Great food and love the live music.
The service is fantastic and the food is usually pretty good. Looks like they underwent a menu change and took off my favorite items so that was a bummer. Plus they got rid of the bloody mary bar and raised the mimosa prices. Still a good spot, but may not so much for brunch any more.
Pastrami was godly!
NYE at Bub City was so much fun! It wasn’t too crowded. We ate at 8:30pm and the band came on around 9:30pm. The service was excellent. I’d highly recommend for anyone who likes country.
They no longer offer their Bloody Mary bar and the menu has changed. Meh....
always a terrific night - love this place! Recommended for a great night listening to county music
The food we had was ok but for some bizarre reason the lunch menu has far more choice than the evening menu. Must admit I have never seen that in a restaurant before. Really disappointing as so many better options were not available to us. As a result we won’t be returning. Bonkers decision made by the restaurant management.
The menu was limited and centered on meat. Vegetarians had the option of one salad and a Brussels sprout side. In my opinion, fried pickles don’t count, although technically they are vegetarian. Our server was attentive. The space was inviting and decorated for the holidays with colorful string lights.
Food was decent though I got the feeling that they get a crowd that likes to be out the door in under 30 minutes. I was told my chicken would take 15 minutes, as if that's a bad thing. For reference, this was a Friday night.
Food was really good. Kids and adults alike enjoyed their meals.
Staff was very unfriendly, took over 20 minutes to get waited on. She only came when I asked who our waitress was. Did not greet us, just asked what we wanted. Food took another 25 minutes to come out. We were on lunch break. Got there at 1:05 and left at 2:25. Too long
If you are in the area. Then it’s a cool spot. The food is to die for but the portions are almost nonexistent. Extremely small for the price. Drinks are good but overpriced as well.
No more Bloody Mary bar. So sad. Always brought guests here fo that experience.
I love taking my team here for fun outings. The lunch deals are awesome and everyone leaves stuffed! I know it's a country-western theme, but the only downside, and this is extremely personal, is that I'm not a fan of country music and it gets played pretty loudly. But that doesn't keep me from coming back again and again.
We always love the atmosphere at Bub City in Chicago! Such a great place to enjoy dinner and a drink along with some music!!
Large open space which is fairly noisy.
Food is slanted towards BBQ which is pretty good but not great.
Plenty of beer selections on tap and by the bottle or can.
Service is friendly and efficient.
They were super flexible holding out reservation for 30 mins due to traffic!
Great ribs but service a bit slow for not being so busy. Couldn’t decide on a beer so server referred us to the manager as she wasn’t very knowledgeable so when the manager took over, it was a very big help. We appreciated her referral
Constant loud country twang music in the middle of an urban restaurant. Didn't expect that. Reservation for 3:30pm. Not seated until 20 mins later.
I saw a feature about the Thanksgiving special on tv and decided to check it out. Food was really good except the side dishes were warm but not hot. Service was outstanding which includes hostess servers busboys etc. Value was great!. I'll be back. Restrooms were nice and clean but down stairs. Dont wait till last minute!
We were very thankful to eat at Bub City on Thanksgiving! There was great food and plenty of it! In addition to the usual, fabulous BBQ meats and side dishes, the roasted and fried turkey was delicious. The server was very pleasant and fun, adding to the experiences.
My wife and out-of-town guest were very pleased we chose Bub City for our holiday feast. We'll be back!
Our first visit was for their Thanksgiving Day feast. It was a little crowded and noisy, but the staff was very attentive and upbeat and the restaurant was brightly decorated for the holiday season. We enjoyed the turkey, bbq, pie and unlimited sides.
Great way for us to spend Thanksgiving. No clean up and our server was awesome. Well done.
Smoke turkey was outstanding! Great vibe. It was our second Thanksgiving here. Since last year they improved a lot the buffet menu.
The food was good and the band was great!!
Food was dry and the service sucked
Music at 1:00 was way too loud! Live band and I felt like it was 11:00pm music volume. We couldn’t even talk when leaning into the middle of the table. Terrible volume! Probably won’t return to this location because of this.
Great food, fantastic environment! I would warn people that the live music on Sundays does get above a conversation level.
Very loud and energetic on a Saturday evening.... the band was awesome...great lead guitar!!
Great food, service, and atmosphere! Good for all occasions!
Food was fantastic!! Waitress was amazing, totally took care of me. Explained drink specials and items on my plate. Really helpful. Made me feel at home! $5 old fashioned on Friday. Yum.
great food, great atmosphere, loved the drinks too. will def be back again!
Wednesday fried chicken night was amazing! The wings, fried chicken, and tenders were all delicious, and a solid value
I’ve always loved Bub city, and have been there several times. The service is always great but this past time our server was not great. He didn’t check on us much and took a long time to bring us our check.
The service was wonderful, love the music and bloody mary bar
We went for Saturday brunch and really enjoyed it. Tons of food/large portions so go hungry!
Staff was VERY accommodating in finding us a more comfortable table on a busy Friday night. (I'm a big guy. Booths don't work!) Wait-crew were friendly and attentive. Everyone in our group seemed happy with their meal selections. Only issue was volume. Happy crowd plus accompanying background music made table conversation difficult for our party of six. Maybe a good thing! Be back soon. I mean... "BE BACK SOON!!!"
Food was great; service was outstanding. Music is too loud to have a conversation; it would be OK if it was a bar but this is more of a restaurant than a place to go for a drink.
Love the Bloody Mary bar. The menu is reasonably priced and the portions are larger than you would expect.
