Went yesterday for brunch and wound up spending $120 for ordinary diner food ( 4 people) My wife actually had to get up to request the butter she had asked for 15 minutes previously. $4 for a cup of coffee is ridiculous. $15 for an ordinary burger which was really not cooked properly, but I did not feel like returning it as my waitress had disappeared.

Went to Bubby's last weekend because I remember it fondly from years ago when I first moved to NYC. I could not have been more disappointed. We had a 45 minute wait for a meal for 3 which set us back $100 with tip (for food, no alcohol). The service was fine -- when we could find our waiter -- but I nearly not knocked out by a busboy who elbowed me in the head and then glared at me as though it was my fault. This restaurant is resting way too much on it's laurels and the fact that there are not a lot of alternatives in the neighborhood. Do yourself (and your wallet) a favor and avoid it.

The juevos rancheros are good and so is the ham christo sandwich (I don't actually remember the sandwich name). The food is very high quality and some of the best homefries I ever had-although they are not always served hot. The service can be good or it can be really bad. If you order blueberry pancakes don't be surprised if you can't find an actual blueberry inside even if you offer to pay extra for extra blueberries. The coffee is Irving Farms and it is delicious. The 7-grain toast is great. Everything is top of the line but it does cost an arm and a leg for food that isn't spectacular. The atmosphere is fun (lots of fancy people trying to look down to earth) but can be loud. I have eaten here many times but don't plan to go back. My last trip soured me. I am over it!

don't go if you have it. The food is good but way too salty.

I'll never understand it. I've been living in Tribeca for over a year and always saw a line outside of Bubby's. It makes the entire neighborhood smell like delicious bacon - it must be good, right? NO! I went with two friends, waiting 15 minutes to be seated and walked out $90 poorer. The portions were VERY small and nothing was particularly good. I got a lunch sandwich which was decently sized but my friends with the breakfast were less than full. Tiniest omelet I've ever seen. Might have used two eggs - and 1/2 a potatoes worth of hashbrowns. No idea why this place does so well. Won't be going back.

$20 Cobb salad took 1 hour to deliver 3 blocks.. wilted lettuce, wrong dressing. Thrown together and not very tasty. Scary delivery guy. so sad because I always support the local joints, but the food has really gone down hill.

I have lived in Tribeca for 6 years and I have been to Bubby's numerous times. It had been a year since I last went, however, and this past weekend will surely be my final time. We decided to get breakfast at Bubby's on the Fri of July 4th weekend, knowing that the typically painful wait wouldn't be so bad with much of NYC out of town. We were seated right away which was great but that is the only positive thing I can say. I ordered Bubby's breakfast, which is simply 2 eggs, toast, home fries, and bacon or sausage and "fruit". I do not eat meat and asked for an alternative to the meat portion. Asked for a pancake, waitress with a n attitude said no it would not be possible. Asked for extra fruit, waitress said they could do that. Other person at breakfast ordered an omlette - it was $19. we both got a cup of coffee and he got a lemonade. that was it. Food arrives, with one skinny slice of cantaloupe, which is the "fruit" that it comes with. I asked what happened to my extra fruit in place of the meat? Waitress (again quite rude and uninterested in the situation) said that was all she could get me, and asked if I'd like to order...and pay for...a $10 fruit cup. She refused to give me anything else as part of my meal. Cost of my dish which in the end was eggs, toast, home fries with tiny slice of cantaloupe - $17 total cost of breakfast for two, with tax and tip - $60. also they do not accept credit cards for bfast/brunch. the sign on the door makes it sound like it is just a one off instance, but they have been doing it for years.
