It's pretty simple, as you walk through a line and choose your meat by the pound (I'd go with the baby back ribs), but that's also the allure of the place. Even though it's simple, its fancy compared to a rib place like Dreamland in Tuscaloosa (but then again what isn't), but the simpleness is nice. Clean and a goo place to watch a football game as well - lots of TV screens.

Rudy's is a back-to-basics BBQ restaurant with a focus on high quality meat. They have THE BEST brisket you will find at any chain. (The turkey and sausage are pretty good as well!)
When you walk in, you grab your choice of bottled beer or soda. The bottled beverage choices are pretty good: big red, RC, Mexican Coke (w/real sugar), Dr Pepper (w/real sugar), orange crush, grape soda, etc.
Once at the counter you order your meat by the pound and it's served on a piece of wax paper.
If this place was not tasty, it would never make it.....but business is good!

This new location is packed with customers every time I have been by during lunch time and during dinner. I have heard nothing but great things about it.

We finally had a chance to go for lunch today. I had pulled pork and my partner had beef brisket. There is no combo meals here. Everything is separate. By the time you pick a meat, pick 2 sides and a drink you are over $10 easy. I would consider this pretty expensive for what you get. The quality of the meats were good but not the best I ever had. The sides were good but very small portions.

I think that once everyone in the area has tried this place the large volume of business will drop off. I can't see the attraction.

This is a new location in the Allen shopping area. If traveling north on I-75 exit at the shopping area and the store will be on the right. Good outside parking around the building. The atmosphere is strictly bar b q and beer. The meats are cut at the counter where you order. Prices are $6.49 to $6.99 for 1/2 pound of turkey, sliced beef, chicken, cut up beef or $2.79 for half a sausage. You order and pay for what ever amount you desire. They give you as much bread to go with your order as you request. There are side dishes such as slaw, potato salad and beans that you get directly from the refrigerators box. Drinks including a wide variety of beers are available. There is a country store in the front of the building where you can buy ice cream, sauces , drinks and souvenirs. Seating is at picnic tables. Clean up your mess after eating as they don't have table service. The place was clean as could be---after all it was new. The staff is friendly and will help if you have questions. Rest rooms spotless----let's see how long that last!!
