3:30 no one else was there which for us is usually a "don't stop" however we had been in the area at a usual meal time and the place... read more

While visiting friends in Oro Valley, AZ, they insisted on taking us to a place where BBQ meets the West. Bubb's Saloon and Texas BBQ Grill was the place. We arrived on a week night, and while road construction was underway, which made their parking lot into a maze and mess. But once inside the fun began. Lots of people,... More

Looking for a good BBQ in the area and this wasn't it. The atmosphere looked cool but unfortunately so was the food. The drinks came out quick and were ok margaritas We had brisket and pulled pork and both were cold! Would have sent it back but our server did not return to check on us until it came time... More

We go to Bubb's once or twice per year. It is reliably average. Not the best BBQ in town, but a very nice atmosphere. I had the ribs and my wife had the two meat plate. Kids had a cheese burger and mac-n-cheese. The ribs were OK, but a bit over done. My wife's was OK, but seemed a bit... More

Out for a drive, we went to Bubb's Grub for lunch after hearing several friends talk this restaurant. Having never had walleye, I ordered this fishit. The fish was very well prepared, the flesh moist with a slightly sweet flavor and the breading crisp with no trace of oil. Husband thoroughly enjoyed his batter-dipped cod. Service was friendly and the... More

Cole, the server recommended the pork ribs. The half rack was just the right satisfying amount. Two sides were included, as southern as you could get. Beer was cold and the settng is western. Very inexpensive. Go for it.

I've been to Bubb's Grub a couple of times and the food is always very good. The people who run the restaurant, as well as the staff they hire, are excellent. Bubb's is located on Oracle Rd., on the extreme north side of Tucson. If you want a moderate sized meal, both the beef brisket sandwich and the patty melt... More

Gosh darn it...this place went totally down hill. Food is still good, prices went way up, and the portion size is ridiculously small! I was so hungry afterwards, I actually went home to make a sandwich.
