“..you want to feel bad but it's just too good. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Just thinking about writing this review is making me drool.

Bubbacue is awesome. The portions are great, the prices are reasonable and the brisket is to die for.

A little tip, if it's your first time...don't get the puller pork, the brisket is so much better...it has a much deeper flavour.

A real pig out spot.

“Great BBQ in Belfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

My wife & I tried this place 29th October as we had heard different people on Facebook recommending it.I must say that I was glad I called as the food was great & the staff very friendly.
We decided to go for the Pork Ribs platter which came with sides of coleslaw, corn bread & fries.The portions were great & we had trouble finishing our plate/dish. They served bottled beer as well which was a bit pricey at £3.75 a bottle but it is imported beer(Brooklyn Lager,Anchor Steam,etc). I will definitely be calling back again & it is a welcome addition to the Belfast food scene.

“Great value excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Love this place! simple concept. great food. always a queue! As a wheelchair user I'm restricted to where I can sit in the restaurant as it's quite cramped, but it's not usually a problem, the table turn around it generally quite quick and giving funny looks to people sitting over their empty platters helps quite a bit. Def a great place for warming comfort food and a decent price, just don't plan on settling in for the evening as someone will want your table :D

“Proper pig out spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

With a choice of Pulled pork, brisket, chicken and sauages this place is a must every once in a while. I think I would always go for a platter rather than a sandwich.

“Mmmmmmmm cake and meat....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

There's often a que to get in here but it moves very quickly so you'll soon get a seat and your food is always served in less than 5 mins to your table. I love the pulled pork plater with Mac and cheese, delish! The traditional lemonade is also lovely. I had the chicken once and it was a little red close to the bone which put me off but I've been here maybe 5 times since and everything has always been lovely. The corn bread is also amazing, like having a cake and meat in the same meal! Mmmmm cake and meat. If you're really hungry this is a great place to go, I always leave feeling full and sleepy. The staff are always very friendly too and there's a nice atmosphere inside.
