I Had the Fish & Chips and my GF had the Walleye. The Senior portion. Came with tarter sauce, fries, bread and cole slaw. Plenty to eat and quite good along with a martini and a glass of wine for each. Got crowded around lunch time. Glad we got there a little early. Everyone like what they ordered.

We both were raised in Wisconsin and we love our Friday night fish fry's and since we moved to Arizona, we have not found any fish fry that was as good as Bubb's Grub was! It is lightly breaded cod, served with German style potato salad, if you wish and wonderful cole slaw......we were totally impressed and would go to... More

Messy, messy, messy, but good, good, good! We love the food, and the Bubb's BarBQue sauce is great! We always buy a couple bottles to bring home. Now that we don't get to Tucson so often, we have them ship it, or have friends/relatives send us some (which is far cheaper)!

It's the best BBQ I've ever had. Ever. Not dry, not over done, perfect flavor and juicy. No bull, and my husband is from TX. Nice assortment of options, even if you want a salad w/ BBQ on it.

Being a Kansas City native and eating my share of BBQ. Bubb's Grubb BBQ has to rate right up there with the best in KC. Really, Really, Really Good! You should take the short drive to Catalina!

I was wrapping up a day-long motorcycle ride and looking for a relaxing place to eat when I stumbled across Bubb's. The possibility of decent BBQ was tempting, so I stopped. I have to admit, I have become accustomed to being disappointed in the BBQ I find in Arizona, so my expectations were not too high. But from the moment... More

I first tried Bubb's Grub over 2 years ago and was very good. I have been there several times since and it gets worse and worse every time I have come. I gave it one for chance and have decided it is not worth ever going back. I started out with the Wisconsin cheese curds. Came out warm on some... More

Others in party had rib eye steak that they loved and pulled pork sandwich. Everything delicious. Eat here before going to the Gaslight Music hall and it... More

I ate here a couple of weeks ago for the first time and was very impressed. The ribs and brisket were outstanding, and the pork was very good. I've been to over 300 BBQ joints, so I know my Q. For instance, I flew into Phoenix and spent 1.5 hours waiting in line for lunch at Little Miss BBQ, the... More
