“Not very good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The ambience at Bubba's puts you in the mood for some BBQ. The place is decorated with lots of pigs and has a homey feel to it. The food itself is just not very good. The ribs were very greasy and little seasoning, leaving them a mushy, flavorless mass. The pulled pork needed lots of sauce since it was pretty dry and had an off putting taste, perhaps from the oven? It was a gassy taste. The brisket was very overdone and only worth a couple of bites. The mac and cheese was greasy and beans lacked flavor. I am glad to have tried it, but will not be back. Perhaps it was because I went on a Saturday and the food just isn’t as fresh.

“Best BBQ in DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

Because I want to see Bubba's in business for a long time, I have decided to rate them on TripAdvisor. Been going here for at least 15 years and quality remains great. Never any fat in their bbq. They have pork, beef and chicken and all is equally good. They let you put the sauce on but they generally have the NC kind as a special as well so you can choose what you want.

Their sides are great including fries (ask for "extra rub") and onion rings as well as collard greens (I'm from south of DC so I know how they're supposed to taste) and baked bean with chunks of pork in them. They also have nice salads and cole slaw.

Just a hole-in-the-wall place but nice and clean - although they have beer on tap they basically are a family place. Main crowd is at lunch but they are open until 9pm so dinner time is pretty open. They also sell meat by the pound and also will cater for you - we had them do my son's engagement party.

Try them out if you are in the Merrifield/Tyson's/Falls Church area and you won't be sorry!

“Not just your normal BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Place is full of pigs -stuffed, dolls, figures and such. Owner takes pride in support community groups. My absolute favorite is the Baked BBQ Beans. Ribs fall off the bone.

“Best BBQ in Falls Church area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

Hands down the best BBQ in the Falls Church area! My friends and I have frequented Bubba's for years now and have NEVER had a bad meal. Prices are friendly, the BBQ sandwiches are great, atmosphere is low-key, and the portions are generous. I'll be a customer as long as they are in business. Don't miss out on this place!

“Good BBQ --extremely kid friendly-skip the cherry pie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

The restaurant is very casual with pig paraphernalia all over the place. It is a "down home" type of place. The BBQ is great with several different sauces to try on each table. Be careful about choosing a dessert. The cherry pie tasted like something from a grocery store.
