Great ribs and smoked turkey. Lots of pepper but I like that. Very casual place and great for the family.

The food here is amazing. Not exactly a ton of variety BUT what is there is perfect. I had the turkey and the ribs, plus the cream corn, potato salad and bean salad. All of which was, as I said, perfect! Their BBQ sauce was also very good.

The restaurant itself is pretty unique (at least compared to what I've seen). You line up for food so it's basically as fast as fast food. Nice atmosphere inside and friendly staff. Though it's mostly self-serve so you don't really interact with the staff much after ordering. You can grab some extra sides like pickles and BBQ sauce, plus you fill your own drinks here which implies free refils. Which raises the question, if you can get free refils why do they even offer different size cups? But that's beside the point.

The point is if you're in San Antonio go here.

There's also a little store with snacks and souvenirs I think but I didn't go in so I can't comment.

Second Rudy's on our trip to Texas. This one was bigger than the one in San Antonio-also had more food choices. My Husband said that this one is more like the one he ate at in Houston. Not bad-just an observation.
Loved everything-tried the Big Spud-baked potato this time. Was able to split it in three-kids really liked. FYI-cool drinks in tubs when you enter, neat for the atmosphere, but they do have fountain drinks available, a little easier on your pocket. My kids are addicted to the cream corn. Daughter got a cool t-shirt. We LOVE Rudy's!

Loved that you can design your own meal and the place was great. The BBQ was about average but the Chili Pepper Stew is WONDERFUL!! It's really great that you can pick your side items and have a size choice. The order staff was mediocre but the people working the dining room did an excellent job keeping the place clean and organized.
