About us


When you combine the atmosphere of a local Michigan hangout and the excitement of watching your favorite sports team, while enjoying the tastes of an old school smokehouse, you have found R.U.B. BBQ. With over four decades in the food service industry, the R.U.B. BBQ family knows what it takes to provide you with the best dining experience around.
At R.U.B. BBQ, we are proud to show our Michigan heritage, and our eco-friendly ideas allow us to bring you that phenomenal taste while still contributing to a greener Michigan. We use local Michigan suppliers to bring you the best BBQ along with micro brews and liquors. You can taste the freshness and see the pride we take in preparing each meal. Our meats are smoked on the premises daily. Not only can you taste the natural smoke flavor, but you can visually see the smoke ring on the outer portions of our meats. We mix our own rubs and sauces from scratch using over 20 different herbs and spices. We have whatever you desire, from our signature appetizers, sandwiches, entrees and sides, to our massive selection of beer available in bottle or draft. Never miss a minute of action of you favorite local sports team on one of over 30 flat screens while enjoying one of our 40 beers on tap.

Tailgating packages are available which include all your pre-game musts, including our beer to go, which is available by the six-pack or a 64 oz. growler. So leave your grill at home and come on in, because at R.U.B. BBQ we have all your smokehouse needs covered.
