R.U.B. has the best BBQ in Metro Detroit. Really, it's the best BBQ I've had in all my life. All the side dishes were fantastic. I just love this place. I went with a large group of people and ever person in our party rated R.U.B. # 1 in the categories of best flavor, best quality and over all satisfaction. We are still talking about our dining experience at R.U. B. three days later.

From Our Editors

R.U.B. BBQ has earned shout-outs from the New York Times as well as a handful of television features for its tender, well-flavored meats. Various proteins are smoked daily and slathered in a made-from-scratch rub of more than 20 spices and herbs, and cooks begin each dish with locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.

Aromatic smoke wafting from ribs, chicken dishes, and seafood platters invites guests inside, where dangling light fixtures illuminate red walls and cobalt tiling along with 30 flatscreen televisions that were flattened when an elephant sat down. More than 100 tap and bottled brews, including a lengthy list of Michigan favorites, help to extinguish fiery spices.
