OK, just OK

The staff was nice and the atmosphere basic and clean. However, people that come to a place like the Rub are coming for one thing - great BBQ. I ordered the a half rack which was plucked from a large pile of racks piled on a sheet tray. The side of slaw was about the size of 3 shots you... read more

We go here about once a week. I always enjoy the 2 meat and 1 side plate. The sides are small except if you get fries. Normally a small side is plenty with the 2 mea plate. I get burnt ends and turkey.

I went to The Rub Bar-B-Que today for dinner and ordered one of the platters. I would agree with many that the food was not hot, and sits in a smoker for who knows how long, but the ribs and burnt ends were tasty. The restaurant was clean, there were not many people around dinner time. I got three ribs... More

They normally always have good BBQ. I especially like the burnt ends and turkey. All of the sauces are good. The beans are excellent but the portion is very small. The fries are a good portion but the other sides are really small. I normally get the 2 meat and one side deal. If there are 2 of you only... More

Delicious BBQ. I had the pulled chicken and you could taste the delicious flavor of smoked meet. They also have fresh cut french fries that I would highly recommend getting. They also offer BBQ classes if you want to learn check it out! Food was great and was served in a very timely manner! Must eat for BBQ lovers!

We enjoyed a fun & tasty evening grilling class with the owner & professional chef, Dan. The size of the class was kept to a dozen, which allowed all to follow along easily & then enjoy an excellent meal together. The atmosphere was casual & friendly. We plan to enroll in another class soon & will definitely return for lunch... More

We arrived at the restaurant about 5PM, and no one else was there the whole time we were there. Two people came in and picked up take out. I ordered the 1/2 slap of ribs and fries. I ask the guy if the fries would be freshly cooked, because I only like hot fries. He said yes. He unwrapped the... More

We love the Rub. We know it is out of the way in a boring strip mall. We know the dining room is tables on a concrete floor. But the food is really good and the prices are 25 to 50% less than what we pay at the "big name" places around town. We believe this is the best value... More

Picked up BBQ for tailgating. Not another customer in the place but me - but the food smelled delicious. Lots to chose from - some non-traditional BBQ options too. Really like supporting local businesses. The service was great. Food was really good. Not sure why it's not more busy!

First time customer. I had the pulled pork sandwich and fries. Food was delicious and service excellent. Appreciated that they honored Veterans with a free sandwich on Veterans Day. Would have rated a 5 but I'm not a huge fan of concrete flooring.
