Bubba’s Cooks Country is arguably one of Dallas's favorite destinations for Southern comfort food. This casual restaurant opened in 1981 when owners Bubba and Mary Beth Vinyard converted an old Texaco gas station into the Art Deco-style diner that it is today. The neon sign outside lights the way to Bubba’s, and the inside features red leather chairs, steel tables, and a classic black and white checkered floor.
Breakfast consists of crispy bacon, eggs, and thick-cut Texas toast, as well as endless refills on fresh coffee. For lunch and dinner, Bubba’s serves Southern fare favorites like chicken fried steak and all of the fixings. Owner Mary Beth’s most famous recipes are her fluffy yeast rolls and her sweet peach cobbler for dessert, and those recipes haven’t changed a lick in more than 30 years.
Bubba’s is open 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
