To Taste it is To Love It!! – First of all the service is super fast and friendly, kinda like being home. The BBQ IS SUPER ,it has a perfect taste and then you add the sauce. I live in Gaston County, but will gladly drive back there. In my opinion it beats Sonny's hands down, Someone else says the sides come out of a can, well I want to know the brand name... I'm going back today, now that I think about it!!

You gotta go take the test! – The food was amazing, great portiona, terrific ice tea. Pulled pork was to die for. If you are looking for GREAT bbq for a reasonable price... go see Bubba. and you have to take the test to see if you are a REAL man!!!

Bubba, we need to talk... – Being from "da dirty south" (the ATL), the expectations of BBQ is very high, and i found at Bubba's "Eastern Styled" Carolina barbecue is something different. Not very impressed with the flavor of the meats and the sides came straight out a can. The good thing about Bubba's was service was very good and a clean dining area.

Enjoy Eastern-style North Carolina barbecue with the locals. – The Scene

Just minutes from the city, this place is about as "country" as you can get, with linoleum floors, wood-paneled walls, an acoustical tile ceiling and country music playing on a speaker. Parents share hushpuppies with their kids, professionals throw their ties over their shoulders. A guy in an apron comes out of the kitchen and tells you to "eat more."

The Food

It's authentic Eastern-style barbecue, hickory-smoked and slowly pit-cooked for 10 hours. The pulled pieces (no slices here, sorry) are juicy even without Bubba's famous vinegar-based sauce. Hushpuppies, slaw and other Southern sides make this a meal fit for even a Northerner.

Southern favorites round out the menu: fried chicken, meatloaf, chicken fingers, ribs and Brunswick stew. Get a combo plate if you must, but definitely don't miss the barbecue.

East is best!!! – Being from Eastern NC, this is one of the true treasures of Charlotte. If you have never had Eastern style BBQ, you don't know what you are missing. A "10" all the way. BTW if you are liken to Sonny's or Carolina Country, you probably better go there, this is a different world! (not that I am downing Sonny's or Carolina Country, but there is a HUGE difference in East vs. West!)

Big Bubba Rules! – We looked long and hard for a place to get some Southern BBQ, and Bubba's was the place to be. From the pig out front to the food inside, I think it is one of better BBQs in the South and it gets rave reviews.
