We stopped in here for lunch on Sunday and was pleasantly surprised to find out that they offer an all you can eat buffet on Sunday! Pulled pork, brisket, chicken and all the sides you can think of! Best bbq we've had in a long time! So, so good! Glad we found this place.

The ribs were some of the best I've had. We all enjoyed our dinner, we had wings, boneless wings, pork sandwich, ribs. The sides were good, greenbeans way to salty

After attending a Sunday buffet, I will be sure to return. The meat was tender and juicy and you need to try the corn hash. During the buffet, certain sides are available for you to grab while others you ask your waiter for. The waiter was amazing! He was a teenage guy who worked hard and never left us hanging.... More

We love Rudy's. The location isn't the best, but the customer service and the food make up for it. Up until about a year ago, I hadn't tried the brisket. Now that I have, it's my favorite. I always get it with their chips and coleslaw. My husband gets the brisket with macaroni. Our toddler also loves the macaroni. We've... More

They have the best pulled pork and smoked turkey sandwiches! I like the coleslaw on my sandwiches! And the homemade chips are the best! Even the iced tea is good..

We love BBQ and when traveling try to visit different places. We stopped here for dinner and it was just ok. I honestly thought the meat was a bit dried out and the corn muffin was just awful. .definately not fresh. On the positive side, the bbq sauce was some of the best and the sweet potato and corn dish... More

Very unhappy with my food and service.. I did not get what I ordered initially, when I politely brought it to the cashier's attention, she wanted to argue.. Another girl got my order pseudo straight.. Still wrong but closer to what I ordered.. I sat down to eat.. Food was barely warm, portion was much smaller that I have received... More

The portions were huge! Even my "starving" husband couldn't finish his 3 meat meal. We both had the brisket & pulled pork. The brisket was fork tender. The rub on both was delicious & the amount of smoke was perfect! The sides were equally as good.

Not sure if their claim of being the best BBQ east of the Mississippi is true or not, since I've never been to the Carolinas for BBQ but Rudy's is very good. Generous portions of meat and a pleasant, not overpowering, smoky taste. We had brisket and pulled pork; both tender and delicious. Were very surprised by the sides. Corn... More
