Went with the family for some good ole BBQ, sat on the patio which was great because the kids could be kids. They enjoyed the picnic tables & open fire. The meat was amazing. Thought the loaves of wonder white bread was kinda weird, but hey kids love it. No one cared that the kids were up and down or... More

Great bar-b-que! On my most recent visit, I heard the young lady who answers the phone speaking with a vegan about the food at this bar-b-que joint. Seriously? Who makes such calls? She told them there were baked potatoes, coleslaw, potato salad, and three bean salad available. They were insisting that she understand the difference between vegetarian and vegan. She... More

As native Texans, we've eaten outstanding BBQ all our lives. We pretty much avoid BBQ chains. However, we wanted BBQ, had never been to Rudy's, had heard about it a long time, and decided to give it a try. Once inside, there are rows of iced down beer and soft drinks. If you want one, get it. Sides are in... More

I like BBQ, and this place does it right. We placed a large take out order in advance for a family gathering. They had the order ready to go, and packed it all in a special take out tray and box with dividers to keep the sides and sauces secure. The meats were first quality, and very well prepared. I...

Wonderful barbecue, I love the brisket, turkey, sausage and chopped beef. I haven't tried the ribs yet. The stuffed baked potatoes with meat topping of choice are a huge meal, but a delightful indulgence. All the side I've had are good, especially creamed corn and pinto beans. Good desserts also. Nothing fancy in setting or service, but the great food... More

You can depend on Rudy's to serve delicious barbecue! We saw one in New Braunsfels and stopped for a bite. The beef brisket Special Cut was lean and very tasty. The cole slaw was flavorful. I love Rudy's barbecue. You can count on them to serve well prepared food.

I had previously enjoyed Rudys on several occasions but the last two visits have not been favorable. We had family in town and took some baby back ribs, brisket, sausage and turkey home for everyone to enjoy. Well we didn't enjoy it. While it looked good the ribs were not done and chewy and the meat stuck to the bone.... More

Rudy's is a favorite of ours; whether its breakfast tacos to get us going in the morning, or a party pack for a large group. The sides are really good too - highly recommend the creamed corn.

The brisket was really dry and the ribs weren't that great to! On the bright side, the corn cream is really tasty, but we weren't there for the side dishes. Some friends told us it was delicious and we were truly dissapointed, there are a lot of best bbqs, and better prices!

We decided to try this place after a local told us it was the best and most authentic bbq in the area. He wasn't kidding! The brisket and sausages were amazing! The ribs could've stayed on the grill a few minutes longer and the flavor could've been bolder, but the cream corn more than made up for it! It was... More
