Overpriced stuff that wants to be bbq. Wants me to say more but nothing more to add. Just disappointing people with overpriced food

We joined other Waco folks at picnic tables with trays of delicious beef brisket. Texas does it best! Good food, reasonable prices.

Was looking for BBQ in Waco on a Monday. The places we really wanted to try were closed, so we ended up at Rudy's. Cool atmosphere. Order at counter and take your food to table. We had pulled pork, brisket, and ribs. Ribs were ok,...More

If you want a quick place to stop right off I35 for a sandwich while driving through Waco this place would fit the bill. Get a tank if gas while your at it.

My husband is the BBQ loving guy. We asked around for BBQ recommendations and many people suggested Rudy's. The meal was good but certainly not anything memorable, even for my BBQ loving guy. Good food but nothing spectacular.

We seek them out whoever we travel in Texas, for breakfast tacos or BBQ. Never disappointed. Friendly staff. Will keep coming back.

We showed up there with 30 people! We enjoyed having the back room with the garage doors that open up onto the patio. More children than adults and everyone was happy with their meal! Awesome accommodations for families and groups. Generous portions meant we ordered...More

Some tell me that Rudy's is great in other states, but it isn't here. They charge a fortune for a tiny quantity of food that tastes tolerable at best. Anywhere has better barbeque than here, start with Vitek's.

Had not been to Texas in several years, so while working in the hospital I asked for some good BBQ just as I pulled up TripAdvisor. Both said Rudy's was the best. Easy stop right of I-35, I was a little shocked at first sight...More

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.
