Definitely gonna hit Stubbs, if not to eat then to get some of his bbq rub. It didn't taste like much to me when I tried a pinch of it by itself, but when I used it on some ribs it was great. If I use Stubbs rub, I don't even sauce my ribs.

Give Ruby's a try. Its in the downtown area around 6th St I think. Its been 5 or 6 years since I was there but it musta been good for me to remember the name.
