Never had a bad meal here. Service thru line moves quickly. Eat in or take it home. Can't go wrong with Rudy's.

We eat here every Monday and my assistant goes here daily for breakfast and to get a drink in the afternoon. We needed a private room on short notice and they hooked us up instantly. We will always eat lunch here and have our meetings here. The moist brisket Is out of this world!!!

The food was great but the staff needs a little work on being attentive and the speed of the service. Overall, a decent place

There was a long line but they cleared it quickly. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The pulled pork sandwich was delicious!

Never coming here again. Food is not worth what I spent. The meat was too dry and over seasoned. First and last time coming here, taking my money to different BBQ place.

Rudy's is the absolute only chain bbq restaurant I endorse. With a great Texas rustic-bar atmosphere I feel right at home. I also love that sometimes you have to get cozy with strangers who become friends at the long picnic tables provided. From the breakfast tacos to smoked turkey, to the peach cobbler, to the sweet tea, every item is... More

Great Texas BBQ place. They have everything on their menu: Brisket, sausages, pork, turkey, chicken and it offers a good range of sides. But the brisket is by far my favorite. The place is quite simple and casual.

You can get a sample if you can't decided in what to choose, brisquett, ribs, chicken are excellent. The creamy corn the Cole salad, and potato are good. Have a good experience and their sauce is excellent

The moist brisket is to die for. Everytime I act like it's my first time to get a sample of the greatness before I order it. The jalapeño sausage and turkey are also top notch.
