Meat !!!

Meat and lots of it. I've had better but I've had far worse. The Pork Loin was very dry. The sides are in Styrofoam containers and small.

We stayed at a nearby hotel and the desk clerk recommended this place. We stood in line for about 20 min. Very casual with picnic table dining. Lots of groups here, mostly sports teams. The person who took our order was super, not at all frazzled by the crowd. The barbecue was very tasty. Bottom line - not relaxing dining,... More

I happened upon Rudy's by accident and was overwhelmed by the ambiance and service of this authentic Texas BBQ outlet. They don't have the combination plates or packaged options of so many places they sell smoked meats by the pound. I was overwhelmed and asked the counter agent for some help and they custom cut me some samples of the... More

I got the brisket. Very moist and tasty. Didn't even need sauce on it. I only got one side, creamed corn. It was so so. I wasn't overly thrilled with the seating or eating my food off wax paper. But the meat was good and that's pretty important!

My husband and I loved the smokey flavor so much we went back the next day. The meat is so tasty, you don't need the sauce. We tried the pork ribs, baby back ribs, turkey and beef brisket....all were tender and cooked to perfection. Our server was very friendly too....it was our 1st time in town and he let us... More

If you crave moist or lean brisket, pulled pork or a rack of ribs this is a great place to rely on. The food is served up fast and consistent. It's picnic table style with white bread, brown wax paper for a plate and no frills but the quality of the food does the talking. Be prepared to wait in... More

I went to Rudy's as it was rated the best barbeque in Albuquerque. After I arrived and was ready to order, I found the menu confusing as to the fact that you can not order any type of barbeque plates. You can only order the meats by the half pound. Once I figured out the process for ordering dinner, I... More

Yes, Rudy's BBQ restaurant has a spacious dining room and it has outside picnic tables where large families can have a lot of fun with a picnic like dining experience with some of the best BBQ chicken and brisket in Albuquerque. One stands in a fast moving line where one can take a bottled drink out of a large vat... More
