Outstanding BBQ and filled up my gas tank!

We stopped at Rudy's passing through El Paso (passing through El Paso is a good thing). Pleasantly surprised at the quality of Ruby's food. We had never been there before so they gave us samples of their brisket and turkey. Both were fantastic. We ended up with a pound of the brisket. They... read more

In for an early lunch Monday 8/10. Have only been in the original Rudy's in Leon Springs previously. Both are set up the same no no confusion. I liked it, brisket, cole slaw and sweet tea were all good. Did like they sold me a chunk of cheese, I can't get that in Leon Springs. Looks like they offer breakfast... More

Rudy's is a different atmosphere, they give you samples of the meat they are serving, and you can watch it being carved right there. The meat is tender and tasty, and is served picnic/casual style. The sides were excellent and there was a lot of food for the price. There is multiple sauces and other condiments at a table, the... More

If you don't mind spending a few extra dollars and eating in a very relaxed atmosphere (picnic tables), this is the place for you. The meats are truly outstanding!

Good food. Reliable and homey. Rudy's is always a good bet. I travel to El Paso frequently on business and stay nearby. I've tried about everything on the menu. It's all good, if not outstanding. Skip the "Sissy Sauce" and go for the spicy BBQ sauce.

Was suggested this joint by a friend who's been here. I thanked him after! If it's your first time there ordering can be confusing but they do offer free samples. The meat is served deli style which was really unique. The brisket was smoky and delectable. I also had the smoked turkey and enjoyed that too. My buddies had the... More

So I usually stay away from chain BBQ establishments but Rudy's is one that I will go visit often for lunch. They make all the BBQ favorites Brisket, Sausage, Pulled Pork, Chicken and Turkey. They have great sides to compliment the BBQ and the pecan pie is perfect for after lunch This is a Great place to get your BBQ... More
