In NYC, good barbeque is hard enough to find, but to find a true ‘que’ experience, until last night I thought did not exist. A friend took me to RUB; an acronym for Righteous Urban Barbeque; located in Chelsea. What gives this place a unique dining experience is how they choose to serve the food. You can order by the pound, and have it set in the table in front of you to share. All food is with out BBQ sauce, instead there are couple different sauces for you to top off the food with yourself. For our meal we ordered, fries, onion strings, cornbread, cole slaw (mayo), 1 lb of pulled pork, 1lb of sausage, and 1 rack of baby back ribs. This was a lot for 4 people, but the waiter said it would be enough. The pulled pork and cole slaw was the highlight of this meal. For NYC I think this is excellent BBQ food, but I have eaten better elsewhere in America. I did enjoy RUB and definitely see myself going back especially for the pulled pork and cole slaw.
