First time visit, definitely not the last! The owner was at the register and helped me to decide what to order, because everything on the menu just looked so good. I ended up with the fish sandwich, and I could not have been happier. The fish hung off both sides of the bun and was served with a heaping pile... More

Stopped into Bubbalou's after helping my daughter move into her apartment at UCF. It was almost 9pm and we were all tired and hungry. Bubbalou's is a sit down restaurant where you order as you enter and the food is brought to you by servers. We had most of our food within 5 minutes or ordering. An order of wings... More

Bubbalou's Bodacious Bar-B-Q is some of the best pulled pork in town! My daughter and I love to eat there and she likes to play Pokemon when we visit! It's a good place with great food and great service!

We ran into a fellow guest at the hotel that had just eaten here the night before and recommended it. I for one was glad that he did! I order the Texas Brisket, cole slaw, macaroni and cheese, baked beans, Texas Toast, and Unsweet Iced Tea. The brisket was great! I just wish I had more of that fat cap... More

I was looking for an authentic BBQ restaurant and came across Bubbalou's on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a shot.... and I'm so glad I did. Its not one of the many tourist restaurants in Orlando, it's a home grown and run BBQ joint, order as you enter, find a table and let them bring over the best... More

We drove out of our way to visit Bubbalou's on our holiday and we were not disappointed. The restaurant isn't very big, but there were ample seats during our visit. The food is awesome and reasonably priced. Parking was a little difficult as the nearby gym seems to be very busy

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
