When Dave sold the Hitching Post I was very skeptical when the new owner immediately closed to redecorate and it was rumored everything would change. Those fears were greatly reduced in my first visit and meal. While the Hitching Post family fare menu had certainly changed, it was a good change as I truly enjoy good barbecue. Although changed, the... More

Ask for the brisket sandwich. Bun, butter and fresh brisket. Some times the simple way is best. No sauce here as the true flavors just explode in your mouth.

We had a good dinner - ribs and brisket were very good. Beans were too spivey for my taste. Unfortunately the acoustic in the restaurant are horrible. Very hard to carry on a conversation. They need to hang something on ceiling and walls to absorb the noise

My wife raved over the chicken noodle soup and I smiled all the way through the chili. The servers are friendly and hustle.... More

The ribs were great, tender and tasty. The sauces were spiced nice without just being hot. Service was fast and friendly. Should come back for the other daily specials but it is a hike for us but will definitely be back. Prime rib on Saturday sounds intruiging.

Bubbs is located in the little town of Catalina, about 25 minutes north of Tucson on the way to Oracle. It's a beautiful drive, cooler than in town and the BBQ is terrific. We had a cold beer and ribs. The pulled pork at the next table was inviting but had to try the ribs...they were excellent..unique decor and friendly... More

Third time at this restaurant last night! Amazing food and great service! One of us had the special which was Prime Rib and three of us had their famous Ribs. Large portions perfectly cooked. Great sides. Fun atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Always a good option for homestyle BBQ!

Went for the cod fish fry on friday. Very good. My wife and I were not real hungry so we split a three piece order with an extra order of slaw. Will order an extra pc of fish next time. Very good. Great service. Hosts were very friendly.
