Rudy's Country Stores are all over the place. I have visited them several places. The BBQ is OK but nothing spectacular but here is a tip. You can buy a chopped beef sandwich in the cafe part and spend $6-7 for it or you can buy the same chopped beef sandwich (prepackaged) in the gas station side for $3. That... More

I think this like a real Texan restaurant and we loved it, just simple and good food! Cozy place and cool decoration what you expect in a place like this! Love the Cowl salad, took a sandwich with Pulled Pork and the Brisket (never heard of Brisket) and it was delicious. Would go back here. Much deserved the 5 star... More

Having never been to a BBQ place like this I had no idea what to get! I went with the brisket and took suggestions from the staff regarding the sides. It all worked out as the brisket was fantastic and the sides were great too.

We had dinner with friends and found this place to be a great place to gather and enjoy some wonderful bbq! Great selection of sides, local beverages and a relaxed atmosphere. And the Brisket was some of the best I've ever had! We loved it!!!

This is consistently good barbeque - not great, but good. The restaurant is clean, the restrooms are clean - all things good to know if you're travelling and spot one of these. The creamed corn is good, but very caloric. The slice turkey is good, not dry, and has some flavor. You have a choice of sauces on the table,... More

I had the stuffed potato with Turkey and Brisket, but you really can't go wrong, It's all good. The smoked meats are juicy and delicious! The creamed corn and potato salad are great too.....Everything we had was great!

I thought the food here was fresh and very tasty. I'm glad I stopped here for lunch! It was a pleasant surprise. I was able to choose several types of meat in the amount I wanted. I would certainly stop here again!

I'm part of a BBQ eating club and I've tried BBQ from all over the country. Rudy's is one of my favorites. I have to admit that I have eaten better, more flavorful BBQ elsewhere, but Rudy's has a few things that make it worth dining. It is consistently good, they have exceptional sauce (especially the spicy sauce), and one... More

I had the moist brisket and smoked turkey which were both great. You can order deli style with sides for a reasonable price. The seating is at a picnic table and has a folksy atmosphere. If you like the BBQ then you can buy the sauce or rubs on your way out the door.

First let's talk about the huge, smoked potato with a flavorful, smokey taste in every bite. Then they add some sour cream, butter and cheese. Not an overwhelming amount because that would mute the flavor of the potato. You can enjoy it just like that or you can choose the protein of your mouth's desire. For me.... that will always...
