Rudy's has great barbecue and some delicious sauces. They can accommodate large groups at their picnic table style seating. The service is fast and friendly. A favorite place of mine to eat lunch when I lived in El Paso.

This is a great place to accommodate a large family to celebrate special occasions. The barbecue is delicious . We chose the brisket sandwich which has a generous helping of meat. The potato salad is so good. The extra topping bar is great for those who want to add items to their meals. Serving trays are unique and the picnic... More

We are frequent flyers of this establishment. On Subday mornings we stop in for breakfast burritos and a refill of sweet tea. The cost for two of us is under 10 dollars. Once a week we stop in for a quick dinner. Prices are reasonable or what I consider cheap for the quality of food. I have tried almost everything... More

Was so tasty and they have very good prices for the food that you get, I enjoyed their "sissy sauce" it was just the right amount of spiciness also it is very laid back and a nice place to stop for lunch if you are in the area!

Our family often goes to this place for a laid back meal. It is always so enjoyable to eat barbecue in this atmosphere! You order per lbs whatever you want as your meat and they give you plenty of slice bread with it. They also have delicious sides in different size containers. The tables are like picnic tables - tablecloth... More

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
