Uninspired beef brisket. Barely a smokey tinge to the chunked meat presented on a dry falling apart bun. Sauce was unremarkable. Sides were run of the mill. Friendly folks. Not sure I will return. Was disappointed after reading all the positive trip advisor reviews.

Coming back from a horse show in Columbus, we decided to stop someplace to eat something. We were looking for someplace that was not a chain restaurant. We came across Rudy's Smokehouse, and oh, boy, it didn't disappoint!! Being originally from Texas, I am pretty picky about my BBQ. I decided on the brisket sandwich and baked potato. You can...

Every thing I tried there was the one of the best tasting whatever I had ever had. From the chicken wings with sweet bbq sauce, to the sweet potatos and cornbread. Highly recommended.

We stopped in here for lunch on Sunday and was pleasantly surprised to find out that they offer an all you can eat buffet on Sunday! Pulled pork, brisket, chicken and all the sides you can think of! Best bbq we've had in a long time! So, so good! Glad we found this place.

The ribs were some of the best I've had. We all enjoyed our dinner, we had wings, boneless wings, pork sandwich, ribs. The sides were good, greenbeans way to salty

After attending a Sunday buffet, I will be sure to return. The meat was tender and juicy and you need to try the corn hash. During the buffet, certain sides are available for you to grab while others you ask your waiter for. The waiter was amazing! He was a teenage guy who worked hard and never left us hanging.... More

We love Rudy's. The location isn't the best, but the customer service and the food make up for it. Up until about a year ago, I hadn't tried the brisket. Now that I have, it's my favorite. I always get it with their chips and coleslaw. My husband gets the brisket with macaroni. Our toddler also loves the macaroni. We've... More

They have the best pulled pork and smoked turkey sandwiches! I like the coleslaw on my sandwiches! And the homemade chips are the best! Even the iced tea is good..
