    Waited 25 minutes for WATER and to even see the waiter. BBQ was good, but Mac & Cheese was less than desirable.

    Service is slooooooooow. Like really slow.

    Get a tall beer, you're going to be here a while. Seriously, 2 hrs for 2 people to get 1 beer each and split an entree on a Monday night is absurd.

    I'd go with the pulled pork over the burnt ends. Overall Service was good. Our waiter was pretty terrible tho.

    Just so everyone knows, the bad reviews are from The Packard Pub days, RUB seems to be ok so far.

    The servers are sexy especially Anne

    Happy hour menu is confusing. You have to order two drinks at full price to even qualify for the deals. Not a good way to do happy hour.

    Service was efficient and fast, not sure what the other tips are talking about. Got the Bob Seger sandwich (pulled pork with Memphis sauce) and it was delicious. I would go back when next in town.

    Not only horrible service, terribly managed as well. Received 2 free 25oz beers because of the 30 minute wait to order and when the food came it was not as ordered.

    Horrible service. Need to staff better. Waited 30 minutes to order food.

    Get the brisket. You won't regret it. If you need to add sauce (it doesn't need it), use the Texas sauce.

    Memphis BBQ sauce is my favorite!
