Good downscale BBQ joint

If you don't mind sitting on cheap folding chairs at giant dorm-style tables, Rudy's has some very tasty barbeque. You order meats in half-pound increments, so be ready for that. The staff is very pleasant, and will let first-timers sample a meat before ordering. I found the $9 folding chairs a... read more

Stopped her with my family to get our Bbq on! Had the brisquet coleslaw and new potatoes and banana pudding. Yummy! I wish there was a Rudy's near me but since there's not we enjoy it even more!

After going over the reviews, we expected to have a treat and quite honestly it is nothing out of ordinary. Good service and an interesting location. Food is OK.

I've been enjoying Rudy's BBQ for years and today's lunch was as delicious as ever. Smoked Baby Back Ribs and Pulled Pork. Can't go wrong.

This place has really good barbecue. It is a chain; I've seen (but not yet visited) one in San Antonio as well). The meats are nice and smoky flavored (if you don't like a smoked BBQ flavor, this won't be for you). The meats are served sans BBQ sauce; you add your own. I wish there were more sauces to... More

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.
