Many people deride Rudy's because they are a chain. I think that is actually one of their strongest attributes! Rudy's is characterized by excellent customer service, always "on point" meat (not dried out meat held over from the previous meal service), and very clean environment. They do enough volume, at all hours of the day to ensure that the meat... More

I've visited 2 locations of Rudy's and have not been disappointed at all at either location. The moist brisket is like butter! Tender and delicious! You must try the corn - wow! - it's like dessert and the perfect side with the brisket. I always order the cole slaw, but didn't really love Rudy's. But, I'm not going there for... More

Husband eats at Rudys when goes to Texas without me. I'm not a BBQ fan. Nov 2016, he went with friends in Norman OK. All had the moist brisket and sausage. Friend from Washington State thought it was excellent as did hub (as usual). Only negative was way too much OU land thieves stuff decorating the place. Gig 'em.

I am a Texan who loves BBQ and this is not my favorite BBQ place but it is fun to stop in when traveling. The lean is a bit too dry for my taste but the moist a bit too fat. I got the brisket sandwich, which was difficult to eat...dry in places and very fatty in others. I prefer... More

My friends order us breakfast tacos to go and then we ate them back at their house. We had three different kinds: bacon & egg, sausage and egg, and BBQ and egg. They were all very good and would definelty eat them again. I do not see online where their website even shows that they offer breakfast.

We were headed down I-35 and running low on gas. That's what caused me to take the exit and stop at the Shell Station. After filling the tank, I popped inside to use the bathroom. That's when I noticed that this was a BBQ place. Rudy's has really good brisket. They have 2 kinds of sauces- if the regular sauce... More

Living in the Great Northwest I sorely miss Rudy's. I love other Texas BBQ places but I can ALWAYS count on Rudy's quality. This is easily a 5 star experience. Brisket can be moist or lean by choice or allow the cutter to choose. If you are new to Rudy's just tell them and get some samples. The brisket needs... More

Some great food here. Order at the counter, pick up your drinks and cold sides and get your meats and hot sides when ready. When told we had never been there before they gladly offered samples. Off to communal benches to enjoy the pickins.
