Great Spot For A Quick Fix

Rudy's is a place to grab a quick bite, have a casual meal or pick up take out. We've sampled the brisket, the turkey, the chicken, the barbecue, the potato salad, the baked beans, the creamed corn and the peach cobbler. All are very tasty. Choose your drink, order at the counter and pick up... read more

You can't come to San Antonio and not visit Rudy's! This place is hands down the best barbecue I've ever had. I look forward to visiting the area to stop by. I'm missing their baked beans and beef brisket right now ☺️

BBQ Beef brisket, creme corn, potato salad and cole slaw were excellent. Your food is served in styrofoam containers and paper trays. You sit at picnic tables. Fun and quirky.

Amazing brisket, incredible cream corn. I dream of the day I go back to Texas to have some more of that cream corn. And the Pickles. And everything else.

This is how BBQ is meant to be seen, smelled and eaten! Nothing fancy here, this is a true BBQ joint where you come to eat, and eat too much. Try the creamed corn, it is delicious! Ribs are not fall off the bone in true BBQ fashion. The brisket is oak smoked, but not lathered in sauce or flavor,... More

Really courteous employees offering samples and getting order as well as food very quickly. The corn, cobbler, and sausage were spot on. However the brisket was overdone falling apart and somewhat dry.

I have been here many times. Everything is really good, except for the pork ribs. Not cooked long enough, fighting to get the meat off the bone. The cream corn is to die for.

If you are close by this is decent BBQ. The meat was cooked well but the sauce was average. The staff was friendly but the place was a little dirty. Didn't end my quest for really good BBQ in San Antonio.

We have been going here off and on forever. We go when we just want excellent and simple BBQ. Whether it is ribs, brisket, sausage or some combination of these, I will leave happy and full. The sides are not special, but the cream corn is above average. Skip the white bread, love the outdoor eating off of waxed paper.
