Big Bubba's BBQ reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Are you freaking kidding me?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 11/6/2012
    Are you freaking kidding me? We drove over an hour because of the reservation I was able to make on your sit & the restaurant was CLOSED & had been for 2 weeks. THANK YOU for messing up my daughters 16th birthday.

    So it is funny you would ask for a review on my experience at Bubba's that never happened. And the reason it NEVER happened is because they are not open..Needless to say my party and I were extremly dissapointed being that it was a birthday party for Me..So we ended up at Jaspers Summer Shack next door and had to wait for 30 minutes, waitress forgot about us , 1 hour later relized it and came to us to tell us she forgot about us....Free soup did not make it better...So I would LOVE to say that I enjoyed Bubba's but never had the opportunity.. I think there should be alittle more communication between Open Table and the Restaurants you support. I have used Open Table in the past and never had a problem. Hope this isnt the first of many.

    We made a reservation a few days before, but could not make it to the restaurant on time due to unexpected traffic on the highway (2 1/2 hour ride). I called the restuarant an hour before, asnd they graciously made our reservation for a half hour later. Our table was waiting when we arrived! I was highly impressed!! Great food-great service.... we will definately go ther again.

    We had a great dinner and a great waiter who was patient and kind to our son. We were at Mohegan for a kids concert and I'm sure they don't typically get many children in as diners in a casino. They were fabulous. Thanks again!

    We went to Bubba's on a busy Saturday night. Zac Brown was playing in the arena, and there was a promotional give-away in the grand ballroom. We had 6:30 reservations. When we arrived at the restaurant, there were lines of people. We walked right up to the host and gave our name and reservation time. She immediately picked up the menus and walked us to our table. Thank you Open Table, and Bubba's for making the night even more enjoyable.

    Always reliable, great chicken and ribs. Big Bubba's is a great mid-priced restaurant when you're looking for a nice dinner that doesn't use up all the money you need for the casino games. See my other review for more details.

    Dined on 8/12/2012
    Bubba's has the cool retro restaraunt feel lika a "Sticky Fingers" in jacksonville, FL. I had a good time & a real good meal. The price was Ok for 2 but it was in a casino. We were attending a concert that night so it was very busy. I made an online reservation, highly recommended. The beef brisket melted in my mouth, I want to go back and try more of the menu. Loved the "hush puppies"

    we always went to bubba's when we would go to mohegan sun,we have not been up there for awhile,so I went on bubba's site for mohegan and the menu was what we always received when we got there.So we were very surprised when we sat at our table and was given a menu that looked like a diner menu.The things we always ordered were no longer available and the menu that we were use to was not even there.So much to say,babba we always enjoyed comming to your place to have a good meal,however sorry to say you lost us as customers because of the menu. Thank You.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/1/2012
    It took a while for a waitress to acknowledge our table, and the restaurant was not busy. When she did, she was great- good personality, etc. Food was only fair. Some of the meals were missing sides that should have been included (corn bread). No ribs available which was disappointing. Waitress never brought change back to table (only a couple of dollars). Gratuity was included in the bill, although we thought that they only included it for parties over 8 (we had 6). Would probably not revisit.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    This was the worst bbq I ever had. I ordered the pork ribs expecting sloppy juicy ribs. I received the dryest ribs ever. It was as if they were previously cooked too much and then put back on the grill to heat up to serve to me. They were like tasteless burnt cardboard. my wife ordered the chicken at stated the breast part was also very dry. The food is not served fresh. Very big disappointment for a high price.

    Platters were huge. Way too much food for me. On they way out noticed that we should have gotten a free dessert for spending over $50.00 but we weren't offered dessert. Not sure if it was an oversight or because we weren't able to finish our meals. Otherwise food was good and service fast!

    I made my reservation for four through Open Table. I tried to call the day before to up the reservation to six, but they said they had nothing available for six people. When we arrived they went to seat us at a big table that could fit six that was jammed in between three other large tables, but we only had four people. I asked if we could move to an empty table for four that was a few tables away and the girl seating us said "I doubt it". After asking agian she said the waitresses were on a shift change and we might have to wait 10 minutes to be served, which we were fine with. The Waitress amde up for that poor service with Great!! service and we letr the manager know. Food was great, huge servings.

    Always reliable, Big Bubba's is our favorite of the mid-priced restaurants at Mohegan Sun. Ribs and chicken are best - the steaks are only fair. Sides are awesome - macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, collard greens, pickled beets, cole slaw and potato salad, to name a few. The service is friendly and prompt. What more could you want when you need a break from the casino?
