I went here and had a perfectly acceptable BBQ meal for a reasonable price. The only thing lacking was any real atmosphere. It was decorated like a Six Flags park version of a mass-reproduceable version of a BBQ smokehouse. It was like a 1950's movie set, or kid's TV show stage version of a BBQ restaurant. The staff, while polite,... More

This was our first visit to this particular Rudy's. We found the food to be very good, and the staff friendly.

Delicious fall off the bone pulled pork and brisket. Seat yourself in a rustic down home setting. BBQ sauces on the table to add to the meats yourself and the sauces are terrific. Highly recommend. Low prices and great value! Banana pudding was very good.

I am new to Texas and have wanted to try Rudy's BBQ since I had stopped in for fuel and saw the big barn style eatery and brisket tacos. This is THE BEST brisket I have ever had. You can eat there, take it home, buy it by the pound (8.99lb) to take home, a sandwich, peach cobbler...oh and Rudy's... More

I am from Mississippi and grew up in Memphis, TN so I am very familiar when it comes to the word BAR-BE-QUE! I am often skeptical about differerent places that claim to have good barbeque because alot of times, they don't. Let me tell ya, I ordered a pound of Moist Brisket from Rudy's along with a sausage and almost... More

Had family over at our hotel to swim and have lunch in the courtyard. Ran to Rudy's to pick up BBQ: 2 lbs moist brisket, 1 lb lean brisket, 3 lbs turkey, 1 quart potato salad,& 1 quart coleslaw. Apparently you get 1 jar of sauce and 1 loaf of bread free with this much food. It's a good thing... More

Rudy's BBQ has wonderful tasty sauce and a great flavor. Their side potato salad, coleslaw and beans are served hot and generously. The meats are cooked to a perfect temperature -- not so hot you burn your mouth -- but very hot when it is served. The sodas don't taste watered-down like a lot of other restaurants seem to be,...
