W stopped for lunch on a Monday afternoon. The place was packed. We had a table in the corner but the whole room was loud and it was hard to carry on a conversation. I had the lunch special which was a ham and cheese sandwich and a bowl of sausage gumbo. The gumbo was good with lots of okra... More

We had the jalapeño burger substituted with a chicken breast, Traverse City salad and sweet potato tots. All were very good. Nice atmosphere with good service.

As many other reviewers have stated, Bubbas has really, really tasty burgers. Mine had bacon, haystack onions and other delicious toppings. We also enjoyed a side of sweet potato tots, highly recommended!

We visited Bubba's our first year visiting Traverse City in 2013. We loved their food and really enjoyed the atmosphere. This year, we had to go back. Everything was just as great if not better than the first year we visited. Our server was wonderful and was taking care of a huge table and still made sure our drinks were... More

Food and service were both just okay. I would not go out if my way to visit Bubbas again. We went for dinner and both my food and my husbands tasted just like standard bar food. And neither dish was hot, you could tell they sat at the window for a bit. There are plenty of great restaurants in TC... More

We had great food at very reasonable prices for a resort area. The wait outside of about 20-30 minutes told us it was going to be good. I had the Spanish quesadilla, which I felt was excellent. They have a very extensive selection of bottled craft beer. THis restaurant is an exceptionally easy walk from the Holiday Inn West Bay... More

A friend of mine suggested going to Bubbas and getting their hamburger. He said it was one of the best restaurant burgers he's had. So we went and I agree, it was a really good burger and I would go there again. It's a bar like atmosphere but family frendly.

Once again Bubba's served up a great burger. What a surprise to have gotten there right at 3pm and receive great discount for early bird (was it 20%?), plus it was happy hour all day Thursday for $1 off the beers. This is my second time eating here. It won't be my last.
