Good Bbq

Fun place for lunch or dinner. No fine dining! Just plain good food. There is one in Colorado Springs too.

Found this on a review. I must tell you I love local places. I love dives. I love BBQ. I love this place. I travel all over the USA and look forward to local (I know this is a small chain) places and could not be happier I found this particular place. The old screen door entrance behind the gas... More

Rudys BBQ is a SA must! Great BBQ in a cool/casual environment. Went to this "original" one which is behind the gas station, but it is legit! Amazing BBQ, great sides, they even give you a loaf of bread with your meal. Everytime I come to SA I make a stop here for sure!

We always try and stop if there is a Rudy's on the route we are taking. Its just the best BBQ you can find, and I love the atmosphere in those little shops/ diners too. We had moist brisket (always our favorite) and a peach cobbler, and ice cream. Staff was very chatty!

You must get the creamed corn. Smoked turkey, lean brisket and ribs are all good. Skp sausage greasy. Decent BBQ and a charming location.

Low key environment with very casual dress. Family style seating. Great selection of adult beverages. Great choice for the kids as well. Order in half pound units. Super selection of regular barbecue sides and some special ones as well. Had the jalapeno sausage, tasty with ideal heat. Also the moist brisket was amazing. Fork tender, good seasoning and nice balance... More

I'm a Texan that has moved out of state. I miss good Texas BBQ the most. Well, let's be honest, good Texas Mexican food, too. ;-) Whenever I come back, I force whoever I'm with to take me to Rudy's. There's just no place like it. The food is amazing!! The meat is perfectly smoked. I always get the brisket...because... More

I'd heard a lot about Rudy's from people when I told them I was going to Texas. I gotta say, I was not impressed. The people were super friendly and the service was good, but the food was nothing special. My husband got the barbecue mix and I got the turkey. Both were good, but not outstanding. The sides were...

We were in San Antonio and the day before we left we heard about Rudy's. Well, on our way to the airport we had to make a stop. Glad we did, because they had wonderful barbecue. If you go, have to get the cream corn! Have to mention that everybody that works there were very friendly!
