Where else can you enjoy the BBQ ribs, & chicken while seated at a picnic table not far (but far enough) from the auto gas pumps? Apparently, this is all part of the Rudy's famous history and Texas experience. The friendly staff and good food are well worth the visit. Try the creamed corn.

Amazing bbq- It was so good, I went back the next day! Had the lean brisket with beans one day, potato salad the next. They gave me a taste of the 'chop' which had great flavor- the bbq sauce (hot and not) were just right. Same w/the sample of the famous creamed corn, yum! They give a discount to all... More

This is pretty darn good, very tasty, yummy, but nowhere near the best. I wouldn't avoid it but wouldn't go out of my way to get some. The creamed corn, on the other hand, is a different story. I could eat a gallon of that stuff! Becoming very much like any other chain but still very good.

Neat building away from the big city. Multiple dining areas, both inside and out. We ate outside on the edge of the parking lot. They have lean brisket, fatty brisket, turkey (super moist and smokey without the sauce), pork ribs, beef ribs, sausage, and maybe pulled pork and ham. Pick your sides from sweet corn, pinto beans, cole slaw, potoato... More

Casual. Order at the counter: choose the meat, side & dessert (only peach cobbler). The cream corn is very very good. We enjoyed the ribs turkey & brisket. A good place to go for good BQ

For the price and convenience, I have yet to eat better BBQ. Outside of driving to Luling, Rudy's is the best place to grab some authentic Texas BBQ. I have also noted they have good consistency between locations, assuring me a tasty meal whenever & wherever I stop by.

Rudy's catered our unit picnic today. Set up/service was good to handle the crowd. The food I got to eat was OK (turkey breast was dry...). 30 minutes into the feeding, they ran out of beef brisket (we are in Texas...), and an hour in, they're out of food. With their reputation, I thought that they would've come better prepared... More

The moist brisket stars here. Slaw and corn are also good. Fast food that was smoked for hours. At a gas station. You will go again and again.

Good BBQ. The best part was the creamed corn. It was the best I've ever had! The peach cobbler, however, was very disappointing. The peaches were definitely canned, not fresh. The seats are uncomfortable metal chairs. Next time, I'll take the food to go.

We loved dining in this fun, no frills restaurant. They have a large seating area inside or out - great place for larger groups. The food is served family style. We had brisket and turkey - both excellent. The best thing on the menu is their creamed corn! Fun, relaxing meal.

Thank Shirley D
