Loved it!

The staff was so friendly and awesome! Answered all of our questions, since that was our first Texan barbecue experience. The meat is soooo good! Amazing smoked flavor, juicy and tender. I also enjoyed the casual atmosphere because when you think down home barbecue, you think casual. I was not... read more

I have been to this place twice in as many weeks and could easily see myself gaining hundreds of pounds if I was to stay in the area much longer. Their choice is standard American BBQ with Chicken, Turkey, Pulled Pork, Brisket and Sausage [both regular and Jalapeno]. The amount of meat on the sandwiches is could easily make another... More

Our family who is from TX took us there. It had gas pumps out front so I didnt know what to expect. As you walked in there was a trough sized cooler filled with ice and all types of beer. The restaurant was clean and employees were pleasant and helpful. A big shout out to them. There was all types... More

We've been to this location three times over the past year - and each time the experience has left us happy and satisfied. It's a semi-unique concept - ordering by weight and volume, and not having a plate to eat off of - but it works! Great staff - good food - hard to beat. We'll be back!

A BBQ joint mixed with a gas station? Hey, only in TX!! It's a walk-up counter, and the meat is served alone by weight. Then, you buy all the sides seperately. The brisket was amazing. And the decor is large and inviting. We had lots of BBQ in Dallas during our visit, and Rudy's was at the top. Highly recommend.

I'd been craving BBQ chicken, and my husband thinks Rudy's has the best. But instead of stopping with chicken, we got sausage, pinto beans, potato salad, corn, and two ribs. The chicken and sausage were expected. Then I remembered how dry the ribs were last time I ate at Rudy's and told my husband that no matter how delicious they... More

This wasn't my first rodeo at a Rudy's, but my first at the Arlington location. You expect consistency and we got it. My moist brisket was delicious and the potato salad to die for. The prices are right. Don't come here looking for a gourmet meal - this is traditional TX BBQ.

This was our first time to Rudy's. We were greeted by an employee who asked if it was our first time to Rudy's-it must have been the lost look on our faces. She explained how Rudy's worked and offered to get a couple of samples. The turkey melted in my mouth, and I ended up getting that for my dinner.... More

Same as always, everything is fresh, tender and spicy when it should be. While we used the drive-thru to take a huge sack of meats home to share, there is plenty of seating "inside," on their enclosed patio half-way outside, and they are constructing what looks like will either be outside seating or an expansion of the enclosed patio seating....
