Rudy's has Texas barbecue down. Their brisket is excellent, and the turkey and ribs and sausage are good, too. Our entire family likes all their sides and their sauce, which has a nice peppery kick to it. Add in employees who know what their doing...More

Delicious. Place is loud, bbq served on paper. Lots of beers, various cold soda in bottles. Sides include beans, Cole slaw, potato salad, bread. Have been here many times & always return. The sauce is great--sweet & spicy.

We got this place from TripAdvisor and boy, those reviews are correct. Very good place to have a BBQ. Ask for samplers if this is your first time there. And prepare to enjoy a lot of food. Really recommend.

I'm a big fan of the brisket at Rudy's. It's always good and you can order it moist or lean. I personally prefer what they refer to as the Cutters Edge which has bark on it. Delicious!

Good barbecue and quickie breakfast tacos. Very relaxed and fun atmosphere. Service at the take out counter was a little inattentive.
