My husband and I enjoyed the brisket and turkey smoked spuds. My daughter had brisket sandwich and cream corn. All was very good. The atmosphere is very laid back and family friendly!

I was never really a fan of Rudy's, but after they catered to one of our events I gave them another shot. For the price, it is actually pretty good barbecue. Its not the best in Corpus, but definitely worth the visit.

While in town on a visit we stopped at Rudy's. Had a great lunch, meats and sandwiches were extremely good. Our side dishes were also very good. Probably could have eaten there the whole stay, but we had too many other places to be at....More

Consistent fare with good menu choices. Turkey and prime rib (on Fri, Sat, and Sun) are terrific. Pulled pork sandwiches and ribs are good. Moist brisket is very tasty. A tad expensive.

Average BBQ, it's mystique is tired. Lunch for $19 for a sampler and OMG the flies... Surprised they did not charge for the white bread slices, but did for the onion and pickles, are you kidding me? Over rated and over priced!

I hadn't had Rudy's in years after moving to the Midwest so I was looking forward to this meal. In Illinois there is a Texas BBQ chain called Hickory River. I guess I got spoiled with them because their meat has nice beautiful smoke rings...More

This is the second time I have visited Rudy's, and it was even better than I had remembered. The moist beef brisket is to die for! Thank god they don't have a Rudy's in Wisconsin or I would weigh 400 pounds!

Rudys is an ala carte BBQ palace. Order upfront, waot for order so quickly to your table. Its 8 out 10 taste. Brisket is fabulous. Baby back, although meaty, lack a full flavor smoke taste. Great ambience, picnic table seating.
