Staff is friendly and helpful. Food was hot and plentiful. Being from out of town we found the menu hard to decipher and ended up trying to buy items on the Lunch menu in the evening. The banana pudding was very tasty, but could stand...a few more slices of banana and not just pudding.More

Stopped here for a take out order of ribs while staying at a local hotel. Guy taking our order was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed to eat in our hotel room. Ribs were tender and very meaty. A side of...Potato Salad was also very good. Next time I’m in the area I wouldn’t mind eating here. I got a good vibe when I walked in and wouldn’t mind sitting down here for a meal.More

Our 1lb of brisket looked nothing like the ones pictured in T/A. Instead of thin slices of juicy beef that falls apart on the way into your salivating mouth, we received thick, dry, tough slices of taste-free meat. We've eaten at Rudy's in other states...and loved it. This meal bordered on inedible.... Well, maybe it crossed that line, since we didn't even eat half of it due to jaw fatigue and the general lack of flavor (despite being famished). What a shame -- $30 wasted and the dream of a local Rudy's shattered.More

Look, this is one of the best BBQ places you can go to. It’s legit AF and the meat is always as tender as cotton candy.

If you want some good BBQ, this place is for you. The meats are good and smoky. Eat as little or as much as you want, you can always have leftovers home for tomorrow. Everytime I visit Arizona, I come here at least once

I'm from Texas - so this is my comfort food. The brisket, turkey, ham are all amazing. The green chili stew too!. I am not much on the sides, and usually opt for just tea & chips....oh and plenty of the pickles and peppers! The...breakfast tacos are really good too.More
