Visited Newark for a concert at the prudential center. This place wasn’t far and the food looked great. Location was nice, restaurant was very nice as well a ambience. Food was fast and tasted great. Would love to go again if I’m ever in the area. The price is up there with fancy restaurants. After tip, a dinner for 2 it was $200. Luckily the food was great.
Guess I'll have to get there much earlier next time, to taste the brisket. I had a 9:00pm sitting last night and they had run out.
Great smoked meats. Recommend the yucca pastry appetizer. Sort of like a hush puppy combined with an empanada. Really enjoyed the food. Service was fine, nothing outstanding or poor. Well off the beaten path, and the space was weird. Part sports bar, part club. Not really conducive to dining. Loud club music was playing courtesy of DJ, but no one even vaguely interested in dancing.
AMAZING gem! Everything from the food, the drinks, the atmosphere were spectacular! The waiter could have been nicer, real grouch!
Really enjoyed the experience and meal here. So close to the airport and plenty of free parking.
Very nice brisket and pulled pork and ribs. We really liked it.
Good place to hand out. Food was cooked as I wanted it and the ambiance was great for a first date. Bartender seemed new to the business and the pour was not great but otherwise ok
Our server was not personable at all ...we had to flag him down for everything we needed or wanted
The outside can be deceiving- inside fun and good food
My friends and I had one of the best experience ever!, my 66th bday, i look you up on Google, and whow what a good guess!, will definitely come back, and i also been sharing my great experiences,
Service was wonderful. The fresh made lemonade and cornbread to die for! The smoked Turkey and baked beans were amazing! The chicken was Bland and dry. The ribs were smoked to perfection but had no flavor. The house made sauces were not very likable. But again some very good strong points! We'll go back maybe
Love it. I keep getting the beef risotto. I need to try something else because everything I see looks so good! But I love that risotto.
Good food, nice vibe, sat outside
great food and good service. a bit loud if you want to have a business conversation
Food was great! Great place to stop and eat before a show or event.
Great sports bar environment.
Extensive menu and drinks listing.
Food is of great quality & portion size is HUGE!
Recommend highly if you’re in Newark area.
Underwhelming bar b que.
The food was great and there were some excellent creative dishes, but the location,ambience did not come close to the and great food. It was also to pricey for the ambience and location.
Took 15 minutes to get someone to wait on us and there was hardly anyone there when we arrived. Took another 20 minutes to get appetizer and then 25 more minutes to get entrees. Appetizer was good but entrees were cold when we received.
I picked the restaurant based on the description on Open Table. Was surprised at the location but my guest and I were up to try it.
Service was attentive and food was well prepared and enjoyable.
Not the quantity for the money. The quality of the meat was cold and the ribs were burnt. I love the guacamole. Also add a little more flavor to meats.
It is a very inviting place to watch the games, but the food is average for the price and service was poor.
city rub stated they do not participate in OpenTable
Worst experience I’ve ever had in a restaurant. The waiters have major attitude and don’t have any customer service skills. I would not be going there ever again.
We stopped in as it was close to the Newark airport before leaving back home. The food was over the top! Service was great and loved the video DJ that was there for lunch. Atmosphere was great and very clean!
We had a great meal and great drinks before an NJPAC event. Service was very friendly and attentive. We will definitely go again.
We needed a restaurant near the airport and this one was a very pleasant surprise!
Service was very bad. Food is OK. One in our party did not get his food until the rest of us were done. Drinks, forget about it. Do not recommend.
Great food great tv’s. Would recommend to friends. Great ribs
Great setup going on. Good food, good service, friendly environment. Great overall
