I can vouch for Rudy's Barbeque in Allen,TX at having pretty dang close to the best smoked turkey I've ever had. The beans ( make sure you request brisket added, free of charge) are a 8 out of 10. The potato salad is a 9 out of 10. The brisket is had either moist or dry and I wish get... More

This is a chain, but it is actually really good. I have eaten here quite a few times and the food is always consistent and good. It is not an upscale place by any means, but it is always friendly and I have never had a bad experience.

Rudy's Bar-B-Que is great food, fast service and the customer service is consistent no matter what Rudy's location you visit (I have tried Austin, Round Rock and San Antonio locations). I really like their smoked turkey and Rudy's doesn't limit the amount of condiments you want to pile on like fresh onions, pickles, etc. If you want some great food... More

The meats offered had a good flavoring. Sauce is incredible. Loved the fixings stand. More of a family style serving to share. Baked potato was off the chart, but who messes up a baked potato? Don't be scared off if there is a long line, it will go by fast. Not crazy about the sides that were offered.

You can't go wrong with Rudy's BBQ. The atmosphere is always friendly and the food is always great. They let first timers try a bit of everything so you can find what you like, and trust me, you'll find something. Anytime im in North Dallas area I try to find a reason to stop in.

After an incredible experience at Rudy's in Austin, I thought that Allen would be just as great. It was not. We ordered the turkey which was very moist and very good. It was the best meat that we ordered. The pulled pork was really good, too. The moist brisket had WAY TOO MUCH FAT. Yes, I know that moist brisket... More

The smoked turkey and brisket are superior. They offer their fare on a $4.99 sandwich, which is a great value, or by the pound. This is a must-try, if you enjoy bbq.

Rudy's is the best barbecue you can get at a chain restaurant the brisket either moist or dry is absolutely fantastic I warn you it is addictive plus the picnic style atmosphere is always a pleasure whether you're in Dallas or Austin or any of their numerous locations
