It has been awhile since I had lunch at this restaurant. The owner passed away a while back and I wondered if the food had changed. I was happy to see Bambi was still serving lunch. She greeted me and told me it was good to see me again. The menu has a mix of BBQ, burgers, sandwiches and a... read more

Not great, but ok. An old building with old country things around. Staff was friendly and had a sweet country accent. I can't really brag about the food even though I would like to. It was just ok. We were there for dinner on our way to Biloxi and were staying right down the street. They served beer so my... More

We were in the Chipley area to go to the Seacrest Wolf Preserve and, of course, checked Tripadvisor first. Deciding to try Skins and Bubbas for an early lunch was a good move. I don't get the name, but maybe there's a local story there! We each had a burger- one bacon and cheese with onion rings and the other... More

Some of the best fried chicken you ever tried, besides Mom's. Food is served buffet style with as many trips as you like, to include bread and dessert. I worked in the area for 2 weeks and ate lunch here every day. Always something good to eat!

We were on our way to have dinner here on Sunday February 15th, 2015 and pulled in. Place was all closed up and looked abandoned. Don't know if it's open or not...but it sure didn't look like it...

We stopped in on a Friday night when Prime Rib was on the menu. It was huge and tender. We both had one and better half wasn't able to finish it. One surprise was that it wasn't served with horseradish. The salad bar wasn't spectacular but everything there was fresh and crisp. The baked potatoes were on the harder side... More

I travel to the Chipley area 4-5 times a year and my first stop for a great meal is Skins and Bubba ' s BBQ. The food is great and as one of the chef's say, "made with love". The staff is warm and welcoming. Don't leave the area without a stop to Skins and Bubba's!!

We took the advice of the motel owners and ate at Bubbas. They did not have the steak I desired and i was disappointed with the substitute. I'll give them a pass as it was a Friday night. The salas bar was nice and they reccommended a nice place for breakfast the next morning.

On our way to Falling Water State Park (also in Chipley), we stopped here on a whim after driving by to grab some lunch. We were pleasantly surprised at how affordable the lunch buffet was ($8 for adults and under $4 for kids). The price included salad, entrees, dessert, and a drink, so it was a great value. Also, there... More

We were at Skins & Bubba's a year ago and I gave it an Excellent rating. This time I wasn't as impressed. The catfish was still Excellent...but other things not so much. My husband's shrimp was overcooked and our baked potatoes had hard spots, like when you cook them in a microwave. Also, my potato was not very hot...barely melted... More
