This is a very casual restaurant with picnic tables and a walk up counter to place your order. There is a cooler at the counter to pick out your salads and desserts and drinks are in a trough like cooler on the way to the counter. No plates, just rolls of paper to tear off to eat your food on,... More

The food wasn't bad but after seeing it on TV I thought it would be amazing. The atmosphere was pretty cool. It definitely wasn't horrible, I just thought it would be so much more. My husband smokes better brisket on our Traeger

Rudy's is one of my favorite 3 BBQ places I frequent. They have mastered the art of serving good BBQ to the masses. I highly recommend the smoked turkey.

The BBQ brisket is out of this world. Not to mention, the "creamed corn", ifresh homade; I've never had any better!

I was in Colorado Springs for a few days and wanted some good bbq. I saw the reviews online and decided to try Rudy's bbq. The restaurant offers a lot of parking around it. The place was packed but the line moved fast. It's a place where you get in line, order, pay, get the food and sit. When it... More

Came here to meet with my cousins who live up north. They come from Texas originally so naturally barbecue was the top of their list. Now the prices are definitely up in the $10+ range but for good reason. Where else would you pick up a rack of ribs and pulled pork plus a side of coleslaw and mac n... More

We have had Rudy's in Austin, Texas many times and found the Colorado Springs restaurant compares favorably with it. The juicy brisket can't be beat.

Ate here twice during our week long visit. The brisket, turkey, and pulled pork were all great and the creamed corn is awesome. Service good, they give samples before you order and are very patient while you decide what you want. Very crowded at lunch. Good prices.

Numerous people told us this is the place for BBQ. Not sure why. It wasn't bad but we were not overjoyed. It is different. You buy the BBQ by weight, plastic dinner ware, etc. Probably great if your a chow hound and are looking for quantity. Probably won't return.

Service is pretty good here-- even with a long line on most weekends, we've never stood longer than about 10-12 min. Food is served on wax paper for meat, or styrofoam cups you pick up while in line. Lots of beverage selections in big iced bins. Seating is very rustic, with wood picnic tables inside and out, sports on tvs... More
