We stayed at a near by hotel while passing through El Paso. Saw Rudy's and went to eat there. Always good. We got chopped beef and pulled pork. They give you all the bread you want so we made sandwiches. They let us bring in our own water and chips so great meal at a great price. This is a... More

This place is all about ribs, and they know how to do it right. Veggies, just forget it, but indulge in the best ribs, brisket, bar-b-q... and it's fantastic. Sorry Mom... "I didn't eat my vegetables"! (not sure if there were any). Oh... great baked beans too. It's a must do place if in the area.

Like noted in earlier reviews by others, the food was expensive. Normal lunch with one meat and two sides and drink will be about $12.00. I got the "moist" brisket. It was a tough cut of meat. Not horrible, but tough. The selection was definitely moist, but still a little tough. I will go back but get a different cut... More

We tried Rudy's at the request of family. It was very expensive to feed 8 people but we got lots of bread. The meat was delicious and cooked well. We like to mix the mouse brisket with the lean to get the perfect balance of juicy an healthy - if BBQ can be called healthy. We also like the Jalapeño... More

First time going here and had no idea what to expect or how the system worked. The staff were so friendly and directed us through the process of walking up to the counter and ordering what you wanted. They also let you taste everything to help you make a better decision. You are able to watch it being sliced up.... More

Old Country store feel with great food! This was very different for me. You order your meat by the pound and sides separate. They are very nice about giving free taste and the food was awesome. I had a great Brisket with beans and bread. They do serve beer as well if you want to wash it down. I recommend... More

I ordered a pound of the smoked ribeye and had to return it to get them to cut some of the gristle off. I ended up tossing about 1/2 of it because there was still a lot of gristle on it even after they removed some. It was okay but too costly for inedible meat. We eat a Rudy's all... More

Excellent food, environment :) You'll love this place if you're into smoked meat and great BBQ. Another plus is that you can also fuel up your car at their gas station for a very reasonable price.

This places was just what I was looking for !! Yummy home style BBQ, to my surprise the creamed corn was so good!! This place is by all means very casual, picnic table style, order thru a line and take your food to tables, sorta self serve, although they do slice the meat behind counter as you watch.I only wish...
