“So good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

We are from San Antonio and love Rudy's. It was a treat to find it here when we hankering for BBQ! Free pickles, great meat, and yummy sauce. Pudding was a little less than amazing, but we sure left full! Brisket and turkey were SO GOOD!

“Our family loves this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

The food smells so good! Our three teenage sons love Rudy's! I loved the big baked potato stuffed with bbq. Our sons love the brisket and smoked turkey. The creamed corn in a cup is wonderful. Order your food and pick up your food at a counter - fast service at the counter, but at busy times, expect to wait in the kind of line that you would find at one of the rides at Six Flags over Texas. If you get there at a busy time, it is worth the wait. Most of the seating is on metal folding chairs at long cafeteria-style tables. Other seating is on wooden picnic tables. This is not luxurious dining. This is very good barbeque in a rustic setting. Big screen TVs set to sports shows.

“Bar BQ Brilliance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

I have just genuinely struggled to begin articulating the love I have for this place. It is a giant amongst eateries.

The baby back ribs, the smoked turkey, the brisket, the creamed corn are perfection in an oversized storage tray. Don't expect frills, fancy seating or décor just expect brilliant food, lots of it and the best sause™ that can be used with a Barbq platter.
