We had a 15 minute wait, no big deal. Enjoyed the bar, got seated, had a good meal. This is a fun place to go.

We had a slight wait on a Friday night in February. We were able to sit in the covered patio, which was nice since it still had an "outdoors" feel. The margaritas were delicious, the chips & salsa wonderful, and we had good fajitas and...More

A little above average Mexican cuisine. It is very crowded in season and extremely loud. Their Margaritas are the best that I have found on the island. A good time will be had by all.

A food TexMex option on the island. Nicely varied menu with a number of Tacos. Beer selection was unimpressive, particularly for a Mexican restaurant

Our waitress was helpful when we told her that we are vegan and helped us with suggestions and substitutions. They made some great veggie and tofu fajitas. I appreciate them being willing to work with our dietary needs AND coming up with something tasty.

Bubba Garcia's is tasty run of the mill Tex Mex joint that is so typical of any small town in which there is one notable Mexican restaurant. The food is good. I enjoyed my meal once it finally came. The whole scene is a nightmare....More

The food was ok. We went for Happy Hour and the margaritas were awesome! The place is kind of small and they are very particular about sharing meals (it's noted all over the menu). The grilled chicken quesadilla was good!

Have been eating at bubbas for over ten years ... good food, nice margarita menu, fun atmosphere. Guess you could call it beach - mex chic ... guacamole is good . Creative taco menu. Have eaten most everything on the menu and it's all good!...More

Definitely NOT the best Mexican I've ever had. The chips were cold, margarita was weak, portions small! If you just absolutely want a Mexican flavor then go.

Deplorable is the one word that describes Bubba's un less you only interest is getting drunk, getting in fights and getting in trouble!
