BubbaLou’s bodacious barbecue is a pretty cool spot here in Altamonte Springs. The one thing I really love about BubbaLou’s is the fact they seem to always have a lunch special that’s very easy on the wallet and good on the tummy! For instance on Mondays they have a $3 pulled pork sandwich. How in the world can you beat that kind of deal?
Another cool thing they offer to kids is a free snowcone with a purchase of a meal. Adults also can get a snow cone but it’s $1. Either way it’s a great addition to an already southern classic feel as you enter the building.
As I walked into BubbaLou’s Bodacious barbecue I noticed they had a huge trophy case of T-shirts that they had for sale. I did not purchase one but I kind of felt bad for not buying one after I left because it was so good.
As usual I ordered the pulled pork sandwich and french fries with a side of baked beans. That always seems to be my go to meal at a new barbecue restaurant. After I ordered my meal the lady at the counter gave me a wooden spoon with a number on it. At first this confused me but then I realized that is how they know what I order. Another great Southern classic! Just when I think that this place can’t get any cooler I realize that they have Cheerwine!! Yes, cheerwine!!! The legend!!
So as I finally get my sandwich I noticed the pulled pork is stacked on a hoagie bun. I never had a pulled pork sandwich brought out on a hoagie but there is a first for everything. The sandwich was very good and definitely a different feel because the hoagie was toasted. I tried a few other different sauces that they offered and I couldn’t find one that wasn’t good. They literally have different sauces to please anyone’s type of barbecue. Finally someone gets it!
I deathly will go back to Bubba Lou’s bodacious barbecue because I definitely need to try the ribs and other sandwiches. If my first visit is anything like the next few, I have a feeling this could be my favorite barbecue place in Orlando…I mean Altamonte Springs.
Also follow them on twitter for BBQ advice, it’s great to see local restaurants use social media. @BubbalousBBQ
