Good BBQ for a chain restaurant

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.

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!!

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.

I'm not from Texas but I can tell you it's 10 times better than Iowa BBQ!!! I've tried just about everything they have and it's all really good. Favorite is the brisket and the Turkey. Kids think the creamed corn is a dessert. Convenient and great for bigger groups and families.

Excellent breakfast tacos! Made fresh to order. Jalapeño sausage was delicious. 8 tacos and a sausage wrap - $22! My kids talked me into it - pleasantly surprised!

In Texas, it is generally smart to avoid chain restaurant but sometimes you don't have a choice especially if one in your group says "I came all the way to Texas. I want some Bar-B-Q" Rudy's is a well known local chain that is growing beyond the borders of Texas. I hope that it is not a mistake. The brisket... More

Went with the family for some good ole BBQ, sat on the patio which was great because the kids could be kids. They enjoyed the picnic tables & open fire. The meat was amazing. Thought the loaves of wonder white bread was kinda weird, but hey kids love it. No one cared that the kids were up and down or... More
