Picnic tables, folding chairs and a big old Lone star flag! None of that matters once you sink your teeth into the food. One taste explains what all the hype about BBQ is about! The baby back ribs are simply the best I've ever had - bar none. Shared beef brisket, pulled pork and sausage with my 2 colleges. All... More

Stand in line, pick your pre-made sides out of the fridge, pick your drinks out of tin buckets, order BBQ by the pound (weighed on a scale) and get it served in a paper lined industrial black plastic crate (think old fashioned milk crates cut down to 2 inches tall). Ribs and brisket were so good, the family begged me... More

Finally tried this place. Fun atmosphere and service line moves quickly. Ordered prime rib, moist brisket, baby back ribs and jalapeño sausage, as well as, potato salad and bbq beans. Prime rib was a little dry, ribs were meaty and delish, the star of this place is their brisket. Incredibly moist, tender and delicious. The potato salad was creamy and... More

Rudy's is awesome! From the first time I was taken there, I was hooked! Everything I've tried has been good, but my favorite is the chopped BBQ sandwich which typically contains enough meat for 2 sandwiches. I pair that with with Lay's BBQ chips and a ton of Rudy's BBQ Sause...it is heavenly! My family loves the brisket, sausage (regular... More

Although not the best BBQ I have had, it was good. The BBQ sauce is a little on the spicy side (which is good). We use their Turkey Rub at home for chicken and turkey, so pick some up. The slaw and potato salad are very good. The brisket was ok, not the best I have had. It was tender,... More

If your just going for the barbecue you won't be disappointed, although the selection is limited. If you are looking for a nice place to eat with some ambiance or a place to have a drink with friends, go somewhere else. This is a order at the counter, pick up your food, eat at picnic table place. Nothing else. But... More

This was hands down the best brisket I have ever had! It was my first time there and the staff gave samples of their meats and that moist brisket was fabulous. As well as the green chile stew and creamed corn. This place is a must do and you can get gas there too

My family go here monthly. It is very popular. Even though it's a chain--One of our three or four favorite barbecue restaurants in the houston area. Tasty brisket--can get it two different ways--never too dry. Very limited side orders--not a plus but two kinds of sause and great pudding. Lines can be long but everything moves quickly--no wait--you pay by... More

Rudy’s Country Store & Bar-B-Q is a nice place for some casual dining. Featuring brisket, ribs, potato salad, corn on the cob, and other like foods, Rudy’s is the place to go for BBQ in a country setting. Everyone has their favorite food at Rudy’s. I find all of the meat options tasty, but my favorites are the beef brisket... More

As a 'local', I never miss the chance to eat at Rudy's. ALL the meat is awesome and be sure to take home some sauce and especially the rub!
