Rudy's is an excellent place for family-style Texas Bar-B-Que. The atmosphere is very casual, with picnic table dining. The ribs are outstanding, the turkey is delicious, the sausages are tasty and the brisket is delectable. Add the tasty Cole slaw, potato salad and condiments, and you have a great meal. Conveniently located on the south side of I-40 off exit... More

Just ate at this location for lunch and the baked potato with brisket was super yummy. I love knowing that no matter which Rudys you stop out you get the same food. The meat is sold by the pound or you can get sandwiches. The creamed corn is a delightful side. The self serve bar has peppers, pickles and onions... More

This location is identical to the Rudys in Waco. Food is consistent with other locations. Bathrooms are clean and attended by staff. It's easy to access from the highway and easy to get back on. I prefer their chicken and brisket. Breakfast tacos if available are my favorite.

Good Texas style BBQ. You buy the meat by the pound. I am picky about BBQ and will be back. Brisket is excellent. No need for sauce. Pulled Pork was average. Sides are very good. Establishment is clean and the staff are friendly.

Ordering at Rudy's is very easy and the staff are always friendly. We ordered regular sausage, jalapeno sausage, brisket, pulled pork sandwich, potato salad, cole slaw, beans, and for those who can eat dairy banana pudding. This was our 2nd visit and the food was as good as we remembered.

Great Food: Sampled the brisket and turkey. Turkey was very moist, the best turkey I've personally had. Chose the brisket as it is my go to...extremely tender. Selected two sides, one of which was a dessert. A little pricey how they have it set up but you definitely get what you pay for. Great Service: Engaged in conversation from the... More

This place proved the adage that the best BBQ is inside gas stations might be true. Couldn't tell if it started as BBQ joint or gas first, but the restaurant is now worth the stop. Cut your meats right in front of you and the sauces are really good. Staff was friendly and helpful.
