We had dinner with friends and found this place to be a great place to gather and enjoy some wonderful bbq! Great selection of sides, local beverages and a relaxed atmosphere. And the Brisket was some of the best I've ever had! We loved it!!!

This is consistently good barbeque - not great, but good. The restaurant is clean, the restrooms are clean - all things good to know if you're travelling and spot one of these. The creamed corn is good, but very caloric. The slice turkey is good,...More

I had the stuffed potato with Turkey and Brisket, but you really can't go wrong, It's all good. The smoked meats are juicy and delicious! The creamed corn and potato salad are great too.....Everything we had was great!

I thought the food here was fresh and very tasty. I'm glad I stopped here for lunch! It was a pleasant surprise. I was able to choose several types of meat in the amount I wanted. I would certainly stop here again!

I'm part of a BBQ eating club and I've tried BBQ from all over the country. Rudy's is one of my favorites. I have to admit that I have eaten better, more flavorful BBQ elsewhere, but Rudy's has a few things that make it worth...More

First let's talk about the huge, smoked potato with a flavorful, smokey taste in every bite. Then they add some sour cream, butter and cheese. Not an overwhelming amount because that would mute the flavor of the potato. You can enjoy it just like that...More

Love Rudy's for Texas style BBQ. We usually eat family style and get several sides to go with the moist brisket. The cream corn is out of this world. They make it with ice cream. Sounds funky, but its a winner.

Great brisket. It is quite homey and folksy. You just eat on paper on your picnic table after queing up cafeteria style. But the food is plentiful and the bbq is very good.

Usually our bbq is pretty good, this most recent visit was just ok. Brisket flavor was good but it was very tough. Sausage was good. Potato salad was fine but not as good as usual either.
