Just north of San Antonio, at the edge of the Texas Hill Country, sits the small community of Leon Springs. Founded in the 1800s by Max Aue, Leon Spring's cityscape changed when Max's son, Rudolph, opened a one-stop gas station, garage, and grocery store. Bar-B-Q was added to the operation in 1989, and Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q has been serving up tasty food ever since. The same original recipes that built Rudy's Leon Springs' reputation are now available throughout the Southwest. Our pits are 100% wood fired with oak, a slower burning wood than the mesquite used by others. Along with time and oak, we cook with a dry spice that ensures each plate of Rudy's Bar-B-Q is perfectly ready for you. Apply some of our famous "Sause" and dinner is served.

Wonderful cuts of meat

Wonderful BAR-B-Q spot without a doubt. Had lunch selection of extra lean brisket and turkey. Delicious, fresh and tasty. Service was great and very pleasant. Even though I was a novice attending young lady provided me samples and walked me through process. Definitely recommend and will return.

The meat here is delicious! It's at a little gas station, general store type situation. There are picnic benches where you can sit and eat and watch TV. Like most of these bar-b-Que type places, the meats are expensive, but they are really good. The pork ribs are wonderful, and the turkey is really good, too. It's tasty and quite... More

I like this Lubbock location better than the one in Arizona. For some reason the meat always tastes better and is not as dry.

Very good jalapeno smoked sausage. Best I've had in Lubbock! Chopped beef is great as well. Their sauce is not too spicy

For a place that only has BBQ their BBQ was not very good. It was dry and the sauce wasn't all that great. Plus it seemed a little over priced for how much you get. The seating is also family style so if it's busy you could be sitting next to people you don't know. I just wasn't a fan.

Didn't realize this was a chain. There's one in my hometown of ABQ, but I've never been there (my husband didn't like it). It's very confusing when you walk in and try to order when you don't know the process. But luckily, one of the employees walked me through, and gave me samples and advice. I had the turkey. It...
