1/2 pounds of pulled pork, turkey and lean brisket along with jumbo smoked potato with butter, cheese and pork loin were ordered with sides of coleslaw, potato salad and green chile stew. All meat cooked well and very nicely flavoured, complimented by the sides and sauces Would most definitely return

Ordered BBQ brisket and smoked turkey, potato salad, and coleslaw for a party of about 10. It was ready for pick-up on time and food was hot, delicious, and finger lickin good! Jalapenos were whole and hot. Sauce was not too spicy not too sweet; just right. If you needed more heat, the Jalapenos were the ticket.

Drove in to get a bbq sandwich for lunch. Sitting in the car with window open the smell of smoker drove me even hungrier than I was. The cheery attendant also saw I was wearing my Army Baseball cap (It was Veterans Day) and cheerfully thanked me for my service and offered up a special Veterans Day Discount on her... More

Great food, great sauce, and great drink choices. Try the brisket (I prefer the lean), try the sausage, and fall in love with the green chile. Seriously, I wish I lived nearby because I'd go here often. But it's probably for the best (for my waist line and cholesterol).

Always good and casual, my first stop when I come to Allen, friendly staff. Plenty of food, great brisket and never rushed, peaceful place to sit and eat in a casual atmosphere without the crazy hustle and bustle or the fancy crowd. The staff is more than helpful if you are a newbie and haven't learned the ropes yet.

What Amazing BBQ! I love this place. I eat a lot of BBQ being from the south and Rudys is some of the very best if not THE best I have ever had. I love the super friendly service, always greeted with a smile and an "I will do anything for you" attitude. This place has it going on. I... More

Don't be intimidated or underwhelmed by the gas pumps or picnic-style of this bbq joint. The decor and family friendliness are Meer Bach drop to the great bbq and home-style cooking. The brisket is great, complimented by the cream corn and peach cobbler. Come to relax with home cooking without the cleanup.

Rudy's has very good brisket whether you like it moist or lean. The meat is very tender and goes well with a large baked potato with butter, sour cream, and cheese along with a soft drink of your choice.

Nothing fancy at all! You stand in line to order, including eating off butcher paper and picnic tables. If you can get over that, you're paying premium price for your meal! If I'm paying that much for a meal, I want waited on!

I've visited Rudy's countless times. I've sample all the meats, enjoyed the loaded baked potato, and experienced many of the various sides offered. Every time the experience is delicious. The barbecue isn't drenched in sauces. In fact Rudy's has their own sauces that you can add once you get to your table - sissy and regular. Their tables are cafeteria... More
