Some of the best ribs anywhere! Hadn't been there in years, but just as delicious as we remembered. Decor hasn't changed much in 40 years.

$58 for a slice of pie, a salad, and three sandwiches with fries. Nowhere near worth the prices they charge. A plain cheeseburger $9.95!! Will not eat here again. Service was good and friendly.

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.
