Bubba’s in Jackson Hole is famed for good BBQ at reasonable prices, and the Cody branch, westend of the main street, on the left, heading toward Yellowstone, is every bit as good, larger, and amore pleasant scene. Dinners feature chicken, pork, ham, and beef, long smoked over a wood fire, and three levels ofheat in Bubba’s own BBQ sauces. The chicken is quite dry from the long cooking, so we bury itin BBQ sauce. Beef, pork, and ham are best just accented with a little sauce. Ask the waitress ifcurly fries are available. There is an optional limited, but varied, salad bar. At diner, we usually go for the amazingly low priced sandwich with salad bar, a good meal forless than $10. Diners feature the same meat as the sandwiches with two sides and Texas toast. Coleslaw, baked beans, and fries, especially curly fries, are tops in the sides. Servings are large.The daily lunch special is real bargain, and the Tuesday BBQ pork sandwich with curly fries topsthe list.If you don’t already know it, be advised that beer goes good with BBQ.Although we have had countless meals in Cody, we have only eaten at two places. If we arereally hungry, we go to the buffet at Buffalo Bill’s Hotel Irma. If we aren’t that hungry, we go toBubba’s. We don’t try any other places because, having a lot of experience with eating in theinter-mountain west, we are pretty sure neither can be beat, so why run the risk of a sure bet ofgetting a lesser meal? If you know Bubba’s in Jackson, be advised that the Cody branch is not nearly as hectic and waitsseem to be rare (as of 2004).
