We stopped for lunch after a club meeting and shared a full rack of ribs. The signature sauce is spicy and not too sweet. Good sides and either Texas toast or flour tortilla. We'll be back!

Stopped for a late lunch and had the dining room to ourselves. Chopped brisket and sliced brisket sandwiches were our choices. Both very tasty and nicely served by Brandon. The potato salad was a small portion but tasty. Beans were nicely spiced.

The pork and chicken were tasty. The only negative was the green beans, overcooked. I prefer crispy vegables. Must be a good restaurant,. crowded parking lot and no tables in the main area.

Great place to eat. Love the pulled pork sandwich and the incredible BBQ beans. Nice cozy bar and easy access from the main road. Clean and tidy. You won't regret eating here.

My husband is a rib freak, but the ribs he had were mediocre at best. The entree was pricey for the quality of the food. Food order was dry and not hot, which is how you want your food to be when delivered.

Not overly impressed with the food here. Asked for a gluten free menu. The only thing they offered me was a salad with grilled chicken. Fine with a salad but it was nothing special. The chicken was fine but the lettuce was not very fresh....More

When you come from Central Texas where the barbeque is so good, it even gets rave write-ups in the NY Times and The New Yorker, most other kinds disappoint. When we heard the owner/chef at Bubb's learned his craft in New Braunfels, TX, we headed...More

Bubb's Grub is a folksy, comfortable restaurant with an old west feel. The thing I noticed about this visit was how friendly and attentive the staff was from the time we walked in the door until our departure. We really felt welcome. Between us we...More
