The Best Chain

As a BBQ entusiasta and cook, I can tell you that Rudy's is the BEST in the chain category, hands down. Quality food and good service. Stay away from Bill Miller's, you can croak from food posioning.

Rudy's BBQ offered very tasty food in a casual, "rustic Texas" atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and helpful (when I asked about the ribs, I was given a hefty free sample). The BBQ aroma is intoxicating, and the food was delicious (I had the pulled pork sandwhich, ribs and a side of potatoe salad). During my ten day stay... More

Rudy's is family style order by the pound BBQ joint. Very good quality. The green chile stew was fantastic as were the ribs & brisket. Great assortment of unique bottled beers...I tried Prickly Pear. Cold good iced tea and outstanding peach cobbler.

My biggest satisfaction w Rudy's is the consistency in the products they sell. Flavor is as one expects and the quality is consistent. Also enjoy the quick service and the family atmosphere.

It's Rudy's famous BBQ and the Laredo location is as good as the original! Excellent food and customer service is superb! Try the Rudy's original spicy beans for a kick.

I've been away from Texas for 4 yrs, and what a wonderful experience and meal dining here was. Rustic interior, friendly staff, and good food. What more can one ask for. I took some friends with me, and all left smiling and wanting to visit again before we must leave. I had the brisket sandwich - better than excellent. The... More

Our group decided to go to Rudy's based on Trip Advisor along with a recommendation from one of our teammates. When we pulled up, I wasn't quite sure this would be where we would be eating tonight. The inside was just long tables, and looked like a place I would have visited back in college. After picking out our drinks,... More

And a Jalapeño sausage egg and cheese they are both great combinations. Reasonable (cheap) priced for the great quality!!!! I'll be back!!
