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.

We bought a little bit of everything and had a great family meal. Laid back and wonderful after hours of tubing on Comal River.

I make my way to Rudy's every time I visit Schlitterbahn, that's one combination made in heaven. We always get 3 lbs of juicy slow smoked brisket and 1 lbs of sausage and make ourselves back to our resort room to devour the best bbq in Texas. This ratio of BBQ to sausage works just right to feed a family... More

Love this place. Go every chance I get. Brisket is amazing. And best sauce by far. Love the cream corn. Sausage is a let down though.
