The original location on Rock Springs Rd. Still putting out fine for BBQ over 50 years now. Building is much different from the shack that I first encountered in 1961 but food is same. Baby back ribs falling off the bone tender n tasty.
BBQ beans are exceptional here with smoked meaty tidbits.
Cole slaw is average.
Cannot recommend sweet potato tots, not bad but not tasty either.
Collared greens a bit bitter only average.
Brunswick stew?? Forget about it.
The meats are what they do very well, excellent service at this location.

I judge BBQ places by two elements. 1. How good their ribs are. 2. How good their brisket is. There are other factors that add to that. Cleanliness - Bubbalous' is very clean. Sauce - Good choices at Bubbalous love the mild and sweet sauce and spicy is SPICY. Use caution.

But if their ribs are the perfect blend of tender smokey flavor and the brisket is juicy and not too fatty. If they can do these two thing right, everything else is wonderful. The people are great and you can be assured you will leave completely filled. Take some home though and at least try one of their desserts.

Of all the BBQ places in the area, we always choose Bubbalou's. The atmosphere is of course casual and tbe food is consistently good.

In the past six visits, the order was served correctly about 2 times. The quality of the baby back ribs has gone from excellent to fair with an obvious downgrading of meat quality purchased. Often the food is served cold.
