Good BBQ served up on butcher paper

My family has visited the Rudy's in Allen on numerous occasions since it first opened and have never been disappointed. After seeing the original Rudy's in San Antonio featured on a cable food show years ago, we made it a must stop on a family vacation to Sea World -San Antonio. Rudy has since... read more

Rudy's is where you go for spicy Bar-B-Que, smoked turkey and a ton of fresh fixins' like potato salad, pickles, onions and the rest. Rudy's has many locations in Texas but we like the Allen and Round Rock stores the best. The service is fast, accurate and with a Texas smile. If you don't like Rudy's Bar-B-Que you don't like...

Rudy's Country Store & Barbecue never disappoints! Very fast service, very friendly staff. I highly recommend the brisket - moist. I also tried their Green Chile Stew, which I enjoyed. My traveling partner recommends the creamed sweet corn.

Really good Texas barbecue, I love the flavor of the bark, nice smoky flavor. I had the moist brisket with cream corn and beans. The chocolate pudding is a must try.

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.
