Rudy's concept is pretty great. I love the look inside the old gas station. It's a fantastic gimmick to get people inside the door. The main problem with the Allen location is too little parking in a very traffic dense area. The food is decent. It isn't anything I would rave over or make my #1 stopping place, but I... More

We saw the low gasoline prices displayed as we traveled down the service road so we headed in for gas and stayed for barbeque. You order by the pound, get some bread and sides that you may want and head for a picnic table to eat some good barbeque. There is not a lot of great barbeque in Dallas, contrary... More

having only recently moved to Texas within the last year, i am still learning what is considered tried and true Texas Barbecue, and what is an imitator. I am not sure where Rudy's falls within the spectrum of authentic Texas BBQ, but i can say with some authority it is hands-down the most delicious smoked meat I have ever tasted.... More

I have been there recently coming from Europe and visiting Dallas. It is to me the best barbecue place in the Dallas area (I have seen so far :)) I love their brisket sandwiches and also the atmosphere in the restaurant is very authentic and fantastic ! Try it !!!

My son and couple of his friends were visiting right after we had moved in, and we needed to pick something up for dinner. We did the drive through at Rudy's and it was great. Excellent BBQ, and quick and we easy with the drive thru. .brisket and potato salad, along with great sauce, everyone was happy. .

Just wow, every time! Rudy's captures the best that is down home Texas BBQ. Every choice of their savory fare is simply grand. The service is warm and Texas friendly. You can have a filling meal for under $10. One can always find great BBQ in the Lone Star State. But you will always find great BBQ at any Rudy's... More

The entire family met there for dinner. We had enough people to fill one of their back rooms. The food was scrumptious and my husband and I ordered a little of everything. The ribs were some of the best I ever had and the brisket was out of this world. I definitely would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Allen,... More
