Description: Just north of San Antonio, at the edge of the Texas Hill Country, sits the small community of Leon Springs. Founded in the 1800s by Max Aue, Leon Spring's cityscape changed when Max's son, Rudolph, opened a one-stop gas station, garage, and grocery store. Bar-B-Q was added to the operation in 1989, and Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q has been serving up tasty food ever since. The same original recipes that built Rudy's Leon Springs' reputation are now available throughout the Southwest. 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.

“Great Bar-B-Q”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Rudy's Bar-B-Q is always good. Be prepared to eat some really delicious food. It's not fancy, just really good food.

“Excellent BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

The food at Rudy's BBQ is what makes this place really good. I loved the variety of glass bottle pop in the tubs full of ice. The beef brisket was excellent and the sides were large and tasty. The eating area is a large open space and is a great place to take kids.

“Rustic and over priced!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Somewhat expensive for a place where you order from a counter and serve yourself. Love the tortilla stew, always buy extra and take it home.

“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Some of the best BBQ in town. Only con is the price. A little steep for BBQ. Also the atmosphere is lacking a little imagination.
