Brisket

Been looking for tempting brisket in Texas since we got to Abilene but didn't find it until El Paso. So so good. We each got a 1/2# of lean brisket and shared the sides. The pinto beans had a little bite that was just right, the 3 bean salad was crisp and green beans sure seemed fresh and then... read more

This is where we come when we crave bbq and Rudys never disappoints! We had the brisket, baby back ribs and our son had the jalepeno sausage. We had their green chili stew,bbq beans and corn on the cob for our sides. Great atmosphere and service. If you get a chance ask for their butter to use for your slice... More

My wife and I visited in March of 2015 while we were in El Paso a couple of days for business. We're big fans of BBQ and it isn't always easy to find on the East coast, so we knew we wanted to take advantage of being in Texas. She had the brisket, while I had the turkey and the... More

Maybe I just got a bad serving. I asked for moist but got dry and grainy. I have always enjoyed Rudy's. The restaurant was clean and pleasant. I'll be back.

Great food, I take the family about twice a month, I always order two moist brisket sandwiches or 1/2 pound of moist brisket. The corn is excellent we order it every time we go, some times we order beans or the coleslaw you wont go wrong. The pork, turkey or chicken sandwiches are also good choices, let me tell you...

I have been to many Rudys all over the south. This is by far the best chain of BBQ par none. The brisket is always tender with beautiful smoke rings and plenty of bark. I get it lean as possible and never forget the banana pudding. The sissy sauce rocks so much I always grab a bottle to take home... More
