“Best BBQ joint we've been to.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

The meat packers vibe isn't gimicky, it's cool. We tried the moist brisket and pulled pork, both of which melted in our mouths. It was so good that you don't notice that you're eating right off the butcher paper it was served on. The cream corn was really good and we liked the good old fashioned chocolate pudding for dessert.

“Excellent Meat and Sides”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Rudy's has some of the Best BBQ They are known best for their brisket. They also have ribs chicken turkey and pulled pork. Line is about 20 mins on weekends but it moves pretty fast. Excellent sides especially the corn on con and baked beans. Once you get your food you seat yourself. Value for good is excellent

“Unexpected :-)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

We were surprised by Rudy's in a good way. We expected a sit-in kind of restaurant, but then we saw the line and the menus above the counter. We had an excellent meal. We had the Prime Ribs (beef), the baby back ribs and a whole sausage. The meat was very good. We ordered three sides corn on the cob, cole slaw and beans. The coleslaw was good, the corn was not as sweet as we expected and the beans were blend (not a good choice here)! The ambiance of Rudy's is nice, big tables, vintage decor... Definitely recommend it!!

“Fun place to stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

We stopped here after driving by it a few times throughout the day. It really caught our attention because we had never seen a restaurant/ gas station all in one. When we walked into the building there was a huge line to order dinner. I was amazed. The line went quickly and we all ordered some wonderful bbq. The giant baked potato and the baked beans seemed to be the favorites at our table. I asked around and people said it was always crowded because the food is so good. There was a huge seating area both inside and out. We sat outside until it started pouring on us. I would recommend stopping here for dinner if you are in the area. Fun & delicious. The kids loved it too.
