Lean brisket and turkey

Rudy's is our go to bbq for its brisket and smoked turkey. The lean brisket was very good and the smoked turkey moist and tender. Nothing fancy here with butcher paper and plastic forks and spoons.

Great place for Traditional Texan BBQ. Brisket, pulled pork and cream corn in a fun informal setting. If visiting Texas, Rudy's is the pinnacle place for great BBQ.

Warm family setting with great BBQ food and fantastic sides. Tea was fresh and many other beverages to choose from. Location to other businesses is a plus

What's more Texan than BBQ, right? Rudy's has definitely perfected BBQ. Get the moist brisket, their sausage and the cream corn. Although, you can't beat their turkey or chicken. Heck, get it all!

I first stumbled upon Ruday's about 5 years ago and have been hooked ever since. The sausage is top notch-dense, chewy, and amazing flavor! The chopped beef is strong, smoked turkey even stronger. The baby back ribs are to die for! My recent fascination is with their green chili stew. It's a good medium heat but that is balanced just... More

Well we are still having 90 degree days in October but it’s still a great time to be celebrating the great out doors in our Texas hill country. Rudy’s is a great place to dine in, have dinner catered for a football party or carry out to a tail gate or back yard concert. Today I chose to take Rudy’s... More

You won't go home hungry here. Free samples of the meat and hot sides. Brisket is delicious. Large open, laid back restaurant. Sauce is good as well. Would recommend.
