As has been posted here before, Rubin's Red Hot on Ventura and Sepulveda will close forever at the end of April and will not reopen in another location. Max is retiring and tells me that the building will be torn down. There has been talk on this board about how good Rubin's Buffalo Wings are and, since chix is chix (or parts is parts) any secret must be in the sauce. Since Max is leaving the business, today at lunch he wrote out the recipe for the secret hot sauce. For any interested, I'm posting it on Home Cooking. Today I had the Ghetto Burger, a large, thick patty cooked medium-rare as requested with bacon, cheddar cheese, loads of grilled onions and slathered in a pretty good (but a little too sweet for my taste) BBQ sauce. It was gloriously messy. A little over $7, including a large mess of fries and a refillable drink. Only two weeks left and I'll be back several times.
