Hot fresh burgers and wings. Great service overall. I love finding new places that are in out of the way places. We will be going back soon

Goehner is like many, many tiny midwestern towns. A large school building with boarded up windows, little commercial activity, and a collection of well kept homes - but Goehner also has Chez Bubba Cafe, and this is why you must find time to visit Goehner....More

Lunch at Chez Bubbas Cafe in tiny Goehner, Nebraska, was the highlight of a recent day trip and a reminder that there are good things to be discovered in small places. Great food, friendly service and a fun atmosphere. This is mostly a barbecue and...More

We were doing the 2017 Nebraska Passport when we stopped here for dinner. Goehner is a very small town and it was amazing to find such a great restaurant right off I-80. The three of us each ordered something different and we were all pleased...More

We all wanted to like Bubba's more than we did. The waitress was super sweet, but overwhelmed, so the meal was slow from start to end. The BBQ pork sandwich was dry and needed more sauce than it should to be eaten. Salad was good,...More

I have been here before and enjoyed the meal. This time was hit or miss. The service was GREAT! The pretzel was incredible. One was big enough for all 4 of us. My issue was with my burger. It was topped with BBQ sauce, cheese...More

Chez (pronounced "Shay", meaning "home of" in French) Bubba Cafe serves mouth-watering barbeque, steaks, home-ground burgers and more. Located in Goehner, Nebraska, we offer comfortable, home town dining and a full bar. Our outdoor beer garden is adjacent to the village park making it easy to enjoy good food and then send the kids off to play while you enjoy adult conversation or our weekend entertainment. Chez Bubba owners and business partners Brennan and Patty Lavelle and Matt and Julie Howe used to get together at each other's homes on a regular basis to discuss the possibility of opening a restaurant in their small town of Goehner. The vision for their cafe was a nice place where you could get fine food or meat-n-potatoes in a comfortable, down-home atmosphere.
