Truly world famous BBQ is served daily at Rub BBQ at the Rio. The original New York location is known as some of the best BBQ in the country. Executive chef Paul Kirk is known as the “Kansas City Baron of BBQ.” True fans will want to order the Taste of the Baron, which is Rub’s most popular dish. Served on a hug plate, the Taste of the Baron comes with beef, pork, ham, pastrami, turkey, chicken, sausage, and a quarter rack of ribs.
RUB stands for Righteous Urban Barbeque. While many people outside of New York truly understand the meaning of the title; after one bite you will be a loyal RUB fan. A cool industrial look gives the restaurant a nice space to serve up the hometown favorite. High ceilings allow plenty of space for the fresh aromas to fill the air. Rub also specializes in home cooked sides like baked beans and mac n cheese. St.Louis Ribs are also a favorite at Rub. Entrees at Rub are cooked fresh daily but they can take up to 8 hours in the smoke, so once they run out of your favorite you are out of luck. So come hungry because Rub serves big portions at the right prices.
