Never miss a chance to eat here while in town. Best BBQ in NWA plus it is a landmark in the city. All the locals eat here. Ribs are as good as I have ever hsd. Service is always good and it has a very casual atmosphere.

Have eaten at Bubba's for 25 years! Love it. More parking round back, don't forget. Delish BBQ and the beans are incredibly yummy.

I've been going to Bubba's for 15 years at least. They are famous for BBQ ribs. The ribs are great and if you like french fries, get a basket of fries. You'll feed at least 2 people out of a basket of fries.

Your typical hole in the wall BBQ joint. Food was fast and fresh. Wait staff was great. They have a variety of foods to choose from. Small parking lot though, inside was cozy as well.
