I've been to many bbq places across the country and this ranks in my top 5. Down home country place, walk thru the line with very friendly servers. Excellent creamed corn, beans and peach cobbler to die for. We had the brisket, pork ribs and baby back ribs. Tasted sample of the smoked turkey. The food is awesome. A real... More

This is Rudy's original location, and the smokehouse atmosphere is authentic. The food costs more than it did 20+ years ago, but it's excellent. Be sure to try the short ribs, brisket and several of the delicious side dishes. Sit back and enjoy!

We went here in April with my daughter (1.5) and husband. The service was fast, you order your food and as you tell them what you want it is being prepared for you. By the time you pay everything is on a tray for you. We got brisket, sausage, cream corn, beans, bread, peach cobbler, 3 beers, a water for... More

Brisket was fall apart good, ribs melted in your mouth and of course the creamed corn was delicious. Last minute add of their own sausage was a great choice for an unbelievably good smorgasbord.

I lived in San Antonio for a couple years. Whenever friends/family would come to visit, Rudy's was always one place we had to eat ate. Brisket, sausage, and oh that sweet cream corn! Everything is delicious!

Easy off and on I-10 for takeout or you can eat in the western rustic dinning room. They are famous for their BBQ sauce and their food is good. Be prepared for a traffic problem if you go during rush hour.

There is no secret. If you wonder where the locals go this is it. You can eat inside or outside. It's extremely casual dining. I recommend all the choices except the chopped bbq brisket, instead go with the sliced bbq. The bbq turkey is heavenly! We were offered a sample of creamed corn and it was so good we picked... More

Rudy's has always been a great BBQ place to stop by for take out or eating in. Always welcomed when entering the service line and get ready for a sample of the cream corn. People love it but I'm not personally a fan but do prefer their pinto beans and potatoe salad. Your can get your brisket 'lean or moist'... More
