My wife and I weren't terribly hungry but I "needed" something to eat. We both settled on the home made white chili. Very, very good homemade dish. Had fun with the waitress and enjoyed our meal. Prices were just a tad more expensive than other places we ate while in Hot Springs... but definitely worth the price. We would go... More

Bubbalu's was recommended by a National Park employee when we visited Hot Springs. He said they served the best burgers in Hot Springs, and we heartily agree because they were delicious! The fries were excellent also. It's a convenient downtown location and a great place to eat.

The couple that serves up bodacious burgers are really in the know when it comes to good food. Their service is beyond compare. Malts and shakes are available along with alcohol for 21 and overs. The fries are served as they are at the Astor in California. Inverted in a paper chute to drain away any oil as you nibble... More

I am really surprised in a good way that this restaurant is still here due to the pricing of the burger but hey, it is worth it! Best burger, except for the Ohio Club in town...especially for people with children. Fries are great, hot dogs good but burgers...wow!

In and out quickly. Picky eater in our party loved her food. Will eat here again. A little pricey, but worth it.

I had a "Classy Dog" and fries for lunch and left very satisfied. I live in Hot Springs and really enjoy eating at the various Downtown Historic District restaurants. For a quick, casual lunch stand type meal BubbaLu's is excellent.

Atmosphere was cute and nostalgic....very retro....very clean. Burgers were pretty average and the fries were very pricey for the portions. We did like them little cones the fries were served in. Overall, an average experience for a tourist lunch.

We went there twice during our week long visit, which oughta tell you something about how good this is, especially with all the dining choices in Hot Springs. Perfect burger, perfect doneness, perfect toasted sourdough buns, all done on the griddle just like in the old days. Just a delicious burger & fries meal: order, eat, repeat!

Very nice burgers and chicken sandwiches. Cozy atmosphere, good tasting food and very accomodating service. We were very hungry after our bath experience across the street and enjoyed our visit.
