Description: Our pits are 100% wood fired with oak, a slower burning wood than the mesquite used by others. Along with time and oak, we cook with a dry spice that ensures each plate of Rudy's Bar-B-Q is perfectly ready for you. Apply some of our famous "Sause" and dinner is served.

What a nice surprise finding Rudy's in Chandler, AZ. Real BBQ and the service is 5 star where they cut and weigh your meat right before your eyes! Great meat and BBQ sauce with all the fixins! Great value as well and wide variety of beverages. A do not miss for lunch with friends or casual business.

“Good barbecue - ok ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Just had some great barbecue at Rudy's. The layout reminded me of eating at a park on picnic benches and it was very crowded. Other than the decor seemed like an old fashioned barn on a farm. The food, however, is fantastic. I had baby back ribs and beef brisket. My friend had chicken and sausage links -- yummy. the chicken was a full half chicken -- grilled moist and tender. The sides are equally good -- potatato salad, beans, coleslaw and corn. I thought someone would have to cart me out of the place in a wheel barrel back to our car as I was going to be stuffed from all the great tasting food.

The portions are a nice size and the prices are pretty reasonable. For dessert we both had peach cobbler which was also extremely tasty. Ahh, I will definitely be back when I am in Arizona again. I highly recommend any one who likes good barbecue -- grilled over charcoal and smells wonderfully smoky and very delicious barbecue sauce.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The best BBQ I have ever had by far. I had 1/2 bbq chicken and it was wonderful. They also have these great breakfast "tacos" that are more like breakfast burritos but they're also super yummy. It's not a fancy place but you can bring the whole family and have a yummy meal. The chicken just fell apart and was so juicy and tasty.

“A place you know away from home.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Rudy's is a BBQ place we like at home in Albuquerque, so when we saw one a block from our hotel we knew we would eat there a least once. And when we did we found the same quality we experience in Albuquerque plus we didn't have to stare at the menu we knew what we wanted before we went in. Don't forget to try both versions of the sauce, one will fit your taste. My favorite the Brown Cow taco.
