If you choose, brisket, turkey, sausage or pork you will be happy! Meats always good. Great selection of sides. Peach cobbler tastes like your Grandmother made it!

Rudy's is always busy and for good reason. You get awesome barbecue with generous helpings for a good price. On this most recent visit I went to the take out window. I am in love with their smoked turkey and creamed corn so had to get those along with potato salad. The staff is patient despite being really busy. Definitely... More

Looks may be deceiving at first, but relax, and give it a try; You'll enjoy the atmosphere! The food is simply AMAZING! BBQ meats are the star here, but the sides are good too. If you're anywhere around San Antonio, you'd be foolish not to eat at Rudy's at least once. I'll be visiting from the Chicago area, and this... More

When you come to Rudys, the deep smoky bar b que is thick in the air. The meats are of course why you are there. Tender brisket is very tender. The sausage is nice and spicy. The sides are a nice addition, especially the creamed corn.....enjoy

Love, love, love this place. I moved from San Antonio and miss this place like crazy. Such amazing BBQ that's not comparable to anything I've come across. If you're in San Antonio you have to go and eat here or even get take out. Best ever and miss it so much. Wish there was one in NC. My husband and... More

We were looking for BBQ to take back to hotel to eat & watch NFL games. This was our first time at this place & were definitely impressed. The staff gave us samples & explained side options. Even though BBQ is expensive this is a good choice & taste was outstanding- great meal for us watching football!

We stopped in for dinner and had the brisket, Baby Back ribs, and creamed corn for a side. The staff here are extremely friendly and helpful, and if you ask about a type of meat, they give you a sample to try. The BB ribs weren't ready so we got some brisket and creamed corn to start with while we... More

Want to catch that yummy BBQ sauce before it hits your shirt! BBQ is always tender and fresh; creamed corn to die for; good potato salad. In house, meat served on a piece of butcher paper. Only drawback: no drive in window!
