The seafood gumbo was fantastic. Made with good dark roux and chock full of seafood and just right amount of spice. As good as the gumbo I've had in some of the famous creole spots in New Orleans. If I had known it was that good, I would have ordered large bowl and made it my meal. Other items were pretty good too: hamburgers, burritos etc. But, the gumbo was the standout and worth going out of the way for a taste.

Not much more to say! Good food, good price, can you ask for more?! The staff were friendly and there wasn't a wait! Overall, a good experience and would go again.

I went here on a recommendation from the hotel. The tables were all full which was a good sign but we were seated pretty quickly. I ordered an olive cheeseburger that was suggested as a local favorite - sliced green olives, Swiss cheese on a 1/2 lb. beef patty. It was amazing! No one in our group had any complaints on their good and our server was attentive to our needs. The draft beer selection was ok but they have a large selection of regional craft beers in the bottle.

Bubba's is certainly a go-to for a great burger in TC! This place is always hopping so expect a wait at prime time, but never disappoints. Servers are busy but always attentive ~ keep up the great food!

This is a great place to hang out, enjoy some good food and some good drinks! They have an eclectic menu for both. Micro-brews - check, extensive assortment of bottle beers - check, awesome bloody marys- check, jello shots! - check...that's just a start. Check it out. You won't be disappointed. The staff was friendly and on top of their game as well.
