Meat by the 1/2 pound. What more needs to be said!!!

I realize that this is a chain, but when a gas station and BBQ store are in the same location...it's a good thing. You walk in, walk by the ice filled coolers of beer and soft drinks, pick up your sides...and order. Bam! Meat on demand. We had both the lean and moist brisket. I'm a lean meat... read more

Meat lovers delight. Had the most brisket and hubby had 1/2/chicken. Both were great. Two sauces available, original - little spicy, and sissy sauce.

This is an old fashion, KC style BBQ. We waited in line for 30 minutes, a wait that was well worth it. We had pulled pork and baby back ribs. The pulled pork was especially good. The ribs were cooked perfectly, tender but not fall off the bone The sauces were well spiced. Despite not having it listed on the... More

I always bring family here to try out the great BBQ. My favorite is the loaded potato with meat. They sometimes have a long line, but it goes quick and is worth it.

Rudy's originates in Texas which explains both the Texas-style sauces -- and the fact that Texans rave about this place. And they are right on most fronts. The meat is smoked until it's fall off the bone good ... the sides are tasty (our family favorite is their cream corn) and the picnic table, eat-off-a-butcher-board-sheet atmosphere keeps things very casual....

Eaten here twice, but never again. The building is cute and it is a great place for a large group to eat together at long tables, but the food just isn't that good. Our group tried ribs, pulled pork, sausage, and beef (they were out of chicken). Meat is sold by the pound or in a sandwich, but no one... More

Being from Kansas city, we have high standards for BBQ. Meats were excellent, potato said was good. Would have been nice to have fries...beans were Texas style, not really our preference but they were good. Fed our family of 5 very reasonably and easily. Would go again!

We are from Kansas City and know bbq. This place rivals any where we have been. Only place I've ever been to that will let sample before you order. We had brisket and chicken. Both were outstanding. The banana putting is awesome. If you like baked beans, prepare yourself - they use pinto beans. They're good but different. Go early... More

Rudy's BBQ is a Texas-style BBQ restaurant that has a great family atmosphere, great for date night, a night out with the boys, etc. This location does not have a real "country store" that you would think of (like Cracker Barrel type). Personally, I like the meats they have. All are most and delicious. I do not care for any... More
