This is a huge casual restaurant that caters to locals and tourists alike. Picnic table-type seating and serve yourself condiment bar and sodas. The brisket is my favorite, and can be ordered regular style or extra lean. Their potato salad is excellent as well. You wait in line to order, but the line moves quickly. There's a huge tub of cold beers and bottled sodas up front, but they also have a standard soda machine if you prefer that. They feature smoked pork, sausage, turkey, and brisket that you can order in sandwiches or as an entree. They have huge baked potatoes that they'll top with your choice of meat. The restaurant is close to Garden of the Gods and Manitou Springs, so it's convenient when touring the sites. Prices are reasonable for a large sandwich and sides. This is a great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

We were thrilled to find a Rudy's location here after eating so many times at this restaurant in Texas. The brisket is always perfect.

So good! Very cool concept. Communal eating and very country feel. The BBQ was delicious, well seasoned, and smoked to perfection. The brisket wet was my FAVE! Lean means all the fat is removed, there is chefs choice which has some fat, and then wet that has full fat! It was divine! GET THE BAKED POTATO!

I was with a group of board members and their families. We were in a private dining area with somewhat loud music.

The food was phenomenal ! Brisket is the best ever! It had a smoked taste to it and the sweet tea was worthy of a comment considering this Georgia native is a sweet tea critique ! The sauces once mixed were an excellent blend of mild and sweet and spicy. It was so obtrusive that you couldn't eat it if your palate can't take spicy sauces .

The service was lacking . We were a large party in a private room. When our party entered there was no one there to show us to the room. Because people came at different times it was disturbing to go out and find some of our party ignored . While the service lacked the food was really good !

I had the turkey my husband had sausage and brisket. We had beans and potato salad. Everything was delicious. You eat on butcher paper and it works. They have many kinds of soda, beer and tea. Oh and the chocolate pudding is the best ever. You do not leave hungry
