One of a few BBQ places in Laredo. I've been here for several meetings of a local organization. We've had the BBQ sandwiches with chips and a drink as well as a buffet with BBQ beef and turkey slices along with a delicious corn salad and beans. I've had the breakfast taquitos as well. Great place to take the family.

After rave reviews from our Pastor, we decided we had to try Rudy's. We were promptly greeted by a helpful employee and the selections were explained. Upon reaching the order area, we were delighted to find a sample of 3 types of brisket, pulled pork, beans and creamed corn. A hearty 1/3# of brisket was placed on our buns once... More

Always a pleasure visiting this place, great food, good prices and that special "saveur" of a well made Texas barbecue, nothing fancy but authentic, would come back anytime.

When driving north from Mexico into the USA, or returning to Mexico, this is always the place I visit for a meal. BBQ is good and overall atmosphere makes me quickly realize I'm in Texas. Relaxed atmosphere and good food. Highly recommend if you like BBQ.

The brisket is good.. they have moist and lean. The lean is as good as the moist. Pair this with the sweet tea or a beer.

Barbecue brisket is good. Brisket was not slices right. With grain instead of against so had long string. But other than that good tasting brisket.

You stand in a line to order your BBQ, which is sold by weight. All the meats are cooked/smoked to perfection. The turkey is low fat and very smoky, just like the chicken and they have a jalapeno sausage that is to die for. The brisket is very tender and delicious. I do not even need their signature sauce for... More

Rudy's is a no- frills folksy place with a country orientation based on a farm theme. Wash basins are troughs, plumbing is basic low-cost faucets, furnishings are picnic tables and benches, cold drinks are in ice filled cattle troughs. Ordering is efficient with 4 registers at peak hours and meats include barbeque varieties of brisket, pulled pork and chicken and... More

She then fully explains how to order, and lets you know there are NO combo plates. You pay for everything. I got 2... More
