Been here twice and loved it both times! Last time had the chicken and potato salad. So delicious! Such a cute little place.

We ate here twice when we visited a few years ago, and we did not want to miss it this time. Bubba's has several meats prepared in various ways. You can't go wrong with any of them. They close in winter, so don't miss eating...More

I have eaten here at least once per year for the last 8 or 10 years. The food is always decent at a good price. I usually have the pulled pork sandwich, but I have hade the burger and ribs too.

This place may be tiny but it is EXCELLENT! Everything is so good and the Baked Beans and Potato Salad are by far the best I have ever had! This is an absolute must try if you are in Eureka Springs.

The place is small and always packed...for a reason. There's a counter with bar stools which usually has seats available we tend to get carry out. It is a BBQ and curly fries heaven!

Another disappointing Arkansas bbq experience. The pulled pork sandwich was average at best, but the real disappointment was in the cole slaw that accompanied. It was literally tasteless, and incredibly, staff informed me that the owner had been preparing it this way for 40 years....More

I am not a big bbq fan but family wanted to eat here. Was pleasantly surprised . Great food, decent price for the area and an awesome staff. Our waitress even took us back and showed us the fire pit where they cook the meat.

Small place only seats about 30, but bbq selections are delicious. Free refills on soda.We had the brisket sandwich. Meat was tender and 2 selections for sauce, one mild and one hot.

The absolute best barbecue we have ever tasted. The 3 of us all had the pulled pork sandwich. Absolutely delicious along with the homemade fries. We have been to BBQ Fests all over the U.S. and this is the best barbecue we’ve ever had!!!
