Best BBQ in KC! Better then Jack stacks by far. Much better for a quick lunch or a quick bite to eat. The manager here is very generous when dishing people up, and always has a smile on his face.

The food here is incredible for such an unassuming-seeming place. The barbecue is good, of course, but the other food is a step up as well. The cornbread has a sugar glaze on it, and the salads are dressed up with cranberries and glazed walnuts. I usually get the Hash Bowl (barbecue over fried potatoes). If getting the bowls, be...

I decided to go there and pick up dinner there instead of JOE'S BBQ which they said it was a 45 minutes wait so at this place I asked for BBQ chicken, their chicken is without bones and it looked like processed chicken meat sliced and then tossed in BBQ seasoning, then their burnt ends were like stewed and they...

I had mine with a side of onion straws. wasn't worth the $7.50 for the sandwich (and $3 for the... More

We were staying at the nearby Embassy Suites, and decided to eat at The Rub for dinner since it was just across the street. The set-up is really fast and convenient: you order at the counter, they scoop up your food right there, you get your own soft drink and find your own table. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich...

Had the 2 meat one side plate for lunch. The meat was turkey and burnt ends which were both very tasty. The side was there beans which I really like. Just wish they gave you a larger side. The cups are kind of small. The food is really great though.

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.

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... More

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
