Try the corn

Creamed corn & Turkey excellent. Other meats really good & well seasoned. Didn't care for their sauce. Don't go looking for plates...you eat off Brown paper. Great time.

It's very frustrating that it depends on which employee you get to wait on you. whether or not you can get the item you go in to order. We really enjoyed their brisket tacos. They're great value and tasty. The problem is… If you arrive after 10:30 AM , part of the staff will make it for you, half will... More

Had lunch here today after lunch rush. A couple of customers inside but not busy. Several employees behind the counter playing not working. I shouldn't have to wait 15 minutes in line to order because all of the male employees are flirting with some women. Food was good but service was horrible.

This is simple Texas style B-B-Q. You go to a large counter and order what you "need" from a large menu on the wall. The person who takes your order preps it and gives you a tray with the goodies! I had a Turkey sandwich (probably 1/2 lb) , a friend had a huge stuffed baked potato, another had 5... More

Yesterday here in East Texas was a mild 76 degrees(late January) so I got the motorcycle out of the shop and went for a ride. Rode over to Tyler and ate lunch at Rudy's BBQ, First time for me to go there. It won't be my last. The brisket and smoked turkey are both delicious. You've also got to try... More

No nonsense, all-meat dishes served here by the pound. There are some sides to be had but these are a mere formality.

Except for my father-in-law I have never heard anyone complain about Rudy's anywhere! The staff here in Tyler is really cool and give great service! They even give really accurate tips on what I want to eat! I love going there.

Supposed to be Rated #1, but I give it a lot less. Order at counter and several employees, but no organization. Insisted salad (pre-paclaged) in side case but finally convinced them the salad I wanted was not there. Nothing special about the BBQ.

Let me just say I've had better Rudys. I've ate at several other locations but this one was disappointing. The meat was overcooked , dry and flavorless. The sides were okay. Just not what I expected , I would think the meat would be cooked pretty consistent but not.

My husband and I have heard of Rudy's different times and passed several in our travels. We decided it was time to try their food. They don't serve by the plate, the food was very good. The meat was very tender and melted in your mouth. My husband had the three bean salad. I had the potato salad and cole... More
