4 of us stopped for a late lunch and we were not disappointed - we were the only ones in the dining room as it was mid day mid week but it was a pleasant visit - our waiter Pete was very attentive and helpful with our questions on the choices - everything we had was delicious - our ony... More

Excellent prime rib sandwich that was tender and juicy! Rubbed chicken wings were great too! Nice owner and attentive servers!

This is a nice BBQ place. In the winter, it is a bit noisy. The staff is friendly and there is a Southwest atmosphere. If you go on Friday, consider the fish fry. Cod or Walleye. A bit pricey.

This is one of the few places in Tucson that offers completely cooked, take-home meals for Thanksgiving. The turkey was the best I've had - very tender. The food was ready when I went to pick it up. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was a one-hour drive from the NE Tanque Verde area where I live, but well... More

The food is a good place for BBQ.. Outside the building looks good with a painted Bull on one of the walls.. Although prices seem high and owner thinks someone owes him a living.. Just my impression.. Pitcher of beer $18.00.. Nuts.. But bottom line if you are in the mood for BBQ it is the best in Tucson...

Coming from Western NY, I have searched the Tucson area for an old fashioned Friday Fish Fry. Bubb's Grub fits the bill! They serve an ample sized Walleye Pike, breaded and deep fried to perfection. No Grease! My piece was a good 12" long. Moist...can't stop thinking about it. My son had 3 choices of smoked meats...the smoked brisket was... More

If you like BBQ, and are in the area, this is the place to go. Ignore the restaurant's silly name and focus on the food. The quality of the BBQ is great, the service friendly and the price is right. I was particularly fond of the spicy andouille sausage.

I Had the Fish & Chips and my GF had the Walleye. The Senior portion. Came with tarter sauce, fries, bread and cole slaw. Plenty to eat and quite good along with a martini and a glass of wine for each. Got crowded around lunch time. Glad we got there a little early. Everyone like what they ordered.

We both were raised in Wisconsin and we love our Friday night fish fry's and since we moved to Arizona, we have not found any fish fry that was as good as Bubb's Grub was! It is lightly breaded cod, served with German style potato salad, if you wish and wonderful cole slaw......we were totally impressed and would go to... More
