Had not been to Texas in several years, so while working in the hospital I asked for some good BBQ just as I pulled up TripAdvisor. Both said Rudy's was the best. Easy stop right of I-35, I was a little shocked at first sight...More

A great quick stop. This Rudy's has great BBQ, the Jalapeno sausage is great. Slice smoked Turkey is a hit!!! Sides are tasty and the sauce is tangy!!! All served up on paper!!!

Rudys and uncle dans are my favorite BBQ places in this area. I like the sauce and the potatoes. I always order extra lean brisket. Good visit.

The line appeared to be long, but we were greeted shortly by the nicest young lady. She took our order for chopped brisket and beans. She gave us ample slices of bread. She was friendly and helpful. The brisket was hot and delicious as usual.

Food and a gas station together?? But it works. I had the shredded pork sandwich. It was very good. I didn't like the red potato in butter. They should add French fries to through menu. My sister had their baked potato with brisket inside and...More

This was good bar b q, with a summer camp feel. You stand in line to order your food. The line goes by the soda in metal bins with ice. You take your food to a table or 'to-go'.

We visited Rudys for some breakfast tacos. They have some pre-made and available for grab and go, or you can have yours made to order. My favorite was a spicy chopped brisket with egg and cheese. There is ample seating inside or you can take...More

Rudy's is what I call Fast Food Chain BBQ. There is nothing special about the food and the seating is nothing to brag about. Nothing terrible, but nothing special either.

Ok, first, when you get there if this is your first visit let the person taking your order at the counter know that. They will give you a bite size sample of the cutters choice, the juicy cut and the chicken. My wife chose the...More

Just north of San Antonio, at the edge of the Texas Hill Country, sits the small community of Leon Springs. Founded in the 1800s by Max Aue, Leon Spring's cityscape changed when Max's son, Rudolph, opened a one-stop gas station, garage, and grocery store. 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. Our pits are 100% wood fired with oak, a slower burning wood than the mesquite used by others. Along with time and oak, we cook with a dry spice that ensures each plate of Rudy's Bar-B-Q is perfectly ready for you. Apply some of our famous "Sause" and dinner is served.
