I can hardly write this right now because it's closed until February; my mouth is watering thinking about those smoky-sweet, savory tender ribs that slide effortlessly from the bone. The pulled-pork is so good, too. I never have been a big fan of coleslaw until I had it here; now I'm obsessed with it. I miss them so much when... More

I went with friends who are experts on bbq as in TEXAS BBQ. I don't eat meat, so I had a shrimp cocktail. Big, juicy shrimp and delicious sauce.

Bubba's Barbeque is just what you would expect in Eureka Springs for a Barbeque place. The food is excellent along with the side dishes and the price is reasonable.

Restaurant served good food, family atmosphere. They had a couple of specials and a special dessert. We had a cheese/sausage try for appetizer. The sausage was tasty. I had potato soup which was ok. My husband had brisket that he liked. We shared a generous dessert that was really good.

Service was good. Food was average. We were there during a very quiet time of the year. Boyfriend had a bbq sandwich and I ordered the pork nachos which came out missing the pork..

Food was excellent. My husband had the ribs and they had lots of meat on them. I had pulled pork sandwich. Good flavor. The sides left a little be desired.

BBQ was good and service was great! Conveniently located across the street from the Treehouse Cottages. Generous servings, one sampler plate was plenty for two people to share.

We stopped here for lunch after seeing Eureka Springs. The bbq sandwich and fries was very good. The servers were very nice. I would return if i was ever in this area again.

My daughter and I had the ribs! Really good and we got so many we couldn't eat them all. My husband had pulled pork and he had no trouble eating all of his. Our son-in-law had brisket and everyone enjoyed their meals.

Thank nclemm
