Stayed at the hotel next door on business trip. Walked over for dinner two nights in a row. Had the pulled pork platter one night and the beef brisket platter the next. Huge portions with three sides, multiple BBQ sauces and cold beer on tap. Large screen TVs at all viewing angles with sports galore. I liked the beef brisket... More

Been visiting for a number of years. Great BBQ food in simple but authentic feeling restaurant. Really friendly staff that make you feel very welcome. Our last visit was a lunchtime and the place was very busy with local people. While the BBQ is all excellent, they also do a very fine cheeseburger. Anyone who has visited Orlando will know... More

We were in Orlando with family and friends. It's hard to pick a place everyone is happy eating including the kids. We picked this place and everyone was more than happy with the selection they made. My son even asked foe second helping of okra. Thanks for the great food and fantastic service.

Food was great! My husband & I shared a combo platter, baby back ribs & shrimp, Baked beans, Cole slaw & garlic bread also came with it. The beans were soooo yummy! Wishing they had had grits as some earlier reviews had mentioned, but the cashier said they didn't have any. Not sure if that was just for this particular... More

Wow, I thought I was in Texas. You walk into Bubbalou's and you know right away that this is legit BBQ. They have great meats (pulled chicken is some of the best I've had) and a variety of BBQ sauces. It's casual dining and the combo's are great. Try the alligator. Worth a stop for those that like REAL BBQ!

We all love BBQ so we had high expectations and we were not disappointed, the quality of the food was very good and the brisket was fantastic and the ribs are to die for. The sauces are wonderful and include heat if required. Another place to add to our must do list

Three words... bar be que. these guys know what they're doin. I'd recommend something, but honestly, every time I go I get something different and it's just as amazing as the last thing I had. From ribs to brisket, you won't be disappointed and you'll never leave hungry.
