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.

This location is very similar to the other stores and provides very good BBQ. They offer pulled pork that some locations do not offer. For some reason this location does not offer "full rack" priced baby back pork ribs. They have them and they are priced per pound, but most other locations price their baby back ribs by the pound...

Client ordered in from Rudy's today. Excellent bbq. The beef and pork ribs melted in my mouth, the brisket was amazing, the smoked sausage was top notch and the sides were all very good as well. I would recommend this joint to anyone, meat eater or not...but it would be there loss!

Friends of mine chose this Rudy's for lunch. I am not big on BBQ, but they said it was good. What made this Rudy's better than average for me is, my order of half-chicken was really, really, good. Every time I eat BBQ, I get some kind of chicken. Since BBQ is more of a meal for brisket, sausage, and... More

Not the best food in Laredo - but not bad BBQ. We ordered half a pound each of brisket and turkey 3 sides 1 dessert and 2 drinks. Total was 40 dlls. Note that meat portions were over cut and our half pound requests easily were .75 which upped the bill. The turkey was great but the "moist" brisket was... More
