We visited Bubbalous today, about 5 pm. Pretty empty, got seated right away. There were five of us. We found it odd that when you enter the place, you immediately have to go up to the counter and order. Having never been there before, we were all overwhelmed at the fast pace you had to order, then sit down with... More

Always good, smokey, hot and juicy? Kudos! Quick jump off the Sunrail train at Altamonte station. $5.99 each. I think one of the BBQ sandwiches on this side of town.

Excellent wings. Dinners are a bit pricey for the portion size but satisfying. Great brisket. Clean. I kinda like that it's counter service. Comfortable atmosphere. They have some things that others don't (gator tail, okra, cabbage).

Needed a quick bite on my travels and stopped in. Great quality, generous portions, but what stood out was friendly staff. They checked in, asked on refills and cleared my basket and were very attentive. Good stuff!

Since I moved to the area, always wanted to go in and try the food and finally it happened. I went for lunch, the place was not that full, but comfortable. The order is done at the entrance, they give you a large wooden spoon with a number and you wait at a table. The food came quickly, a small... More

My husband loves Bubbalou's so I had to get it for his birthday celebration. It is always loved by all and my only regret was that I didn't get more ribs. Everyone loved the ribs. The pulled pork is excellent and makes yummy leftovers for omelets. They have the best bake beans and coleslaw. This is an easy way to... More

This was my 3rd time here for lunch and the food has been consistently good. Plenty of seating and a very friendly staff. When I used to live in Orlando I would frequent the Lee Rd location and it was also good. I don't think you would go wrong with any Bubbalou's location.

I went to this place at recommendation of a friend. You walk in and order. Your food is brought to your table. The ambiance is clean but simple. The food was very good. My pulled pork sandwich was delicious. You add sauce to the pork from bottles at the table. I would would also recommend the barbecue chicken sandwiches. Buy... More
