This is a fun place to visit. Make sure that you tell them if it's your first time. They give you samples and help you with their unique ordering process. This is more of a fast food type venue. But it's a hoot. I'd definitely go back. I'd just suggest to get the ribs. I've never had good brisket and... More

Get the brisket, it's the best! The jalapeno sausage and creamed corn are also delicious. Food is good, service is okay. They offer glass bottled sodas, and a variety of fountain drinks. There is limited indoor seating with A/C, but worth it whether you are sitting inside or out or getting it to go.

Read reviews and decided to give Rudy's a surprise, food and service were amazingly good. Variety of BBQ meats are available, neebees are given a sample of anything they are interested in trying. We ordered half a pound of smoked Turkey and beef ribs both were excellent, flavorful and moist. BBQ sauce is a bit in the tangy side but... More

Some of the best brisket I have tasteda nd everything else is delicious too. If you are a military veteran they will give you a discount as well. We have been here a dozen times at least and will continue!

The smoked turkey is spot on and it's low cal so you can indulge in the decedent creamed corn. The staff is very friendly and prices are reasonable. They have great breakfast tacos as well.

We're from Kansas City and decided to do a BBQ crawl while in Texas on vacation. There are so many BBQ restaurants in Texas but we had quite a few locals tell us that we needed to try Rudy's. I usually stay away from chain restaurants but decided to give them a try. It was excellent! Their concept is a... More

What can I say, some of the best brisket in the world and everything else is delicious too. A must try joint for any BBQ fans visiting, especially families since the meat is quick to get and fun to eat on the wax paper and picnic tables. Tell them its your first time there, and you can sample different meats... More

Very good BBQ and sides, and don't be fooled by the gas station out front. Inside you'l find a roomy well run BBQ joint with in and out door seating. Not to be missed!
