Excellent Brisket

We have eaten at Rudy's many times and enjoyed consistently good BBQ, especially the moist brisket. The coleslaw is delicious ... And the other sides are good as well. Importantly for my wife, neither the BBQ sauce nor the coleslaw are reported to contain gluten. Seating is picnic style in a... read more

Dana the cashier was great in molding my order. Can go wrong with jalapeño sausage, brisket sandwich and Prime Rib on a Sunday. My lucky wife got to have an icy beer and root beer for the kids Don't forget to try the coleslaw to wash it down I wasn't thrilled with the baby back but moist brisket was great... More

BBQ is consistently some of the best. Love the cream corn and the green chili stew. Been eating here over ten years and never disappointed.

Good portion of brisket. Nice smokiness. Enjoyable decor. Very good sauce, if you use sauce. Potato salad was just right. Easy access and easy to find for a newby.There are many opinions about bbq, but this was my favorite on this trip to Texas.

As I travel through the state of Texas I get to eat at many places and most chains I tend to stay away from with the exception of Rudy's BBQ. The food is always good and helps with my huge BBQ cravings that I always have. If you feel like BBQ and don't know where to go. You can't go... More

This is a B-B-Q place which is no frills dining. It is like an old style Texas Backyard Eatery. The food is great and the B-B-Q sauce is great on all the meats. I love the Potatoes, the Creamed Corn is outstanding, their Beans are spicy and delicious. I go their often even for Breakfast Tacos which are outstanding. New... More

I have been a Rudy's fan for over 10 years. I stopped smoking brisket because I cannot make it myself better than Rudy's. My favorites are brisket, smoked turkey, pinto beans, and Sissy Sauce.

BBQ restaurant where U can buy gas?? Skeptical, but pleasantly surprised. Selection of meats by the pound: white or wheat bread free (make your own Sammies) & delicious cole slaw, potato salad & pickle/ pepper bar. Very polite, helpful staff. Just right for a great meal (& great price) after a day in the hot Texas sun or river outing!!

The BBQ is pretty good for a chain restaurant. The service is stand in line to order and pick up at the counter. Portions are generous. If you have time I would recommend going a few more miles to eat BBQ in Lockhart or Lulling.
