I couldn't wait to get to Bubala's for a burger! I crave them. Hand made, & cooked perfectly. They have other great food too, like fried seafood. The atmosphere is fun there. We try to get there any time we are in P-town.

We always hit Bubala's for brunch. Well done. Reasonable price. Inside in cool weather (get a boot with the water view) or outside and watch the strollers. Good service, reasonable prices, bottomless coffee.

Bubala's by the Bay is a must when in Ptown. Salads and burgers and fish 'n chips and way more. All great food and quick and friendly service are a boon to support location, location, location for people watching.

I had the salmon with basmati rice and the best beets ever. The bread that came with the meal was delicious as it was served with a warmed garlic. The waiter was helpful, attentive and just so sweet.

You can choose a table indoors with water view, or on the patio suitable for people watching on Commercial St., where your well behaved dog is also welcome. I had seared ahi tuna (very rare) and veggie spring rolls with garlic dipping sauce. Both visually...More
