Well, if you like barbecue and don't care about eating cafeteria style, this might be a decent place to try out but don't look for much else than the food. You can pick up your sides and a tray, then go through the cafeteria line, telling your servers exactly what you'd like. The nice part is that you can construct... More

Great barbecue and good food. Friendly service. They do have gluten free options and menu that is somewhat limited. Great for out of town people.

Rustic! and for me very different. Just order your meat, cooked how you like and tuck in. Not by any means fine dining but loads of fun and tasty. Ribs were wonderful - just don't wear silk!

My wife, father in law and I were excited to return to a Rudy's this year on our road trip as a result of an excellent experience at Rudy's in El Paso, Texas last year. That location and this place have absolutely nothing in common, and it is baffling. Plain and simple, this was a downright awful dining experience. The... More

Husband loves their ribs and brisket and I love their chicken and sausage. This time we tried the pulled pork and weren't impressed because it was so greasy. Love their cream corn and potato salad. Not too crazy about their beans. The folks behind the counter are so friendly and accommodating. Ordered so much food, we took 1/2 home and... More

We are visiting and decided to go to Rudy's for dinner. I've been to the one in Colorado Springs before and liked the atmosphere but this one wasn't the same. Didn't like the big long tables with folding chairs lined up in the restaurant as you came in. Didn't look inviting at all and didn't really want to sit with... More

I thought brisket was great but NO! I love Rudy's BBQ turkey! I also love Rudy's cream corm and buttered potatoes. The turkey is so tender you don't need a knife and it melts in your mouth. A great way to feed friends!
