I always enjoy visiting with him when we get our meal. He does a great job at manager. You order for one and you get enough to feed at... read more

It was an experience for sure. We were unfamiliar with how it all worked so we just got in line. You have to pick up your cole slaw or potato salad in the cooler the you go to the next open cashier to order. We had a pulled pork sandwich that was stuffed with meat which was simmered in sauce....

Well as many of you know that I am not big on BBQ chains but Rudy"s is the exception to the rule. The places are always great and the BBQ is awesome. I will always stop here when I need some delicious BBQ and I am close by.

If you want great BBQ and want to pop in and out this is your place. Pulled pork sandwich was great. This facility uses Oak and you soon taste they have perfected their craft. Fast food with high quality. Don't expect a dining experience. You pick your sides and selection through a line then your own your own to dive... More

If you're looking for Texas-style barbeque in Albuquerque, this is the place. It gets busy so if you're out for dinner on Friday or Saturday night, get there early or be ready to queue up. Just like the commercials I love hearing someone yell "Next In Line." I usually pull out a root beer from the ice cold cooler and... More

Not outstanding, but you can always get a good meal here. Wish they had hotter BBQ sauce. You sit on long picnic tables inside Never trouble finding seats. Good value.

Simple old fashioned joint. Country music. Prepacked potato salad and coleslaw. All the usual barbecued items. Had the moist brisket and the pulled pork and both were outstanding. Service correct.

I have a Rudy's where I live but always go to another place called Spring Creek instead. This was right across from where I was staying so I went here for lunch. The food was very good! I will definitely be going to the one back home. Super busy for lunch.

I was passing through Albuquerque and picked a random exit to stop and grab some food. I picked Rudy's thanks to the reviews on this site and was pleased that I did. Easy, quick, reasonably priced and delicious. You order at the counter and then sit at one of any of the long tables. No frills. Just good food.
