I never had eaten BBQ before and we knew this place from tripadviser. The environment is a kind of country, food was great. They gave us some samples to tryout as we are the first time there. We ordered chipped and some bread to make sandwitch and cole slaw, they were just awesome. They have really unique drinks too. They... More

Friends had been raving about this place so I was rather excited to visit! The place is not highbrow, it's attached to a gas station and there are plastic tables behind it where you sit, with you tasked to clean your own tables. You go up to the BBQ and that's where the best bit is, you can order varied... More

The casual atmosphere and wonderful BBQ sauce. We give this as Christmas gifts every year to our Family and Business Associated around the country.

If you are looking for good bbq this is it. It's nothing fancy, it's actually attached to a gas station! Your tray is a plastic crate that bottles of pop come in. The cream corn is outstanding, a must have and so is the potatoe salad. I had the brisket and my husband had the chopped bbq which is a... More

Other than the line out the door, it was great. Ribs, sausage, potato salad, and especially the creamed corn were excellent.

Excellent value. The sauce is great and you can buy some to take home. If your headed to the hill country a... More

I traveled the entire United States of America and Canada working at medical facilities and I have spent allot of time in every state and province living out of my suitcase so believe me when I say that the Original Rudys has the best BBQ in the US and Canada. I have many favorites all over the place and some... More

Bad service, hot beer, out of ribs- they'll be back in 10 minutes, long lines....we do not get the fuss. San Antonio is not such a great bbq town but this is definitely NOT the place to go....skip it!

Rudy's, on Highway 151 or Interstate 10, are THE best places for Texas BBQ. I grew up in Texas and besides Mexican food, I know Texas BBQ and Rudy's is the BEST. Brisket, sausage it's all good. Peach cobbler and cream corn are the best side dishes. Enjoy!!!

My sister brought us here to try, otherwise I'm not at all confident we would have considered it! Seeing a gas station and a open air counter/restaurant was surprising. Food was really good, my husband and I shared the moist BBQ meat, really excellent. The sides were good too.
