I was expecting much when I walked into here but only to be disappointed with everything besides the time of food delivery. They serve the food on plates of paper which is normal for a bbq place but the food wasn’t that authentic. I ordered...the Smoked Ham sandwich thinking that it was going to be a hot sandwich but the meat was served cold and the swiss cheese was cold as well. The ham had huge ribbons of fat going through it like you are eating raw American style bacon and nobody wants to eat that. I sent it back besides its confusing to come into an American style barbeque place and be served cold meat, how does that make sense? They should atleast state that on the menu, I’m sure a lot of people get confused. Smoked meat isn’t served cold like that, and I’m an American, I know. I switched it for a pulled pork sandwich which was supposed ot have coleslaw on the bun but it didn’t because the chef forgot. The pork had chunks of hard meat in it, it wasn’t soft pulled pork like it should be, more like yesterday’s leftovers on a Friday night at 8:00 pm, but how? It’s been reheated over-and-over too many times and it’s dried out. The waitress walked by my table twice before I stopped her on her third try to take my money for the bill and she rebuffed saying it wasn’t for her. Honey, just take the money and give it to whomever then, always be prepared to serve every table if a customer needs something yeah? If you sit in one of the corners you will wait forever for the little things. The only thing that was fast was the kitchen waiter coming out with the pre-made, (not made-to-order) food. I won’t go here again, it’s over-priced for slop, it’s a tourist trap and I don’t recommend it. Big thumbs down.More

The restaurant is nicely decorated and the atmosphere is cozy. The staff was quick and friendly. The food came quickly and was absolutely delicious, ribs falling off the bone and chicken smokey, fried potatoes hot and salty, coleslaw average. Portions big and prices fair. All...in all, would definitely visit again.More

No comments! It's one of the worst restaurant we have ever been to! The service was very very slow, the chicken was not cooked properly and literally dripping blood. We kindly express our grief and eventually served us another chicken, which was better cooked. In...fact, it was the same chicken and the had just roasted again! Of course we didn't eat it because it was also uncooked and his taste was indifferent and miserable! Also, before we had finished our meal they picked up dishes and glasses from the tablet. The only positive was that they removed the chicken price from the bill. We were not happy at all, we do not recommend it and of course we will never go again!!! 👎🏼👎🏼More

Amazing food, my partner said the best meal I’ve ever had! Lovely for a treat meal. We got the Yankee sharing platter which comes with 4 sides! More than enough to fill a few people. We got the cheese snack as a starter which was...amazing! Lovely views of the comedy theatre couldn’t of asked for more!More

Cheap and easy food and drink, it was valentines so was quite busy but we still got served relatively quick and food was hot and well cooked. The wrong dish came out so they gave us it free and made the correct one for us....For 5 pints of beer a large portion of chicken wings and topped fries it was around £20 and we were both full! Will definitely be going back before we leaveMore

After spending the last few days in budapest, we decided to have our final evening meal at rub & roll. The restaurant is nicely decorated. I had the chicken burger and my friend had the chicken tacos which we really enjoyed. Staff here were really...friendly and were very helpful when we explained that my friend has a severe nut allergy, they quickly reassured us that no nuts were involved in the preparation of her meal. We also had 4 drinks, 3 of which were cocktails which were also very nice. Our bill came to about 12,000 Hungarian forint which is about £30 British pound. We were extremely impressed with the price of the whole meal including the cocktails as well, as in England I wouldn’t hesitate paying £30 for just 3 cocktails alone in some bars. Very good value for money here. If I am ever in Budapest again, I will be back to this restaurant!!!!!!More

We stopped in for dinner in early February. My husband had the brisket and I had the ribs. Having been to BBQ shacks in the US, this place was OK but not of the same quality. My ribs were meaty, and fell off the bone....Portions were decent. The place was let down by the service. There were at least 6 waiters in the place, yet the only 2 working were our waitress and the mamager. The rest were stood around chatting and flirting with each other. Our poor waitress was run ragged and as a result everything was very slow.More
