Rendezvous Famous Seasoning is the Original “Dry Rub.” Founder, Charlie Vergos, created this rub back in the 1950s based on his father’s unique Greek seasonings and cajun spices he discovered on visits to New Orleans. Rendezvous Famous Seasoning is good on just about anything—ribs, chicken, deviled eggs, baked potatoes, fish, grilled veggies, bloody marys, popcorn—you name it. Photo courtesy Craig Thompson
