We stopped in for dinner and had the brisket, Baby Back ribs, and creamed corn for a side. The staff here are extremely friendly and helpful, and if you ask about a type of meat, they give you a sample to try. The BB ribs weren't ready so we got some brisket and creamed corn to start with while we... More

Want to catch that yummy BBQ sauce before it hits your shirt! BBQ is always tender and fresh; creamed corn to die for; good potato salad. In house, meat served on a piece of butcher paper. Only drawback: no drive in window!

I have literally been to this Rudy's on Boerne stage Road maybe 45 to 50 times. I even saw George Strait eating there once back in the late 90s. Of course I did not have my camera on me when that happened. This place is great. The brisket is fantastic. The sausage is absolutely great too. I prefer the jalapeño... More

This place is awesome! It's food tastes great and it offers a huge variety of stuff. Going from brisket to chicken and having tasteful sides like sausage links, beans and its world famous and delicious corn! I always get to visit this place and it always amazes me with its incredible food and finger-licking cuisine.

This place isn't fancy, in fact, you eat on wax paper instead of plates. But wow, the food is delicious! We had to stand in line for about 20 minutes and it was worth every minute. We ordered a little bit of everything for the family to share and every bit was eaten. We can't wait to go again when... More

Came to San Antonio to visit family stationed there. They recommended Rudy's BBQ for both price and taste. The food is fantastic and the price was on the low side when comparing other local BBQ restaurants. The ambiance was fun.

Rudy's is one of the best BBQ places in San Antonio. Like other BBQ places, it is a pricey. For Military and Veterans they provide a 10% discount.

Got there late for lunch so no ribs left but brisket was excellent. Wished that they had cornbread instead of slices of white bread. Enjoyed local couple who were also eating there. Very casual and prices reasonable.

We have a Rudy's where we live and always love to eat there. We were expecting a similar experience at this one but were very disappointed. The service was okay, but the barbecued was very dry and tough.

We went here after church and the food was heavenly. This is a very rustic place with red checkered table cloths and pivnic table seating, but the food was terrific! We all ordered the beef brisket and it almost melted in your mouth. the beans were different but good. It was a bit of a drive to get here, but... More
