Great Texan BBQ Brisket!

This place offers great Brisket, ask for chopped Bbq brisket and try their side salads. 2 options in town makes it easy to find one

We have had Rudy's two times and their BBQ, especially the brisket, is consistently delicious. I am not a fan of cole slaw but theirs is quite good. The locaiton we visit is along I-10 on the west side of El Paso, so if you are traveling through it is a perfect pit stop for a meal and you can... More

The turkey was a little dry last visit. However, everytime I come here the Brisket is great. I like Rudy's original bbq sauce too. So save yourself any disapointment, skip the other... More

The pulled pork was way to greasy and had an off taste. The brisket was very good which saved the dining experience from being a... More

Hosted a business dinner. The menu allows for family style selection of meats and sides. Making it easy for business guest to come and go. Each of the meats was moist and had that signature smoked note. We had short ribs, brisket moist, sausage and pulled pork. The moist selection of brisket is lean and on the dry side. Value... More

We tried the moist brisket and two pieces that we paid for we're all fat. The turkey was okay. We were not go there again. Waste of money.
