    My wife and I met friends from Little Rock for lunch at Stubby’s BBQ, it was the first time there for any of us. All four of us were very pleased with our meals. My Ribs were done just right with just enough of excellent sauce on them. My sides of Slaw and BBQ Beans were also excellent.

    This is definitely a “must” if you love BBQ. Awesome service from two very friendly guys when we arrived. The ribs and BBQ sandwich were very very good, not the absolute best ribs that I had ever eaten, but right up there near the top of the list. The atmosphere was very friendly and fun. By the way, you must have a “bowl of beans”, absolutely the best.

    Easily my favorite barbecue joint. Great, homey feel to the interior, friendly staff, and EXCELLENT pulled pork. The sauce is spectacular.

    Wow!. Stubby’s is the kind of bbq I grew up with and have missed since moving to Texas. The jumbo pork sandwich was very generous and good, their spuds are huge, and their ribs were delicious! You have to try their Pot-o-beans too!

    Great bbq. Great ribs. The people are friendly and have a great attitude. We bought their hats and shirts as our souvenirs from our trip. Would reccommend without a doubt.

    EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio – Dozens of East Cleveland residents living at the Beverly Terrace Apartments are now dealing with their eighth day with no heat at the complex.Apartment owner Robert Lyons and his company Classco Realty have made numerous promises that the heat would be restored and the broken boiler at the complex would be repaired, but so far no results.Lyons told NewsChannel 5 efforts to fix the boiler have failed because he’s been unable to find a contractor who is licensed to work in East Cleveland.NewsChannel 5 has taken action, calling in H. Jack’s Plumbing and Heating to get the job done, giving residents hope that the heat will be restored later this week. H. Jack’s has even agreed to waive thousands in labor costs to help expedite the repairs and restore heat to the building.Marcia King and her two young children have been forced to move out of the complex. King is now living with her mother.”How would the owner of this apartment complex like it if he had to deal with no heat for more than a week,” said King. “We really appreciate any help NewsChannel 5 can give to us.”NewsChannel 5 and will keep you updated on this developing story.

    Very nice people and clean restaurant, but maybe we didn’t make the best choice in what to order.

    Best bbq I’ve ever had. Staff was extremely friendly. My only regret was not having the time to go back a second time while in Hot Springs.

    Only been once. Was treated amazingly! “We’re out of baked beans and only make em once a day, but if you can wait 20 minutes I’ll go ahead and make you some “! They closed the restaurant, but let us stay like 45 minutes after to finish our huge meal! All done with a smile! Great BBQ, great people! Awesome sauce! Go!

    When you want the best Bar-B-Q in Hot Springs, you only have one choice. There’s the BEST and then there’s the rest. STUBBY’S serves up the BBQ for 70 miles or more! Nothing else satisfies, or hits the spot, like a plate of BBQ from Stubby’s of Hot Springs.

    We’re from Michigan and when visiting family in Hot Springs recently, we were told we “had to go to Stubby’s.” What an experience! It’s the cleanest restaurant we had ever been in. The owner, Chris, is reason enough to return because he’s so friendly and welcoming! But the food!! Oh, my! The bean pot, the succulent brisket, pork and chicken, the amazing potato, all enhanced with fabulous barbecue sauce! It was an incredible dining experience, and we can’t wait to go back!

    After seeing you on BBQ Crawl we stopped in for an ultimate potato. WOW!!!! GOOOOD!!! Saw you knew Adam Brown, one of our heros after reading his book, Fearless. We then went downtown and saw the Walk of Fame next to the Five Star Theatre. When we got back to Illinois we emailed Tom Wilkins of the Five StarTheatre to suggest Adam Brown be put on the walk. Adam probably deserves it more than anybody. Maybe you could say something to Wilkins also? Thanks and good job.

    Dear Mr Stubby,

    You probably won’t remember us but myself, my husband and sister (brother-in-law- was in the gun shop next door !) were passing through Hot Springs last October on our 8 week tour of the South (we are from Oxford and Greenwich, England). We happened to be looking at your menu out back when you came along and very kindly invited us in and showed us around Stubby’s, we particularly remember seeing (and smelling) the big vat of bbq sauce bubbling away.

    It was late morning, before you were officially open, so we couldn’t stay to eat as were moving on to our next stop, Clarksdale that afternoon.We were really sorry that we couldn’t stay, but as a parting gift you generously gave us 2 bottles of Stubby’s. Since arriving back home we have used that sauce constantly with friends and family who all agree that it is the best bbq sauce ever. That saying, I wondered if it would be possible to buy a case ? If so, would you be able to quote me a price, including shipping to England ? We’ve almost reached the bottom of the bottle now and summer is almost at an end and it would be wonderful to be able to start next year with a jar or two of Stubby’s.

    My many thanks for your kind hospitality and one of our many good memories of our road trip in the south.

    Kind regards,

    Pat Ellmore

Share your experience at Stubby's with others!
