I had previously enjoyed Rudys on several occasions but the last two visits have not been favorable. We had family in town and took some baby back ribs, brisket, sausage and turkey home for everyone to enjoy. Well we didn't enjoy it. While it looked good the ribs were not done and chewy and the meat stuck to the bone.... More

Rudy's is a favorite of ours; whether its breakfast tacos to get us going in the morning, or a party pack for a large group. The sides are really good too - highly recommend the creamed corn.

The brisket was really dry and the ribs weren't that great to! On the bright side, the corn cream is really tasty, but we weren't there for the side dishes. Some friends told us it was delicious and we were truly dissapointed, there are a lot of best bbqs, and better prices!

We decided to try this place after a local told us it was the best and most authentic bbq in the area. He wasn't kidding! The brisket and sausages were amazing! The ribs could've stayed on the grill a few minutes longer and the flavor could've been bolder, but the cream corn more than made up for it! It was... More

Rudy's is a chain Bar-B-Q restaurant that has good service in an old time setting. Picnic tables with benches and serve yourself condiments. The meat is good but the sauce is what sets it off. The Regular Sauce is very spicy but they also have a Sissy Sauce that you can use or mix with the Regular to get the... More

As first time visitors to Texas, my wife and I wanted to try out a barbeque restaurant at least once. Staying in New Braunfels, Rudy's was a logical choice. I had checked out the options on line so I had a feel for how it works. We chose baby back ribs and the prime rib. The meat was tender. We... More

Every time we go to Schiltterbahn (6 to 12 times a summer) we either stop here on our way to in the morning to get spicy chopped breakfast tacos or on our way home in the night for spicy chopped sandwiches and some moist ends. It's both the perfect beginning and perfect ending for a perfect day! Get extra butter... More

Moved to New Braunfels TX last year and have been to this Rudy's location several times especially when we have friends or family from out of town. The quality is consistent and everyone always likes all the choices and ends up witha new favorite. While ribs and brisket are what most folks want I find the sausage and turkey hit... More

Definitely prefer the Salt Lick when in this area. BBQ is hard to do well and served in mess hall quantities leaves something to be desired. The only thing good about the 2 times I have been there was being able to handle a large group w ease.
