This place is fantastic, but the meats are very chewy and the ribs are very fatty. I recommend the baked potato. That was the highlight of my meal

Food was really good and the service was nice. Awesome breakfast burritos the next morning. Hard to find parking but that is to be expected at a good BBQ place.

Never make it to Albuquerque w/o at least one stop here. I had the pulled pork sandwich with beans, cole slaw and a beer. Casual atmosphere and friendly folks behind the counters.

I had a half rack of baby back pork ribs with sides of coleslaw and beans. The sides were good, but those ribs were divine. They were smoky, with a bit of a roasted crust and an amazing, rich flavor. The sauce is good, but the ribs are amazing. This place tends to have quite a line, but it moves... More

When we entered the restaurant it was packed. Instead of giving your order to a server, you walk through a line but the line goes very quickly because there are so many registers to take your order. Once you give your order, you receive it immediately. The ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender and you have a choice of spice hot BBQ... More

Just doing an overnight on road trip and this was recommended by hotel. The BBQ meats they have (ribs, brisket, chicken amongst others) was excellent. Cooked perfectly and very tender. 5-star

For those not familiar with Rudy’s, it is a Texas barbeque chain in a deliberately rustic and casual atmosphere. You stand in line to order and seat yourself; the indoor seating is on long picnic tables, the ‘outdoor’ seating is actually a screened in porch with a fire pit for use in the winter. They have a pretty extensive menu... More

Rudy's was recommended by the male desk clerk at the Comfort Inn. He is a foody, and the recommendation was spot on. The pulled pork was superior to any available in Memphis TN. The potato salad was French, as good as the home made potato salad my chef husband makes The cole slaw was lightly dressed, and excellent. I highly... More
