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

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

Met friends for lunch. All loved the bbq flavors with their choice of lunch items. I enjoyed the chopped brisket sandwich. Others had the 2 or 3 meat platters, with no complaints. The food was excellent. Staff friendly and with a pleasant dining room to visit with friends.

My husband and I have recently driven over 3,000 miles exploring a little bit of the American mother land, when we just so happened to come across this little restaurant. How lucky we were to meet such fantastic people, and mmmm, Good old American food! Both Dan and Cole made us 'Brits' feel so welcome and the food was fantastic!... More

Nice, family friendly, informal dining spot. We've lived here about 3 months and we've already been to Bubb's about 5 times. Tonight, my husband had the Ribeye steak and I had the spicy links. All of their sauces are very good, but definitely try the mustard sauce - exceptional!! Football friendly!!

Food is great, service is good but over the last year we have observed the owner being really "nasty" to other customers. We were regular customers until we went to dinner with another couple and we all had gift certificates with NO stipulations or limitations on them other than unable to be used towards drinks. We ordered, ate and when... More
