“Very thankful Capers could serve us at 8:05 on a Saturday”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

After being turned away at Capers at 8:05 we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of BBQ at Rubs. My husband ordered the Chad's choice platter, the chicken wings were a rare combination crispy and juicy and the beef ribs were hearty and delicious. I had the beef brisket and the flavour and texture were incredible. The l sides were generous and the the sevice was pleasant and prompt. Definitely a must for dinner in Campbellford!

“It used to be better...”
Reviewed 15 February 2013 via mobile

This was a place we used to eat at all the time... Food was great with lots of local ingredients... It's changed a lot in the last few years and unfortunately not for the better. Too bad.

Good food, and lots of it! Loved the mashed potatoes and pulled pork sandwich... Wait time was minimal and desserts looked good.
