Bubba’s Cooks Country
For over thirty years, Dallasites have gone to the Bubba’s near SMU for comforting home cooking like fluffy biscuits, cream gravy, and crispy fried chicken, with all the classic sides (green beans, limas, mashed potatoes, black-eyed peas). Good news for folks in the burbs: the iconic art deco diner has been duplicated in Frisco, albeit with a slightly larger dining area and more parking. We went on a Sunday afternoon, and the line to order was long, everyone queuing up for the likes of crisp, crunchy chicken-fried steak covered in thick gravy, tangy okra and stewed tomatoes, and velvety baked squash. Also wildly popular are the breakfast options, like chicken and waffles and biscuits and gravy. The banana pudding is the best we’ve ever had, with dense banana cream and slices of the fresh fruit, topped with airy house-made meringue.
