Our pits are 100% wood fired with oak, a slower burning wood than the mesquite used by others. Along with time and oak, we cook with a dry spice that ensures each plate of Rudy's Bar-B-Q is perfectly ready for you. Apply some of our famous "Sause" and dinner is served.

It's Just Like the One in Colorado

Once we stepped into the joint we knew we had been in a place like it before. It was a happy experience before and it was the same again. The staff is young and very enthusiastic. It's pretty much self serve with the help of the staff if we had any questions. The food is good and they are... read more

Moist brisket, creamed corn and green chilies are my & my hubbys favorites. We tried other things like them too.. spicy sauage is second favorite. Their breakfast tacos are a nice treat as well. Alwaus fu. & relaxing to visit. Samples are available if you ask. :)

Living in the great Pacific Northwest, home of amazing seafood, I always search out good local barbeque when I travel south, southeast. Although a chain, Rudy’s was highly recommended by several locals as THE PLACE TO GO in Chandler. This is a no frills eatery – perfect for a BBQ joint. You order and pick up your food at the...

If you like Texas style BBQ, think wood fired, moist meat and you are hungry then this place I'd for you! Everything and I mean everything is really really good. I especially like the moist brisket. Top it on a stuffed smoke baked potato and you've got heck of a huge meal for $7.99. Tons of side dishes available free... More

Especially enjoyed the turkey, meaty back ribs, and moist brisket. They will provide tastes of the meat if you are unsure. The sides of cole slaw and bean salad were excellent. The green chili is pretty hot/ spicey, so be ready. This is a no frills place. You order at the counter, the meats you want, by weight 1/4 lb.... More

We were staying close by and only overnight. Arrived late in day and felt like BBQ. Did not realize there were two places very close and the person checking us in was quick to identify Rudy's if we wanted brisket. We did not realize they were a chain and had no idea what to expect. Upon entering we were quickly... More

To sauce or not to sauce, that is the question. The brisket is so good without sauce that you will ponder whether or not to use rudy's BBQ sauce. Moist like a wet sponge, hard to understand how it can be that way. Just enough bite to tease you. Can you tell I like it?

This was one of our family dinner and work lunch go to places when we lived in Austin. Dine in is great and the order ahead pick-up service is convenient for when you want to take out.
