This location has been in business for over 17 years and its closing leaves the Norbeck Road location as MoCo’s last remaining Urban Bar-B-Que.

    Not sure if UBQ changed ownerships recently, but I had been going to all of their locations for years, and in the last 6 months or so, the food has been different, and not as good. A lot greasier then it used to be and less meat on the ribs. I still go, but not nearly as often now.

    Is the one on New Hampshire still open?

      No, it closed in early Feb.

    Note that the one in Sandy Spring changed name (and presumably ownership) but when I was last there, had the same menu.
