Nice place. Love the pork ribs, the brisket is good to a point that doesn't need sauce to enjoy it fully. The chicken is good, but a little dry inside. The personnel was great friendly and attentive. Fully recommend it to everyone.

We started to go to Rudy's because we love the baby back ribs. I have also gotten the brisket, sausage, and turkey. I have not been disappointed yet. My son likes to finish the meal with a cinnamon vanilla ice cream.

I'm originally from Austin where the Rudy's BBQ is phenomenal and the employees are super friendly and welcoming. The food was okay but the customer service was horrible. The cashier talked about her last night experience at the bar the previous night with another employee while taking or order. Completely disappointed with this Rudy's especially since I love the one... More

Always good barbeque at Rudy's. The meat is great and the original sauce is very tasty. Sissy sauce for some not liking the spices is good as well. Atmosphere is good. Beans could be better.

I got the moist brisket, excellent taste, and moist too. Cole Slaw was very tasty and there is a nice selection of the local beer. Their... More

Having lived in TX for 15 years, when I returned on a short vacation I was hankering for some good Texas BBQ ribs. This place was recommended to me. It's different, I can honestly say that. Four of us shared the sides of coleslaw, potato salad, bean salad, etc. Those items were very good. The ribs...well, meh. OK, but nothing... More

The smoked turkey here is amazing! Try the new potatoes and cream corn for sides. Cold soda and beer in drop in ice coolers in the cue line. Big screen TVs pumping in sports in main dining area. Oh yea! They serve really yummy breakfast burritos in the AM

Colleagues talked this place up; I did not like it. Overpriced for what you get. Ribs were cold, taste was ok. Three beans tasted like three tbsp of sugar. No, will not go here again.
