We are bbq snobs. We have eaten at many of the top 50 from the TM list. This Rudy's moist brisket holds its own with the best. Tender, smokey, and SALT AND PEPPER rub. Sides are ok but who needs sides with great bbq? Dan...More

Order at a counter and wait for your food. Sit at long tables and make new friends. No frills, just good food. Prices reasonable. Family friendly. Don't miss Rudy's if you are in Waco.

The BBQ is always good, time after time. It is great to eat there or bring home. The wait time sometimes looks long but it moves fast. This is my go-to place when I’m hungry for BBQ. The creamed corn is very good! The BBQ...More

I love their “wet brisket” and jalapeño sausage. Great flavor! Decent sides but not a lot of options for sides. Kids enjoy the food as well.

Recently went to Rudy's in Waco (I'm told they are a Texas chain) and was very pleased with the quality of the food. We sampled the bbq turkey, brisket, and sausage - all were tender, moist and flavorful. The prices were reasonable and the atmosphere...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.
