Generous serving for a take out order. We had the bbq chicken, ribs, beans and slaw. All was superb. Service was fast and friendly. Would definitely go back if in the area.

The food is great! This is a quaint little place with great BBQ. What sets them apart from other BBQ places is their fries. They are not frozen, they are freshly made and wonderful!

Great BarBQ joint ! Sit where you want and the service is quick and friendly. Large portions of pulled pork and great sauce at the table. Sandwiches are served with chips, spring for the fries ! Oh and don't miss the sweet tea ! Perfect ratio of sugar to tea.

I'm a bbq fanatic. I compete and I am a certified KCBS judge. I was disappointed in this place. Maybe my expectations were too high. It looked like a great place from the outside and even inside. The staff was a let down. Most of the waitresses were behind the counter playing with their phones. Our waitress had no personality,... More

It was ok BBQ. It was good, but I wouldn't call it world famous. The service was great. The decor and atmosphere were good. The Pulled pork and brisket were just lacking flavor and were dry.

My wife and I both had pulled pork sandwiches which were good. The portions were generous as well. They came with cole slaw described as enough to top the sandwich. This was true but barely. Not very tasty either. Probably had rated higher but we were headed out of town and ordered my grandson a drink. They brought it in... More

The casual atmosphere, the friendly staff and the EXCELLENT food. The Pulled pork sandwich is awesome and the sauce in the small glass bottle will make it better. The chips and salsa are better when you ask for the CUBAN salsa, it will spice things up. Always has different specials also, so you are not locked into just BBQ. I... More

I recently rode my motorcycle across Arkansas to Memphis and back, had great BBQ in several places, however on my return trip I stopped at an old favorite; Bubba's BBQ in Eureka Springs and it was outstanding! I have been going to Bubba's for many years and they never fail to produce great BBQ and I had great service from... More

My wife and I first ate at Bubba's 21 years ago when we were on our honeymoon in Eureka Springs. Every time we visit Branson we try to take a day trip to Eureka Springs just to have lunch at Bubba's. I've eaten BBQ at the best Shacks in the Midwest and Bubba's is still the best. See my photo... More

The atmosphere leaves much to be desired, old drab by diner look. We were waited on promptly and food came out quickly. The food was good. I have had better. Our credit card was not returned when checking out, and we didn't notice until the next day. It gets crowded up in the corner during check out. We called them... More
