Real BBQ

Great portions. They have an on site smoke house for all the meat. It is authentic. Tough to access due to local construction, but worth the trouble.

Our plates were brought to our table, my-oh-my were they loaded with great smelling meat. Let me tell you, from a person who mostly eats only chicken I found the “World Champion Pulled Pork Shoulder” at Bubb’s Grub very delectable, succulent and Mmmmmmmm! There are three different kinds of sauces at the table for your liking. I cleaned my whole... More

Raised on Kansas City BBQ here. Nice surprise while visiting Arizona. Seems to have been there long time. Real friendly, crowded, great food, great service, especially for how busy there were. Owner checking on the experience. Would definitely go back. Brisket melts in your mouth. Not expensive.

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 on BBQ sauces. We... More

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
