On our ongoing quest for US BBQ we thought we would try out this highly rated restaurant/take out.
The food is reasonably priced, served fast, and tasty...served by very friendly staff.
The food is ordered and paid for at the counter then served at your table.
Portions are reasonable and the food is great in a comfort food kind of way.
The combo meal for two of us was around $30...excellent value.

The food is pitched somewhere between a fast food restaurant/tgis and bar-style restaurant.

I'd definitely go again..,

What a pleasant surprise! The food was awesome! Everything was reasonably priced and portions were large. The chicken wings were large and meaty with delicious sauces. We had the Bubba sandwiches which were piled high with delicious pulled pork, brisket and hot links. All of the sides - macaroni and cheese, red skinned potato salad and cole slaw were homemade. We would definitely go here again.

We're never sure why that other BBQ place in San Diego gets all the attention because we love Bubba's. The meat is always melt in your mouth tender and delicious, the sides are plentiful and a selection of your particular type of sauce is available. Nice restaurant, too. Park on the street and walk in just across the street from Rappongi's. Excellent BBQ.

Good food and the portions seemed very reasonable for the price. The pulled pork and chicken seemed a little bland compared to other barbecue that I've tried, but given the chance, I'd eat there again.

We're locals and absolutely love Bubba's. Jeff, the owner, is always there to great us with a small and excellent service. The food is consistently good and we never wait more than a few minutes to be served. It's clean, tasty and a great place for a meal before or after a walk to the Cove. Good for families, too!
