This was my fav place for BBQ by far. The food was sooooo good. We told them we that we had not been there before and they gave us all kinds of samples to try. It was the BEST BBQ meat I have ever tasted. We got the turkey and the beef and the creamed corn side.... wow!! I highly... More

I do not normally like bbq at a chain restaurant but Rudy's has it cooked right. Well smoked, tender meats with good side dishes. Rudy's has figured out to have multiple locations and still serve great bbq. We tried the pork, chicken, brisket and pork ribs. All were very good. Good potato salad too. We ate dinner here on a...

First time here. Staff was great. Food was pretty decent. Little spicy for our family's taste but I can see why it was popular. Fast in and out and plenty of selection. Tried the brisket (favorite), ribs (ok...not great) and pulled pork (yummy). Not a big fan of the beans but I did like the potato salad. Loved the beverage... More

Wife and I recently in New Braunfels. Saw Rudy's early in the visit and decided to go there for lunch the next day before heading back to Houston. We are familiar Rudy's and there is one near where we live. I usually order the sausage sandwich; wife gets the chicken sandwich; we both get sides and share a dessert. Very... More

We came here as a family and daughter's boyfriend's family. The food was excellent and the service was fine! It was not crowded so we could enjoy visiting and hearing each other talk! All the restaurants in San Marcos were packed. This was worth the drive! We will be back! We even took some food home!! Yum yum!

Smoked turkey is the best - friendly Texas folks and no plates! How could you ask for more? Atmosphere is just like eating at the ranch! If you like pecan pie - personal size - get that to finish up your meal!

Order the moist brisket. It is so delicious. Also, if you love cream corn theirs is really good. Also, Rudy's is very generous in their community involvement.

I picked up some sliced moist brisket and sliced turkey breast and a couple smoked baked potatoes. Everything was great. 2 comments: one potato was much larger than the other...luck of the draw. The extra-large potato was good but the other, regular sized potato was more tender...I'll have to do more research on that. Also, found an excellent meat slicer... More

Love Rudys!! Never disappoints. We had pulled pork, smoked sausage, moist brisket, baby back ribs, and the smoked turkey. We also had the banana pudding which is a nice compliment to the BBQ. The pulled pork was incredible and the brisket was perfect. Loved the flavor of the sausage. The service is excellent and cannot wait to return. A great... More
