If you enjoy Mexican food, you'll like Bubba Garcia's. I had chicken fajitas, and my husband had enchiladas. They give you plenty of chips and salsa. We had an outdoor table. The service was very good. Nice, casual atmosphere.

You can never go wrong here for lunch or dinner. The Nachos are great. Have the ground beef Nachos with a side of guacamole and more chips! Excellent! The clientele is mostly local during December, as it should be since the summer season has passed! Nice place. If you want to eat outside they have heaters!

We are here for the RSM Classic PGA tournament. We got here early for the the Happy Hour and enjoyed great Margaritas for $3.50 and Dos Equis for $3. The chips and salsa were great. We had the triple tostada and it was great. The flavors of the beef, beans, avocado perfectly balanced and the lettuce was still crisp, not... More

Ate her last night, after an absence of a few years, and very pleasantly surprised. As ever it's a casual dining spot but the serve was very friendly and the food tasty and reasonably priced. I had the Chipotle salmon on a bed of vegetables and a bottle of Sol for $19 and enjoyed it immensely. Only one issue. We... More

We were recommended by a local to eat here for a good casual meal and amazing Margaritas! Outside seating is prime with a few seats inside. Small bar downstairs and a large bar upstairs for those who want to hang out and meet people in the evening. We ate here twice and bought a t-shirt!!

Good food. Great service. Located in a wonderful local shopping area with lots of great shops. It has a bar on the second floor that seems to be very popular also. We enjoyed one of our evening meals here during our vacation on this wonderful island.

We left the house to have pizza but that restaurant was closed so we stopped at Bubba's without doing much research on the restaurant. The result was a good meal with friendly service. I had the beef tacos and my wife opted for the chicken quesadilla. The tacos were excellent with fresh shells and tasty filling. My wife also enjoyed... More
