“Great ribs at fantastic atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

Our family often goes to this place for a laid back meal. It is always so enjoyable to eat barbecue in this atmosphere! You order per lbs whatever you want as your meat and they give you plenty of slice bread with it. They also have delicious sides in different size containers. The tables are like picnic tables - tablecloth included! And plates are simply butcher paper! Prepare to get your hands dirty! They have large windows that give an outdoor feeling.
Kids always love it!!

“Baseball Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

We stayed at a near by hotel while passing through El Paso. Saw Rudy's and went to eat there. Always good. We got chopped beef and pulled pork. They give you all the bread you want so we made sandwiches.

They let us bring in our own water and chips so great meal at a great price. This is a quality BBQ chain.

“Vegetarians... Don't GO!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

This place is all about ribs, and they know how to do it right. Veggies, just forget it, but indulge in the best ribs, brisket, bar-b-q... and it's fantastic. Sorry Mom... "I didn't eat my vegetables"! (not sure if there were any). Oh... great baked beans too. It's a must do place if in the area.

“Brisket Was a Little Tough”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Like noted in earlier reviews by others, the food was expensive. Normal lunch with one meat and two sides and drink will be about $12.00.

I got the "moist" brisket. It was a tough cut of meat. Not horrible, but tough. The selection was definitely moist, but still a little tough.

I will go back but get a different cut of brisket.

“Good but very expensive!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We tried Rudy's at the request of family. It was very expensive to feed 8 people but we got lots of bread. The meat was delicious and cooked well. We like to mix the mouse brisket with the lean to get the perfect balance of juicy an healthy - if BBQ can be called healthy. We also like the Jalapeño links. Loved the spicy sauce rather than they sissy sauce.
