Had never heard of this place and decided spur of the moment to give it a try. A little put off at first that it also had its' own gas station, but once we went inside was saw it was a fun place, and the BBQ smelled sooo good. Everything we had was good. The only thing is every thing is a la carte, so if you want a variety of sides the cost can add up quickly. The sauces are heavy on the pepper and very close in taste, but both were good. The ribs and pulled pork could have used more seasoning, but both were tender and not fatty at all. Ask for samples at the counter if you're not sure about what to order.

We actually visited one of these in Texas. Amazing BBQ. Worth every dime and calorie. The beef brisket is to die for. The sweet tea is delicious. Love the atmosphere. In Texas all the good BBQ joints are gas stations, this one is no exception.

We are from Austin, so when we saw the sign for Rudy's we all squealed with joy.

Get the sausage, brisket, pulled pork or chicken. Those are the best meats. Their meat is fantastic even without sauce and when you add the sauce, oh man! The BBQ sauce is heavy on the black pepper, but they now offer Sissy sauce. I'm not a huge black pepper fan, but Rudy's is still my favorite Texas BBQ. The red potatoes are very good. Pass on the beans. The slaw is fine. Banana pudding , yum.

Our only complaint is WHY NO SHINER????? Shame on you Rudy's. We see what you are up to, Coors only products. Super disappointed that Shiner was not in the ice box. At least serve local Colorado craft beers. Also, why no meat cam? Notice, we still give you 5 stars, though:)

You can tell this place is good by the lines out the door. The line moves quickly and once you get up the counter you have your choice of many great meats. If you're not sure, just ask! They'll let you sample any of the meats. My recent favorite has been the turkey...it's sooooo juicy. It's true family style eating and your best deal is to order several different meats (ask for a loaf of bread) and a few sides and dig in. It's a great place to go with a group! I have not been disappointed yet. Many of the tables are picnic style covered in a vinyl table cloth and really long so plenty of room for large groups eating chuck wagon style.

It's also right next to Red Rock Canyon so you can do some hiking and then re-charge with a good hearty meal! Lots of leftovers too!

Very busy on a Saturday afternoon but despite the 20min wait, there was lots of tables and the staff was helpful with ordering. Like other reviews, the beans aren't the best in my opinion but everything else was very good. Need to make sure you figure out sides etc before getting to counter. Will go back if get the chance.
