Bubba’s 33 Sports Bar Taking Over Former Furr’s Spot on El Paso’s East Side
A sports bar chain will be moving into the former Furr’s location in the Las Palmas Marketplace.
State and city documents show a project has been registered for a Bubba’s 33 at 11925 Gateway West, which is the building Furr’s Family Buffet used to occupy.
What Is Bubba's 33?
Bubba’s 33 is a small chain of sports bars owned by the guy who also owns Texas Roadhouse.
According to its website, its vibe is family-friendly atmosphere meets garage bar “encompassing all [of the owner’s] favorite things: America, food, family, sports and beer.”
From a look at its social media and online menu, the Bubba’s 33 concept seems to be TV-lined walls, a lot of neon, and big portions.
The Bubba's Menu
Menu items include the usual sports bar fare of burgers, pizza, and wings as well as “tuck-your-napkin-in-your-shirt goodness” dinner meals such as lasagna, ribeye, and southern fried chicken breast covered in country gravy. There’s an decent selection of draft beer, cocktails, and wine, and a 12 & Under kids’ menu.
The website also touts that everything is made in house from scratch daily “right down to the sauces on our wings and dressings on our salads.”
Yes, they have salads, but don’t let that fool you. The menu doesn’t look like it’s for those watching their weight. And that’s how we like it around here, am I right?
When Is Bubba's 33 Coming?
Online documents show conversion of the existing building will begin in mid-June and you can expect to be stuffing your face there while watching sports around December of this year.
Bubba's in Cruces
A Bubba’s 33 is also opening in Las Cruces.
The LC Bubba’s is currently under construction next to Pecan Grill and Brewery at 510 S. Telshor Boulevard. It will be available for El Pasoans to test drive sometime this August.
