Rudy's is a staple lunch place for many people at my office and we go here pretty regularly.

Service - Not much to say here as you order at the counter, get your food, then sit down like most BBQ joints. The staff are usually very friendly.

Food - The meats are great and in my opinion better than all of the other places in the area. I'm sure there may be better places in the state of Texas but in this specific area this is great meat. The biggest negative I have against Rudy's is the lack of options when it comes to sides. They do have a few things like potato salad etc but the selection is very limited and it would be great if they even just added something like onion rings or fries.

Value - Pretty good for BBQ. Many places tend to overcharge but Rudy's is very reasonable for the quality.

Came in after a meeting with one of my coworkers. Enjoyed everything about the place from the moment walked in greeted at the door to the people helping us bring the counter

The food was awesome! Can't get much better brisket, ribs, or pudding around the city. We'll be back!

Although a chain, it is since of the best BBQ around. If you go with a group, order a little bit of everything and share. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

As a KC BBQ fan I would say Rudy's is definitely a place you should try. The meats I had were the brisket and ribs. Compared to what I'm used to eating I would say the meat was a little under seasoned, and not terribly smokey, yet it was tender and juicy and not mushy. This would have been kind of a disappointment if the house sauces weren't so good. They were highly seasoned and complimented the meat really well.

Sides, the beans I did not prefer at all, too bland, the corn was ok and the potato salad was excellent.

The atmosphere gets high marks. The large open seating with long tables, along with the butcher paper for plates motif, creates a casual fun place to be. This would be a great place to take a large group.
