Ruby’s BBQ cuts back on hours in lead up to permanent closure on February 17

[cmg_anvato video=4309571 autoplay=“true”]

If you call Ruby’s BBQ, you’ll be met with a recorded message alerting you to the fact that the restaurant is closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. The message states the restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday.


The restaurant that Pat Mares and her late husband, Luke Zimmerman, opened in 1988 will close permanently on February 17. It is unclear if the shortened hours will continue next week and the following week, but we’ve left a message with Ruby’s asking for clarification.
