Yummy BBQ!

Texas has lots of BBQ places, but I like Rudy's! There are lots of meat choices and the creamed corn is AMAZING. I had never been to such a fun eating place before moving to Texas. Rudy's makes BBQ fun as well as tasty.

LOVE this place! The set up and the atmosphere in there are so unique, very rustic but really great. The food is just too good, my favorites are the moist brisket, the ribs, the sausage.....I could keep going, so I guess almost all of their menu is on my "to eat" list! On a very busy day it can happen... More

Good but I still prefer Smitty's in Lockhart! Make no mistake, this is good. I would not hesitate to stop here anytime as I always carry my emergency BBQ knife! This is the second Rudy's I have visited (BBQ 2 times today as this was an early dinner), and I was not disappointed.

When we first walked into Rudy's I thought that it was a store! Then I realized that past the store was a line of people waiting to order BBQ! It was explained to me that this was a "family style" restaurant. We picked up our bottled sodas, potato salad, chocolate pudding and beers on the way to the counter. We... More

Expensive !!!! Since you eat off a Paper Towel on a picnic table - Not a plate - They could do one of two things - Lower the price or serve bigger portions! Drive to Austin and hit the BEST BBQ for the same price!

It's your standard gas station Rudy's, with the checkered tablecloths, great good, friendly people, fast service, and a line at dinnertime that moves quickly. Seating might be a bit tight at times, but things move quickly. There's indoor and outdoor seating, and a cool hand wash that's almost like a car wash. Check it out!

My co-workers told me about decent and fast. I came to Texas for work and I love BBQ. The first thing I asked was where do I get BBQ, I have to hop on a plane in about 2 hours. Everyone told me to stop by Rudy's, they are very nice and have a great selection. My concern was more... More

The breakfast tacos are always fresh and generously filled, the salsa choices are outstanding, and the friendliness of staff can't be beaten. I can even get my taco fillings in a cup, which helps with my low-carb diet. Yes, they have the best "worst" barbecue in Texas, but breakfast at Rudy's is my favorite. We go there several times a...
