Our Story

Bubba’s is truly a local, family operation currently owned by Denise and Brian Wiegand. Denise (Sanders) grew up in Cody and is an alum of Cody High School and the University of Wyoming. Brian, originally from Pittsburgh, PA (GO STEELERS!) is a U.S. Navy veteran. The two have been married for over 18 years and have two beautiful children whom you can often find working in the restaurant, helping out. The family has lived in Cody since 2007 and purchased the business in 2011 with the desire to make a positive contribution to the local community as business owners.

We have been asked if there really is someone named Bubba. Yes! Over 25 years ago, Bubba (Jim Shivler) decided to open a bar-b-que restaurant in Jackson, Wyoming. He developed recipes to create the succulent, slow-smoked meats that we are serving today. Wyoming folks may remember that Bubba was one of Wyoming’s state legislators.

Our Food

Our bar-b-que selections are slow-smoked in a hickory-fired smoker. One taste of our delicious beef brisket, and you’ll understand why we go to the effort to patiently smoke it for 12-14 hours. Our ribs are slow-smoked to perfection, then grilled on our charbroiler and topped with our bar-b-que sauce. If you’re looking for a delicious hickory-smoked sausage, Bubba’s is the only place in Cody that serves this mouth-watering treat. The pork-lovers out there will enjoy our mouth-watering pulled pork, steeped for over 10 hours in hickory smoke… For those of you who are looking for an alternative to red meat, our chicken is our best-kept secret! It is so tender and juicy it melts in your mouth. Our sliced turkey breast has a deep, rich flavor – great in a sandwich or on its own.

If you’re not in the mood for bar-b-que, we can serve you a delicious burger (ask for a Bubba burger with rib rub seasoning!) or a variety of sandwiches. Our salad bar is a favorite with the locals and the only one like it in town. Our homemade salads and fresh vegetables are a healthy way to satisfy your hunger.
