“take your non-Texan friends here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We were looking for good BBQ in Texas to which to treat my European family. We found it at Rudy's! The food was excellent, giving my cousin a true taste of Texas. The service was wonderful. The staff was very patient and informative about food choices. I highly recommend Rudy's, and intend to go back on future visits to A&M.

“Good food, staff could be more consistent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We frequent Rudy's. I especially like the moist brisket, other BBQ places often have very dry brisket. The green chile stew is hearty and flavorful too.

The breakfast tacos are good too, although portions can be inconsistent. Service is spotty too, some clerks are cheerful and friendly, others seem less enthusiastic.

“Best BBQ I`ve had for awhile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

Its good eatin` at Rudy`s, I checked Trip Adviser beforehand and I agree with them it is the best around. This place has alot of character, and just the right feel for a BBQ joint. I wish we had something this good in Utah. Four of us ate foe $35.00, so it was a great meal for a great price.

“First stop and a good one”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013 via mobile

This was our first place to eat in College Station. It was the Friday night before a home game. We were served quickly. Just a heads up they serve by the pound. I received a quarter of a a pound of turkey and brisket. The meat was delicious!! However their beans and sweet tea were not much to be desired.

“Rudy's BBQ in College Station delivers!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Rudy's BBQ in College Station has been our game day meal prior to Texas A&M football for many years! We have had many family and friend reunions at this establishment many times in the last 10 years before kickoff. The lean sliced brisket and the smoked turkey are some of the best we have ever had. The service is always top notch and the staff always greet you with the traditional "Howdy"! Would never consider anywhere else for BBQ prior to a TAMU football game.

Game day tradition!!!!!!!!!!!
