Great service, food was average. Meat was tender and moist but could have used a touch more smoke flavor.

After eating souther BBQ for years we went back to Bubbas for lunch. Although the food was good, it was not exceptional. They left the membrane on the ribs. Overall it just needed more spice. Or even salt n Pepper.

Food was fantastic. Made a meal of Pork Nachos which were very good. Husband had special sandwich pork belly with apples and coleslaw. He loved it. Building was a little run down. I love vintage but it needs a facelift. Food and prices were great....More

Yep it lived up to the hype and well worth the visit. Our waitress was wonderful and had been with them for 20 plus years. Baked beans and ribs are worth going back for.

Good service and plenty of great flavor melt in your mouth pulled PORK. Large helping in a fun decor of the pig displays.

This is the real deal. They do not use liquid smoke and the ribs had very good flavor. Add your own sauce once the bbq is served.

I have a preference for BBQ that tastes smokey. While the meat was tender, it didn't taste like it had been anywhere near a fire.
