    The parking validation machine didn't work! We were told to tell the speaker at drive out the machine wasn't working...... we had to pay for parking ! We asked for 2 expresso martinis we got whiskey with coffee .... Nachos with brisket no meat .. just a little on the top.... ! The brisket sandwich had two scoops of meat all bread no meat! COLD tater tots hardly cooked ...yuk..... BOTTOM LINE (( WHERE IS THE MEAT FOR THE PRICE...?)) OR GET THINNER BUNS SO AT LEAST IT LOOKS GOOD.

    Most of the desirable menu items were sold out by our Saturday 7:30pm reservation. What food we could order was good. Service was decent but could be a bit more attentive. The band was awesome. Drink special was great and a reasonable price.

    Everything was going great until a waitress stood right by the backs of our table and proceeded to bad mouth customers. Saying, one didn't leave her a tip and another would not leave and was just sitting there talking. Not at all smart and unbelievably unprofessional. Go talk in the back! Our waitress was Lorin M and she was fabulous. On top of everything, super sweet and always had a small on her face. She's definitely a 10⭐️ waitress!

    The table waiter was not great overall , we asked for separate checks for 3 couples and he said he could accommodate that request. At checkout he said he couldn’t have separate checks . He got the drink order incorrect a few times and the restaurant was about 70 percent occupied.

    My friends and I had a blast there for my birthday! Great service and energy. Only drawback was that they were sold out of Ribs, Brisket, and Burnt Ends by 8pm so most of our table couldn't order them, but as the birthday girl, I got the last batch of brisket. :-p Yum!

    Our Opentable reservation was acknowledged promptly and we were seated within a few minutes. Our server Paige was terrific! Totally there when we needed here…. Good suggestions, helpful in suggesting a substitute for unliked side items. The location was perfect for us to just walk over to Zanies for try he late show. Parking is plentiful at the Bub City in Rosemont. We will be back soon!

    Overall great experience and resembles somewhat of dive bars out in Nashville; not a whole lot of room for dancing though. Despite the busy Saturday atmosphere service was quick and smooth—if you’re looking for a quieter setting this is not the place for you, unless it’s a slower week day

    The food was amazing. The atmosphere was nice, even though we're not country music people. The vibe felt nice. Our waiter however was not very good. He was sort of rude, seemed completely disinterested, and barely seemed like he was paying attention to us. He made the experience less than it should've been. Really disappointing.

Weekday lunch service features the “Meat & Three” lunch special and family style options. Upscale Southern specials and comfort foods are also offered for more extravagant affairs.
  • Private party facilities
    Both Bub City and Joe’s Live offer event and party options for groups ranging from eight to 1,500 guests. From corporate dinners and bachelorette parties to VIP experiences in one of the private rooms that overlook the Joe’s stage, the space offers a wide variety of entertainment for groups. In addition to in-restaurant event capabilities, Bub City also provides off-site catering and rents out “The Rig,” a mobile barbecue trailer that brings the barbecue experience right to guests’ doors.
