Rudy's is one of my favorite 3 BBQ places I frequent. They have mastered the art of serving good BBQ to the masses. I highly recommend the smoked turkey.

The BBQ brisket is out of this world. Not to mention, the "creamed corn", ifresh homade; I've never had any better!

I was in Colorado Springs for a few days and wanted some good bbq. I saw the reviews online and decided to try Rudy's bbq. The restaurant offers a lot of parking around it. The place was packed but the line moved fast. It's a place where you get in line, order, pay, get the food and sit. When it... More

Came here to meet with my cousins who live up north. They come from Texas originally so naturally barbecue was the top of their list. Now the prices are definitely up in the $10+ range but for good reason. Where else would you pick up a rack of ribs and pulled pork plus a side of coleslaw and mac n... More

We have had Rudy's in Austin, Texas many times and found the Colorado Springs restaurant compares favorably with it. The juicy brisket can't be beat.

Ate here twice during our week long visit. The brisket, turkey, and pulled pork were all great and the creamed corn is awesome. Service good, they give samples before you order and are very patient while you decide what you want. Very crowded at lunch. Good prices.

Numerous people told us this is the place for BBQ. Not sure why. It wasn't bad but we were not overjoyed. It is different. You buy the BBQ by weight, plastic dinner ware, etc. Probably great if your a chow hound and are looking for quantity. Probably won't return.

Service is pretty good here-- even with a long line on most weekends, we've never stood longer than about 10-12 min. Food is served on wax paper for meat, or styrofoam cups you pick up while in line. Lots of beverage selections in big iced bins. Seating is very rustic, with wood picnic tables inside and out, sports on tvs... More

This place has decent BBQ, but way over priced for what you get. There are much better places to eat great BBQ that are less then a mile away from this place. Everything is a la cart, and over priced. They prey on visitors because they know they will pay for what they are charging you. If they just lowered... More

Rudy's is amazing - it's this cute little restaurant right off some of the main roads. Nice and easy to get to with ample parking. I've been lucky enough to eat at Rudy's a few times now and every time is amazing. I had their Spicy Chop 2 days ago with Creamed Corn and it was so good after a... More
