Texas BBQ at its best

We never visited Rudy's before. We took the advice of the Hampton Inn front desk person to give it a try. It was a great meal in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Excellent choices and all of them were delicious. We hope we can visit them again.

Its pretty good, a little expensive. The service is pretty basic. If they only lowered the prices to match the quality of the food, it would be a better deal.

In my opinion, one of the best BBQ places in the area. The pulled pork is real good. I like the laid back atmosphere and the people working there have always been friendly.

BBQ and a gas station....It's pretty cheap, it's yummy and it's quick. We ate here twice for lunch on a 4 day work trip. Is it the best BBQ I've ever had? No. But is it damn good for the price? Yep!

Moist brisket sandwich is tasty and needed no sauce. Beans were scrumptious with a little kick. Overall very nice take out dinner to enjoy in the hotel next door after driving all day.

We would always go to the ones in Austin but these have a different owner and when I asked the Manager if they cooked the baby back ribs in a crockpot he got a little upset ( understandably) but I told him the ribs weren't introduced to...

Make visits to Rudy's part of my eating routine. Food is always excellent ... perhaps the best in town. Staff is friendly and helpful. Prices are extremely reasonable . . . especially when you consider the portion sizes.

After a day of boot shopping we asked several locals to recommend a casual place for Texas barbecue and Rudy’s was on everyone’s list. Just of I10 we walked in and the young lady recognized us as non-locals and explained the process. We ordered ribs and beef brisket with Cole slaw, beans and potato salad as sides. We were able...
