Bubba Q

#street food

Edinburgh’s Royal Mile might not be the first place you'd think to look for standout American BBQ, but that’s where you’ll find Bubba Q. Appealingly, this wee place has a strong sense of its own identity and embraces every aspect of the big-portioned, flavour-packed food culture it represents. Starters are simple and effective: nachos, chicken tenders and tater tots are the only options. And that’s just fine – when the aroma of the long. slow, cook grabs your attention you’ll be eager to get to the BBQ mains. Traditionalists should try the six-hour slow-cooked brisket, which falls apart as soon as you attempt to tackle it, while the more adventurous will revel in the dirty doughnut, a burger masquerading as a dessert. Come hungry – portions are large – or share. If you do manage pud, desserts keep to the American theme with waffles and New York cheesecake. There is a decent selection of American craft beers, though wine lovers choose between simply red, white and rosé – try a milkshake instead, you’ll be in for a treat.
