All the meat here is over cooked and dry. Good side dishes, soft drinks and cold beer. Don't expect the moist and tender meat Rudys serves in its original Leon Springs location or its San Antonio restaurants.

This is a barbecue restaurant that offers a very good brisket, ribs, pork chop sandwiches. The best of it is they offer unlimited bread. Gas prices are $.30-$.40 cheaper than other places.

Decent place to eat at. Food is good but not awesome. Their sauces on the other hand are delicious. Prices are ok but a little high.

You can choose the size of your portions at Rudy's, a Texas-style barbecue joint, but it's easy for your eyes to be bigger than your stomach. Go with the moist, fattier brisket. The turkey is surprisingly good too. Sausages and sides are not memorable.

I love going to local, hole in the wall BBQ joints, but if you can't find one even though Rudy's is a chain . . . It's good BBQ. They will have lean and moist brisket, which are actually different parts of the brisket. Moist...More

Rudy's Country Store -- and gas station is a local chain that serves “a la carte” (or is that “a la crate” because your tray is a basket and plates are waxed paper). Meats are sold by the pound; there are no special combinations. You...More

Delicious food. If you are not sure what you would like, they are more than happy to provide a sample. We have tried the pork, brisket, turkey and sausage and all were tender and flavorful. The sandwiches are packed, but we have found that buying...More
