Often busy so a reservation is a good idea. Their BBQ is great in any form you order. I like the Brisket most. Friday night fish fry is special too as is the midwest feeling in the bar. Particularly during a Wisconsin football broadcast on...More

About 5 miles north of Oracle and Tangerine in Catalina. Not exactly the conventional restaurants you find in Oro Valley. Worth a visit if you like BBQ particularly the ribs.

Very crowded, but able to get a table in twenty minutes. Food tasting and hot. You will enjoy the Midwest feeling if the bar. Enjoy.

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.

We've gone to Bubb's Grub several times starting last year. And always raved about it. BUT We're not sure if they've changed owners or cooks but the last two times we were there the ribs were very overcooked and dry. It used to be a...More

I don't think so. It's a pretty small place.
