We've made several trips to Rudy's and have yet to be disappointed! Outstanding barbecue and great atmosphere. Definitely a stopping place when in the Old Colorado City/Manitou area.

We tried Rudy's after hearing from friends how great it was. The food was ok... Nothing special. Will go to Bird Dog BBQ in the future.

This is a huge casual restaurant that caters to locals and tourists alike. Picnic table-type seating and serve yourself condiment bar and sodas. The brisket is my favorite, and can be ordered regular style or extra lean. Their potato salad is excellent as well. You...More

We were thrilled to find a Rudy's location here after eating so many times at this restaurant in Texas. The brisket is always perfect.
