The highest quality meat, a meticulous attention to detail, years of experience and a deep love for barbecue are what set Bubba Q out from other American restaurants in Edinburgh. Bubba and Eddie, proprietors and barbecue aficionados running the show at Bubba Q in the Old Town were impressed by the amazing barbecue restaurants they encountered during their travels in the US, and they set out to bring that same down-home country cooking to Scotland. Now, with their very own signature dry rub and a whole lot of dedication, they’re putting their High Street restaurant on the city’s competitive culinary map.
A dream come true for meat lovers, Bubba Q features a menu they can be proud of. From tender, juicy beef brisket to a wide range of burgers, hot dogs, southern fried chicken, ribs and wings, this Edinburgh restaurant has the food you’ve always dreamed of, and then some. We love the Pitmaster Platter, a selection of all the barbecued favourites on offer including hot links, baby back ribs, juicy chicken with a Cajun dry rub and beef brisket. Vegetarian? Don’t fret – Bubba Q has some amazing meat-free dishes to keep you satisfied, like their Big V, a halloumi burger with roasted red pepper, avocado, crispy onion strings and a homemade chilli jam. Of course, if you want to really enjoy your meal the American way, loosen up your belt and enjoy one of their to-die-for desserts (the sticky toffee pudding is on the next level). Swing by and taste the American dream at Bubba Q in the Old Town, but make sure to book your table in advance during peak times!
