“The best Rudy's”
Review of Rudy's

Rudy's
Ranked #10 of 411 Restaurants in Waco
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Barbecue
Description: Just north of San Antonio, at the edge of the Texas Hill Country, sits the small community of Leon Springs. Founded in the 1800s by Max Aue, Leon Spring's cityscape changed when Max's son, Rudolph, opened a one-stop gas station, garage, and grocery store. Bar-B-Q was added to the operation in 1989, and Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q has been serving up tasty food ever since. The same original recipes that built Rudy's Leon Springs' reputation are now available throughout the Southwest. Our pits are 100% wood fired with oak, a slower burning wood than the mesquite used by others. Along with time and oak, we cook with a dry spice that ensures each plate of Rudy's Bar-B-Q is perfectly ready for you. Apply some of our famous "Sause" and dinner is served.

Probably our favorite Rudy's. Good food and terrific atmosphere on Baylor game days. The line moves fast and the service, such as it is, is crisp and courteous.

This is one of several Rudy's locations, some of which are company owner and other franchise. This one is company owned. Food is very good. Wood fired and smoked bar b q which we think is far better than cooking in a commercial oven. You order by the pound and the meat is served on a large piece of butcher paper along with several slices of bread. Side orders come in a styrofoam cup. The ribs are excerllant as is the sausage. Brisket and chicken are equally as good. Drinks come either fountain or in bottles. Service is excellant. Head for a picnic style table and have fun with the family.A trip to Rudys is always great.
