I still love packsaddle, but they are not as good as Bubba's. I'm a Bubba's convert! The chopped brisket is always phenomenal and I love the potato salad. The sauces are great, and I think homemade. They have daily specials for cheaper eats, and they have a punch card to earn free meals.

Terrible service... not friendly personnel... the instalation is terrible, not a suprise now that there was nobody there... food is ok but very small portions and no beer. This was the first and the last time.

Enjoyed the "Piglet" with the jalapeño sausage (not too spicy) for lunch. Choice of three sauces, but try it without, as the sandwich is excellent without any sauce. The beans had a nice kick and weren't too saucy or sweet. Atmosphere is a friendly local dive.

I enjoyed the food so much my plate was piled High. We ordered take out for five of us and we were not disappointed.

The setting is understated. It is not fine dining. But, if you just want some good bbq, they deliver. We were very happy and talked about the food for hours after we left. It was that good. Very friendly service, as well.

We are huge bbq fans but San Angelo bbq just doesn't cut it. Bubba's is a small glimmer of hope for good bbq in San Angelo. They're ribs and pulled pork is a decent option for bbq. Why doesn't west Texas know how to make good bbq??

Referred here to eat the Piglet Special on Monday. Not disappointed as it comes with sausage (I had jalapeno sausage ) ham and pulled pork. Also drink and a side for about $7.00. Kind of divey but most good Texas BBQ places are. Prices and BBQ well worth it.

I know there's a lot of controversy on this particular subject, but Bubba's is my personal favorite when it comes to BBQ in San Angelo. The brisket is tender & flavorful, and the sausage has just the right combo of spices. I like every type of sauce they serve. They also run pretty good family meal specials.

Fast service with a small dining room. The staff is always friendly and the food comes out quick. Great smoke flavor in their meats but the sauces are just average.

Got bbq sandwiches to go, smelled great but didn't have much flavor. Way too much meat but probably good for guys who eat a lot.
