“usually pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2008

Rudy's has very good bbq 95% of the time. probably the best bbq sauce i've had yet. i usually get sausage and brisket. the facilities leave a little something to be desired, but its great for an outdoor eatery.

“The Original and Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2008

The original store and my favorite of the Rudy's outlets. My second favorite Bar-B-Que spot in San Antonio. I like to sit by the fire on a cool day. And of course the Creamed Corn is the best ever. Another unique offering is their chili made with the tasty trimmings of all their meets. They only make it in the cooler months so get it while you can.

“Tooo yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2008

Went there with a group of guys (I was the lone girl) - and I have to say - I held my own! The creamed corn was seriously good (and I usually hate the stuff). The brisket was so good and tender, the turkey was full o taste and the ribs were a-ok. Brought home some of their sauce - can't wait to dip something in it!
