“Really good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

I really wish Rudy's would have Family To Go Packs instead of ordering everything by the pound. It is expensive. We ordered some chicken, potato salad, brisket, sausage and ribs. It was $65.00. Next time I will just dine in for lunch and get the family dinner elsewhere. The cashier was really sweet and helpful.

“Great BBQ & fun relaxing atmosphere !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Casual dinner experience. Order at counter, grab silverware and paper placemat on your way to table with food in hand. Ordered 1/2 lb moist brisket and sausage both EXCELLENT!!, others in our party ordered 1/2 lb baby back ribs, pork sandwiches and jalapeño sausage. Everyone said all was good. BBQ sauce was good and spicy they offer milder sauce for those that don't like spice. Great place for large and small parties.

“A Chain that always delivers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Rudy's is a Texas based chain, but don't let that keep ya from coming here. The BBQ is competition quality with nice smoke rings on the beef brisket with a tenderness that a pit master would envy. Based in a gas station as its signature store front that place inside is inviting and open. They have two sauces, regular and sissy. I like both. They have very good sides and the sweet tea is fantastic. Go To Rudy's wherever your at in Texas, you'll enjoy it!

“BBQ Disappointment ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Ordered their pork ribs which were undercooked to the point of having some raw pieces. I noticed that their bbq sauce was sitting in the window in the sun. I looked at the bbq sauce label and it was filled with trans fat - noxious.
