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.

This place has been my favorite bar b que place for a long time and it doesn't stop now. I had the turkey sandwich with a side of cream corn and jalapeño sausage link. This made my day. Bought some sause to take home. Will come back.

I love this place for barbeque. The brisket and sausage are sooo tasty. They also make seriously good beans. They have a good selection of sides like potato salad, cole slaw, corn on the cob. I have never had a bad meal here. Just be ready to eat on platic covered napkins. Kind of unique but may not be for... More

Free samples for first time visitors I would recommend the brisket and homemade cream corn. Perfect sweet tea. Cute and unique country style restaurant surrounded by a big city that is Mexican food galore, so it was nice to see a BBQ joint. Would definitely return.

I will say it's not the very best BBQ I've ever had, but it is very good. Personally I like the turkey. This is one of the few places that we can go eat with our kids, 6 and 2yrs, and he they gobble up their food. Also, their fresh brewed sweet tea..... two big thumbs-up!

We are so glad they built this place. I stop here while driving through and get my order to go, so I can eat now and have some left over to enjoy later. This is a stand in line, fish your drink out of the ice trough, buy by the pound and sit on picnic table kind of place. They... More

I've had better BBQ, very expensive. Coleslaw was dry, bread wasn't fresh, just wasn't satisfied. Head down to the State Line or even the Roadhouse for better quality food.
