This location is one of the originals. I was craving their breakfast tacos which this location doesn't have. The food was delicious, but I wish the restaurants had some consistency in what they offer!

Very good bar-b-cue and the service is friendly. They give a discount to all active, retired, and former military members. Don't let the long line fool you ~ it moves fast. They are famous for the corn so you should at least try the sample they offer. It is a little sweet for my taste, but very good.

Been going here for over 25 years and it doesn't disappoint. I first went to Rudy's over 25 years ago when I met my native Texan wife. We go back every year when we visit her family in San Antonio or when I go back deer hunting. It you like Texas Barbecue, it is some of the best I've ever... More

Being from out of town, I was scared when I pulled up to a gas station for lunch. However, the staff was friendly and the service was quick. The foods was awesome. I tried the chopped meat and creamed corn. We chose to eat outside but the hot Texas weather and constant breeze was not comfortable. I'd recommend to eat... More

It was my wife's and I first visited to Rudy's barbecue and didn't quite understand the sequence to get your food. We felt rushed and the customer service didn't seem up to standard to all the other restaurants we visited in San Antonio. The creamed corn was good as advertised but the brisket and ribs were a little dry. This... More

If you head NW out of San Antonio on IH-10 and get off at the Leon Springs exit, you will find Rudy's Country Store and Bar-b-que. This place is an institution and they have do the cooking on site over a hardwood pit. This is not a fancy restaurant by any stretch of the imagination but the food is excellent... More
