Rubbies is located in South Louisville and boasts a variety of selections and many signature dishes, from our Hickory Smoked BBQ Pork and Beef Brisket, Baby Back Ribs, Kentucky Hot Brown, The Double Decker Rubbie Burger, Our Famous Smoked Wings, Sizzling Steaks, & many other popular menu items. Everyone seems to find a favorite on our menu. Quality food and the comfortable atmosphere of a genuinely unique neighborhood grill and bar make Rubbies a favorite of locals, travelers while in town, and anyone else who has discovered this hidden treasure. Here's a description of a few of our popular items: Rubbies Famous Hickory Smoked Wings: Our Nearly World Famous Smoked Wings Are First Rubbed Down With Our Special Wing Rub Created By The Owner, Linda. We Then Slow Smoke Them In Our Smoker In The Back With Hickory Wood For Nearly 4 Hours! 8 Jumbo Wingettes to an order. One Of Our Favorites! Rubbie Famous "Motor Oil" Wings: Whole wings, deep fried & seasoned with our famous "Rubbies Motor Oil Sauce". The sauce is a secret, and is unlike any other wings you'll get anywhere. You can order them seasoned 'Mild', 'Hot', or '911' (not for the weak). Some say they're the best in Louisville, others say they're the best you'll get anywhere Sizzling Steaks: Order the Hand-cut Black Angus Rib eye, or the popular Rubbies Bourbon Glazed Steak. All steaks are topped with sauteed mushrooms and brought to you still cooking on a sizzling cast iron skillet Hickory Smoked Beef Brisket: Whole Briskets Are Rubbed with our Special Rub, then Slow Smoked With Hickory to have a Nice Smoky Bark, then Hand Cut and Served as a Sandwich... Tender & Delicious! Many credit us as having the best brisket around!

This place has the best wings you ever ate, they are fried and served with a dipping fluid the call motor oil. The BBQ was great as well. A friend my wife and I were eating with had the ribs and boasted how tender they were.

Previous reviews were spot on. Good food. We were here for lunch on a Sunday. I had the fish sandwich and hubby had the club. Everything was freshly prepared and very large portions.

There are 2 sides of the restaurant - the bar and the restaurant. The restaurant has booths and tables along with a pool table. Food is simple, delicious and priced fair. The wait staff was helpful. This is not a fancy place - but worth the trip for BBQ.

Don't expect to find this BBQ in a fancy place or near to a hip spot, this is local stuff for local people. This means simple food, good quality and affordable price. The furniture and the overall appearance are really basic but don't worry you will be rewarded by decent food and good beer. Staff is friendly and helpful. The... More

We often eat lunch at Rubbie's because the food is good and it's very cheap. Some of my favorites are the wings, the burgers, and the fries.

We stopped here on a Friday afternoon after getting off a plane from Detroit. The lunchtime crowd was lively. My husband had the brisket and said it was delicious. I decided to try something new and ordered the Kentucky Hot Brown, their specialty. I did not like this entrée at all. That said, it does not mean the food is... More

I reviewed this place quite a while ago and I really didn't like it, I thought it was dirty, the service was poor and the for was so so. This time I went with a friend that talked me in to going back, he said it had changed. Boy did it, while the atmosphere is dated the coast beef dinner... More

I really don't understand all of the good reviews from Rubbies. I ate there once years ago and remember not being happy with the BBQ pork sandwhich. This was a place my husband always wanted to try and so I regretfully ate there again. The special for the day was chicken fried steak so I had that with mashed potatoes... More
