Reviews for Real Urban Barbecue

This was by far my favorite brisket bbq place. Been going here for years. Brisket was fresh, moist and very lean. The sides were very freshly made and tasted great. Since they recently (early 2020) sold to Famous Dave's BBQ, the quality of all the food including the brisket is terrible. The brisket we picked up today was 50% fat also all the sides were dried out like they were cooked weeks ago. So sad to write a review like this on a restaurant I liked so much but Famous Dave' full review
RUB is completely overwhelmed and disorganized in the current environment. I sent them an online carryout order, arrived on time to pick it up, and waited there for an hour and ten minutes for my order! There's no need to describe in detail all the things they're doing wrong. Bottom line is if you have an hour of your life to waste that you'll never get back, then this is the place for you. I have been a loyal customer there since they opened, but forget about it until full review

We arrived at this spot for dinner. my friend recommended this spot. Well, it was a winning. The crew were very polite and we felt excellent. The food was just great. We had a great time and we will definitely return to this restaurant. Highly recommended.
