Rudy's offers some of the best bbq in the Colorado Springs area in a fun, casual setting. Don't forget to order some peach cobbler and/or banana pudding, too!

Great Food and Gas (for your car that is). It is a buffet line with fresh BBQ chicken, brisket, and pull pork. The potato salad and beans add to the unique meal that reminds you of Texas. The Location is at the foot of Pikes Peak on Highway 24 and you can get a great meal before you hit Colorado... More

Got into Colo. Springs/Manitou Springs late. Everyone was closed except Rudys. Brisket was good. Sausage was good. Was not crazy about the potato salad as others have raved about.

I believe this is one of the best in Colorado Springs. Some prefer Bird Dog BBQ, Colorado Smokehouse is good, Dickeys....ehhh. Always a good burnt end sandwhich and sausage. They open early for breakfast BBQ. Always a must stop, especially if you are from Texas

The food never disappoints, whether it's the many times I've eaten at their Texas locations, or this location in Colorado Springs! The staff is beyond friendly, food comes to you super fast in their quick lines, the condiment bar is always clean and well-stocked, and of course THE FOOD! I can't say I've ever had their chicken, but their lean... More

Average bbq. Nothing incredible. Rudy's is inconveniently located for most of the city. Zero ambiance. It's a gas station restaurant with picnic tables. Guests eat off of paper on the table. The food was unimpressive. The smoked brisket was overly smoky. I know how dumb that sounds, but all you actually taste is the smoke and not so much the... More

My husband took me there one Saturday after walking in manitou springs - he'd been once before. I was not impressed - at all. It's expensive for what you get and I've had much better pulled pork. Everything is ala carte - thus making it more expensive than if you'd gone somewhere else. I felt hurried to decide what I... More

This is the best place in town by far for quality BBQ, The brisket is my favorite and the coleslaw is good too. The sweet tea isn't very sweet though.

Home style bbq with great choice of sauces & sides. Hubby had the brisket and it was very tender. Very cool place to eat with indoor and outdoor seating. If it's your first time there, you can sample a choice of meat. We tried the turkey and just may have to return to have a full portion.
