About
Welcome to Rub & Roll Barbecue! If you’re hungry for authentic American flavors, this is the place for you. We want to show you the miracles you can make with meat and the flavor experiences that await you in turn. We’re not only talking about discovering a few courses, but a whole genre with long-standing traditions, experience and culture behind it. Our goal is to pass on to you the flavors we experienced in America as authentically as possible, therefore we smoke the meats with apple wood in a special BBQ oven called ‘smoker’ for long hours, often all night long, as we learned it in the Southern states. As this only allows us to prepare a predefined amount, we might even run out of it occasionally

Food was disappointing. I ordered chicken tacos and there was a large amount of chicken skin in there. After l crunched on abit of bone l stopped eating it. Kids weren't impressed with theirs either. Nachos weren't the nicest.

The burgers were so bad. The meat was very salty and hard, not fresh at all, and totally overcooked. The staff was very nice but it's just not worth it.

One of our better meals in Budapest (not that there was much good to compare it to) just happened to be an American style barbeque joint. Between our hotel by Nyugati train station and the river, this was on our way to see the sights...after arriving in town from a long train ride. Large portions that we could not even finish with good quality and flavor at a very good price - a novel idea compared to our other meals in town. We’d definitely come back here.More

Popped in for evening meal at short notice. Reasonably good choice of options on the menu. Service was fairly quick. Fries have paprika dressing on them. Food was tasty enough.

The up side: Location is good - Service is OK - Delivery of food relatively quick. The down side: They put bacon (undercooked bacon), Yellow Cheese (appears to be cheese-like substance - not real cheese) and tomatoes on the Pulled Pork Sandwich. Next; there was...only one option for sauce and it was an apple barbecue sauce! Terrible.More

Lovely venue but was let down by the bad service and substandard food. Ribs were mainly fat and grizzle and fajitas with no bread is just fried chicken.

A pleasant evening with well-tasting food! The amount is perfect, and the meat is tender! Beware that you need to reserve a table as it gets rather busy during the night!

If you like fatty meat, this is the place to go! We were disappointed that they did not have the prime rib or Rub and Roll sausages (would have been nice if they told us when handing us the menus), so we ordered the pork...ribs, beef brisket and chicken cheddar supreme. The pork and beef meat was very poor quality with too much fat, a little cold, but the flavour was nice. The only thing that saved the meal from a two star rating was the nice staff and the macaroni cheese side dish!More

Was is this place for a light bite before my tour later on, staff were extremely rude, we ordered and shortly after the staff were talking about us, I know this as my partner speaks Hungarian, I however don’t so I was none the wiser,...shortly after food came and it was fast, however the chips came uncooked and our nachos had a layer of oil at the bottom, we weren’t very well attended too and neither was surrounding tables, we watch a guy wait 25 minutes to get attention of a waiter for a bill (he hand his up and was shouting for someone). Overall worst place I’ve ate in Budapest in the past 4 daysMore

I went for the fillet steak - EU not angus (much cheaper) - very nice piece of steak. Good cocktails reasonable price. Gets more lively later on. Has a fun atmosphere.

Friendly and quick service. My husband had the short rib which was very tasty. I had a burger which was ok but a bit chewy. The coleslaw could be improved - more veg and less sauce as it was very sloppy!

The service was good but the food was cold dry and 10/10 mid couldn’t even finish my small portion of chicken fajitas didn’t even come with tortillas which are often the main part of the dish. I much would’ve preferred eating street kabobs. All I...can say about this place that is positive is the beer was sufficiently chilled, but not worth it what so ever!More

Really bad burgers. Beef pattys was from frost and not at all what they looked like on the display photos. Dry beefs with no taste. Coleslaw and fries was okay. Cannot recommend this at all.
