A chain BBQ joint with all the fixins. Their BBQ sauce is exceptional. I had pulled pork and chicken. Yum! However they have detoured their customer service to place the drive-up as their primary focus mostly ignoring their customers waiting at counter to order. I was first in line with 2 customers already ordering in front of me. I could... More

I still enjoy the taste and quality of food at Rudy's. I especially like the lean brisket, creamed corn, beans, and potato salad. They have great smoked, baked potatoes (huge). However, unfortunately, when I use the drive-through for orders, I don't always get my correct order. It may be the bread slices, condiments, utensils, sauce, etc., but it is rather... More

Nice and simple but cool set up, great food..try the jalapeño sausages, ribs, brisket and cobbler peach pie!!like the fact that you can get a drink while tour waiting in line..although based on the theme of the place i dont like eating on a piece of wax paper..other than that great

We decided to try Rudys after reading Tripadvisor ratings. We were not disappointed. Staff were very helpful. We shared an order of baby back ribs, brisket sandwich, coleslaw and three bean salad. It was so good we went back for half chicken and more ribs. Delicious meat came away from the bone and was so juicy and flavourful.

Rudy's is my go-to place to eat when in El Paso. Their brisket and smoked turkey is so flavorful and moist. Get it as a sandwich or on a plate. I enjoy their tasty potato salad and my absolute favorite, their creamed corn. They offer many sides and love those dill pickles and onions and "sissy" sauce. I am never... More

If you're craving a really good brisket sandwich, but you don't want to spend 12 hrs smoking your brisket this is your place. Their sides in my opinion are not the best, but I love their brisket sandwich with their homemade BBQ sause, fresh onions, pickles, and jalapeños.
