What a fun place!

I knew we should go here when we passed by time and time again, and the parking lot was full every time. It was a fun place to eat, the experience was great, and the food was delicious!

Dropped by for a late lunch after spending the morning at Pikes Peak. We were warmly greeted and asked if we'd been in before. We hadn't, so the hostess told us to request free samples. My mom had a gigantic baked potato with bbq turkey and cheese. She enjoyed it. My husband had ribs. They were meaty and well seasoned.... More

Wow, can they serve a bunch of people at once. The place was slammed and the line moved just great. I strongly recommend the turkey and also the campfire beans. Brisket was good too!

Easily the best BBQ in town. The brisquit sandwich is my favorite. Don't forget they open early and have excellent breakfast tacos. The only downer is the crowds, this place is packed at any and all times. The line does move quickly though.

My first visit to Rudy's was an eye-opener. You wait in line to order and watch the meat being sliced and packed as you wait. You carry whatever you ordered to a picnic-type table, picking up plastic cutlery on the way. No plates, so I found it odd to be eating a large slab of prime rib placed on a... More

They have great BBQ and sweet tea! I've been here multiple times and always look forward to going back again. Ribs, pork, sausage, beef, it's all good. Their sides are ok, like the cole slaw and potatoe salad.

This is a really good place to have some really good barbeque you won't be disappointed with this choice a little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for. I visited this place both times I've been to Colorado and I'll continue too when ever I go back.

We had never visited a Rudy's prior to this vacation and didn't know what to expect inside. A greeter explained how everything worked since we were first timers. Then we got in line, which moved very quickly, so don't let it scare you off. Service is fast and friendly. On your way through the line you can pick up bottled... More

Try to eat BBQ anytime we travel and this place had great service, even provided samples before ordering. Would stop again!
