Love the opportunity to have real Southern BBQ, and while in Orlando, stopped here for lunch one day. Did the any two meat combo and was impressed. Granted, the pulled pork is better than the brisket. Sides are good and plentiful, and the ability to swap out sides (Hello Mac and Cheese!) was appreciated for members of our group with... More

Skip the bratwurst. Nothing more than boiled brats with BBQ sauce. Poor value at $12 with a drink. I ate half and left the rest. I won't return.

A friend and I hit this place up for lunch on a Tuesday. Small line at the register and the inside tables were full so sat outside on a cold day but they had heaters going so was ok. The food took a while but it was worth the wait. My friend got a full rack and I got the... More

We decided to try this place and we were all disappointed. The brisket lacked flavor and was not fall apart tender. The pulled pork, was ok, but dry and desperately needed sauce. The corn muffins were dry, the garlic toast lacked any garlic flavor, the cole slaw was bland and the baked beans, while tasty, were under cooked. We even... More

Bubbalou's has got to be the best in town! When we come to Orlando, which is a few times a year, we get to Bubbalou's as much as we can! Always a pleasure, never disappointed.

Order your food as you walk in and then wait for it to be delivered to your table. (I don't like this concept) The young guy taking the order was so distracted with everything going on around him that he didn't take our order right. Food was above average but we had to wait a very long time for a... More

Anyone who knows good bbq would rate them mediocre at best. The ribs are tasty and beans some of the best I have ever had, but the rest was just a sorry attempt to fill the plate with meat. The beef tasted like microwaved roast beef and pork was sliced thin and had no flavor. Make sure to specify pulled... More

The pork bbq and baked beans are amazing a definite must have when you come here. Nice laid back atmosphere and you can sit outside and enjoy your meal... highly suggest you... More

A trip to orlando would not be complete without a trip to the wonderful BBQ! Not only is it one of the best BBQ we have had but it is also great value. I had the cheeseburger meal and my wife the pulled poke sandwich meal. Both come with fries and beans. Huge portion and bursting with flavor. The burger... More

Some great tasting bbq. The pulled chicken is very tender. Try the black eye peas. And make sure you get the sweet sauce with your bbq.
