    ...visit this actual wood-burning BBQ joint located in Chelsea, which is known for serving dry rubbed authentic Smokey BBQ. A classic BBQ Ham Sandwich and some Onion Strings tasted well... Read more

    people say get the burnt ends. I, however, get there too late and they are all out.

    I second the Monday night burger tip and will add that they do TWO Monday night burgers--the house burger AND an homage to a regional specialty burger that changes each Monday

    Get to Rub on a Monday between 6 & 9pm and grab the Rub Burger or their daily special burger. Always unique and tasty!

    Best BBQ in the City.

    Skip the pulled pork & brisket--both dry & have no smoked flavor at all. The pastrami has good flavor but is tough and chewy--Katz's or Carnegie do way better. The Ribs & Burnt Ends r where its at!

    This is the BBQ spot to be seen. Try everything on the menu, you will not be disappointed. Make sure to top your meal off with an order of Fried Oreos!

  • Sandro P.

    Burnt ends or BBQ bacon chunks are a win here

    Sandro Pugliese · July 20, 2010

    Also the best duck in the city, with a blueberry glaze and smoked, it is the most succulent I ever had.

    They have hush puppies. What else does one need?

  • Mike H.

    The chili cheese fries are a must, as well as the combo sandwich with brisket and rib meat. You'll be leaving with a stomach ache for sure.

    A must have with whatever you order is a Shiner Bock. It'll make you want to go to Texas and take the tour.

    Ask what their "special burger" is if you find yourself here on a Monday night. (off-menu burger that changes weekly; some pretty inspired creations!)

    Matt Bress · September 10, 2012
  • Terrence C.

    Can't ever come here and not order the pulled pork and onion strings

    Bad service. Don't order the bacon steak appetizer; it's just one thick sliced piece of bacon for $7.

    Short End of ribs, Burnt Ends, Beans, Vinegar Cole Slaw, and Fried Oreos are just a few highlights of R.U.B., my favorite barbecue joint in NYC.

    The Fried Oreo's were divine. Really wanted to try the Fried Green Tomatoes, but they ran out.
