Well, isn't Bubbacue just amazing! I love this place! I'm yet to have a bad "sandwich" out of it. Beef brisket is my favourite. The fries are scrumptious and the mac & cheese - don't get me started, give me one NOW! You just have to try this place! They are online so have a loook at their menu &... More

When Bubbacue arrived in Belfast, the tv show 'Man v. Food' was at the height of it's popularity. Viewers got to see many of the strange and wondrous restaurants and dishes served in the states, which were a far cry from what we were used to on this side of the pond. Our eyes were opened to large portions of... More

I frequently visit Bubbacue during my lunch hour in work. I normally get the bowl with cajun rice and either pulled pork or halloumi. The food is a good price and is generally very tasty and enjoyable. Sometimes the pulled pork can be a bit dry and chewy though. The halloumi is really nice although it would be nice to... More

This place has a cool vibe to it and friendly staff, very cheap too for a main and sides but the halloumi burger is so pathetic it doesn't seem worth it. You get way more bap than filling and it's not quite satisfying. Two pieces of panko halloumi the size of matchboxes. If there was an option to have 'extra'... More

Found this glory mid rush to catch the airport bus and a bit gutted that I discovered this on my last day in Belfast. They have a subway theme where you first choose your base, then your meat filling and then sides. If you play your cards right, you will fill up properly on just a main! I got cajun... More

Food is great value for all you pay for it and the different barbecue sauces that can be added are a nice touch :) Food could be a little bit hotter is my only complaint but will continue to come back!

I like the concept of choosing your meal, much like subway. There is a good selection of sides and sauces. I don't know if I would go there for dinner but it is a great £4/£5 lunch. The haloumi is highly recommended by my girlfriend and I.

Brilliant food served by super friendly staff especially Laura who we saw on each of our visits on our 4 day trip to beautiful Belfast. She made everything memorable and our visit to Belfast complete. Thank you so much for looking after us so well. Bristol needs a Bubbacue with a Laura! :-)
