Portions were very large, and the meat was good, as would be expected from a smokehouse. Very good bottled beer selection as well.

Ok BBQ right near the La Jolla Cove off Girard Ave. Value was fine. The setting is not great as it is on the ground floor of a office bidg.

The fried pickles came with a creamy, spicy buffalo-type sauce. The light batter is tasty.

We ordered a full rack of pork ribs in order to have leftovers.
The full rack came with 2 cornbread muffins and 2 sides.

We chose garlic mashed potatoes and baked beans. The garlic mashed were definitely garlicy. The potatoes are beaten or whipped, not mashed. I liked them. The beans contained 2 types of beans and were good, too.

The ribs were excellent. The dry rub on them is excellent. Bubba's serves two sauces and both are good. The spicey one isn't real hot. The sauce is a vinegar-style sauce & very tasty.

We drove around a while trying to find street parking and almost decided to go elsewhere. We paid $8.00 to park in the adjacent ramp. Parking is the only reason not to go to Bubba's. It is excellent barbecue.

Stopped in for lunch and had the barbecue brisket platter. It was fabulous with their sweet sauce on it, probably the best I've ever had ! Their garlic mashed potatoes were just as good. Very hood corn bread muffins too. When will they open shop in Phoenix, can't wait !!
