The best barbecue in Houston! Flavorful and tender! The line could extend out pass the rail, but it's worth the wait!

I first started enjoying Rudy's bar-b-que when I would visit my daughter at UT in Austin Tx. I was excited when they opened a location in Houston. They serve sides like potato salad, beans, corn etc but in Houston make no mistake about we eat there for the delicious tender smoked meats. My favorite is the moist brisket but I... More

The food is very flavorful at Rudy's. Many options of meat with great sides. Most of the menu is gluten free as well and they have an index that lets you know about most allergens.

Invited my friends from Alabama when they stopped in to visit me. They loved it, Also, the fact that they cater to Gluten free was a plus.

There are quite a few Rudy's in town, and the good thing is that all of them are the same and the food tastes entirely alike in any of their locations. Corn on the Cob flavor varies from season to season.

This is a Texas BBQ place with no pretensions -- plain, simple and busy. And as such is very good. Was packed and busy. Happy atmosphere. Paper wrapped food to spread out on wooden tables with bench seating and enjoy. Brisket is the speciality. Good value. Not fancy, but fun. Great for kids. A bit complicated for first-timers if you...

My husband and I had a layover in Houston and decided to try a BBQ restaurant. What a find! Loved the concept, so casual and fun! You tear off big strips of paper to eat off of on big long tables. We had the moist brisket, ribs and jalapeño smoked sausages, All DELICIOUS! We also loved the sides...they have corn... More

Everyone else gave accurate reviews, however you can order any amount, not just even increments. First time samples helped immensely. Pork loin too dry, pulled pork too sweet, Turkey, just right. Moist and fat free. Loud country music was not tops in my list. Parking lot always crowded. Everything is ala carte, so it can get pricey. Pluses are quick... More
