The Saturday night choice smoked prime rib is unbelievable!!! There is a reason Bubb's Grub is ranked Number 1 of all local restaurants - the moment you are greeted with a warm sincere smile you will feel relaxed and comfortable in true Tucson style. The service is fast and courteous and the food is the best barbecue around. I love... More

Bubb's is known for it's BBQ. You're in the desert, don't get fish. Get that when you're on the coast. I had a combo plate with pork, brisket, and chicken. The pork and chicken were much better than the brisket, which was a little dry. I would recommend you have the pork. For dessert we had Sundae with Bundt cake... More

At 4pm we sat in the bar to take advantage of Happy Hour, only to find out after getting home that we were charged full price. The pork sliders were good, but we needed to add a lot of sauce so they weren't so dry. The fries were just okay and the coleslaw was lacking. Sufficient parking.

So far we've been there twice, and plan to go back again, but only because it's close, and sadly the only one of it's type in the area. The BBQ meats were cooked well, but the sauces were really lacking. The cod fish was slightly under cooked. The potato salad and cole slaw were both slightly pink and had a... More

The barbecue and sauces are great. The service is friendly and professional. The burnt ends, pulled pork and ribs are all outstanding. Bob's is a winner.

It's wonderful to find a piece of home when traveling. I'm from Wisconsin, and was surprised to find Bubb's Grub from the family that owned Kuglitsch's in New Berlin, Wisconsin. If you're looking for a place to catch Big10 games, their bar is the place...at least five TVs all around. The bloody marys rock...try the Bubb's special bloody mary if... More

The ribs are great nice smokie flavor bone sucking good, the steaks have been overcooked and like rawhide, the chicken is unassuming but tastey, Friday night fish greasy and overbattered, cole slaw bitter and watery

Stopped in for a " Wisconsin fish fry". Could not have been better. The cod was delicious. The breading was exactly like we like it. Service was great, prices reasonable and the drinks were perfect. Would recommend to anyone who loves a Friday Fish Fry.

My first visit to the area recently - great lunch Bar-B-Q food. Returned for the Walleye Pike - - Huge portion & so delicious. Oh, and the Strawberry Daquiri was very yummy as well. Excellent service from a sweet waitress.

Always a good meal at Bubb's. Had the ribeye which was tender and tasted great. They are known for their smoked BBQ. Recommend reservations during snow bird season. Good drink selection - had a very tasty margarita. Service was very good even for a party of 6. Will repeat.
