Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Fell upon this place by mistake. After a yelp review, we decidied to give it a go. Im still in awe over how amazing the food is! We were blown away by this place. We had a burger, mahi tacos (which were okay) and the mac n cheese bites. Cannot wait to make the drive back here.

“Busy but fun place to go!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We went to Bubba's on a Saturday night so had to wait about 45 minutes for a table but it was fun to people watch and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves even while waiting. While their, we tried a great soup and were told the chef was entering it in a contest that weekend. If our votes would have counted it would have won! We had three different kinds of soup as they had a bottomless bowl offer for $5.00. All were great. They had lots of other foods , it was just a cold winter evening and soup hit the spot.

“Fun, happy and cool place to eat...”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

I had Fish & Chips ... yum. Almost as good as in England. Even serve you good quality vinegar. The rest of the party had a 1/2 pound burger that was excellent, a wet Burrito ... super huge and a Club Sandwich. All delicious. The waitress that served our table was friendly and attentive. Pretty to boot! Will definitely be back.

“Great Burgers”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

One of the best burgers I can remember. I almost couldn't finish the whole thing and if you knew me you'd understand why that's a big deal!

“Fun, Food is OK”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Fun casual setting. This is good burger and beer joint. The theme is nice, good place to watch a ball game and have a few beers.
