This is a good option for late lunch, because they have daily specials and happy hour for alcohol drinks from 3 to 7. Nice atmosphere, good service, very economical

Bubbas is a family friendly barbecue place in La Jolla. It does not look like much from the decor but the food is worth it. The pulled chicken sandwiches were tasty with a great sauce. Generous portions and friendly service and a bill under $40 for four people make this a good choice to eat in La Jolla. The smoked salmon salad with home smoked salmon was delicious as was the large baked yam and cole slaw. I highly recommend Bubbas for some excellent food!

Being locals, we always planned to try this place and were glad we did tonight! We wanted something flavorful and definitely found it here! My husband and I tried the baby back ribs. They were moist, juicy and delicious. The meat fell off the bone and they were not too fatty. I ordered sweet potato fries; again delicious. My husband had their homemade potato salad and beans. Both were great. The owners are a husband and wife team from New York, great personalities and they really care about the quality of their food and their customers. They were coming around making sure everyone was happy. Loved their sweet BBQ sauce. They also offer beer and wine, and a wide variety of drinks, plus their homemade iced tea. I can't imagine any BBQ place in Texas being better than this. We had great conversation, great food and look forward to returning!

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.
