So tasty, and perfect for families

Despite crowds of people on a Saturday night, no one is queueing for a table here, always plenty of room and the line moves very quickly. Food is always fantastic, love their brisket, turkey and sausage, as well as the potato salad, beans, new potatoes, etc. Kids can be noisy here without ruining... read more

OK, is not 100% an ordinary place because is a Gas Station! Clean, with a lovely staff, you are going to eat at one of the best barbecues you ever ate before. Seriously! And do not forget to buy the pepper!! I forgot and I will never forgive myself for that.

What can you say Rudy's is always good. Fresh and tasty plus you can get as much or little as you want.

Just got back from an extended out-of-town trip. First stop..... Rudy's for brisket, sausage, and ribs. Food is always well prepared and staff friendly and ready to serve it up. Add a little corn, slaw, and a cream soda, and it's "welcome back to Texas".

I took some of the office staff to Rudy's this week for lunch and had some pretty good bbq. I ordered fatty brisket and it moist with a nice bark. Others ordered chicken and turkey and both were good.

I suppose for gas station bar b q it isn't bad. If you want a plate...too bad. For what it is they are a little overpriced. If you are looking for creamed corn with a heart attack on the side. This is your place.

My husband and I ate at Rudy's just before closing time. Everyone was friendly and courteous and although it was near closing time, they allowed us to take our time to place our order while answering all of our many questions. The food was hot, fresh and delicious!

While all the Rudy's locations we've visited have the same great service and consistently good quality, this is our closest location. I especially like their sausage links and extra moist brisket. But, their smoked turkey and sides ain't bad either. Lots of beer and soda selections too. Love their sauce which is second only to the late Artz Ribhouse version.

Been here many times and the BBQ is always great. The atmosphere is very casual and fun. You make your way to the cashiers then order by weight. If you have never been here be sure to let them know (they almost always ask). The carvers will all yell out "ROOKIE" then they will give you a samples to try.... More
