It was our first time trying this restaurant out. Our schedule was running late so we were only able to order takeout. We both ordered the brisket and we were completely satisfied! The fried corn, broccoli & the barbecue sauce was delicious!!! Definitely will return!

We were shopping nearby and decided to retry this bbq. We were the first customers of the day. The restaurant was clean but the decor is a bit off putting. The seats on the benches were either really holed or had black duct tape on...them. The sweet potato nachos may have been good but we were unable to eat them. They used shredded cheese instead of a liquid and everything stuck to the paper. Even when you tried to pull them away, paper was still attached. The pulled pork on top was delicious. Our sandwiches could have been better. We got the garlic bread and it was completely soggy. After tossing them to the side, we just ate the meat. It was good, but not the greatest.More

Approached Entrance and Waitress Staff Out Smoking. Wanted to eat outside but table with stools were Full of Dirty Dishes! Watched Waitresses come back in to the Bldg and continued to work (No Hand Washing or Hand Sanitizer). Food - All you can eat Ribs...were NOT Hot, sides were lacking in quantity!

PPE was Not in Use, Distancing Not Followed! Visited on Oct 7th @ 5:30. Snotty Waitress.More

Decided to try Bubbaques after hearing about it from new friends. The website for ordering online was a bit of a challenge initially and took three attempts to get there order in for pick-up. At any rate, the order wasn't quite ready and i arrived...a bit early. Very cordial hostess (didn't get her name but very cheerful brunette with a pony tail) got me an iced tea and pace to sit. The order came up quickly, packed into two bags. The hostess asked me to bring my case to the door and she brought my order out! Stellar Service! The food was very good. My Combo 3 (Wings, BBQ Chicken & Brisket) was large and well prepared except the brisket was shredded rather than the advertised "hand sliced". The salad +2 meats (Chicken tenders) was large but the advertised 4 tenders had to have been very small, but had been chopped up so it was hard to tell. I also wanted to try their smoked sausage and asked for an order of links. This too had been sliced into small discs. very good flavor but not exactly what i asked for. The To-Go order was packed with plenty of condiments. Not perfect but a good enough visit to warrant another trip.More

During this stay at home order we are experiencing it is important to find good take out food that has the same flavor as dine in and is packaged correct and is still hot when you get home. I found that BubbaQue's has got this...nailed. The drive up they constructed is safe and very functional.More

The wings are good. They're smoked and tasty. Good choice of sauce flavors. We also had the fried green maters. They were ok.
