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... read more

Just yesterday I had a craving for barbecue. Of course Rudy's is always busy... I had an opportunity to order my food by phone. My order was ready immediately. As I walked in the restaurant I was greeted immediately. The staff was extremely friendly! I do have to thank Ray- the person that helped me. He was in a great... More

Best BBQ in Laredo and maybe the best restaurant. The Turkey is to die for and the BBQ sauce! I could not get enough. Also try the new potatoes as well as they are worth the money! Sweet tea is the best in Texas.

The food was outstanding! We tried a little bit of everything, from brisquet to chicken to ribs to sausage. The flavor was outstanding and most of what I ate didnt need any type of sauce. The ribs fell off the bone and the cream corn was amazing. I highly recommend Rudy's to anyone who wants to taste what REAL BBQ... More

Rudy's is decent barbecue but if you think it is better than average than you have never left Laredo. It's a chain people. I had to rate it terrible because it should not be #1 in any city. Go to Rudy's if you want average BBQ, or excellent, world class BBQ if you're from Laredo.

As the father of a special needs child, I tend to be more critical than most on restaurants. I have to say that Rudy's BBQ more than exceeded my expectations. The seating accommodation were more that adequate for my son's wheelchair. The food was excellent, and service was friendly. I would highly recommend Rudy's to anyone looking for somewhere to...

If you're looking to get your Smoked BBQ fix, this place will do while in you're in Laredo. The customer service is always fast and friendly. The prices are reasonable and it's a good option if you have a large family to feed. I would suggest buy two or three meats by the pound and you'll have plenty to feed... More

A colleague recommended this restaurant before I went on my trip to Laredo. His recommendation was correct. This place had the best BBQ I ever had. I tried 1/2 lbs of soft brisket, coleslaw, beer, and peach cobbler for desert. The brisket melts in your mouth. I wish we had Rudy's in Maryland.
