My wife and stopped here for dinner. I had a brisket sandwich which contained at least twice the quantity of meat that i expected. Not to mention tasty. The fried potato side dish was also very good and a generous quantity. Excellent value.
Bubba's is our choice when it comes to a family gathering, whether it a birthday or just a night out. Food comes fast and flavorful. Often we (and others in our group) get "to-go" boxes because serving are so large.
Title says it all...they do use an electric smoker but consistently good bbq and fresh salads. John Deere corn is my favorite side dish too. I eat here most chances I get while traveling through town since I don't live in Ottumwa.
I've ate a lot of ribs up in Vancouver, BC. But F*** me these are the best I've ever had! My waitress was very helpful and nice. The prices were reasonable and the portions were huge! Wish we had a place this good back home....Too bad I'm only here for 1 day on business.More
We tried to eat at this dreadful, noisy place, but after standing by the hostess station for ten minute, we finally just left in disgust. I don't know who likes this place, but the service is deplorable.
The place was busy on a Friday night. The hostess sat me quickly. The wait staff was very quick and attentive. The menu was a little unclear about what cut of meat items were. For example the 1lb sampler platter simply said Beef, Pork, Chicken,...Sausage, Ham... When I asked my waitress what they were she told me, but was a little dismayed that the menus are unclear. She was very nice and friendly to me.
The meats did not seem smoked enough to me. Look at my attached picture to see what I mean. Everything was cooked to a proper temperature. The meats did not seem as though they were smoked long enough for that buttery soft texture and good smokey flavor. The Beef Brisket was dry and tough. The Pork Butt Shoulder was very tough, cut too thick, and not smokey at all. The chicken was really good. I would have really liked to try the ribs and some other meats, but I could not.More
