Saw reviews for Rudy's and weren't sure if we made the right choice. Went in and so glad we did. Long line moved quickly and then you get to order your BBQ by weight. Lovely girl took the time to explain the various brisket and let us sample the tastes. Sat at a picnic table and enjoyed. Would definitely return... More

This was my first time here. I called ahead with a large order for work, and it was ready when I arrived. The bags were labeled well so we'd know which were brisket, beans, etc. The spicy bbq sauce was pretty good. I'd definitely go back for lunch and dinner.

Servers ALWAYS ask if you have eaten with them before. If you have not, then they will offer you samples of the meats on the menu. This is a very basic, down to earth place, frequented by hurried lunch diners, peace officers, etc. Iced tea is good, menu is limited so service is fast and extras such as onion, dill... More

We go regularly to Rudy's. We love their Smoked Turkey, pork ribs and brisket. Normally not a coleslaw fan, however Rudy's slaw is very light and tasty.

I know many people have their preferences on BBQ, as do I. At first I wasn't impressed with going to a chain restaurant for this type of food, but they are so consistent and have really good brisket! The service tops it all... I usually just call in a few pounds of food and it is ready when I get... More

The BBQ sauces make this beef, pork, and chicken have that special taste. Not a bad price for BBQ. Overall, a good place to bring your family.

Great BBQ! The meat is the main show stopper. Any of the many smoked and BBQ meat items are great. Sides are simple country fare, nothing as show stopping as the turkey, smoked sausage, or brisket. I do like the creamed corn. And their own brand of BBQ sauce is great.

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.
