They say the couple that plays together stays together, but that's really only true if the couple working together keeps porking together. Doing pork work together seven days a week, the pair behind Rub BBQ.
From a 'que loving couple who got their start doing festivals and catering, Rub's a snug 30-plus-seat BYOB 'que shack with green vinyl booths and vintage ad signs dotting barn board walls they snagged from the burbs, since Corey Feldman had already taken all the residual checks. As the name suggests, they're all about their secret 14-spice rub, which gets massaged into proteins including pulled pork (avail on a sammie or a slider), pulled chicken, brisket, and St. Louis spares, all smoked over hickory and kickable with any of three sauces: honey, citrus-chipotle, and the house Smokey, who prevents fires and is super disciplined about going outside to poo. For side action they're rocking the likes of loaded mac w/ a blend of five artisanal cheeses, cornbread filled with a moist custard center, and house-seasoned-ground-sausage-abetted "Meaty Beans", which the sausage swears are what's making him look small.
They're also cranking out desserts like the Bar-B-Cookie (a massive chocolate chip covered in ice cream), crusty cobbler (peach & apples), and a chocolate Texas sheet cake they describe as "Finger Lick'n", which thankfully has nothing to do with their porking.
