I was introduced to this place by my son who drives an ambulance and they always stopped in while on shift. It is a funny place attached to a gas station which makes you wonder at first, but it is VERY popular. During the weekends...More

Central Texas style barbecue being my favorite kind of barbecue and knowing Rudy’s is Texas based, I couldn’t resist giving them a try. Although not as good as some I’ve had in Texas, I wasn’t disappointed. The brisket was moist, the ribs and sausage were...More

The chicken is fantastic, the corn on the cob fresh, and the other sides are great too. The line moves quickly and it is worth the wait!

Rudy’s is my favorite restaurant. I came across Rudy’s in Colorado Springs by mistake and was quite happy to have found it. The food tastes identical to the Rudy’s in Albuquerque. The extra lean brisket is the best! The prices are reasonable and the staff...More

Great food, great atmosphere. One of my favorites for a chain type restaurant. Might also want to try Bird Dog Barbeque for a more local favorite. Cheaper and as good of food, not as fancy.

My guess is they sell it by the pound because a rack of ribs can vary from 1.5 to 3 pounds depending on a bunch of variables. I have never ordered a full rack, but using that range then at Rudy's a full rack of baby back... More
