Ruthie's Bar-B-Q & Pizza

Ruthie's Bar-B-Q serves up slow-cooked barbecue and thin-crust pizza in a 1910 townhouse in Montclair. Dogs are welcome at twelve outdoor tables, and they even have a dog-friendly menu; throw Fido a Lulu Bone (a slow-roasted pork shoulder bone) while you load up on pork, brisket, or chicken platters, BBQ melts, wings, or thin crust pizza in this rootsy joint. Catch live blues musicians on Friday and Saturday nights from 7:00 to 9:00! You can't miss the classic Dry Rub Pork Ribs, heaped on a platter with fries and slaw, or the Texas Pizza with smoked mozzarella, Texas sausage, caramelized onion and jalapeno. Finish it all off with a Homemade Ice Cream Sandwich and call it a night. Ruthie's Bar-B-Q is open 10:30am to 9:00pm Monday through Friday, and 11:30am to 9:00pm on Saturdays. Visit Website

Or call (973) 509-1134 for more information.

    This was our soccer group's "go to" after playing Tuesday nights. Great pizza, BYOB, and atmosphere. Ruthie and Eric were the friendliest hosts, too.

    Fantastic BBQ and Pizza!

    Really great BBQ and pizza- great service and great outdoor live music on the weekends- so great to be able to bring a dog to a place like this. Thanks Ruthie's!
