Smoked turkey is the best - friendly Texas folks and no plates! How could you ask for more? Atmosphere is just like eating at the ranch! If you like pecan pie - personal size - get that to finish up your meal!

Order the moist brisket. It is so delicious. Also, if you love cream corn theirs is really good. Also, Rudy's is very generous in their community involvement.

I picked up some sliced moist brisket and sliced turkey breast and a couple smoked baked potatoes. Everything was great. 2 comments: one potato was much larger than the other...luck of the draw. The extra-large potato was good but the other, regular sized potato was more tender...I'll have to do more research on that. Also, found an excellent meat slicer... More

Love Rudys!! Never disappoints. We had pulled pork, smoked sausage, moist brisket, baby back ribs, and the smoked turkey. We also had the banana pudding which is a nice compliment to the BBQ. The pulled pork was incredible and the brisket was perfect. Loved the flavor of the sausage. The service is excellent and cannot wait to return. A great... More

Ordered to go. A sandwich was missing & the person at the register wouldn't even give us a whole loaf of bread. Which has never happened. We had enough bread for 4 sandwiches with a $50+ order & we are a family of 5 with 3 teen boys. We were compensated for the cost of the sandwich. Not happy with... More
