What I like about Bubby's is that anytime you go, you feel at home, you know what you're going to get, and you don't worry about whether or not they've gotten a new chef, because Ron's always in the kitchen and we love that wonderful man who brings us our plates of food made with love and kindness. I usually go on weeknights or even Saturday nights. I haven't braved the infamous weekend brunch lines yet, but someday soon! If you get nothing else, get the mac and cheese. My personal favorite are the velvety smooth meatloaf and gravy with the crispy onion strings crowning it, the BBQ brisket, and the potato chips with warm blue cheese dressing...to die for! Try to save room for dessert but if you can't, get your pie or cake to go. Their chocolate peanut butter pie is the best! Be sure to try their "seasonal desserts" like rhubarb pie, strawberry or peach pies...and their sour cherry is like no other. All their dishes are fresh, fresh, fresh...and they also have a really great bar if all you want to do is stop for a drink. Thanks Bubby's...you ROCK!

Bubby's I love you....but just not on the weekend. Bubby's is great. But can't uptown "business" folk go on weekdays (monday through friday.) On weekends, uptown folk flock and line up outside such that I can never go anymore on weekends (I will not stand in line for food I am paying for since I left the (now "former") Soviet Union 18 years ago.) I live in the area and wish it were not so trendy during the weekend. It is a diner. Are there not diners elsewhere?

Bubby's has become my standby comfort food restaurant. The bar-b-que is good, the sides are excellent (mac & cheese) and the desserts are amazing. Try the sour cherry pie and the melted chocolate cake. Though others have mentioned that it is overpriced, the portions are huge and not too expensive for New York.

If your focus has changed from people who liked your bbq and pie that have kids to mothers and crayon toting 3 yrs. olds who need a Salad and a happy meal you should have warned me before I sat down. I have been coming for yrs. I know the level bbq that you did bring to the table. Please don?t ever try to pass off pork that was cooked at a high temp for a shorter time as bbq again. A charred out side and a fatty fat fat inside shows it was just that. It might float with the tikes who don?t know better but for your customers who used to come in once or twice a month it just doesn?t float. It wasn?t a total wash you still have the best potato chips in town. Please pick up your game.

We went for our first time and had beef brisket and chicken fried chicken. As native Texans, we were a bit suspicious about BBQ outside our native state. However, this place has some of the BEST BBQ we'd ever had. The chicken fried chicken was fabulous as well. Excellent side dishes (we recommend the mac and cheese!). But, don't forget to leave room for dessert! Bubby's started out as a pie place, so they have great pies. They also have cakes and ice cream, but we didn't sample those. We also had fresh squeezed lemonade, which was great, but at $2.50 per glass, one would expect more drink and less ice. Minor complaint. Our waitress was courteous and prompt with our food (and check). The chairs were not the most comfortable ones ever, but they added to the down-home character and feel of the place. We spent $60 for a drink, entree and dessert for each of us, so a tad pricey. You could easily keep the cost down by sticking to water, or going for lunch! It's worth the price in any case. We loved it and can't wait to go back!

I lived in Soho and used to eat here all the time. People complaining about the prices must be from out of town, because it's actually pretty reasonable for NYC. Portions are generous, food is of the homemade "feel good" variety, and it's just a nice place to go when you are in a casual mood. Try their watermelon iced tea, it's ridiculous (when they have it).

A girlfriend and I found Bubby's after work one day and had a great time. The atmosphere was laid back (think kids with crayons, balloons at the entrance...really cute and friendly). Overall the food was solid. Can't go wrong with the burgers, which come with two sides of your choice (the hush puppies and broccoli were great). Sure it might be a little pricey, but you make up for it with the summer drink specials - $5 from their fun menu (try the Blushin' Russian)!
