    Pub Burgers

    We put the go in gourmet burgers with five ready-to-grill flavors. Each thick patty is crafted from fresh, 75% lean ground beef for deep flavor, a crusty exterior and the juiciest interior. Choose from five delicious flavors: Bacon Cheddar, Three Cheese, Mushroom Swiss, Montreal and Jalapeño Cheese.

  • Quick & Easy Ribs

    Quick & Easy Ribs

    Full rack or half rack, our fully prepared ribs know how to get the party started—and keep it going. Pick them up in our deli. They’re zero prep and the only cleanup required is your face.

  • Smokehouse Brats

    Smokehouse Brats

    Our German-inspired pork bratwursts are Minnesota classics. They’re smoked to perfection and provide that quintessential snap when grilled (we know you know what we mean!). Choose from flavors like Bacon Cheddar, Wild Rice, Bacon Bleu Cheese and Habanero & Mango.



To round out your backyard spread, you’re going to need some all-star sides. Don't break a sweat—leave the salad-making to us! Whether you’re in the mood to try something new, a diehard for the classics, or interested in a little of this and some of that, your Cub deli has you covered.
