“Worlds Worst BBQ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Great BBQ (Brown Cow Taco)! Incredible! However, you must do something about the Flies!
There were too many flies in the Dinning Area; can only imagine in the food prep and cooking areas! Hard to keep an appetite when there are that many flies - and its not even State Fair Time.

“One of my favorite places.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

I have a couple of places in the country that are my standards for brisket. This is one of them!! Nothing fancy - just good food!
Hint: when they put your order in the scale and its a bit over, they will ask if you want to take some off. SAY NO! You're going to eat every bit.

“BBQ restaurant”

Similar to Famous Dave's but with a twist in the cafeteria ordering. Good food. Interesting seating, but too many flies.

“Fast Service and High Quality Smoked BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

We have used Rudy's for catering, takeout and dine in. The food quality is excellent. We had smoked turkey, lean brisket, beans, butter potatoes and their signature jalapeño sausage. Plenty of food at a reasonable price.

“Interesting Concept”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

The concept here is pretty neat. It's counter service and you pay for menu items by the pound. They have a pretty good selection of meats including two types of brisket.

Overall, I wasn't overly impressed with the bbq. Perhaps my expectations were a little high, but I've had better in New England (gasp!). Still worth a shot.
