Authentic Texas Barbecue at its best - slow cooked on-site! Nothing fancy about this place - just plain on chairs & tables, country-store atmosphere, and stand-in-line to order your food; but any wait is short and well worth it! My wife and I tried the brisket and baby-back ribs - both great. Do not forget the creamed corn - it... More

Simple, I went for Rudy's Smoked Turkey and Creamed Corn, nothing else. Nothing else will do once you have had those two items off their menu. Excellent, I was not disappointed at all. I did dine in at 5 :10 pm so did beat the rush. The atmosphere is Texas BBQ. Soda crates with butcher paper liners are the food... More

I've eaten at Rudy's a few times before, and came away underwhelmed. I ate there last night and I got blown away. I don't remember if they had the "Chopped" menu option when I ate here before (Chopped is a chopped up medley of brisket, turkey and pork in their famous bbq sauce), but oh MAN it rocked my world....

It was surprisingly quiet for a restaurant. The food was great! It was very clean. The staff were friendly offering samples of their cream style corn.

Typical barbecue dive, attached to a gas station. When I drove up, I was excited. I was confused about which door to use, and mistakenly went into the convenience store first because there are tables there, but you order on the side with the picnic tables (which are all open-air). When I walked in, there wasn't much of a wait... More

We visited after a full day of fun at Sea World. We were super hungry and their bbq hit the spot. One of our favorite bbq spots. We make it a point when traveling to go to the best barbecue joints in the area. This is it! Fun atmosphere and decor. Great for hungry families after walking all day at... More

This was our first experience of Texas BBQ and what an experience, rustic, authentic, great tasting all round. In the UK we get used to ordering a burger, here you order your cooked meat by the pound. We had Turkey, Brisket, Ribs and Sausage all was excellent, as were the sides especially the creamed corn that was like nothing I've... More

I think I could live off their cream corn, peach cobbler, smoked turkey breast and their sausage. WOW! On this trip, my wife and I took my mother in law for her first time and we are so much we probably should have napped before going home. It was VERY good and worth the trip.

Great, classic, slow-smoked Texas barbecue. Quality is consistently good; Turkey is exceptionally moist; Sauce is outstanding; however, beware... It is very peppery. Sides are very good... Cream corn is excellent but kind of pricey; Staff is extremely polite and helpful. Military discount and their commitment to donate to the military is legendary and quite commendable. Great food, friendly people, clean,... More
