Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Five of our family orderdd a chicken sandwich, combo plate (with baby back ribs, beef brisket, and pulled pork), a child's plate sith hot dog and fries, and a pecan pie. Our sides were a bbq ear of corn, macaroni and cheese, and cole slaw. The meat was succulent, tasty, and tender. The sides were ample and overall very good. The coup d'etat was the pecan pie chock fuu of nuts, not overly sweet, and enough to feed all five of us. We have eaten BBQ all over the country and this is the best!

My wife and I ate here for Dinner while we returned to La Jolla for the sunset and loved this small BBQ place. The service was great, food fairly priced and full of Southern smoke and BBQ flavor. They had huge baked potatoes, great sauces and wonderful pulled pork. The owner walked around and asked how the food was and made sure everything was alright. Top Notch. Would love a place like this in Georgia.

A nice family restaurant with reasonable prices in a town with mostly overpriced food if you have children.

This place was the perfect find. We appreciate good Texas BBQ and couldn't believe how delicious this place was. I would give it 10 stars if possible because the staff was super nice too!

Every time we are in La Jolla, Bubba's is a "must eat" for us. Jeff - the owner is fantastic. You can tell that he is passionate about his establishment and his food. Looking forward to our next visit to La Jolla and Bubba's. You will not be disappointed.
