I did some sleuthing on the Bubbalou's thing - for a couple of reasons. First, I have never had a bad meal at Bubbalou's - and I would like to think that I know a little something about decent BBQ meals. More importantly, I have never found anything offered at their place to be particularly on the expensive side.
I actually found something interesting. The original link posted in this thread from Greymo
) lists two locations on their web site (and a listing for "other"). The two locations are Altamonte Springs (also sometimes referred elsewhere as the "Lee Road location" and Kirkman/Conroy). I Googled Bubbalou's and found that there is a second web site (http://www.bubbalous.com/) that lists the two other locations (near UCF and Apopka) and lists the "other" locations as Altamonte and Kirkman.
Hmmm....it would appear that there is some sort of franchising agreement - and perhaps some of the stores are not up to par. I have only eaten at the Lee Road and the Kirkman Road locations. Clicking on the menus from both sites shows that the second site seems to have higher pricing. If those are the franchised locations, it would make sense that they have some higher pricing - in that they need to pay the franchising fees, whereas the original owner's locations can pass that savings on to customers.
Perhaps, armed with this knowledge, I will only pass along recommendations for the Lee Road and Kirkman Road locations of Bubbalou's in the future.
