We visited Rudy's in Allen after watching NCWA wrestling national championships. Stopped in with two PSU Mont Alto wrestlers after their tournament was over. What an amazing place. Beer, Bar B Que, and gas. Only in Texas. We had a brisket sandwich, pulled pork and baked potato the size of a car and amazing cream corn. What a great place... More

The four of went to Rudy's to get the BBQ fix! 3 had brisket and I had turkey, lots of bread, sauce and potato salad ( best in the metroplex) later we rolled out the door. The place is easy enough to find on the frontage road next to Cabela's on I75.

Rudy's is a highway style bbq place that features a great selection of bbq meats with typical brisket, ribs and sausage but also turkey and prime rib. Tubs of iced beers and soft drinks. They open at 6 am every day and serve terrific breakfast burritos. Two gas pumps outside always offer among the least expensive gasoline in North Texas.... More

Great barbecue. There are other, more well-known joints around but this place is my favorite. Chopped beef sandwich with creamed corn and a medium RC Cola... Man - that hits the spot! This is a quirky, fun restaurant with gasoline station and is reminiscent of the times-past country gas stations -- a welcome spot in the heart of a thoroughly... More

Chewy meats and sides that taste like they came out of a can...? I'll pass on this chain of subpar BBQ joints. Texas can do much better.

1/2 pounds of pulled pork, turkey and lean brisket along with jumbo smoked potato with butter, cheese and pork loin were ordered with sides of coleslaw, potato salad and green chile stew. All meat cooked well and very nicely flavoured, complimented by the sides and sauces Would most definitely return

Ordered BBQ brisket and smoked turkey, potato salad, and coleslaw for a party of about 10. It was ready for pick-up on time and food was hot, delicious, and finger lickin good! Jalapenos were whole and hot. Sauce was not too spicy not too sweet; just right. If you needed more heat, the Jalapenos were the ticket.

Drove in to get a bbq sandwich for lunch. Sitting in the car with window open the smell of smoker drove me even hungrier than I was. The cheery attendant also saw I was wearing my Army Baseball cap (It was Veterans Day) and cheerfully thanked me for my service and offered up a special Veterans Day Discount on her... More

Great food, great sauce, and great drink choices. Try the brisket (I prefer the lean), try the sausage, and fall in love with the green chile. Seriously, I wish I lived nearby because I'd go here often. But it's probably for the best (for my waist line and cholesterol).

Always good and casual, my first stop when I come to Allen, friendly staff. Plenty of food, great brisket and never rushed, peaceful place to sit and eat in a casual atmosphere without the crazy hustle and bustle or the fancy crowd. The staff is more than helpful if you are a newbie and haven't learned the ropes yet.
