Rube's Shirt Design Challenge

Capture the vibe, the legacy, the roots, the fun of Rube's Steakhouse and your design could be featured on our new fall shirt! Will you focus on our hot grills? Our big meat? Our roots in rural Montour, Iowa, pop. 244? Rube's close relationship with family farmers? The possibilities are endless.
We can't wait to see your visual representation of Rube's Steakhouse. Make sure your designs are 100% original, unique and something everyone you know would want to wear! The deadline to enter is Sunday, October 11th. Rube's will choose the finalists, and fans will get to vote on the final winner on Facebook. The winner will be announced no later than Monday, October 19!
