Pretty good BBQ

Had dinner with my family here last night. I had a pulled pork sandwich which was excellent! Not at all fatty like some of the other BBQ places I've been. I enjoyed the food and the mom and pop atmosphere. Good service as well. I would definitely recommend this little place.

If you have a party of 5 or more this isn't the place for that. It's doesn't have a large seating area. I had a party of 15 and 13 of us were there and they wouldn't seat us until everyone had arrived. Had a cheeseburger and it was good however my son had a chicken sandwich and the chicken... More

We were trying to find a place to eat and kill some time before our room was ready for check-in. Saw Bubba's and thought that was worth a shot. Problem was we had our little 6 pound dog with us and we really didn't want to eat in the car. I went inside to ask for a menu to take... More

We stumbled on this little place one afternoon. Looks like a shack, but looks can be deceiving. The food was very good with friendly service. Don't hesitate to eat here.

Haven't been to Bubba's in several years. Although the food was good, it wasn't what it used to be. Ribs were good but the rub was uneven. You would have portions of the rib that were spot on then get a large bite of spices piled up. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich which was good. Will always love... More

We arrived around 12:30 for lunch. The food was good but not anything special. The decor was really neat.

We visited on a Friday evening with our 2 teenage daughters. They ordered burgers and fries (typical huh, lol) and my husband and I ordered the brisket plate. We were highly disappointed. Their coleslaw leaves much to be desired. Overwhelmingly tasted like mayonnaise. The brisket, while tender, needed more seasoning. It was just bland. The highlight of the brisket plate... More

The food was really good, the portion of barbecue was a lot so thats a plus. The only complaint was just one refill of your tea or soft drink. So we got water lol. The waiter was nice but seemed like he was having a bad day. We're going to bring my mom next time, she loves her some barbecue.... More
