  • This is the best pizza in Montclair. My fav is the Max's Pizza.
  • No AC in the summer time
  • Get the Max's pizza and add a double order of Texas Smoked Sausage to it - tell em not to slump on that sausage!!!
  • Very friendly service with an authentic southern feel to the place. Pulled pork sandwich was excellent but next time I'd tell them go easy on BBQ sauce. Killer fries!
  • The mac and cheese is insane. I've only had take out but loved everything we've tried.
  • Love the pizza. Great place!
  • Dog friendly but closes at 9pm on a Saturday!?
  • Brisket burger, French fries, Mac and cheese, BBQ sauce!
  • Get the mac n cheese
  • You'd think that a place couldn't have great pizza and barbq but Ruthies has done it. Affordable prices and throw in some great blues music, you've got a must visit in the area.
  • Cheerful service, filling ribs, and a decent blues soundtrack make for a fun stop on too-lazy-to-cook nights.
  • Can't check in. I guess you know that. But I can still say that I wuz here!
  • great location. great tunes and some legit bbq but gotta say service was super unfriendly and pretty horrendous
  • It's pretty nuts that somehow the BBQ and pizza are BOTH excellent.
  • Pretty good pizza and great BBQ, this place has a great southern feeling to it and always have some good old southern tunes playing.
  • Not a place to sit and eat. The food is alright - pizza is overpriced.
  • Live Blues Fri and Sat night + great BBQ= The Happy
  • Warm walnut goat cheese salad is delightful. And Texas pizza has some serious kick and is very tasty!
  • Try the Hush Puppies - Awesome!!
  • Try the pulled pork platter - My go-to for BBQ in North Jersey!! This is a sandwich I crave regularly!!
