I love good BBQ, but this place is mediocre at best. I've been to Rudy's in Albuquerque as well, and the food is not bad, but it's not great either. I had the brisket and pork, and both seemed very fatty. I know in brisket...More

It was our first time there. We drove up from Tucson to purchase a puppy for my wife. Her favorite Diamondbacks baseball player, Paul Goldschmidt was quoted as saying Rudy's was one of his favorite places to eat. Not surprising since Rudy's originated in Texas...More

The complaints I see about Rudy's seem to come from folks that have never been in a Texas style BBQ joint. It is rough around the edges and you sit at wood tables with few amenities, this is not Chez Pierre's foo-foo house so get...More

First time stopping here and was rather disappointed with the food. The staff was very friendly and helpful, even giving us samples of all the meats when we told them this was our first time there. The meats were smoked, but there wasn't much flavor...More

My husband was craving bbq but Little Miss Bbq was closed on Monday. So we checked online for suggestions. Rudy's sounded good but turned out to be a disappointment. The lean brisket was tough. The potato salad was average. The green chili stew was a...More

Typical Rudy's experience - they are growing and it's no wonder why. Good quality meat and sides, fast and courteous service. Better BBQ may be available at a favorite local spot, but Rudy's is reliably good no matter where you find it.

I've been here before for the BBQ which was good. This time I bought some breakfast burritos. They are small so I had to buy two. The tortillas were soggy. But the burritos were bland - just egg and meat. I wouldn't recommend it.

We've been not only to Rudy's in Chandler but also the one in west El Paso, Texas. We've never been disappointed with Rudy's. No matter if we get brisket or ribs they're always great. Love the informal seating. The sides are really good too. Rudy's...More

Rudy's is always gracious in letting my group use a side room. It gets a bit noisy in the main dining area. Probably because everyone is talking about how good their food is!

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.
