We decided to try Bubba's Bar-B-Que in Cody again after 4.5 yrs to see if the food was better that our 2012 visit. And it was! We had great service with great prices! The Bar-B-Que Pork sandwich & the Beef Brisket meal were excellent. Enough meat for 2 average eaters all on 1 order for 1. We fell in love... More

Bubba's Bar-B-Que can be a very busy place. I arrived around 6:30 PM and it was nearly full. Later there was a line out the door. It is within walking distance of some motels that cater to tour groups. The seating is at booths and picnic tables. I had the Sloppy Bubba sandwich. It was a combo of beef and... More

went in for "rocky mountain oysters" and dinner. oysters were fair. had ribs and my husband had prime rib.....both uninspiring. I couldn't actually eat the ribs they were soooo tuff. dinner cost 60.00 for 2 and we didn't eat half of it. would not go back.

The chili and salad my fiance had were excellent. I had the toughest prime rib I have had in a long time. It was tasty, but dry and tough. The service was very good and friendly.

Their BBQ pork sandwiches are great...they are served with sauce and they leave it up to you to put as much on as you wish...and their sauce is delicious. We chose to have it served on garlic bread...good idea! We also ordered the deep fried battered corn as an appetizer...also delicious...we wished we had ordered the full order instead of... More

Bubba's isn't too bad for their BBQ but wanted to get just the salad bar and it is quite expensive for not a very good salad bar. The salad bar doesn't have any meat choices on there except bacon bits.It also does not include soup. The bbq I have had here is ok but portions are pretty small for the... More

Thank you for your response. I am glad that you like our BBQ. I would like to say, however, that our salad bar is one of the biggest in the basin with 42 choices of items, all fresh and all homemade (not canned or in a plastic tub like other places). If you were to go to one of the... More

Really good food. Nice staff. They had a prime rib special the night we were there. Hubby got a massive amount of ribs. You won't be disappointed.

I went there because of positive reviews. I was disappointed. The food was nothing special and I would not go back there.

Bubba's offers good ribs, barbecue, and burgers at fair prices. It also has a fairly-decent salad bar. It's not an elegant place, but it's family-friendly. Its food would rate somewhere between average and very good, but for Cody, make it "very good." If you like ribs, you can do much worse and pay a lot more.

Thank Charles K

Bubba's is only an hour’s drive from spectacular Yellowstone National Park. If you're looking for mouth-watering, hickory-smoked meats, look no further than Bubba's Bar-B-Que. Enjoy in the restaurant, or take it with you for picnics and road trips -- our meats are awesome alone or in sandwiches. We’re sure to have something to satisfy your hunger whether you’ve been hiking all day or are going to the rodeo in the evening. Not only do we have the best bar-b-que in Wyoming, but we also have sandwiches, burgers, steaks, an awesome salad bar, and great choices for the kids. Don't forget about our homemade desserts and generous selection of micro-brews.
