Clean, friendly, and very tasty! Had the pulled pork and a side of green beans. And even a cold beer!! Super convenient off the interstate as I was traveling-beats fast food any day! Highly recommend!

A co-worker and I went to Rudy's because we heard it was good. We were on a business trip to Springfield and decided to stop there for lunch.

Uninspired beef brisket. Barely a smokey tinge to the chunked meat presented on a dry falling apart bun. Sauce was unremarkable. Sides were run of the mill. Friendly folks. Not sure I will return. Was disappointed after reading all the positive trip advisor reviews.

Coming back from a horse show in Columbus, we decided to stop someplace to eat something. We were looking for someplace that was not a chain restaurant. We came across Rudy's Smokehouse, and oh, boy, it didn't disappoint!! Being originally from Texas, I am pretty picky about my BBQ. I decided on the brisket sandwich and baked potato. You can...

Every thing I tried there was the one of the best tasting whatever I had ever had. From the chicken wings with sweet bbq sauce, to the sweet potatos and cornbread. Highly recommended.

We stopped in here for lunch on Sunday and was pleasantly surprised to find out that they offer an all you can eat buffet on Sunday! Pulled pork, brisket, chicken and all the sides you can think of! Best bbq we've had in a long time! So, so good! Glad we found this place.

The ribs were some of the best I've had. We all enjoyed our dinner, we had wings, boneless wings, pork sandwich, ribs. The sides were good, greenbeans way to salty
