We went to Bubba's for the $5 burger and beer special. The restaurant was very crowded and we had to wait for awhile.

Been there many times and food is always great. Also if your order is in before 5:30pm you get 33% off your bill. They also have been chosen by locals to have the best burger in Traverse City

It is by and far the best Burger in the USA. The Bubba Burger is to drive to Traverse for. It is always busy so be prepared to wait a little especially in the summer months .

Burger was good, but not the size I expected (smaller). Service was... More

I have been to Bubba's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The price and quality and quantity of food is great for the price. They also have a very good bottled beer selection
