“Greasy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

Greasy food. Very dissapointed with our selection of ribs and pulled pork. After all the Hype, we expected more from this landmark.

“consistently good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

Not fancy, down to earth, good barbeque. Best baked beans around. Good value for price. We frequent the Altamonte site, which can be a bit difficult to access, but worth it.

“Very Good Barbecue. Very good Pulled Pork, Sauces, and TEA!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2012

I used to go to Bubbalou's a lot, down on Alafaya Trail south of UCF. But then I started working elsewhere and found that the portion sizes and quality at Bubbalou's was going downhill. That was about 7 to 8 years ago. In trying them recently, I find that Bubbalou's is BACK! The Pulled Pork, my favorite, is not fatty anymore, not like it had been for a while. They serve a really good southern BBQ meal for about $15 or so. I have ALWAYS liked the way Bubbalou's serves their tea! Big glass, you pour it yourself, and go home with a large glass (if you want.).
The atmosphere has opened up a lot with the advent of the garage doors and the bar, but I miss the elevated train. Watch it though, if you eat too much or drink too much (especially if you visit the bar!) - you just might think you see some flying pigs!
Wayne Brady grew up in Orlando, and bragged about Bubbalou's being his favorite place to eat down here.
Try it - you might find better BBQ, but you'll have to search real hard. If St. Louis or Kansas or Texas or Carolina BBQ is your preferance - bear in mind that Bubbalou's is Florida southern BBQ. It's good!

I had the pulled pork and it was good. The last trip I had ribs ad they were not as good. No waiting in line, good service.

“Consistently good bbq.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

If I can't make the drive to 4Rivers, Bubbalou's is my go-to for a bbq fix. The pulled pork or baby back ribs are always a hit and the baked beans are downright addicting. Good collard greens too.
