We stopped at Rudy's for take out one evening. If you're a meat lover, this is the place for you. They offer chicken, brisket, pork, etc. They have numerous sides available and limited desserts. If you stay to eat, they have long picnic tables, and you eat off a sheet of paper. It's not fancy, but who needs fancy at... More

Excellent service and the servers answers questions without hesitation about gluten free options. They are very aware of how much meat they serve as it costs per half pound. Chicken, beef and turkey were the choices for our dinner and salt potatoes. The face is a 16 oz bottle of sauce for our 6 pounds of meat choices We opted... More

Made me think I was in Texas. Authentic Texas style barbecue served in Texan style. Don't expect personal interaction, don't remember any attempt at service other than getting food to you, but the brisket was good and beautiful day sitting on the patio made it a very pleasant experience. They had a good variety and wish I had been able... More

This place is great - nothing fancy, but food is fantastic. Lots of variety and great taste. Don't expect waiter, etc. Seat yourself, get your food at the counter and enjoy. Take some of the BBQ sauce home!

There will probably be a line out the door when you get here... but that's a GOOD THING! The staff keep you supplied with samples while you wait!! There was probably 15 people out the door when we got there and total we waited in line maybe 30 min. Well worth the wait! Food was very good! Meat is bought... More

To find a little bit of heaven from our Texas home was awesome! Rudy's has THE best BBQ anywhere...whether you like beef, pulled pork or chicken be sure to get an ear of corn to crunch on with it and you'll be glad you did!! Don't pass up Rudy's spicy sauce. The best item is their ribs YUM!

We're not familiar with this type of restaurant in England. We made our selection and, although it was quite different from our usual, it was good food. We enjoyed it.

i love BBQ and hadn't had any on vacation, so I was craving it. We went here on several recommendations, but were all very disappointed. I don't know if it was because it was 9:00 PM and the rest of the town was closed or what, but the staff was pretty impatient, they were out of chicken and the brisket... More

I gave this four stars because it's definitely above average but honestly it's a 3 1/2 star place due to consistency. Living here affords us the opportunity to eat here frequently. It's good food, reasonable prices and underwhelming service (as in you're on your own). The food is usually great but there have been several times when we've stopped to... More

Place is very open, line was long which is always a good sign. Food was great. Wish the portions were a little bit more. They weigh the meat for each order. Had to ask for their rub as none of the table had it bottled. Choice of 3 home made sauces. All in all a very decent place to bring... More
