I have eaten at Big Bubba's a few times and the food is average. Nothing wrong with it but nothing that makes it stand above any other bbq either. Service is mediocre at best. Prices are premium. For what they charge for a fountain soda you should get to keep the glass it is served in. I rate everything based... More

Going here was like an event. It was a large Lincoln Log type building. Inside was a definite western theme complete with a couple of old west style jail cells to eat in. There was live music that wasn't too loud and it was appropriate for the atmosphere There were many combination meals to choose from like beef/pork ribs in... More

We love Big Bubba's. Great for the whole family. You have to order their home made potato chips. We all love them. Great BBQ chicken, ribs, beef. We have tired them all and love it. Their Taco Tuesday is the best.

You have to stop here and try the ribs. Hands down the best BBQ in this part of Cali. Tender and well smoked is how we would describe our meal. We hand the 4 ribs combo which was fantastic!!!

Great food, great service. Servers went out of their way to split our bill 5 ways. Very solid BBQ dishes and sauce.

This place was a little confusing; they had a full sit-down bar and live music (which was great & adult-oriented with a lot of adult language going on), but was still full of families & diner-like. We were seated in the middle and it was a bit uncomfortable. the food was ok and pricey. we had an overall ok experience.... More

Our family place a take out order. The waitress that helped us was nice. We told her how many Pork Ribs we wanted and she helped us figure out what selection to make. When we got back to the motel we had the 2 dinners of 4 ribs each but one BBQ sauce was spicy (it curled your hair) and... More

Not for the faint of heart.,the portions are large. The staff is a lot of fun and to little line dances during the evening. If you want to ride an electronic Bull they have one of those too. Fun Place and the food is pretty good too.

I ate here twice this last trip! Both times, I enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and great service! I had the tri-tip, which was excellent, the first visit, and the BBQ chicken salad the second time. Both food choices were full of flavor and satisfying. We sat in the outdoor deck and enjoyed the warm summer evening. The servers were... More

The place was quiet about 4 people there. We got the pulled pork which wad good but you could taste the ketchup in the sauce. A bit too sweet for my taste. The beer was cold but there wasn't anything special to rave about. Famous Dave's is much better...
