There’s the Rub at Rio’s new BBQ

Jul 30, 2007 11:22 PM

New York City’s highly acclaimed RUB BBQ will add some extra heat to Las Vegas early this fall with its new location inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. This will be the restaurant’s second and only venue outside of the New York original. The 9,000-square-foot RUB BBQ at the Rio will feature championship level barbecue created by Paul Kirk, aka The Kansas City Baron of Barbecue and The Ambassador of Barbecue. The original RUB BBQ in New York opened to much praise in 2005.

The menu at RUB BBQ will satisfy any level of a barbecue connoisseur’s taste buds, with standard dishes such as Barbequed Ribs prepared St. Louis-style, Barbequed

Sausage and Pastrami prepared the old-fashioned way, slow-cooked over wood in pits for 14 hours. Specialty menu items include Burnt Ends, smoked twice until crispy and lightly sauced; Szechwan Smoked Duck; and a The Taste of the Baron that includes a tasting of beef, pork, ham, pastrami, turkey, chicken, and sausage, topped off with a quarter rack of ribs. RUB BBQ will be located on the second level of the Masquerade Village inside the Rio and will serve lunch and dinner seven days a week. An exact opening date for RUB BBQ is expected soon.
