We all enjoy Bub's, even the gluten-free vegetarians among us. The meats are cooked to the appropriate tenderness and the barbecue sauce is yummy. The side dishes are plentiful, varied, and all you can eat self-serve. We've been going here for decades. It really is...More

Bub's is a local institution for BBQ fare. While it isn't gourmet BBQ in any way, it is comfort food that is consistently enjoyable if you like Bayou/Southern style BBQ and it's accompaniments. Smokey and sweet/savory all at the same time. The sides are not...More

We took our mom for Mother's Day w the grandkids. Amazing BBQ, the sides were tasty. You have to try the smoked kielbasa! Very busy, but the service was fast and the restaurant was clean. We will be back here again!

This is a true southern barbecue joint in New England. Relaxed, down home atmosphere, good main courses and unlimited sides in great, classic variety. And even fried green tomatoes. Food and drink at low prices, good draft beer selection, and friendly staff. Yum!

Nothing is that great at Bub's, but it's also not terrible. The brisket is okay. The sides are okay. The cole slaw is soupy with too much mayo and liquid. The sweet potatoes are too sweet. The hickory potatoes have a weird texture. The french...More
