The price of breakfast went up and they charge for a drink to. Now you can get a better breakfast anywhere else for the price. At least if they had hash browns it would help. Won't be back.

I ordered baby back ribs and received what looked like huge spare ribs. When I asked the waiter to exchange them for what I had ordered he said "those are baby back ribs, they are just from a steroidal pig! Yuk

I'm so glad Big Bubba's is gone and now there's a decent place to eat at now. At Ethel Red's (also in Lemorre,Ca.) you walk in and Order, grab a cup, and get a drink, then sit wherever you want. When they call your number just raise your hand and they bring it to you. They will also do refills... More

It has closed and turned into a place called Ethel Red's The bucking bull is gone but don't worry the noisy unattended children remain shrieking up and down the wooden stairs. I couldn't make it all the way to be seated.

I ordered the tri tip sandwich and he got the tri tip plate. I don't know about how hot he's food but when we finally got it my sandwich... More

Worst ribs I've had in awhile. Way over priced. "Tourers mesquite grill" down the road has way better BBQ. And their prices are better. My drink was 25 dollars and their was nowhere near enough alcohol for my liking.

The attractive outdoor decor of the building got our attention so we decided to try it. I was impressed by the inside decor as well with a huge treehouse in the middle of the restaurant to entertain the kiddies while mom and dad enjoy a peaceful meal. It seemed to do the trick as there were less crying children than... More
