How can you give a BBQ place that's connected to a gas station 5 bullets? Easy !! Rudy's is totally unique -- great ribs, brisket and sides. Even the desserts are good. You won't mind sitting at picnic tables. Friendly/helpful/efficient staff.

This is the BEST BBQ in Texas! Normally order a half link of sausage and a half pound of brisket for the main coarse. Get new potatoes and coleslaw for side and pudding for dessert. There is a playground for kids and an outdoor seating...More

While there is nothing fancy about Rudy's, it is just first rate food. I loved the smoked turkey breast and could eat it for three meals a day. The prices are not cheap, but the quality makes up for it. A lot of the glass...More

Eating on PAPER! Love it! The bbq platter ordered for 5 came with an entire LOAF of BREAD!!! Ribs were great and so was the brisket! Ordered potato salad and cole slaw as sides which were good, but not needed. Atmosphere very southern BBQ.

Wow. Wow. Wow. Great food. All the options. Brisket. Turkey. Short ribs are my current favorite. The created corn is to die for, but cheating cook uses a lot of cream. Try the short ribs and sauce. You will NOT be disappointed

This is a nice family place, with good food. I'm not a BBQ connoisseur, but seemed OK to me. Minor complaint - the BBQ sauce did not come out of the bottles very easily. There is also a nice playground out back for kids up...More
