Food is always good! I love ordering the jalapeño sausage and brisket sandwich. The original BBQ sauce is great!

The food was ok IMHO. I wasn't really impressed but it was nice and the prices are good. They serve the meats by the half pound. If you like cream corn I would recommend theirs.

Great food, cold beer, open seating fun. Time to get messy, but as the sign says " your mothers not here so clean up after yourself". Smoked ribs, turkey, chicken and brisket. Texas taste and experience you won't regret!

A chain BBQ joint with all the fixins. Their BBQ sauce is exceptional. I had pulled pork and chicken. Yum! However they have detoured their customer service to place the drive-up as their primary focus mostly ignoring their customers waiting at counter to order.

I still enjoy the taste and quality of food at Rudy's. I especially like the lean brisket, creamed corn, beans, and potato salad. They have great smoked, baked potatoes (huge).

Nice and simple but cool set up, great food..try the jalapeño sausages, ribs, brisket and cobbler peach pie!!like the fact that you can get a drink while tour waiting in line..although based on the theme of the place i dont like eating on a piece of wax paper..other than that great
