Right across from the hotel I stayed in for work, great after a long day to get a quick bite. Staff was pleasant and explained the process as it was my first visit. Turkey was amazing, good price and comfortable atmosphere.

I'm not from a place known for BBQ but I think Rudy's is the best. The brisket is my favorite, the turkey is great. The pulled pork and rubs are ok.
