Been here on just about every ABQ visit and have always enjoyed the food. We ordered a variety this time. The chicken was quite good but the ribs were dry and a little tough. Maybe they'd been in the smoker too long. On the other hand the moist brisket is fantastic. Next time I think we'll just order a few... More

The brisket is by far my favorite thing on the menu! It is awesome. Of course all your traditional meat choices exist are very good as well. The sides are also worth checking out, from creamed corn through their cobbler of the day all of them are delicious!

I live in Denver, and every time I am in Albuquerque, I stop at Rudy's! INCREDIBLE! All the meat's are tasty and tender. The atmosphere is on picnic tables with checkered table clothes! All the sides are great! I highly recommend a trip to Rudy's!

This place was hopping! I knew we had made a good decision when we couldn't find an open spot in the parking lot. The line inside was super long, but the staff was efficient and there was more than sufficient seating. The star of the meal was the moist brisket. The banana pudding was better than most that I've had.... More

Although it appeared rather deserted at barely 9pm next to the packed BBQ joint next door, we opted for Blake's because we though it would be quicker and we could get back on the road. The inside of the restaurant has an eerie iridescent quality due to the fluorescent lights but appeared clean. The staff, soft spoken and somewhat withdrawn... More

We had dinner in this BBQ during August 2014. Great brisket (very very lean), great chicken, great turkey and great sausages. Very good baked potatoes and cole slaw! Enjoy!!

There aren't many places here in Albuquerque for good BBQ, and Rudy's is at the top of the list. The food is great, the service is fast and the atmosphere reminds me of the BBQ's joints I use to visit in Dallas.

We stopped her for dinner. The brisket were one of the best ones we have tasted. (enough to erase the horrible brisket we tried in Manitou Springs, Colorado -so bad, we wanted to take our Texas flag back). The food is wonderful...and 3 pounds of brisket was enough for a family of seven. Love it.

I LOVED this place. Big inside with loads of seating at long tables. Very casual so a place to grab dinner rather than a night out. I had 1lb of moist beef brisket which was seasoned and charred on the outside and moist, juicy and soft on the inside and nice smoky taste. The table sauce was great too. Busy... More
