Ruby's BBQ on 29th Street Set To Close After 29 Years

 

After almost 30 years of serving up some of Austin's finest Southern eats, Ruby's BBQ on 29th Street will be closing its doors by the end of February, Austin Chronicle reports. Opened by Pat Mares and her late husband Luke Zimmerman in 1988, Ruby's BBQ has been a long time staple for students, locals, and a necessary stop on every foodie visitor's list. Many of Ruby's fans are taking to social media today to mourn the news of yet another departing Austin institution - see below for some of the kind words and memories being shared.

No official closing date has been set yet, so get there ASAP to stock up on that famous sauce!
