Bubb Garcia's is a tad small but boy to they put out the food! And it is flavorful and fresh. The wait staff is very attentive. Burrito (ground beef) was very good, and my wife had the crispy tacos. Excellent pico de gallo--tasted like it just came out of the garden. Very generous serving of chips and salsa while we... More

We live on St. Simons half the year. Bubbas is in Redfern Village, a little shopping area with lots to do - shops, bars, restaurants. Half of the restaurant is out of doors, so it relies on the weather a little bit. Love their fish tacos and their Margaritas are excellent. Not too sweet, and plenty of kick. Great Fun... More

Stopped by after visiting the lighthouse. We had a great meal. Not crowded at all. The margarita's are the best around! Chicken fajitas were great. Highly recommend this place! The best meal we have had so far on our vacation!

Always the best blackened fish tacos! Lunch service was slower than normal (and the restaurant wasn't busy).

This place is good change up restaurant, if you are burned out on fried seafood and cheeseburgers look no further. Bubba's is a welcoming cantina with a friendly staff, great margaritas, a diverse selection of tap beer, tasty chips and salsa, and really good Tex Mex chow. I usually get the triple decker tostada but today I opted for the... More

We loved the variety of burritos. The food was great in general. Also, the margaritas were delicious! Fun atmosphere and our waitress was great and attentive. We will come back, for sure.

My husband and I were on an anniversary trip recently, and brought our little dachshund with us, so finding a restaurant that was pet friendly was a priority, so we chose this one. We were promptly seated outside, even though they were crowded, and we had pretty good service as well. The food was good. Not the absolute BEST I've... More
