Great bar b q the Clintons favorite. I order the sauce from them and have it shipped to me. Very casual atmosphere. You'll enjoy.

Ok BBQ, but ribs we ere dry and charred at the ends. Generous portions. Beans too sweet. Potatoes huge, but no cheese option. Won't come back.

Passing through Hot Springs, we stopped at Stubby's for dinner based upon reviews I had seen here and elsewhere. It was a very happy decision. You order at the counter cafeteria style and take your tray to a table. The dining room had a rustic decor that is a lot nicer than many top barbecue restaurants (wood instead ot formica and a flat screen TV with the football game). Everyone ahead of us in line got a sandwich of one kind or another. But everything looked so good that we settled on a sampler platter to try all of the meats (brisket, pulled pork, ribs, ham and chicken) and some of the sides. It does not come with the bean pot, but the beans looked so good we added them in. The resulting pile of food would serve two people easily for two or three meals. Everything was good, and some of it -- the brisket and the bean pot -- were outstanding and as good or better than you could get anywhere. The included dish of sauce is good, but none of the meat really needs it, so that is up to you.

I have been hitting this place since I was a teenager--25 years ago--consistent through the years, this place is great. I compare all and I mean all other bbq places to Stubby's and they all fall short. Tried places in Texas, Memphis, Louisiana and Arkansas and no one has food as good as Stubby's. Their ribs are great, their sliced beef tastes smoky, potato salad and baked beans are great. It is the best bbq place in Hot Springs and way less crowded than the famous place across town. You never have to wait for a seat and you can get it to go at the drive thru, too. The sauce is regular or hot, try the hot bbq sauce, you will get it from now on. Ask for the hot bbq sauce on the side and they give you a bowl full of it. Sweet and spicy hot, goes great with the meats and mix some in with the beans, great!!
