We were from out of the area, and asked someone at church where we should eat lunch. We were told we had to go here and we are so glad we did! You walk in and place your order and then they bring the food to you. (The only weird thing was that you pay first, and can tip before... More

Visited today from Nashville for a company meeting. Ordered 6 lbs of pulled pork and several gallons of sides to take back to the business. It was ready to go within 15 minutes even though I didn't call ahead. Food was great, service was outstanding.

We have eaten in and take-out from Bubbalou's many times. It's my favorite bar-b-que place of all time. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The staff is friendly and professional. The out-door dining area is a very nice space. It's all good!

Living in the Mid West I was skeptical about BBQ in Florida. Well I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the pulled pork dinner that came with fries and beans. The fries were fries.....not much to say. The beans were very good, not too sweet with meats in the sauce. Pretty good beans. The pork was juicy but not a huge... More

I was visiting my daughter and wanted some barbeque. We stopped here because we had our dogs with us and they have outdoor seating. The Pulled Pork Sandwich was delicious and HUGE, my wife & daughter shared the Catfish sandwich and said it excellent.

Ok so my favorite thing to order is the rib basket. Ribs and fries with Fresh Texas toast . Mmmmmm good. I like to mix my BBQ sauces. But I love this place. Staff is friendly. My complaint? I NEVER order the sides like beans or greens. They are ridiculously stupid small. Like really, that's ALL THE PORKNBEANS you can... More

I was so excited to find Bubbalou's in Altamonte. We had ate at the one in Orlando and everyone loved it! I made a point to stop even though I went solo. I ordered the rib dinner. I believe it comes with four sides of your choice. I had baked beans, mac & cheese, coleslaw and garlic bread. The beans... More
