This is my third visit to Rudy's and I guess I should have reviewed them earlier as they were clearly better a year ago. Both my wife and I have had their signature 'wet' beef brisket plate but unlike in the past, both of our briskets had far too marbling and/or fat. We each had half of a pound and... More

While the food was really good and the atmosphere was good also, the portions were smaller than what they should be for the price. And, if you don't like eating close to someone else, this is not for you. It's family style.

When you walk into Rudy's the smell of meat on a pit permeates the air. AAAHHHH. It is a wonderful experience. The brisket and smoked turkey are sumptuous. I also enjoy the potato salad. The green chili is great. The restaurant has the ambiance of one of those southern gas stations that have a BBQ joint attached to it. If... More

The food is great and the concept is interesting. Bought several different types of barbecue and sides to share as a family. Had enough leftovers for lunch the next day. Will return!

With out-of-state family together Thanksgiving weekend we decided to try Rudy's. Having called way ahead about a private room [because we can be rowdy] staff had done nothing to get ready for us. We had to wait until someone could be found to open the back room and it was COLD! They said they would turn on some heat but... More

The service is fast and quality. The food is a little pricey but was excellent with regard to taste, freshness, and presentation. Love the offerings for sides. Not the best BBQ in town but definitely top 3!

The staff is friendly, the BBQ and sides are okay, the sauce not that great. I have friends who love this place, but I find their brisket way too fatty and greasy for my liking, especially as it cools down. I have been there 3 times in the past 2 years, and it's been consistently bland.
