Good but a little expensive for what it is

Took the family here while we were staying in the area. Overall great meal, but 68.00 for a family of four for a real basic meal with no alcohol was a little pricey for the type of decor and the area. The ribs were great! They had an interesting brown sugar type taste. If you are a fan of BBQ... read more

If you are travelling Interstate 70 through Ohio you have to stop at Springfield (Ohio) exit 2 or exit 3 an check out this place. Their pulled pork sandwich rivals the best that we had in Memphis. Their sauces complement the pork as well. And............their baked beans are different than any I have experienced.............and that is no small number!! Pulled... More

WE had the buffet. We arrived at around 6 p.m., the buffet sign stated that it was until 4 p.m. but it was still running. Due to time constraints decided to have the buffet. The food temperature was not hot, slightly warm. The barbeque was tasty.The corn casserole was very good. We were greeting with a friendly smile. The interior... More

Haven't eaten here for long long time and thought maybe it had changed. Still the same old picnic table / paper towel atmosphere. Service is good but food is sub standard quality. Like potluck you don't really care for.

If you are in the mood for barbecue, they you will find Rudy's to be more than adequate. The food was simple, but well prepared. The meat was a tad dry, but the barbecue sauce helped it along nicely. The baked beans were good and the green beans with ham was very tasty. The place is strictly pick-up. You order... More

I glanced at their web site and I thought they had a 1/2 rib combo with 1/4 chicken, but when I called for a carry out they said they didn't , it's a rib/brisket combo...but they said they could toss me a chicken breast instead of the brisket to which I agreed. I ordered two sides , green beans and... More

Enthusiastic, pleasant greeting by great employee upon our entrance. Gave us a thorough explanation of the menu and their award-winning items. No table service. BBQ, green beans and au gratin potatoes very good!

I saw Rudy's advertized when traveling through Ohio and chose it over the usual fast food options. The brisket was delicious and a generous serving. The service was quick and the crowd seemed to be mostly local working folks. You have to get your own drink and utensils and the garbage cans in the dining room were a little bit... More

I did not know what to expect from Rudy's. I do know I was fantasizing about the food for a few days before I went. Walking in the place looked clean and cozy so I ordered my sandwich with 2 sides came to under 10 bucks and the food was wonderful. Given this is not an "upscale" place but it... More
