I've had better BBQ, very expensive. Coleslaw was dry, bread wasn't fresh, just wasn't satisfied. Head down to the State Line or even the Roadhouse for better quality food.

They have several meat selection for sandwiches. I got the Prime Rib and my sister got the wet brisket. Both were excellent!

Having eaten here many times, I have found that Rudy's has consistent, quality, and great tasting food. I also order meals from their window service, and have always had them fulfilled correctly. I really enjoy their lean brisket; always get baked beans, potato salad, and slaw. Their creamed corn is absolutely delicious.... love it! Also, enjoy their smoked baked potatoes....... More

Famous Daves has nothing on Rudy's. Everything is great about this place. Great for big events considering the tables are long picnic tables. It's also a small liquor store/gas station in the front which is pretty convenient.

Rudy's has an excellent reputation so when we needed lunch and it was close by, so I agreed that it would be a good choice. The positives of the visit were the staff, and that we got our lunch quickly. We had brisket sandwiches with coleslaw. The BBQ sauce is good, and I guess the brisket was okay, except the... More

What is there to not like? The ambience is invitingly casual, the food is delicious, and the service is prompt. To make matters better, I called to place a last minute order and they accommodated me! Very pleased 🤗

Pretty standard bbq, meat was very tender. It's a cafeteria style resturant you Serve yourself to sides. They have the most delicious cream corn we have ever had, still trying to figure out how they made it so sweet.

Rudys is very good at briskets and sausage, the ribs were dry and chewy so I really didn't like them, beans and cream corn are excellent. I wish the Cole slaw was of better quality, just taste ok and served in a foam container which made it taste old and not very fresh.

This BBQ was to die for! So amazing, just sad my stomach wasn't big enough to try more items on the menu. The atmosphere was great, college football on the big screens, everything at your fingertips and friendly staff. What more could you want?!

Not a place for vegetarians. Service is always friendly and quick. A good sense of humor, they don't joke around with the quality of their food. A favorite place when you are hungry.

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.
