The story behind Bubba's Bar-B-Que

Our Inspiration

So, who's Bubba?

Bubba’s Bar-B-Que was inspired by Jim Shivler, or “Bubba,” who decided over 25 years ago to open up a bar-b-que restaurant in Jackson, Wyoming. Wyoming folks may remember that Bubba was also one of Wyoming’s state legislators. He developed recipes to create the succulent, slow-smoked meats that we serve today. 

Our mission is to provide our customers with great tasting, quality food that is prepared and served with excellence, in a fun and friendly atmosphere.  At Bubba’s, we exist to serve our customers, our fellow team members, and our community, and strive to positively affect every person we meet.

Our Story

Serving Cody's Best BBQ And Steaks Since 2011

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 30 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.

Our Food

Made with Patience & Care

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 or a variety of sandwiches. Be sure to ask for a Bubba Burger with Rib Rub Seasoning! 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.
