A friend of mine recommended this place for lunch. You order from the counter and they load up your bucket with the food you ordered. You add your sauce. The "sissy" BBQ sauce is more sweet, but the original is delicious too! They offer samples to first timers, which was great! The only thing I wouldn't get again was the... More

Large space, friendly cashiers. Picnic style tables. I did not care for the way they serve their sides. I had the green chili stew, it was way to spicy for me. All the others in my party loved their meats.

We went here for the first time on a whim because our first choice restaurant was too crowded. We had been meaning to come to Rudy's for quite some time. We had a really good experience. The cashier helped us in narrowing down our choices and gave us samples. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun. Will definitely return for another... More

I went here and had a perfectly acceptable BBQ meal for a reasonable price. The only thing lacking was any real atmosphere. It was decorated like a Six Flags park version of a mass-reproduceable version of a BBQ smokehouse. It was like a 1950's movie set, or kid's TV show stage version of a BBQ restaurant. The staff, while polite,... More

Delicious fall off the bone pulled pork and brisket. Seat yourself in a rustic down home setting. BBQ sauces on the table to add to the meats yourself and the sauces are terrific. Highly recommend. Low prices and great value! Banana pudding was very good.

I am new to Texas and have wanted to try Rudy's BBQ since I had stopped in for fuel and saw the big barn style eatery and brisket tacos. This is THE BEST brisket I have ever had. You can eat there, take it home, buy it by the pound (8.99lb) to take home, a sandwich, peach cobbler...oh and Rudy's... More
