Delicious and tender tri tip and pulled pork. The side were blah though (we got buttery corn, fries, mac n cheese, and salad) and overpriced. Of the sides I’d probably pick corn again that comes with the meal, but I would not pay extra to...add things to my order again. I would definitely come back, but would just order the meat a la cart or the sandwich. Meal was priced as though you were being served (just under $20 for a tritium sandwich and side), but you pick it up from the counter and no one comes by to check on your or clear your trash. We would have tipped less had we realized this. They also ask you to not refill sodas (strange considering they charge $3.50 for the soda). The inside is fun, and cute for families, but there’s also no kids meal options, which is why we i added so many sides. All they liked was the corn. (And you know fries are lousy when kids won’t eat them)More

Really surprised to see that in this town there are not a lot of businesses with employees wearing masks. We got take out from here and the food was good, good portions, good value, but a little disconcerting to see that neither of the two...kitchen staff nor the bartender were wearing masks when picked up our food.More

After eating there two nights I took a group of 32 antique barbed wire collectors there for a banquet dinner. The food and service were excellent! I highly recommend Big Bubba's!

Went for a family Birthday Dinner. To our surprise, there is no more service. The restaurant is now like Carl's Jr, but you pick up your food at the kitchen window. Menu only has about 12 items and no more kids menu. The owner made...big mistake with the changes.More

Food is okay, not fabulous, service is good, ambiance is okay as well. It was not busy, so I cannot comment on the noise level.

I'm a Texas BBQ fan as I lived there for many years. This is not Texas Style BBQ, but quite good, none the less, nor is it Kansas City style. I had the Beef Brisket - it was moist, not over cooked, and tasty even...without the BBQ sauce. Their sauce is not too spicy, but very good. It doesn't scream at you, it just adds to the experience. Friendly and helpful staff. Oh, and a discount if you stay at the Adelaide Inn (coupon from the motel)More

Very over priced joint, even in happy hour. ($7 pints for Ultra). Had a Tri tip dip and the bread was not edible unless dipped. It was either stale or just plain awful. The wedge was not good and we had to ask for dressing....We’ve been there twice and finally learned our lesson. Never again.More

A buddy and I went to Big Bubba's. We both ordered the same thing, tri-tip sandwich. Sadly to say there was very little tri-tip in sandwich. Lots and lots of bread but no meat. Very disappointed! For what we paid for dinner, we should have...got a whole tri-tip.More
