“Rudy's - Best of the chains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Being a Texan, I consider myself a barbeque connoisseur. Of course, so does every Texan on the planet. Rudy's: How they manage to turn out consistant high quality 'Q' at every location is amazing. Melt in your mouth brisket & really good sides. The 'next in line' format is very cool. The counter people are the friendliest in the State. They have fun, so you have fun. Perfect atmosphere for the great groceries they sell. I only have 1 little bitty issue: the sausage. Earl Campbell makes great products, but for a truly great barbeque experience, you need Elgin sausage on the menu. As a chain outfit, the bottom line is I LOVE RUDY's!

“Not our style”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Coming from VA, we were looking for a new BBQ place. The meat was ok but we were looking for a good BBQ sandwich on a bun. I can't get used to white bread with BBQ.

“Great Food and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I really like the food at Rudy's. The lean brisket is good and the chicken. I wish the sides were better but the meat is great. The store is clean and easy to get in and out of . The prices are reasonable. This is definitely worth a try if you are in the area.

“First stop when I'm in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We LOVE this place.! The BBQ is the best ever. The employees are super friendly, even during the busiest times, the seating area is always clean, and the prices are awesome in comparison to the portion size. I live the fact that they always throw in tons of bread with our order. I always brag about Rudy's !
