This foid was the vest on our trip! And the price was rediculously inexpensive for all the delicious varieties of BBQ meat we had. A...mazing! Best BBQ EVER!

Consistently good Texas barbecue. I always get the brisket because that's classic Texas barbecue. You eat at picnic tables, but that's not unusual for barbecue from Lockhart west.

Rudy's catered an event we attended and the food was the same as you would receive at Rudy's restaurant (very good). The staff were extremely friendly and attentive to keeping the serving dishes full and the lines moving.

Overpriced stuff that wants to be bbq. Wants me to say more but nothing more to add. Just disappointing people with overpriced food

We joined other Waco folks at picnic tables with trays of delicious beef brisket. Texas does it best! Good food, reasonable prices.

Was looking for BBQ in Waco on a Monday. The places we really wanted to try were closed, so we ended up at Rudy's. Cool atmosphere. Order at counter and take your food to table. We had pulled pork, brisket, and ribs. Ribs were ok,...More

If you want a quick place to stop right off I35 for a sandwich while driving through Waco this place would fit the bill. Get a tank if gas while your at it.

My husband is the BBQ loving guy. We asked around for BBQ recommendations and many people suggested Rudy's. The meal was good but certainly not anything memorable, even for my BBQ loving guy. Good food but nothing spectacular.

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.
