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 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.

Food was fantastic but service was poor and very slow. He was not very attentive to our needs, we needed to repeat many times our requests to get what we asked.

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.

Nous sommes habitués au Restaurant Rub’s Laval depuis environ 1 an. Nous y allons régulièrement en couple ou en famille. Nous avons toujours eu un service rapide, efficace, hors pair.!!

Cette fin de semaine fût notre première expérience en groupe (12 personnes). Nous avons eu 1 seule tournée d’eau et c’est au début avant que tout les invités soient arrivés.. les enfants ont attendue leur jus alors que les adultes ont eu leur boissons ET leur entrées...

Sinon côté nourriture et ambiance encore une fois nous avons été satisfait. Mais côté service pour un groupe, comparer à d’autre restaurant où nous avons été en groupe l'expérience est quelque peu ordinaire. Le serveur attitré aurait peut être dû avoir qu’un seul groupe? Alors que la ils en avait plusieurs..

Je continuerai de conseiller Rub’s pour un souper de couple mais pas pour un souper de groupe...

I am a fan of Rubs and would recommend it. I am a repeat customer and really enjoy the food and the choices on the menu. Therefore, I really hesitate to write this review. The other day we were a party of 12 for lunch. We were relaxed and not rushed. All of us had a full and delicious plate except one of my guests. She ordered the fajita and it was simply awful. The plate was practically empty and the food looked ready for the compost bin. The chicken was so dry, she thought they were potatoes. The tortillas were burnt and the meal was cold. She didn't send it back so as not to embarrass us.
Then there was something inexcusable in that the floor underneath our tables was so sticky, some of our shoes came off. This was the entire length of the table and on the way out as well. This was really an appetite killer because I thought of the uncleanliness.
Maybe these were isolated incidences and would not stop me from returning.
Thank you for your consideration.

Our waiter was phenomenal and after a bad experience the last time I came to the restaurant, he insured I had one of the best cuts of meat.
I will definitely be returning thanks to his efforts.

Severe issues with the cutlery.
We had to replace clean, wrapped cutlery several times as they were all spotty, film residue and mine had actual food and oily residue on them.
These items were handled by staff as they were wrapped so it’s very disappointing to evidently see that no one noticed. Makes you wonder what else is not noticed in the kitchen. Not too reassuring....

Excellente nourriture, choix de plusieurs sortes de côtes levées, de porc ou de boeud, petites ou longues.
Le menu est quand même destiné à ajouter facilement des extras (coûts) par exemple, les assiettes choisies ne venaient pas avec les fèves au lard qui sont délicieuses, mais pour "faire un échange", (i.e.: ajouter un très petit casseau de fèves au lard et perdre un des accompagnements), il faut débourder un 3.00 additionnel plus taxes. À ce prix, on devrait simplement pouvoir ajouter le petit casseau de fèves au lards, ce n'est pas nécessaire de laisser aller un accompagnement. Je crois que l'administration devrait reviser le menu pour éviter de tels irritants pour la clientèle... question de marketing et de satisfactiond e la clientèle. À 19:00 heures, le restaurant était encore pratiquement vide. Beaucoup de commandes pour emporter cependant, sans doute la meilleure façon de profiter des menus succulents à coûts raisonable...

Food is really good but the service was not good . I reserved for 7 people and gave us a table for 6 with chair at the end of the table. Theirs was a table for 8 in the back of us and they said that it was reserved. For the time we were their the table had no one. My serve boy forgot us a lot. I had to go get him to ask to paid. It's too bad that I didn't get the service that I wanted but your food is great. I will try the new Rubs that is opening in Laval Ouest close to my house.

Great experience. Staff friendly, helpfully, The only little thing was ,we got seated in a corner ( which was ok, but the table had no light above it , so it was a little dark to read the menu. But would definitely go back again
