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

Wonderful homemade tortilla chips and salsa, large portion sizes, good service, reasonable prices, gladly accommodated personal preferences. We had the nachos and Paleo Platter...a lot of really delicious food! Would go back again for sure.

My husband and I ate here with family while visiting my sister. I ate the best fajitas I have ever had! My husband had the nachos and loved them. The chips and salsa were fantastic and we all shared guacamole which was delicious! The portion sizes were large and we probably could have shared either of our dishes, but I... More

Interesting architecture, with inside tables, outside tables, and a transitional capacity to make them all inside. Most of my review is in the title, and that is meant to be simple and to the point, and not damning with faint praise. Later in the nights there will be parties sitting and discussing life over libations, and it's a relaxed, not... More

Was walking through the shopping area and stopped in for a bite and a beer. The supper crowd was winding up, and I was seated quickly. The restaraunt is rustic, but clean, and it has a nice beach like feel. Food They served free nachos and homemade salsa, and the waitress refilled me once. I ordered the chorizo appetizer and...
