“Not fancy just tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Great pulled pork. Other meats looked good too. Beer and wine available. Long tables, seat yourself after ordering at the counter. Very casual. Classic BBQ place. Very friendly staff.

“This is a different place that you have to check out at least once.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Ok - if this is your first time, when you arrive it's best if you just stand there for a second and take everything in. You have walked into a different world and you are about to be baptized by meat! Once you get your bearings get in line and wait for the "Next in line" yell coming from one of the servers/cashiers who will help you decide, but also are trying the get the line down, so it's best to try some BBQ pork or go for the brisket and go from there. It's also a great place to people watch. Some folks by a bunch of meat AND a loaf and bread to go with it. Anything's possible.

“Great BBQ - BEST in New Mexico”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I'm not so hip on open table seating, but the BBQ more than makes up for it. This place has got the BEST BBQ in New Mexico. Word.

“Love it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We have Rudy's regularly through work and personally. I recently found and fell in love with the pulled pork, which I think is amazing, followed only by their potato salad. We really do enjoy the meal, and the bare bones BBQ experience is good too. It's okay to eat the sissy sauce. :)
