My husband and I went there for lunch and got the skinny burger and the lunch special ham and cheese sandwich and a bowl of brocolli cheddar soup. Everything is fresh and homemade and the waitress was very animated and provided outstanding service

My wife and I were staying in Traverse City for a couple days, and picked this restaurant based on user reviews. We had about a 20 minute wait to get seated on a weeknight, and the place was noisy with kids and young adults. They have a good selection of craft beers, and our food was great, but it wasn't...

We went for lunch. The food was good, the wait staff attentive, and the atmosphere was relaxed and family oriented. The nice surprise was, even though they were very busy, the wait for a table was shorter than expected.

I went to Bubbas to place a to go order. I ordered a chicken burrito, guacamole, chips and beverages. Either the burrito or guacamole had heavy garlic flavor which ruined the taste. The burrito was very bland with little chicken. My order was very expensive too and not worth the price. I would pass on this average place to dine.... More

The tacos were awesome and not like other places, they were very filling but just enough, I had the Steak and Shrimp and my wife had the Mahi Mahi, we were both impressed as we eat out a lot and are big critics of food. Our waitress was very friendly and we had great service. The place is also kid... More

We loved Bubba's. The food was delicious. The service was great. There was a 40 minute wait on a Friday at 5:00, but they took our cell number and texted us when our table was ready. This allowed us to walk around downtown. It was worth the wait. Since they are known for their burgers, we ordered a mushroom burger,... More
