We discovered this restaurant last year and thought the food was outstanding! We returned this year and found it still to be very good but portion sizes seem to be a bit smaller. Staff and service are terrific. You order at the counter and they then deliver to your table. My husband had pulled pork and brisket with fries, cold... More

Enjoyed some good bbq and sweet tea! We enjoyed some ribs and chicken, pulled pork sandwich, fried okra, fried mozzarella and some good sweet tea and Cheerwine! The pulled pork was very moist and tasty! Ribs had good flavor but were a bit dry. Very laid back, relaxed place outside of the main orlando areas! The fried mozzarella was a... More

Wow, I've lived in Texas, South Carolina, and Alabama as well as traveling extensively. I have been avoiding Florida Bar-B-Que after having a less than great experience in Jacksonville a few years ago. But this was outstanding. The Ribs particularly were excellent. Cooked to perfection with a nice smokey flavor all through them. the Brisket was not up to the... More

Had lunch at Bubblou's while vacationing in Orlando. Everyone in our party had the pulled pork sandwiches and we split a basket of fried pickles. The pulled pork was moist and had great flavor even before we added one of the sauces that was available at each table. Sweet, Hot and "Killer" we're the sauces available. I like things a... More

This BBQ has been around for years but I haven't been there for several and made it a point to get off I-4 at Kirkman and head north to savor fantastic BBQ in Orlando. This is not fancy or polished off like 4 Rivers. Just great food at a fair price! The main courses of ribs and chicken are delicious.... More

I'd advise anyone visiting Orlando to leave international drive and venture away from the big chain restaurants and diners and visit this place! Friendly welcome, great selection of meats, and a fun interior. I had the brisket and the baby back ribs- which came with garlic bread, chips, coleslaw and some of the best bbq beans I've had! The meal... More

This place is an absolute must. Authentic BBQ with a huge choice on the menu, everything we tried was great and very good value for money. Really beats the standard fast food and diners on offer in the touristy Orlando area. It is really close to international drive and universal studios and very easy to get to. The servers were...

After being recommended to eat here, we were not disappointed, most delicious meat, and plenty of it , I'm afraid we all left some as we were completely full, Reasonable price, and will definitely be returning
