Paula and I were here on St. Simon's Island to see if we could find the HGTV Home of the year that that I religiously enter to win, and I hope to call home along with 4 million other people. I also needed to have my lap top looked at which is also why we were here. While we were... More

If you enjoy Mexican food, you'll like Bubba Garcia's. I had chicken fajitas, and my husband had enchiladas. They give you plenty of chips and salsa. We had an outdoor table. The service was very good. Nice, casual atmosphere.

You can never go wrong here for lunch or dinner. The Nachos are great. Have the ground beef Nachos with a side of guacamole and more chips! Excellent! The clientele is mostly local during December, as it should be since the summer season has passed! Nice place. If you want to eat outside they have heaters!
