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 Todd Mullin 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 in summer. And we're ready for anything you can dream up so remember us for catering. We do much more than just b. Catering phone: 702-1301 Hubba Hubba is also 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 offsite in Flat Rock or Hendersonville. We're open mid-March to just before Christmas. Check our website for hours.

A little hard to find, but once we found it, so pleased that we did. Great barbecue in the mountains of North Carolina. It will become one of "Must Stops" when visiting in the area. How good was it? We ordered takeout of ribs and chicken to take back for dinner that evening.

Nice local flavor here with great BBQ and other inspired creations (fish tacos and grilled cheese are particular favorites). You do site outside with some covered tables. Make sure to bring cash, they don't take cards of any kind. There is an ATM there if you forget cash. Dog friendly. Be aware they close at 7p.

Hubba Hubba BBQ is the kind of place that you must look for carefully or you'll miss it. We went on a Saturday evening. You can eat inside or outside and the food is wonderful. We had a pulled pork plate - the meat was tender and not at all dry. We chose the South Carolina Sweet BBQ sauce and the Mustard Sauce - both were excellent. Since it was not too warm, we ate outside and enjoyed watching the chickens pecking at bits of crumbs and helping to clean up the dining area - a unique experience. We felt the prices were extremely reasonable for the quality of the food. Obviously it's not a "find dining" experience, but if you like great BBQ and a unique setting, this is for you.

This is a yummy barbecue place because they really smoke their meat. It's also a very cute place to eat with flowers and metal sculptures of chickens. Huge one on the roof where the smoke comes out.

A few chickens wandering among the tables. Have an outdoor fireplace at one end. Eating is outside under umbrellas or big overhang. They have a box of chalk and children can draw all over the pavement.

Don't miss it. They make all their own barbecue sauces.

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.
