All of the meat here is good, but the moist brisket is simply outstanding. Don't bother with the sandwich, just order up a couple of pounds of moist brisket and find your way to smoked meat nirvana.

My wife's beef brisket is the best ever, but I have to admit that Rudy's brisket is pretty darn close. Great atmosphere, good food and good friends. Will definitely eat here again next time I'm in Texas.

We enjoy going here on Sundays. Good bbq and ham . Enjoyed the sauces. The cream corn is excellent. Try the red potatoes. Come to think of it, sometimes I just want to eat the sides, they're so good!

Returned to Rudy's yesterday for lunch. Rudy's is consistently good barbecue. Brisket was moist with just the right amount of smoke flavor. Ribs were bit through tender and seasoned well. Service was good as always. I can always get a good meal at Rudy's.
