First time at Rudy's and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Sampled several of the meats and could have tried them all! Loved the creamed corn, devoured the peach cobbler! Such a fun place!

We like to take out-of-town guests to Rudys as it is unigue and the food is good. Don't expect fancy dinnerware or plush seating.....you have neither. We like to buy brisket and bread and make our own sandwiches. They have a great selection of peppers, onions, and pickles you can add (free).

Rudy's is one of those restaurants I ALWAYS go back to when travelling to Houston. The Baby Back ribs are always good - never to dry, always tasty. The restaurant is always full of people which prob speaks for itself.

After reading all of the outstanding reviews for this place, we came anticipating BBQ nirvana. Our experience was definitely a let down. My wife and I love BBQ and have eaten at many places around the country, so we have a good foundation for comparison. So here's the lowdown:
The baby back ribs were smoky but not tender and seemed like regular ribs rather than baby back ribs. The moist brisket was also smokey but not flavorful and would have benefited greatly from a rub. The chicken was good, not great. The potato salad was very good, the cole slaw was nothing to write home about.

Unlike other BBQ establishments, you order at the counter and meat is sold by the pound which is different than most places that let you order a rack of ribs. There is no cornbread, and they offer sliced white bread instead. The sauces at the table are ok, but not memorable.

I didn't try the desserts, but mostly because they didn't look appetizing. Some pecan pie would have been appreciated.

I've had better BBQ many times before and would not recommend this as I am sure there is better in Houston.

Can't beat the brisket and the sausage. The sides are awesome as well. Potato salad and beans are great and you have to try the cream corn. Right off the cob corn flavor in a tasty sauce.
