We often find some incredible barbecue places win in Texas, this is no exception. There are probably lots of great places for barbecue in Waco, but this was spectacular. If you’re looking for something extremely casual, do you have some good barbecue, this is the...More

If you want authentic BBQ, go where the locals eat. We almost skipped this place because it looked like a gas station. Once you enter and smell what is cooking, you will know that Rudy's is legit.

Rudy's is my MUST go place when visiting Texas! Try the turkey, mouth watering. We tried ribs at many other places, the Rudy's were the favorite for all in our party. Don't forget your veggies- Cream corn is delicious.

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.

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.
