Good food

Interesting place to stop and eat. Food was good. You sit at long tables after ordering and picking up your food. Nice bar-b-q sauces. Would stop again.

Even though it is a chain, the food here is wonderful and consistent. This Rudy's has great service and very good BBQ. Great for eat in or carry out!

We were unfamiliar with the process for getting our meal, but those around us were very helpful and the servers gave us samples of all the choices. The moist brisket was very good and my husband's pork ribs were juicy. The creamed corn was just like my southern aunt used to make!

Open at 7:00 AM, close at 10:00 PM. Great BBQ, I drive out of my way to eat there. The brisket comes as either dry or moist. I prefer the latter. Ribs, have not tried.

Love the BBQ at Rudy's. I had pulled pork and it was perfect. They were out of their new potatoes which was disappointing. They substituted a baked potato but it's just not the same. Also get their cream corn, delish!

Rudy's was clean, with a country store atmosphere. Mesquite smoke scents the air when you walk in...yum! Has walk up/help yourself service. We were offered generous samples of the smoked turkey and lean brisket before ordering. My husband and I tried the moist brisket and jalapeño sausage. Brisket had a deep smoke ring with a thick bark, which I love.... More

Stopped in on our way through Amarillo as we couldn't drive through Texas without some barbeque! Lovely woman at the front explained the menu to us and told us to ask for some samples. We had beef brisket and smoked turkey, along with baked beans and coleslaw and a complimentary creamed corn that had been boxed up by mistake. My... More
