We enjoy going here on Sundays. Good bbq and ham . Enjoyed the sauces. The cream corn is excellent. Try the red potatoes. Come to think of it, sometimes I just want to eat the sides, they're so good!

Returned to Rudy's yesterday for lunch. Rudy's is consistently good barbecue. Brisket was moist with just the right amount of smoke flavor. Ribs were bit through tender and seasoned well. Service was good as always. I can always get a good meal at Rudy's.

Having never been to a BBQ place like this I had no idea what to get! I went with the brisket and took suggestions from the staff regarding the sides. It all worked out as the brisket was fantastic and the sides were great too.
