My husband LOVES Rudy's. He ate at one in Houston and was excited to go to a Rudy's when he was back in Texas. We actually even mail order their rub and sauce.
Neat place, love that the food is served on parchment paper. This Rudy's has a more limited menu then others we went to-not bad, just worth mentioning.
Everything we had was yummy-like the beef brisket the best. Kids loved the cream corn.
FYI-they have bottled drinks when you enter, in tubs with ice. Very cool for the atmosphere BUT, if you want a fountain drink-it is available and actually a cheaper way to go-your choice, thought it was worth noting.

The brisket is always cooked to perfection, juicy and Tasty! very casual atmosphere, love stopping here on the way back from the lake. They have several sides to choose from, my favorite is the cream corn! The price is right for the family too, you can't go wrong with stopping here.

I love the fact you can choose between lean or "moist" brisket. We always get the "moist" because it's not dry. Their sides are expensive. I would like for them to have plates.

Family and I had our first Rudy's experience in San Antonio. Excellent BBQ and sause was really good. Definitely a different BBQ than Alabama but very good. We had the baby back ribs and the link sausage along with potato salad and beans. Also had some pretty good peach cobbler. Great place.

My first visit to the original Rudy's was 10 years ago, and it's still the best BBQ in SA. Rustic atmosphere and old bldg but you don't come here for sanitation and a quiet dining experience. You come here to eat with plastic silverware, eat on picnic tables and eat great BBQ! Will definitely be back next time I'm in SA.
