Closest Big Bubbas is now in Paso Robles. We went to Visalia's several times and the food was OK but the atmosphere was pretty good. They would get you in with the free birthday meal expecting many people with the birthday and what was interesting...More

There is a reason for the closing. Not good. Several times, out of three or more people, only one meal was good. The sister property in Lemore (30 miles away) is also closed.

Big Bubba's Bad BBQ was mediocre on a good day -- way too noisy and crowded, food only so-so. Then they became Ethel Red's. The food was affordable, but not great. They kept prices down by not using servers. Prices increased, and crowds stayed away....More

We really like the food here at first although it was always pretty noisy with small kids running around. It didn't take too long for them to start going downhill. This place closed a while ago and was replaced by Ethel Red's which is now...More

They raised there price, now there gone. The breakfast was only a good buy at $5.00 including drink. After they raised there price I wouldn't go back and I guess a lot of people quit going there also.

The price of breakfast went up and they charge for a drink to. Now you can get a better breakfast anywhere else for the price. At least if they had hash browns it would help. Won't be back.

I ordered baby back ribs and received what looked like huge spare ribs. When I asked the waiter to exchange them for what I had ordered he said "those are baby back ribs, they are just from a steroidal pig! Yuk

I'm so glad Big Bubba's is gone and now there's a decent place to eat at now. At Ethel Red's (also in Lemorre,Ca.) you walk in and Order, grab a cup, and get a drink, then sit wherever you want. When they call your number...More

It has closed and turned into a place called Ethel Red's The bucking bull is gone but don't worry the noisy unattended children remain shrieking up and down the wooden stairs. I couldn't make it all the way to be seated.
