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

Wednesday is the meatloaf special day! Almost as good as Moms! Good price too. This place is a hidden gem in the Louisville area.

It's been a long time since I'd eaten at Rubbies until this week. We had a quick business lunch and it was very good. I had an old fashioned double decker cheeseburger and fries.The burger reminded me of the kind you got as a kid and the fries were steak fries. Everything was good and hot. My partners had fried...

We went here with friends who were locals. So we were introduced to the owner and everyone. The food was good, the prices average. As another review says - it wasn't the cleanest place I have ever been. It seemed more messy and old than dirty tho. It was comfortable, the people were nice. They were making stuff for derby...

We have been eating at Rubbies since they opened in the late 80's. Everything at Rubbies is great. They have Legendary Wings and Chicken Tenders. The pulled pork, the burgers, the chicken sandwiches, the steaks, the COLD BEER!! Like I said, everything is good. EAT WHERE THE LOCALS EAT! Go to Rubbies.

Walking in the door has the feel of walking into a biker bar. But the food is pretty good and the prices are very wallet friendly. My favorite is actually when they have the buffet.
