Great atmosphere - loud/typical bar. Had the haystack burger and hubby had their special Goonies burger with pulled pork and fried egg... both were excellent! Large beer selection as well. Can't go wrong. Brought the kids ages 9,6,4. One had the fish and chips, another the burger and the little one a PB&J sandwich. No complaints and no leftovers. Never... More

They have everything from mexican, burgers and American entries. We had the veggie quesidalla, chicken Thai tacos , buffalo wrap and chicken... More

I wish I had seen a prior review of the "burrito". It was terrible and dry...All flour tortilla and a tiny bit of rice and beans with a miniscule amount of cheese. I note a previous poster mentioned same thing, and the manager replied he should have ordered a burger. Well, I wanted a burrito, and it is on the... More

Previous poster said same, and management response was he should have ordered a burger. Well, the burrito is what sounded good... More

hmmmm....I am sorry but you have the exact same verbiage as Laura E. Are you Laura E or Maddy E.? Being that we are your one and only review I am very interested in trying to get this straightened out. Being that Bubba's has been around for 14 years with a line always out the door, we do occasional make... More

Fresh, delicious food, and a menu that has tons of options that are hard to choose from (especially breakfast!). Really friendly service too. A go-to spot in TC!!!

Ok, so staff is great, very attentive and personable. Now down to the meat of it (had to). The burgers are AMAZING! So many options, styles. So much flavor, juicy, and topping are plentiful. I had the rodeo burger (I think), friend had the veggie burger. Both were so good. Great selection of beer on tap too. Side salad was... More

While on vacation recently while in Traverse I had dinner there and also breakfast. Both meals were fabulous. The staff is friendly and efficient. You may have a little wait if going in the evening. I will definitely visit again.
