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

Is Rudy's the best barbecue in the Dallas area? It isn't. Is Rudy's good barbecue? Yes, it is. We had the brisket, jalapeno sausage, corn, and beans. Everything we ate was good. The jalapeno sausage was very good. I would definitely eat at Rudy's again.

Brought some out of towners here for dinner on a Saturday night. They loved it. I always do too. Brisket (Moist) never disapoints. Juicy smoked chicken. Good pork ribs that come off the bone easy. Pulled pork was a bit dry on this visit. Creamed corn is top notch. Good smokey beans. Tasty potato salad. Coleslaw was good and different... More

What I like most about Rudy's is it is right by the cabella's sporting goods store. I like to visit one then the other. It makes for a good manly day. The food at Rudy's is good but it's expensive considering the other BBQ options available in the north suburbs. Jalapeño sausage is in my opinion the cheapest and best... More

I had been on the road for over a week and came home hungry. This was the first place I went. One of the things I realized was that many of the really good places aren't written up because the locals don't use trip advisor. Instead travelers are bombarded with advertisements that are stuck in hotels and sometimes those are... More

So my family went to Rudy's in Allen. WE got to glass bottle of Cheerwine (NOT BEER), and they rang it up as beer. That's like 4 dollars extra. I asked for a refund and they fixed it, only to find the next day that they've charged me twice now. Then my 15 year old son went back and got... More

We tried it...once...and that was enough. There are so many BBQ choices in this area, we cannot recommend this one. The food was OK, but in small quantities at high prices.
