Ok so my favorite thing to order is the rib basket. Ribs and fries with Fresh Texas toast . Mmmmmm good. I like to mix my BBQ sauces. But I love this place. Staff is friendly. My complaint? I NEVER order the sides like beans or greens. They are ridiculously stupid small. Like really, that's ALL THE PORKNBEANS you can... More

I was so excited to find Bubbalou's in Altamonte. We had ate at the one in Orlando and everyone loved it! I made a point to stop even though I went solo. I ordered the rib dinner. I believe it comes with four sides of your choice. I had baked beans, mac & cheese, coleslaw and garlic bread. The beans... More

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
