City-dwelling fans of Babe’s who are less than enthusiastic about driving out to Roanoke or Carrollton for their fried chicken don't have to make that long drive just for a piece of chicken. Bubba’s Cooks Country in Snider Plaza has the same gloriously crispy, juicy fried bird, chicken-fried steak and a full lineup of down-home sides, from mashed potatoes and cream gravy to black-eyed peas and corn on the cob, plus fluffy yeast rolls and slightly sweet biscuits begging to be slathered with tiny foil-wrapped packets of Plugra. The interior is classic diner shtick from head to toe, replete with black-and-white checkered flooring, red vinyl booths and plenty of chrome accents. Diners-in may encounter a long line to order at the counter, but fret not – it moves quickly. There’s also a drive-thru for the truly lazy or those who can’t bear to change out of their pajamas; it also makes Bubba’s the perfect place to grab a quick, bargain-priced breakfast of biscuits and gravy or a fresh-baked cinnamon roll.
