The waitresses were always friendly, but the old bond hair lady (mgr) was so curt and rude. I ate here often, but over time the service and food went downhill fast. Poor smoked flavor on brisket, poor food presentations, always running out of food that...More

Having frequented the restaurant for breakfast, we were saddened to learn the lease holder wants to open up their own restaurant, and has 'squeezed' Bubbas staff out. With all the negative reviews, I can honestly say breakfast was the better meal there. I do wish...More

Of course, in matters of taste, honest people can disagree. I was surprised by the number of negative votes on Bubba's. My wife and I have been eating at Bubba's for years. The Sunday morning brunch is best in our opinion, followed by the all-you-can-eat...More

For starters, the food was awful. Very dry and bland. The blonde older looking "lady" who I believe manages the place was very rude and unprofessional. You can get better food and customer service at a McDonalds.

Pulled pork, ribs, chicken, take your pick all were luke-warm and dry to the extreme. A plus was that they had BBQ sauce on the table to drown it. Thought staff was friendly until going to the salad bar. Why would you sell that when...More

First of all, I've been to Bubba's a few times and love the one in Jackson WY, but this one needs to improve A LOT! I've tried their breakfast(very greasy) and their dinner is worse then a TV dinner. I ordered the fish and chips...More

nothing beats bubbas for bbq with great sides and the best of service and price to boot. the ribs are to die for and they accommodate kids and elderly real well. good choices of sauces for the adventurous or mild

If you like BBQ, Bubba's is for you. Casual, spaceous, quiet, complimented by attentive service. And be prepared for large servings. (Try 'em for breakfast, too -- mmm!) While wine is available, I'd like to have a selection, but the lack of a wine list...More

Decent BBQ in the Intermountain West is hard to find, so it's with pleasure that I've been coming here for the last fifteen years or so whenever I pass through. Yes, it takes an extra two or three minutes off I-15, but it's easy to...More

Bubba's is our go-to when taking out-of-town guests out to dinner. Never a wait. Always delicious. Local favorite of 1/2 pulled pork and 1/2 beef brisket makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Yummy signature sauce comes on the side so you can tailor...More
