“Awesome Burgers”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Our hotel recommended this place and we are glad they did. The menu had many tasty items but we had to go for the burgers. The burgers came on fresh, house-baked buns and were cooked perfectly. In my wife's words " the. Burger was memorable". We also were told to have the tater tots, they came with a great sauce and were awesome. They have some very creative drinks, but I had to go with. Past Blue Ribbon beer as it reminded me of my dad as this is what he drank when I was a kid. We would return to this place in a heartbeat.

“A Good Place to Eat”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Bubba's is a nice restaurant with very good food and service. However, the price you pay for what you get is crazy. I ordered a small burrito for $7.50. All I got was a burrito wrapped in tinfoil...nothing else. No salsa, no sides, not even a bed of lettuce. For $7.50, you would think you would get a little something more with it. I will only go again if my friends really, really, really want to go there.

“Quaint, original with great service, salads, burgers and atmosphere!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Arrived into town on a Friday at 3p, got a seat at the bar with a friendly bartender. We had a great late lunch with a few pints of beer for a great price as we were surprised to get 1/3 off of our bill for Happy Hour. We liked it so much that we took our parents back on Sunday on our way out of town.

“Fun, good food, good price!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Love the shrimp burritos here, although last visit they had chopped them up instead of leaving them whole. A huge mistake. This is a fun little bar in TC where you can't go wrong, large assortment of choices on the menu. Decent bar food!
