This place is a bit hard to find as Google is slightly off. But the food is fantastic with neat twists on the usual like jalapeño potato salad.

Our group of 12 saw good reviews and decided to try Bubbas. Oh my goodness ! We pulled up under the overpass to park and when we got out to go in the smell was just awful. Smelled of human waste then we saw a blanket on the ground and knew it had to be where someone was staying. Big... More

What a great find! You will probably think I am nuts when you see the place! It is pretty much under an overpass and looks like a trailer put there by a guy named Bubba (probably was). Well let me tell you Bubba knows burgers! You can get Buffalo or beef, we tried them both and they were both excellent... More

I had the chili bacon cheese burger and loved it! Surroundings are rustic and the service is prompt and friendly. Will continue to come here for my "burger fix".

Oh. My. God. I extended my business trip a day for the sole purpose of returning to this place. The Buffalo Double Bacon Cheeseburger - words cannot describe. Although full, I wanted to order another. Classic shack - I will always make it a must-stop when in Houston.

Patty melt is great. An ESPN film crew was there today shooting a spot for the superbowl. Will always try to stop when in that part of town

I've been (regularly) eating burgers & drinking beer at Bubba's for nearly 30 years (not long after they opened). So much has changed & so much has stayed the same. Westpark has gotten bigger & busier. The train tracks (& the train specials on beer) are gone. The burgers are still among the best in Houston. Bubba's still doesn't have... More

Loooved their buffalo burger!! This place is kind of hidden so if you're not actively looking, you might miss it. The burgers were juicy and flavorful! Some homemade fries would be excellent with the burger but the chips definitely make the meal lighter. Their chili is also amazing and has a spice to it!! Definitely going back!!

The Buffalo Burger is the best. Top it anyway you like it. I eat here every month. Not much seating so I always get it to go. It is definitely a shack but the burgers are so good. The only thing to make this better is if they served fries. The jalapeño potato salad is a really good substitute.

When you pull up to this place, you will be underwhelmed. Once you get your food though, you will change your mind. This little joint sets right off a freeway, and serves up great burgers. They even have buffalo burgers! Food is great, staff are friendly, and place is probably rocking in the summer on the deck. I recommend!
