We were looking for an easy going place for Saturday night early dinner. Rudy’s was a perfect fit. As always we ordered too much of everything. BTW, everything was very good. So, you have to give Rudy’s a try.

Went here because it was the original and I like the other Rudys. I was disappointed in that the moist brisket was very dry and overcooked. Sides were as good as always. It is a neat place because it was the first but have different...More
