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.

Interesting BBQ place in Lubboci

Had lunch there for the first time a few weeks ago. Although I was born and raised in Texas, it had been some time since I had been there and I wanted to have BBQ on this trip. I have eaten at a number of really good BBQ places and I'll add this to the list. Very casual dining. You... read more

The BBQ was okay I've had better. But not to shabby ... If you like to have your own table without someone breathing down your neck I wouldn't go you have to share tables with people ....

This is a good place to come in with a group when you want some good BBQ. Dine in or carry out with drive through. Good breakfast burritos too. Iced down bottled beer selection.

Menu offers typical BBQ fare. Chicken, ribs, pork, brisket and sausage. We had chicken, brisket and sausage. The chicken was very good indeed. There was WAY too much fat left on the brisket and the sausage was just so so at best. They don't offer plates (paper or otherwise). You eat on a large piece of paper. Prices were high... More

Stopped at Rudy's, on my way home. Ordered the ribs, which were cut in front of me. Picked up some beans and desert from their warmer. Paid, and proceeded to picnic tables. Went to drink machine, and picked up onions, pickles at condiment bar. I really should have left, then and there! Ribs were dry and tough, beans were cold... More

I have eaten here a few times now when visiting family in Lubbock. The bbq is very good. They have several options for sauce as well as a fixin's bar with onions, pickles, etc. It's walk up and order service and seat yourselves. Reasonable prices.

The brisket is good, and I mean good. The sides are a bit weak. The sauce is great and worth the money. A bit on the pricey side at $38 for meat 2 small sides and 2 small desserts. Saying that, I would pay it again if I was in Lubbock.

Rudy's is my favorite BBQ period. Always fresh, great meat, great sides, and unreal cobbler. I've heard their breakfast burritos are great too but I haven't tried them.

Rudy's is known for consistently good bbq, so you can't go wrong here when you want some barbecue. This location (both times) has been clean, excellent food and service has been friendly and quick.

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.
