Critic's Review

The first time I went to scruby's was Memorial Day, 2010. I'd only been to Jenkins and JAX before, so my BBQ IQ was pretty low. I enjoyed the food, wondering why Jenkins was rated so high when this was arguably better.

Since that day, I've been to just about every BBQ from here to Delray, and I've sampled many good and bad ribs and sides. Today was more about having some BBQ on memorial day; there's no BBQing at the condo. Last time I went about 5pm and that was a big mistake. At 3:30 the place was about half full, and the takeout area was much more manageable.

The menu doesn't tell you what you get with the combo, and the counter person wasn't strong on communication. I asked how many sides I get, and she just mumbled something about beans and a sweet potato. After some back and forth it was established that I'd be getting a bunch of stuff.

It took about 10 minutes to put the order together. Scruby's is a pretty big place and you could certainly dine in here.

When I opened the box, there weren't as many ribs as I expected; well there were enough, but the babybacks were very small. The spare ribs were smallish also. But they give you a lot of other stuff; a sweet potato, garlic bread, beans and cole slaw. >

The babybacks weren't as good as before. They were dryish. The spare ribs were meatier than they looked and they were much better than I remembered. A perfect sweet potato, lousy cold slaw and baked beans that were good, but a stingy portion.

Prices are up $1 in 3 years; not too bad. But the ribs are smaller and so it the portion of cole slaw.

This is what I got last time.

This was OK for fast food BBQ; all in all a lot of food when you add up all of the extras. Not the best in town, but acceptable.
