Rudy's provides a good selection of meats and sauces and the quality of their meat and cooking style makes for favorable foods. They do an outstanding job with their turkey, great flavor and moist basket sandwiches. Worth the time to check them out.

I normally prefer to frequent local owned BBQ shacks but Rudy's is the exception. They have outstanding smoked meats and the potato salad cant be beat. I especially like the brisket breakfast tacos in the morning.

As a Texan Im always looking for good bar b que unfortunately I dont care for theirs but many ppl do. The sides are homemade and fresh. They do have a good selection of meats. The prices are moderate. They do serve beer & have a gas station attached.

Nice place. Love the pork ribs, the brisket is good to a point that doesn't need sauce to enjoy it fully. The chicken is good, but a little dry inside. The personnel was great friendly and attentive. Fully recommend it to everyone.

We started to go to Rudy's because we love the baby back ribs. I have also gotten the brisket, sausage, and turkey. I have not been disappointed yet. My son likes to finish the meal with a cinnamon vanilla ice cream.

I'm originally from Austin where the Rudy's BBQ is phenomenal and the employees are super friendly and welcoming. The food was okay but the customer service was horrible. The cashier talked about her last night experience at the bar the previous night with another employee while taking or order. Completely disappointed with this Rudy's especially since I love the one... More

Always good barbeque at Rudy's. The meat is great and the original sauce is very tasty. Sissy sauce for some not liking the spices is good as well. Atmosphere is good. Beans could be better.

Having lived in TX for 15 years, when I returned on a short vacation I was hankering for some good Texas BBQ ribs. This place was recommended to me. It's different, I can honestly say that. Four of us shared the sides of coleslaw, potato salad, bean salad, etc. Those items were very good. The ribs...well, meh. OK, but nothing... More
