RUB BBQ, the month-old East Meadow offshoot of the Manhattan barbecue restaurant, is now serving lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The regular menu is always available, but on weekdays, RUB has a special lunch menu featuring a chicken Caesar salad (Et tu, RUB?) and seven sandwiches (pulled pork, chopped brisket, pulled chicken, smoked turkey, grilled chicken, fried catfish and “pulled portobello”) served with fries. Each of the eight items cost $8.95 and that includes a fountain soda.
RUB BBQ is at 2367 Hempstead Tpke., East Meadow, 516-731-4227.
