We went here after church and the food was heavenly. This is a very rustic place with red checkered table cloths and pivnic table seating, but the food was terrific! We all ordered the beef brisket and it almost melted in your mouth. the beans were different but good. It was a bit of a drive to get here, but... More

I used to work at Camp Bullis in the late 90's, and Rudy's was one of the closest places to eat. After eating there the first time, I would drive from anywhere in the area to go to Rudy's...it's simply the best! I always get some brisket...it's always super moist and so flavorful! The cream corn is also a must-have,... More

Rudy's is a special treat if you love Texas style BBQ. Consistent from visit to visit, the baby back ribs are perfectly seasoned and smoked. As you make your way through the line you'll be greeted by Rudy's friendly staff and treated with a sample item of something you did not order. The ribs are meaty, the brisket lean, the... More

It was like going on a picnic - there were picnic tables located in an enclosed area. You stood in line and when you got to the counter, you ordered your meal - their cream corn is delicious!!! As you're going thru the line - to the right there are buckets filled with soda, etc. We happened to go there... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant on our way to SeaWorld and after reading the reviews, we stopped for lunch. We had the ribs, beans, and creamed corn. Everyone loved the food and we left stuffed. It was a simple, yet filling, meal. We had been looking for a Texas BBQ joint and we weren't disappointed. What a neat find!!

If you want some of the best Texas BBQ you will ever eat, you MUST visit Rudy's Barbecue. Just walking through the doors, the smell of smoked meats awaits to engulf your senses and make your mouth water in anticipation. They serve it up by the slice, pound, pint and more along with great sides to balance the entire experience... More

Stopped in for lunch for a highly recommended plate of Texas BBQ and we were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly, giving samples and making us feel welcome. The food was great and we will definitely go back the next time we're in San Antonio.

It has been a few years since my last Rudy's visit, but this trip to the original did not disappoint those fond memories. The moist brisket was just the best and you have to get the sweet cream corn if you go there. Oh, and try the ice cream out in the store if you have room. A "single" scoop... More

This is the perfect place for amazing BBQ in a country family style restaurant. We had a huge party for my son's graduation from Lackland AFB and this place accommodates all. You choose your food; meat and sides and eat at large family style tables. They had two rooms so you can have a large group. We had a great... More

I had the pleasure of picking up barbecue from Rudy's for many years. I used to love being able to take this stuff home. I could eat it plain or put Blair's Jalapeno Death Sauce all over it. Since moving away, I hadn't been there in awhile. I was glad to find that it's still just as good as it's... More
