Anything and everything is good here. Fun to people watch too if you are from out of town. Baylor loyalty abounds!

Rudy's BBQ is the best we have ever had. Their brisket can be ordered lean or "wet." I say go for the "wet" because it is so tender, juicy, and flavorful. Their pulled pork is delicious too. You can get sandwiches or order the meat...More

I always order Brisket Butcher's Choice and the Smoked Turkey. Occasionally I alter and add Sausage and Ribs. But the Turkey is the best you will ever eat, Too Much Smoke can irritate me and I never have that problem with Rudy's.

Really great Bar-B-Que at a reasonable price. I had the regular sausage and my husband had the lean brisket and both were really good! Nice relaxing atmosphere.

Very good bbq. Yes, it is a chain bbq joint, but it is good quality food. The baked potato with dry chopped brisket is amazing! It comes loaded with butter, cheese, and sour cream. Top with some bbq sauce and it is yummy....

This was our first visit to this Rudy's. It is located near a traffic circle, but it wasn't hard to navigate. The food and service were great. Loved the brisket and creamed corn. It's a fun place to visit!

Just north of San Antonio, at the edge of the Texas Hill Country, sits the small community of Leon Springs. Founded in the 1800s by Max Aue, Leon Spring's cityscape changed when Max's son, Rudolph, opened a one-stop gas station, garage, and grocery store. Bar-B-Q was added to the operation in 1989, and Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q has been serving up tasty food ever since. The same original recipes that built Rudy's Leon Springs' reputation are now available throughout the Southwest. Our pits are 100% wood fired with oak, a slower burning wood than the mesquite used by others. Along with time and oak, we cook with a dry spice that ensures each plate of Rudy's Bar-B-Q is perfectly ready for you. Apply some of our famous "Sause" and dinner is served.
