Ruby's Famous BBQ

A while back my brother and I had an outstanding dinner at Ruby's Famous BBQ Joint on its opening night. A month and a bunch of staff changes later, Ruby's food sucked. As the pit burns, couple of months later I received an email that began...

"My name is Greg Barry and I am the new Pitmaster at Ruby’s Famous BBQ in East Meadow."

Now that was great news. Big Barry had taken over Ruby's. I read that and immediately thought, "now it'll be good again." Much to my chagrin and face to face harassment from Big Barry himself, I haven't been back yet. But, I've heard from a couple of folks that Big Barry has turned the place around.

And now, here's a chance to try it out at discount prices....

Mr. Barry was let go of his duties at Ruby's today due to economy...

My guess is the quality will quickly decline once again or they will be out of business

That really sucks. I don't know anything about this particular situation, but my gut tells me that the Singh Hospitality Group doesn't really love BBQ and like many corporate restaurant groups, don't show it the proper respect.

My gut feeling is that they hired Barry, picked his brain and threw him out as soon as they thought they could do it themselves. Is that what happened to the original pitmaster John DeLoach?

Unfortunately too many restaurant groups feel this way.

Let's see how long the quality lasts without a real pitmaster.

Sorry I never got to serve you there. We really did turn the place around (based upon all the feedback) but I guess these things happen.

Onward and upward!!
