      yeah, he couldn't crash through the window of a g'dam Starbucks, could he? No, he's gotta wreck RUB.

        I had a hot link sandwich there 2 weeks ago. It was delicious.

        i remember going here regularly when they first opened...2005? 2006? i ate more bbq at that time and they were one of the first and one of the best.

        i have less and less of a hankering for bbq but found myself eating the brisket at hill country more than anything at rub. but their burnt ends and ribs were more than solid.

        very surprised to see them close.
