Rudy’s is a fun place to get a very good genuine Texas BBQ for an average BBQ price. Their cream corn is excellent but the pork ribs I had were definitely not falling off the bone. They were a little too much black pepper in...More

The true test of a great pit-master is the smoked turkey breast. Just about anybody can throw some spices on a big hunk of fat and have it turn out flavorful and juicy but to make a moist and tender turkey breast with a nice...More

I have eaten a lot of BBQ, and I make my own ribs and brisket, which people seem to like. We visited Rudy's while dropping my son off at UNT; it came highly recommended by our hotel staff. We found the food a bit bland...More

The Rudy's BBQ is very good and is almost as fast as a drive inn. It is much better that other chain BBQ places. The Brisket is awesome especially if you order moist untrimmed. Ribs are great and the potato salad is the best around.

Amazing tasting brisket and ribs but it’s a very different serving style. For the most part self serve and not fancy but a great experience. Pick your drink from a trough, salad from a cooler and load your meat in a basket. Unique but not...More

My brother and his family took me here to enjoy some Texas BBQ. This place is the real deal. Long picnic tables with red checkered table cloth - a "community" or "family style" seating, where you eat with a paper mat on the table. There...More
