The service was good, the portions were decent and they do allow self serve for the side dishes but require wait staff service for the drinks with an expectation of a tip for serving drinks. Pork Ribs were undercooked and lacked good flavor. Their chopped beef is pre-chopped and was moist however it seemed to be artificially moistened with water... More

This place has been here so long, I thought it had to be good. Wrong! Barbecue joints in Texas don't normally serve baby back ribs. That's what I had, and they were very dry. Coleslaw was also dry (which I prefer over too wet, which is commonly the case). My wife had brisket, which she thought was good. Despite attentive... More

Had high expectations for this because I love Texas BBQ joints and can't say this was high on list. Brisket was pretty good but could've been little warmer, my son's ribs were tough to chew and wife swears mash potatoes were some portion instant. Bright spot was the friendly, attentive wait staff...they made it feel like a hometown place.

Visited here today while on the way to Angleton. Good choice. Had the single meat plate consisting of sliced brisket. Very smoky with good flavoring. The meat was sliced a bit thin for my taste and was not quite as hot and juicy as it should have been but nevertheless was a good meal. I see no reason to repeat... More

The title sums it up perfectly. Just alright. Would not highly recommend. The turkey and sausage links were good. Sides were okay. Had high hopes and was disappointed.

I visited Bubba's with a group of co-workers for lunch. The serving line went fairly quickly, the servers were friendly and attentive, and the food was really good. I'm not one for the sausage but the turkey and beef are out of this world. If you "kinda' like turkey", you will be longing for more of theirs every time you... More

We decided to try this spot because I wanted steak and my wife wanted a BBQ spud. I picked out my steak when we walked in. She had her spud. Service was quick and polite.

Good service by wait staff. Found the pork ribs and sausage to be very tender but lacking flavor. Side of coleslaw likewise not very tasty.
