I'm only rating this place based on the brisket. It's edible and had good smoke but it was way to dry to be called good brisket. Need to send the cook to Texas to learn how to cook it correctly

this is the place to stop! We have been here with large groups and just as a couple; when the place was full, and in the middle of the afternoon when it was practically empty- but the service and the food has always been spectacular. Reasonably priced with plenty of great choices!

My husband and I ate here for a late lunch. He got the half rack of baby back ribs and I got the pulled pork lunch, and we both got the salad bar. He drank water and I got sweet tea. With a meager 10% tip (due to poor service), our bill was almost $60...for a mediocre lunch. The salad... More

Ok place for BBQ....not outstanding, but certainly decent. Mostly I go for the fact that they have a darn good salad bar....the only decent salad bar in Cody.

My wife and I had just checked in at the Americinn Hote, and after a long trip it was handy to have this place right across from the car park of the hotel. It was well frequented though it was perhaps getting toward the end of the evening. Our waitress a young lady was very sweet and explained a few... More

Very tasty BBQ place. Everything we ordered was scrumptious. Friendly waitstaff. The salad bar was fresh. We even went to bubbas for breakfast and hands down it was great.

Good authentic barbecue at a reasonable price. Atmosphere is old west and down to earth. You will wait in line on the weekends.

We got here late, so rather than order from the menu, we just had the salad bar. It was a good salad bar, with lots of choices, so we were satisfied. I can't comment on the bar-b-que because we didn't have any. Maybe next time.

Had lunch here as our only day in Cody which was a must visit before we drove back to Salt Lake and then flew back to Australia after a couple of weeks holiday. A variety of choices on the menu and the portion sizes are large. I HATE to be negative but the quality of the meat was not great... More

We decided to try Bubba's Bar-B-Que in Cody again after 4.5 yrs to see if the food was better that our 2012 visit. And it was! We had great service with great prices! The Bar-B-Que Pork sandwich & the Beef Brisket meal were excellent. Enough meat for 2 average eaters all on 1 order for 1. We fell in love... More

Bubba's is only an hour’s drive from spectacular Yellowstone National Park. If you're looking for mouth-watering, hickory-smoked meats, look no further than Bubba's Bar-B-Que. Enjoy in the restaurant, or take it with you for picnics and road trips -- our meats are awesome alone or in sandwiches. We’re sure to have something to satisfy your hunger whether you’ve been hiking all day or are going to the rodeo in the evening. Not only do we have the best bar-b-que in Wyoming, but we also have sandwiches, burgers, steaks, an awesome salad bar, and great choices for the kids. Don't forget about our homemade desserts and generous selection of micro-brews.
