Great BBQ!

Down to earth and not fancy which is great but has the best BBQ and friendly staff! Loved the hot links there especially!

We planned a camping trip to Eureka but when we got there it started raining so we had to wait in the car while my husband set up the tent and before we realize it was dark, my son was getting tired and hungry and there was no possible way to cook with the weather like that so we hit... More

We knew that services would be cut back in the off season, but still needed a meal on a Monday night. I had not seen a review on this place but it was there and smelled good. If you have a taste for pulled pork and an extraordinarily generous portion this is your place.

The ribs and sauce were great. The service was very friendly. The restaurant was simple but clean. Would definitely return and recommend to others.

We have been going to Eureka Springs for many years and tried a variety of restaurants for lunch. When we found Bubba's, we go back during our yearly visit in October. I usually order the small BBQ sandwich as it is plenty of food for me. Men might want the large order, or the ribs. The sides are tasty! The... More

Wow. My partner and I stopped in on a whim and we were very pleased. Friendly, quick service. We purchased the "Ribs for two" and it was an entire rack of ribs, 4 sides, and rolls. WAY too much food for us. And the ribs were amazing. Only thing I can think of that was bad was that it was... More

The staff was very friendly and we had excellent service. The ribs were dry and the pork was medeoker. Although we had good service we wouldn't go back to eat.

I was not impressed with the food or the prices or the service. The food shall I say was mediocre not what I was expecting for all the raves it had received.

This is the first time we had Bubba's but it won't be the last. We had the dinner for two which included a rack of ribs, baked beans, cole slaw and ciabatta bread. We did take out and it was literally ready in five minutes. The ribs were cooked to perfection. Crispy coating of smoked meat on the outside; tender... More
