A must go for BBQ lovers!

We used to live in TX and we really missed being able to go to Rudy's. We were visiting CO from CA and when we saw that sign...we both got giddy!! I could seriously drink that amazing creamed corn, and the turkey, brisket....it's all just sent from Heaven!

This was a good stop. Only complaint is the ice tasted like it had been stored with the meat. Ice tasted like animal fat. Otherwise great brisket

I came back in town for business, and when we visit we never leave without a stop at this awesome restaurant. Always spotless, excellent service, genuinely happy employees, high quality food! We live in FL and the only smoking they have is with electric smokers. This place is the real deal! Don't miss the brisket sandwich, turkey, jalapeño sausage, creamed... More

Interesting format for dining but absolutely the BEST BBQ I have had. BBQ is ordered by weight and served on a sheet of paper, Pork loin was lean but moist and tender. Moist beef was outstanding - I could have eaten a whole pound myself. This place is a MUST if you like bbq

Not knocking the food in any way, it was good. We went on a Saturday, line was out the door. The line moved fairly quickly. Better have your order figured out by the time you get to the register or you will draw some angry glances from patrons behind you. Had to sit outside with the bees, no tables available.

I love that you can order and take your food to your table, so you save $$ because you don't need to include a tip. We always take our Rudy's cups so our drinks are under $1! Their sweet tea is great but so is the unsweetened tea and soft drinks! The place is always clean and we love the... More

I've been here twice now and not bad but also not great either. Went on Sunday and the line was insane but not worth the wait. No cornbread which was a bummer since it was BBQ.

There are all kinds of Bar-B-Q places scattered around. Our motorcycle group speaks highly of this location-so when I got a chance off we went with our friends. That happened to be the first weekend in March! It's good bar-b-q. Maybe not the most high falooty place with it's wax paper, plasticware, and styrafoam, but everything the four of us... More

Excellent food, lots of cold drink choices and plenty of sitting room to enjoy it. My 4 year old grandaughter requests to eat here.
