I've eaten at Rudy's BBQ many times, both in Texas and in Colorado. The Colorado Springs location is rather new...maybe 2-3 years old. When you show up (at the corner of 31st & Hwy 24), you'll first notice that it's co-located with a gas station. Don't let that deter you from enjoying some awesome BBQ!

Rudy's is a casual dining experience. You enter, stand in in line, and then rather order a meal, you order your meats by the pound. They have a pretty good selection of brisket, pork loin, turkey breast, sausage, chicken, etc. and 4-5 solid side dishes. I'm all about the meat, so I'll usually order 1/2 pound or so of 3 different meats (so I can have leftovers to take home). I'm partial to the turkey, pork, and brisket. When you order, they'll also give you some slices of bread (in case you want to make a sandwich).

After ordering, you need to find a seat. This is another difference between Rudy's and most casual places: almost all of Rudy's seating is on large picnic benches. Go find a few seats that you need, and you may be a seat or two away from another person/family.

Rudy's also has their very own BBQ sauce (delish!) and condiment bar (peppers, onions, etc.). They serve great breakfast tacos as well. I've even been there for an office function as they have a room in the back that holds 40-50 people. Outdoor seating is available for warm summer days/evenings.

I love Rudy's BBQ so much that when I drive back from Manitou Springs or Woodland Park to CO Springs, I'll stop there half the time to get some food...the last time was lunch a few weeks ago. Highly recommend this place!

Good BBQ and a great place to people watch. Being a local to the area, it is fun to go to a place that is a destination for people from all over the country. The food is good, simply done and everything I have had here tasty. Overall just a great experience!!

The BBQ is very good, the views from the patio are excellent. You can see Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak and Bear Creek Park. Try the brisket, you won't be disappointed.

When hiking red rock you can work up an appetite! This is a great place to go. Not your normal eatery but defiantly worth the stop.

We met some folks picnicking at Garden of the Gods and they had food from Rudy's. They said if you like BBQ you have to check out Rudy's...so we did. WE were NOT disappointed. We had the BBQ Chicken and Brisket. Both were excellent. Large portions when you also get sides. loved the creamed corn and the bean salad. We had leftovers for a second meal!
