Do not dress up. This is a very local, very laid back place with EXCELLENT barbecue. Mostly locals were there. Good sign. We had to wait in line to place our family style order. Normally I do not like lines. Rudy's has troughs of beer...More

After travelling to San Antonio for years and looking for something more than the River Walk I found the original Rudy's. Well worth the drive. Took my Boss yesterday, we both left smiling. Good Q. Good sides.

I wanted to like Rudy's and I did, but it's nothing special. It's BBQ, and it's good, but not great. It's also pretty expensive. I didn't like that everything is sold by weight. So if you want to try a few different things the price...More
