Great Place for a BBQ Lunch!

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... read more

I used to hit this place for what I call utility BBQ. It's not the best and it's not the worst, but it is good and the peppery sauce is good.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn that is right across the street from Rudy's. Loved the convenience of picking up some take-out for dinner in our room. I've only been to a Rudy's a couple of times (we don't have one where I live) and so was a little unsure how much to order for my family of 5. The... More

The sign out front says, "worst barbeque in Texas". NOT TRUE!! This is some of the best brisket, sausage and ribs around. The service is friendly and efficient. We stopped for lunch and saw a long line. However, the line moved quickly. This is old fashion service, you eat off a piece of paper. The new potatoes are really good.... More

Rudys is a God send. I swear they put crack or something in their brisket. The creamed corn is ridiculous. All in all, a must stop place where ever you go.

My Grandson wanted meat for dinner. There is no better place than Rudy's. I was on my own with a two and a half year old and an eight month old baby, who also could eat meat. The manager was so helpful, when my order was ready he carried ithe tray to the utensil area, beverage area and the to... More

Amazing BBQ in a gas station...yep, that's right. I said Amazing BBQ in a gas station. As I stepped up to the counter, the cashier asked if I had ever been there before, saying no, I was greeted with the whole cook team yelling, welcome to Rudy's! As I looked over the menu, the cashier grabbed samples of pretty much... More
