With all the great BBQ in texas, this place is on my list of least favorite. The food is mediocre. Why else do they sell so much BBQ sauce? It because the food can't stand on it's own.

Until last week in El Paso had only eaten in the Original Rudy's in Leon Springs. Apparently the franchises do breakfast. Stopped in New Braunfels yesterday morning and I do like eggs & brisket in a flour tortilla. A little onion, BBQ sauce and sweet...More

BBQ is consistently some of the best. Love the cream corn and the green chili stew. Been eating here over ten years and never disappointed.

Good portion of brisket. Nice smokiness. Enjoyable decor. Very good sauce, if you use sauce. Potato salad was just right. Easy access and easy to find for a newby.There are many opinions about bbq, but this was my favorite on this trip to Texas.

I have been a Rudy's fan for over 10 years. I stopped smoking brisket because I cannot make it myself better than Rudy's. My favorites are brisket, smoked turkey, pinto beans, and Sissy Sauce.

Bar-B-Q was added to the operation in 1989, and Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q has been serving up tasty food ever since. The same original recipes that built Rudy's Leon Springs' reputation are now available throughout the Southwest.
