We had dinner at Rudy's after asking a few locals for a good BBQ place. The meat is served by weight (as in 1/8 pound, 1/2 pound, etc). The sides were good and the brisket was great, but honestly I've had better ribs. The cost was a little high in comparison to what I had expected but it was good... More

The sign says the Worst Barbecue in Texas. Well if this is the worst, then I cant imagine just how good it can get. The prices were good. The Barbecue was solid. The sides were great. I loved the coleslaw and the cream corn. When they ask you if you want bread, they give you a few slices from a... More

All the BBQ is very good, however I think the turkey sandwich is by far the best deal. Maybe add a sausage link on the side.

I often eat at several different Rudy's BBQ restaurants here in south Texas, and they usually have excellent food and service, so I was somewhat excited to learn that the original Rudy's was in Leon Springs, just seventy or eighty miles from my house. The next time I was driving through there, I made it a point to stop for... More

We love eating at the original Rudy's. The brisket, cream corn snd smoked turkey is the best! It is always consistent and fantastic with the Rudy's sauce. Highly recommend!

If you like High end restaurants as I do, this is a shack. a very informal Shack that serves the best ribs in San Antonio. Brisket and turkey is very good also. Their hime made BBQ sauce is unique and very good. Thei cream corn is the best of all their side dishes. Their drink offering is extremely poor. Beer... More

We stopped by here due to all the great reviews. You order by the pound. If never been here, they don't explain how things work. Just seem to rush you through. Everything was well cooked (except brisket was dry) but just not to our taste. Husband who will go out of way for BBQ said it was all smoked well... More

After scouring the internet for a place to get great bbq, Rudy's was the spot we settled on after so many good reviews. We only had 1 night in the San Antonio area, so we were hoping this would live up to the reviews. It went far beyond, and was the most delicious meal we enjoyed on our visit to... More

Ever since I moved to Texas I fell in love with Rudy's. Their meat is always good and their cream corn if you're a cream corn lover you may need to buy extra to take home! Service is always fast and friendly!
