Hi! I ate solo at Big Bubba's after driving up from Southern California. I ordered a 16 oz beer, and a tri-tip salad. The salad was enormous. I could not finish the salad or the beer. The server, while friendly, should have told me that they have half portions (which would have saved me money, and would make more sense... More

It is a good place to get a burger or a tri-tip sandwich but the ribs are always a little tough and the chicken a little dry. The volume of the never-ending country music could be toned down a little.

Big Bubbas is consistent. The beers are cold and the food is great. The service is always top notch and its location next to the holiday Inn is quite convenient. Even though the name is BBQ.. it has a diverse fair that all can enjoy.

The BBQ sauce and meat were very good-tasting. You can get a free meal on your birthday. Service OK. Beef ribs not very meaty, but lots of them. Music so loud and distasteful I will not go there again.

The burger came close to raw. We realized after it had arrived, that the waitress hadn't asked our preference for how the meat should be cooked. My salad had too much water floating at the bottom of the bowl. I got a French Dip, and the meat had a bit too much stringy gristle for my taste. At first I... More

We had an early lunch on Saturday. The place was quiet. Staff was friendly and the place was clean. Had the BBQ pulled pork, very good, the bread was soft and fresh but not mushy. The home made chips are to die for. Definitely will stop in again whe in town or just passing through.

Great food, great service. Looks like a cute place to have a birthday party for kids. Had the mini combo & took half back to the hotel, so much food.

Just around corner from our motel. Great atmosphere, quite noisy, food good although my spouse had way to much sauce on his half rack BBQ ribs but said they were tender. My choice of Bubba's mini combo was very tasty. A nice funky place to go and not have to drive to from motel.

Any eatery that has big, bubba and bbq in it's name ought to have brisket!! Sorry, but I think that is a universal law.

The restaurant was within walking distance to the hotel. The food and drinks were amazing! We arrived a few minutes before closing but the staff did not mind. They were all great. We had been on the road all day and it was very welcoming. We will be going back on our next road trip
