Fantastic service and great food. We love the happy hour old fashions and back porch tea! The brisket is like butter and they ask if you want it on the lean, fatty or a little of both. Such a fun time.

I was kind of Leary going in because the place seemed a bit out of place for my crowd. I must say we were amazed at the great service and delicious food

When ordering a pizza with a different topping on each half of the pizza, we were not informed there would be two additional separate charges for the request. Also, Instead of fries as a side for my sandwich, I was told I could order a side salad instead. However, on the bill, it was an extra charge. Staff need to tell customers of these charges.

Always a good time at Bub City. Happy to return to what had been a regular spot for me and multiple circles of friends and/or coworkers to go to for great BBQ, live music and outdoor seating. Wonderful way to spend an evening after work. So happy things are opening back up.

Brisket was dry. Small portions and overpriced for quality. Had to continually wave server down for refills of water, extra napkins and drink orders.

The brisket was delicious and tender. Didn't actually need a knife to cut it. could use some type of salad or vegetable with it though.

Everything was excellent. Service a little slow but I think that is just to be expected with the limited service staff due to the pandemic. But the server we had was awesome and busting his but to get to everyone.

We ordered family style for 8 adults and 2 kids. Our table wasn’t set up though we pre ordered for a special event. Plenty of food and it was delicious. The pitcher of Sangria was not good, and the margarita wasn’t amazing either. The service was lacking. Our server was new, and I wish they hadn’t given us 1 new server for the event we had and money we spent. The appetizers came out quickly, but we waited for our food for quite a long time, and we also waited for cups for our pitchers. Server was very friendly though.

Porch tea- too much ice (premixed) $40 per pitcher waay over priced.

Food over priced for quality.

With high prices and low quality, I would not return.

High price / low quality bad recipe for success.

We arrived at our reservation time 7pm. Already out of shrimp & pork. Upcharged us for the brisket because the standard pork that comes on the appetizer was sold out NOT because we wanted brisket. Then ordered a chicken sandwich and came out with everything on it when requested nothing on it. Sent it back and just had it taken off the bill. They charge a 5% covid charge which as a business owner I understand Covid caused great issues but that 5% is NOT going to the employees. It is going to the corporation (which already received plenty of government assistance) so I had the charge removed and gave the additional 5% directly to the server.. who decided to come back to work and not stay on unemployment. I reward the hard working.. not the cooperation that received assistance & is not paying it forward. I will not be returning to any Lettuce Entertainment restaurants or to Bub City.

I’ve been to the downtown location many times as well as once to this location. We had 6:00 reservations
I had the pit master. The ribs and brisket were over cooked. I know this isn’t normal. But was still very disappointing. Especially with the competition in the area.

The Giddyup fries were awesome! Unfortunately the pizza was not that great for me. I dont know how I ended up with 1/2 cheese and 1/2 of what I really wanted. Oh well... Service was great.

Although our overall experience was good, we traveled 52 miles round trip. With the additional COVID tax, the cost for our party of two with tip was $116.00. With that said, I’m not sure I’d be willing to travel that distance and pay that kind of money for what we had.

My kids love Bub city, they’re happy to be there all the time. We usually wait to be greeted by a waiter and also wait for our food/drinks WAIT WAIT WAIT. Sunday’s seems to be the low staffed day. But this past Sunday on mother’s day, we we’re surprised that there was no wait whatsoever. Our food came super fast and the service was good!

Overall we’re fans of Bub city!
