Description: Bubba's is only an hour’s drive from spectacular Yellowstone National Park. If you're looking for mouth-watering, hickory-smoked meats, look no further than Bubba's Bar-B-Que. Enjoy in the restaurant, or take it with you for picnics and road trips -- our meats are awesome alone or in sandwiches. We’re sure to have something to satisfy your hunger whether you’ve been hiking all day or are going to the rodeo in the evening. Not only do we have the best bar-b-que in Wyoming, but we also have sandwiches, burgers, steaks, an awesome salad bar, and great choices for the kids. Don't forget about our homemade desserts and generous selection of micro-brews.

“Just okay for our family”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Not a lot of choices in Cody so not sure how good this restaurant is on a relative scale. The food was okay, the service was okay, and the atmosphere was okay.

“Yummy prime rib and sides”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We stopped at Bubba's late one evening. We were seated quickly and our orders were taken right away. The service was very friendly. Our server took several pictures of us and was very patient and friendly when our camera was gave us problems. Another server noticed the difficulties and stopped to help with the picture. Shared a few laughs with them. The decor is cute, with red "bandana" curtains and table clothes, wagon wheels and lots of wood.
The food was delivered fairly quickly. The prime rib that my mother and I ordered was very nicely done. Cooked just right. My dad and husband enjoyed their meals very much. Our daughter ordered the salmon and noted it was a bit on the dry side, but still good. There is a nice variety of the sides to choose from. Corn on the cob and handmade bbq chips are what we ordered and the corn was particularly yummy. The chips were good too. The portions are large and the cost is reasonable.
I would stop here again if we visit Cody.

“Keep driving”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Smelled great the moment we entered the restaurant. Seated quickly and (Cass)? Took our drink order. When she got to the table with the drinks she couldn't remember which was the diet (Tip, put a lemon in it) and told us to figure it out. That was the last drink I received. The meal was average and my half barbecue chicken was dry and instead of checking on us she was busy busting tables. A total of 15 minutes sitting there waiting for a check that was suppose to be split but when she finally brought the check she said she couldn't do it. What a waste of time that was! I have never not left a tip before in my life but you need to understand how important customer service is and if you don't than find another line of work. Check on your customers and make sure they are at a minimum receiving basic service!

“Good food, reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

It wasn't fancy, but the portions were large and well prepared. I wish I had had the salad bar, which looked awesome.

“Nothing exciting . . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The food was ok, but not outstanding. I had pulled pork that was a little on the dry side but was good when the sauce was added. My husband had the spare ribs that were also just so-so. As others have mentioned, the beans were very good! You got a good amount of food and the staff was very friendly. It was not bad food, it was just not something special in our book . . .
