Tender Meat and Lots of It: Bubb's Grub

Posted By on Mon, Aug 22, 2011 at 10:09 AM


People often lament the number and quality of barbecue joints in Tucson, a problem that should be largely fixed by the opening of the new Mr. K’s, the new Brushfire BBQ, the new goings on at Hog Pit Smokehouse and the new place the cooks from the original Mr. K’s on South Sixth Avenue are working up.

When I hear concerns over the local barbecue situation my mind often drifts to Bubb’s Grub in Catalina. The place serves some really good barbecue, and the menu is enormous. Rita Connelly, the Tucson Weekly’s awesome restaurant reviewer, also gave it the thumbs-up when she reviewed it back in 2005.

We made the drive up there just the other day and had a killer meal. From the samples of prime rib offered by the waitress to the smoky chicken, it was all tender and delicious. The gigantic portions and margaritas didn’t hurt, either.

The waitress told us her relaxing summer is about over and that she was already bracing herself for the return of the retirees to the nearby Saddlebrooke community, when business jumps to lines-out-the-door busy. She said the Wisconsin fish frys on Fridays — the owner is from Wisconsin and special orders his walleye and other fish from his home state — are especially busy.

There’s more information about the restaurant over here.
