Description: We honor the rich Carolina BBQ tradition of low & slow but unlike many pits you won't find any Bubbas here. Though there is often confusion with our name, our pitmaster Starr Teel and Lindsay Cromartie in the kitchen are both classically trained chefs. So remember, we're not Hubba Bubba. We're Hubba Hubba as in "Mmmm! Look at that brisket. HUBBA HUBBA!" Our menu features scratch made sauces and classic sides as well as unique seasonal sandwiches, soup, salad and even fish and shrimp on Fridays and Saturdays. And we're ready for anything you can dream up so remember us for catering. For catering, phone: 702-1301 Hubba Hubba Smokehouse is a great gathering place. It's an informal place to bring a client for lunch, take a break from a busy day and a choice location for entertaining friends old and new at a catered event or let us cater an event at your location. We are open mid-March to the Saturday before Christmas. Check our website for hours and open dates.

“A NC native says: Best BBQ around!”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Always friendly, always delicious, always worth the trip. The lady from FL with the bad review wouldn't know BBQ if it hit her in the face. Best pulled pork in western NC. Smoke house is on site, complete with free range chickens to amuse the kiddos. Tried their new tamales today, outstanding!
Only downside: cash or check only. ATM on site.

“Miss this, and you have missed-out”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Adjacent the great Flat Rock Bakery in Rainbow Row, Hubba Hubba's is a creation of Starr Teel, Cordon Bleu trained, who has added a new dimension to bar-b-que. This special place offers indoor and covered seating in a cozy kind of setting.
We have on innumerable occasions dined here entertaining guests or taken home ribs. The beans will wow you. Miss this place and you will have missed out one of the special of life's experiences.

“Bubba's visit Hubba Hubba”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

We visited Hubba Hubba on a holiday weekend with friends from the area and were not disappointed. The restaurant is not at street level and you have to drive down a driveway off the main street to a lower level to find it. Watch the signs for the turn off as we went by it the first time. There is pretty good parking and the seating is good with some in the open and some under a balcony. The store is all self-service. Customers line up at a screen window (reminds me of the old Dairy Queens of the early 60’s) and make your order from a chalk board menu. Options are Beef Brisket, pulled Pork or Chicken, or Racks of Ribs. There is also Shrimp if you don’t want meat. They offer sandwiches, plates of meat or bowls of meat with Cheese Grits topped with collard greens. Yep you are in the south! We tried three different presentations: The pulled Pork bowl which was very good, the Sliced Beef Brisket sandwich which was very good, and the pulled Pork Plate which was good as well but the Pork was a little dry for my taste. Additionally we ordered a side of corn bread and a cheddar biscuit. The corn bread was OK but dry and the cheddar biscuit was quite good. All fountain drinks are one size with unlimited refills. The wait from order to delivery (when they call your name to pick up your order at the window) was about 15 minutes. They were busy the day we were there with a number of parties ahead of us of 6 or more people in an order so I think their turnaround time was pretty good. Overall I think it was a very good experience and I recommend it if you are in the area.

“So yummy!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Visited for dinner. It was a Saturday summer concert night. The line was long but worth the wait. Really good BBQ and delicious sides, cornbread, baked beans, potato salad. There were several different sauce options so whether you like sweet, mustard based, or something with more kick, you can find it here. Meat was tender and delicious. Don't visit flat rock without stopping here.

“best BBQ period”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

this place has the best ribs ever. they have huge amounts of meat on them and are not dripping with sauce and are cooked to perfection. the location is great as well, really nice atmosphere. great after building up an appetite hiking in the mountains. I don't like slaw, but I liked theirs, and the potato salad is good as well.
