Me and my family enjoy all the food but especially their breakfast tacos. They don't skimp on the ingredients. The Rudy's Chop is the best. We like them so much, I even used them to cater my kids' teacher luncheon. We served the stuffed bakers!! They were big enough to make 2 meals out of them. The teachers couldn't believe... More

We like to buy it by the pound and then split it up. Bread and sauce are free as are pickles and peppers. The sauce is the only BBQ sauce that I like as much as my own. Bring your cup back every time for cheap refills.

If you go through the drive thru, they give you scraps. I have been through the drive thru a couple of times and got very poor BBQ. The sauce they give you is not near enough to even tickle your taste buds and the meat they give you is primarily fat! Once you drive off and get to where you... More

The second Rudy's I have been to and would love to go back again. Not the cheapest barbecue place I have been to, but the taste is great. The turkey is something else and the moist brisket was superb. The coleslaw, beans, potato salad are all pretty good as well. To end the meal the peach cobbler was a half... More

Don't let the fact that the restaurant is located inside a gas station stop you from enjoying some AWESOME BBQ!! My husband and I both had the baby back ribs and they were exceptional. Our kids had various sandwiches and they all loved them as well. Super friendly & helpful service which we appreciated and enjoyed as it was our... More

Stopped in for lunch with a friend to eat some BBQ at Rudy's in South Arlington. It was lunchtime but the line moved along quickly. I had the beef brisket...fatty side. It was cooked just right and had great flavor. Rudy's has a nice condiment bar with onions, pickles, peppers, etc. to finish out your plate. I left with a... More

Go there for that. Everything else is substandard...and I really don't care if Mitt Romney likes it, or not!

I tried Rudy's with a friend on a business trip and truly enjoyed the experience. A classic Texas Bar B Q. I suggest this to all Bar B Q enthusiasts.

I decided on stopping in after the recommendation of someone who had heard good things about it themselves. Rudy's is designed to look like a road side filling station that doubles as a bar-b-que joint. The gas pumps out front are real and it does have a little store in the front, but the main attraction is the "que". You... More
