Being from out of town, I was scared when I pulled up to a gas station for lunch. However, the staff was friendly and the service was quick. The foods was awesome. I tried the chopped meat and creamed corn. We chose to eat outside but the hot Texas weather and constant breeze was not comfortable. I'd recommend to eat... More

It was my wife's and I first visited to Rudy's barbecue and didn't quite understand the sequence to get your food. We felt rushed and the customer service didn't seem up to standard to all the other restaurants we visited in San Antonio. The creamed corn was good as advertised but the brisket and ribs were a little dry. This... More

If you head NW out of San Antonio on IH-10 and get off at the Leon Springs exit, you will find Rudy's Country Store and Bar-b-que. This place is an institution and they have do the cooking on site over a hardwood pit. This is not a fancy restaurant by any stretch of the imagination but the food is excellent... More

My wife, daughter, and I had a good time here. We had to try a bit of everything. The brisket was really good, which we don't see very much of in CA and surprisingly the cream corn was amazing. Highlight of the meal. Nothing like the canned stuff, which was our only other experience with it. Good BBQ sauce and... More

I frequently stop in for a take-out order. Makes a great family dinner when too busy to cook. My favorite is the turkey breast. My husband likes the lean brisket. Rudy's offers a Military dicount.

Went to this highly recommended iconic place yesterday Long, long line for the dine in option! Opted for the take out. Excellent service and gracious enough to give samples to "newbies" by us. We ordered the highly recommended brisket. Also ordered the chopped mix of brisket, pork and turkey in their barbecue sauce and the sausage link. For the sides... More

We picked up a bbq meal and took it to the hotel because we were feeding several people. The brisket was melt-in-your-mouth good. The cream corn was especially good. The only drawback was that they didn't have plates to go and we had to use the little cardboard holders for plates.

I was competing in an athletic competition on the North Side of San Antonio by LaCantara and this was recommended. What a great spot! Brisket was fantastic - with choice of lean or moist cuts. Gotta get the moist - it is incredibly tasty. Creamed corn is the best I have ever had. Very sweet - almost dessert. Ribs were... More

I love eating at the place! I was working at Camp Bullis and I stopped by here about three times in one week. The BBQ, brisket and everything else they serve is fantastic. The BBQ sauce is awesome and so was the service. They have a little shop inside where you can buy their rubs and sauce at decent prices.... More
