American
Southern style American Barbecue is an institution in itself. Contrary to quickly grilled meats at high temperatures on an open flame, Southern Style Barbecue consists of a gentle slow process where the meat cooks with the smoke generated from the wood fire. RUBS’ unique recipes have been crafted using Quebec grown sweet Maple wood for a taste like none other.

My family and I love going to Rubs. It pleases even the pickiest eaters (in this case my Grandma). Our waitress was a new employee working there for only 1 week and she was great. Honestly everything about that night was good and fun! Thanks

Le restaurant n'était vraiment pas plein et pourtant notre serveur semblait débordé. Il oubliait souvent ce qu'on lui demandait devant ainsi attendre qu'il apparaisse, puis lui répéter plusieurs fois. Alors qu'on finissait les entrées, les plats principaux n'avaient pas encore été commandés, occasionnant une longue attente entre les deux services. Les plats étaient bons, sans être exceptionnels. La sangria goûtait plus le jus que le vin. Bref, nous étions curieux de l'essayer, mais nous n'y retournerons probablement pas.

Its good to finally have a brisket option in the Montreal area! It wasnt the same thing as the Brisket I used to eat in Dallas but it is close. I will definitely be back!

Make sure you wear a sweater. You might be sitting under the air system like I was and be cold the whole dining experience. Food was dry. I had a brisket sandwich and the meat was really dry. I was not impressed. The service was good.

My favorite restaurant in Montreal and Laval. The food and the service are GREAT.
Ownership is always present in Steve and if something is wrong (very infrequently)
he will fix it on the spot. Herman

service trop expéditif, nous n'avions pas terminé notre entré que déjà il apportait le plat principal, ils manquaient des condiments, aussitôt terminé il nous donnent la facture et reste planter devant nous avec la machine, et de plus le restaurant était quasiment vide.
Service complètement HORRIBLE et EXPÉDITIF et pas donner.

The food was fantastic! We all enjoyed the food tremendously and we had so much that lunch leftovers the next day were great.
The only reason I did not give a 5 star review was the service. Our appetizer came quickly, then we waited a long time for our food. When it came, our 2 person meal was put down in front of us without plates. The waiter (not our waiter) said he would bring them in a minute. 30 minutes later and we were still waiting for plates. I was able to finally flag down our waitress and she brought them to us right away. We all enjoyed our food and then asked to package up the rest. She brought out the big bag of containers, we were happy. Then we didn't see her again for over half an hour.... Meanwhile we were sitting there waiting to order dessert. She came, my husband ordered dessert, I ordered a coffee. Dessert came in 10 minutes, my coffee was another 20 mins after that. Then we still had to flag down another waiter to get our bill after waiting 45 mins since my coffee arrived.
I understand when a restaurant is busy that service may be a bit slower but as we were sitting in the back corner, it was almost like we were totally forgotten most of the time.
On the upside of sitting in the back corner in a busy restaurant was the fact that we could actually carry on a conversation among the 4 of us.

I booked a reservation at Open Table for 6:45 and sure enough even though there was a long line up I walked to the front, showed my reservation and bang, we were in. We had a banquet that seated 4 persons in the bar. The server was great as was the food. This restaurant for me is great value with consistently great southern BBQ.

My family and I were very excited to try out this resto. We finally did on a Saturday night. Sadly, even with reservations, we still had to wait a long time to be seated as the resto was very busy. The service was incredibly slow. We asked 3 servers for some utensils...no one ever came. We had to get up ourselves to get them. My hamburger was basically still alive. I didn't send it back as it would have taken another 45 minutes to get served. On a positive note, the atmosphere was fun. I will not be returning.

Great place but they really have to amp up their service. Takes way too long to get seated and be greeted by a waiter. Not the first time this has happened.

I found each and everyone of our dishes dry. We all ordered different rib dishes, all were very dry. The food came before our cocktails and our wine. We ordered the drinks before we ordered our meals. It seemed as though the food was just sitting under a heated lamp waiting to be served. No great gastronomical meal here. Very loud atmosphere. Waiters all seemed confused.

First time to RUBS. I will say that this review is downgraded because of my food choice. The deep fried baby back ribs were horrible.... I would NOT RECOMMEND this dish. Not sure what I was eating.
The St.Louis ribs ordered by my business associate looked very good.
I guess I will try RUBS again if I am in the neighborhood...but I am not making it my priority.

La nourriture est excellente (si on recherche ce genre de mets). Par contre, la serveuse que nous avons nous a offert un service vraiment médiocre. Lors du paiement de la facture, il était impossible de choisir le montant du pourboire. Nous avons été réellement déçus de la qualité du service.
