Rudy's defiantly has the best breakfast burritos in the Albuquerque area. The service was great and the food was very good.

Rudy's BBQ is great, they have a very informative allergen menu online and available in the store as well. I can't eat soy, dairy or gluten and I am always able to find a filling meal at Rudy's. My husband has celiac disease and he has never had a cross-contamination issue at Rudy's. I love the brisket, pork ribs and... More

The brisket is our favorite. It's lean, smoky, and when dabbed with Rudy's tangy & spicy sauce, it's probably the best BBQ in Albuquerque. You can save time and avoid long lines by phoning in your order in advance and picking it up at the store.

I just love their food and so is the bbq sauce. Im not a real fan of sausages but theirs has changed my mind after giving it a try and they're really good. We also ordered beef brisket and it was just the best. My husband and I gave it a 2 thumbs up! Definitely will be going back.

Great Brisket, both lean and fatty. Pulled pork was Right, but the chopped was too seasoned. I wish it was easier for first timers to find napkins silverware or were anything is.

My kids took me here for Father's Day and I had the brisket and it was the best brisket I've ever tasted in New Mexico. Nice friendly staff and very clean restaurant as well

I have eaten many times at Rudy's BBQ and it has been very good each and every time. Try one of their Baked Potatoes loaded with chopped brisket, it's the best and very filling. I work around the corner from them and the smell that comes from Rudy's is the best.

This used to be a place we'd go to pretty often, and it was our go-to BBQ joint. The brisket used to be out-of-this-world. Unfortunately, not so any more. We visited recently and found the brisket to be tough and nearly flavorless, and the sausage was dry and tough. The prices have gone way up, as well. It's really too... More

We were looking for a place to eat a late lunch. Using my son’s phone we found Rudy’s. This is cafeteria style dining; you order your meat by the pound. They have three kinds of brisket, moist (this is the one we like), lean (not that much fat but not as good as the moist) and they have regular brisket.... More
