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,...

Came here over spring break with my family. Bbq was good and the atmosphere fun! The brisket was my favorite. Can't wait to eat here again.

Had Sliced brisket (moist) and pulled pork, potato salad, beans and sweet tea. The Sliced Brisket (moist) is some of the best I have had. Love this place. Also the veteran's discount is wonderful, not only a great meal but they save me money. My wife, a brisket bigot, said lets come here more often, this is great food. The... More

Rudy's is the number one restaurant I messed while I was not living in Texas. By far the best barbecue ever. I always get the delouse smoked turkey and my boyfriend always gets the moist brisket. The corn is always awesome too.

Went to Rudy's after a long day at the spa. Didn't feel like cooking so I was looking forward to a stuffed baked potato. I'm usually satisfied but this evening's potato salad (I bought 2 of them) looked, felt, and tasted as if it was made 5 evenings ago and the beef BRICK was equally OLD!! I am thoroughly disappointed,... More

Rudy's is an interesting place and has great Texas barbecue (not that wimpy pulled pork stuff from back east). All of their meats that I've tried have been really good, but my favorite is the big baked potato stuffed with "Rudy's chop" (chopped brisket mixed with their sauce). Yum! Not exactly a place you want to take your date, but... More

on vacation from Maryland, our hunt for real Texas food was satisfied when we found this gem of a restaurant. When we entered we had that 'what do we do now look on our faces' when a man behind the counter said "never been here before, let me help you" he let us sample lots of food and then we... More

Greeted by a friendly and helpful team behind the counter. Provided delicious samples as first timers. The meat was juicy, bbq sauces delish, soup yummiest. Fun and surprising space. Inexpensive but rich in character. Loved it!

Great bbq. Food tastes really really good would be nice if prices were just a little lower Friendly staff, and you can sample some items if you're interested before purchasing which is nice. I'd recommend rudy's
