Love Rudy's for Texas style BBQ. We usually eat family style and get several sides to go with the moist brisket. The cream corn is out of this world. They make it with ice cream. Sounds funky, but its a winner.

Great brisket. It is quite homey and folksy. You just eat on paper on your picnic table after queing up cafeteria style. But the food is plentiful and the bbq is very good.

Usually our bbq is pretty good, this most recent visit was just ok. Brisket flavor was good but it was very tough. Sausage was good. Potato salad was fine but not as good as usual either.

We grown fond of breakfast tacos. This is the place to be. Brisket, egg, chorizo, jalapeno, sausage , etc. Their mint coffee is why I am also here. Decent price. Friendly service. What more can we ask for to start our day right.

You can't go wrong here. This is by far the best chain style barbecue place I've been to. I recommend the brisket and sausage. My wife on the other hand, recommends pulled pork and chicken. As you can see there's something for everyone.

A friend of mine recommended this place for lunch. You order from the counter and they load up your bucket with the food you ordered. You add your sauce. The "sissy" BBQ sauce is more sweet, but the original is delicious too! They offer samples to first timers, which was great! The only thing I wouldn't get again was the... More

Large space, friendly cashiers. Picnic style tables. I did not care for the way they serve their sides. I had the green chili stew, it was way to spicy for me. All the others in my party loved their meats.

We went here for the first time on a whim because our first choice restaurant was too crowded. We had been meaning to come to Rudy's for quite some time. We had a really good experience. The cashier helped us in narrowing down our choices and gave us samples. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun. Will definitely return for another... More
