R.U.B. Barbecue - Getting Better
I live near R.U.B. and have been going since it opened. I've often found it maddeningly inconsistent, even the items I'm a big fan of, such as the pastrami (ask for a tender piece) and the burnt ends. Lately, however, I've noticed a general step-up in quality. For instance, last night I was shocked at how good the BBQ baked beans were. When I last tried them when the restaurant first opened, I found them cloyingly sweet and completely unappetizing. Last night, however, they were so deeply savory and satisfying, and filled with cubes of glorious burnt ends, that I was inspired enough to call the restaurant with kudos. In any event, I encourage the many who were initially disappointed with the restaurant to give it another chance.
always been a fan, and eaten there two or three times. we ended up doing a delivery order for two of the taste of the baron orders and it was an insane amount of food. it arrived somewhat lukewarm, but all the flavor was there.
I still like the onion rings, I love the pastrami, the pulled pork, the baked beans, and the ribs are better than the other new bbq place on the west side, daisy may's.
