My husband is a rib freak, but the ribs he had were mediocre at best. The entree was pricey for the quality of the food. Food order was dry and not hot, which is how you want your food to be when delivered.

We've gone to Bubb's Grub several times starting last year. And always raved about it. BUT We're not sure if they've changed owners or cooks but the last two times we were there the ribs were very overcooked and dry. It used to be a...More

I had a meal of pulled pork and beef brisket. The pork was wonderful. The brisket was not the best I have had but not the worst. It is a difficult meat to smoke. Love the Wisconsin and Big Ten environment in the bar.

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...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. If you like brisket, smoked properly and lot's of it. This is your place. The owners...More
