Had lunch with my local relatives here. A very simple self service place, but the food was absolutely delicious. Great way to try Texas BBQ.

Rudy's is always a favorite BBQ stop when in Texas and this location is just as good as all of the others. Easy to get gas before heading out of town and to fill up on some good BBQ as well.

This is my favorite sandwich. The smoked turkey is always succulent and flavorful. Their potato salad is our favorite.

Clean. Friendly. Prepared in your presence. Great tasting BBQ with extras. We do drive through also and don't feel rushed.

The brisket was pretty good.I wasn't real fond of the sausage. The prices are a bit expensive but BBQ these days is pricy anyway. Will be back at dome point. Worth a try! Their potato salad is ok too. Wish it had been homemade though....More

My son and I shared the half rack of ribs and a pulled pork sandwich. They were excellent. Also the cole slaw and beans were great, but the banana pudding was to die for! The service was great and they offered samples while we waited...More

We went to two Rudy’s locations and had the same good experience. Here I’m reviewing the one in Lubbock. It’s a franchise that can be found all around Texas, the specialty is meat, which is served by the half-pound. You order meat at the cashier,...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.
