Bubba Foods is a United States producer of frozen burgers founded in 2000. Their primary product, Bubba Burger is produced using whole muscle USDA Choice chucks and has grown considerably in popularity in the recent years.
BUBBA burger was created by Walter “Bubba” Eaves during the 1990s. The burger is designed to be cooked from a frozen state and does not require defrosting. Eaves avoided fillers and trimmings and used primarily meat chucks. Distribution of Bubba burger began with grocery stores in the Southeast and expanded across the nation. The burgers are now commonly found in many retail stores across the US.
In 2011 Bubba Foods purchased four Times Grills in Jacksonville applying a fast-casual restaurant concept. The restaurant menu features all the varieties of Bubba Burgers. In 2012 the last of the four Bubba Burger Grill restaurants closed in Jacksonville. 
Bubba Foods initially marketed four types of burgers:
- Original BUBBA burger
- Sweet Onion BUBBA burger
- Reduced Fat BUBBA burger
- Angus Beef BUBBA burger
They have since expanded their product line to include:
- Bacon Cheddar BUBBA burger
- Turkey BUBBA burger
- Turkey with Monterey Jack Cheese BUBBA burger
- Turkey with Sweet Onion BUBBA burger
- Veggie BUBBA burger
