Comments Off on Bubbalou’s Bar-B-Que
The following review was submitted by Brian Pearcy aka “The BBQ Guy” on the BBQ Forum. Thanks Brian.
When we lived in Casselberry, FL, Linda and I were frequent visitors of Bubbalou’s Bar-B-Que located in Winter Park just off of 17-92 south of Maitland on Lee Road, a real bbq “shack”.
We tried two other locations, one in Altamonte Springs on 436 and another on Alafaya Trail near the UCF campus, and although those restaurants are more modern and had more inside seating, they just don’t measure up to the Winter Park location.
While waiting for your meal at the Lee Road location, diners are treated with a who’s who montage of head shots from some of the most popular musicians around including–Charley Daniels and Molly Hatchet among many others.
On a busy day most folks have to eat outside on picnic tables or in their cars because inside seating is limited, but we didn’t mind it. During the lunch rush, the parking lot fills up and for me that only added to the overall ambience of the place.
We always enjoyed the sliced barbecue pork, potato salad and baked beans and the barbecue sauce was pretty good too.
Sliced pork is not my personal favorite, but it worked when I had the craving for ‘que and didn’t have the time to cook it myself.
If you’re ever in Orlando, stop by Bubbalou’s in Winter Park. You’ll be glad you did.
Pick-up a t-shirt to commemorate your visit. They’re pretty cool.
