“There's a reason why they won the Malcom Baldridge award for customer service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

This Rudy's is one of the best in the Rudy's chain...except for this unit is own and operated by K&N management. They are not a corporate store....so much better than that!

First lets start with the outside, the parking lots and common areas are clean and well manicured. When you enter in the door the front area employees greet you and welcome you in. When ordering the process is fast and seamless. Your order comes out quickly and fresh. The sweet tea is mm mm good! The brisket is 2nd to none. But don't forget the breakfast tacos. This place runs like a fine tuned sports car...the reason is the manager - Jerry and his staff of dedicated, hard working employees...ill be back!

“Good Solid Meat - Chocolate Pudding Is Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Always solid smoked meats at this Rudys. Great selection and really liked the addition of prime rib. Ribs and briskets are great. Its fun to eat in on the picnic tables but also very easy to take out. I grab several meals when Im in the area for business to take to clients. TRY THE PUDDING. Just dont find pudding anywhere anymore. Not the biggest fan of their sides - maybe because I like the meats so much.

“Mucho Negro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We've eaten here pretty much every Sunday for years. Rudy's has great extra lean brisket (you used to order "mucho negro" but now you have to say "outside cut" because of some PC crap), good beans, nice cashiers w/ a lot of energy. Always bring your trophy cup for a dollar refill; it's probably saved us $200 over the years. They hit peak capacity at 1pm on Sunday, so avoid that time, so you don't have to stand in line like cattle for 20 minutes.

“always good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

it's consistent, it's good, it's Bar-B-Q and you can fill your car up while you are there too. If you need a car wash DEFINITELY use the one on site. The water is softened so it doesn't leave hard water spots.
