Description: We honor the rich Carolina BBQ tradition of low & slow but unlike many pits you won't find any Bubbas here. Though there is often confusion with our name, our pitmaster Starr Teel and Mike and Lindsay Cromartie in the kitchen are all classically trained chefs. So remember, we're not Hubba Bubba. We're Hubba Hubba as in "Mmmm! Look at that brisket. HUBBA HUBBA!" Our menu features scratch made sauces and classic sides as well as unique seasonal sandwiches, soup, salad and even fish and shrimp on Fridays and Saturdays. And we're ready for anything you can dream up so remember us for catering. For catering, phone: 702-1301 Hubba Hubba Smokehouse is a great stop on a pleasant summer afternoon. Hubba Hubba is about more than just bbq! It's also a great gathering place. It's an informal place to bring a client for lunch, take a break from a busy day and a choice location for entertaining friends old and new at a catered event.

“Fall off the bone BBQ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I was not expecting the quality of food that we got in Styrofoam boxes and plastic containers! I knew it must be good, the lines were long and the place was packed. But the line moved quickly and there were plenty of outdoor tables. I LOVED the bbq ribs. Amazing! And all the sides were great. It smelled so good when we sat down to eat, I forgot to get pictures of the food! We will certainly return next time we visit Ashville.

“A Must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Hubba Hubba Smokehouse is so great! We do it as we road trip for camp each summer. The servings are hearty, you definitely leave full! Never had anything on the menu we didn't like. Their cornbread is more like sweet corn cake. Its also nice that you can order a few fish dishes, too. Wish y'all weren't so far from ATL.

“Must. Stop. Here. Try all the BBQ flavors!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Neat place off the beaten path and really good BBQ (for a girl from Texas comparing it). You stand in a bit of a line, order from a window, eat outside at picnic tables. The ladies running it were really "southern nice" - when I picked up my food order at the other window they genuinely said "Thank you for coming here today. Enjoy!" My favorite BBQ sauce was the tomatillo - probably because it's just so unique! But my friends liked the mustard-based one. They're all good though (house, vinegar, spicy chipotle too). Their hours are a little shorter than your standard restaurant, so pay attention to that before going out of your way to stop there. It's CASH ONLY but they have an ATM available on site.

“Amazing Q”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Had heard alot about Hubba Hubba and had been in the neighborhood several times shopping but had never tried it. BIG MISTAKE!! This place is a gem! It's not a 5-star restaurant, but that's not what you want from a barbeque place. It's a fun destination for lunch (or dinner during extended summers hours Thurs-Sat). The menu is varied and the sides that we tried were to die for. Best potato salad I've had recently plus the baked beans and creamed corn were excellent as well. The staff was friendly and appreciative and we met the owner, who was keeping things tidy, talking to the customers, etc. Definitely plan a return visit soon!

“Funky place down in a valley behind some stores”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Barbecue at it's best. Outdoor seating only. (That's why I rate it excellent - no choice.) Pretty much like sitting in a gravel parking lot - with a table though. About as far from fancy as you can get but we like the place. Good food. Usually fairly busy.
