Rudys is an ala carte BBQ palace. Order upfront, waot for order so quickly to your table. Its 8 out 10 taste. Brisket is fabulous. Baby back, although meaty, lack a full flavor smoke taste. Great ambience, picnic table seating.

This place has all kind of bar b que and sides but each is individually priced so it can get expensive.

We are long-time customers of Rudy's in Leon Springs, so when I needed gas while visiting Corpus, I saw their gas pumps and thought I'd get some gas there. I racked up over $12 really quick before I noticed the price: $2.459 per gallon, when everyone else in Corpus was around $2.099. I guess it's always "Buyer Beware", but I'm... More

I can't say enough about this place right from the time you walk through the doors. You are greeted and asked if you have been there before. If not, they give you samp,es of their different meats. You grab your own drinks, deserts if you like and salad as well if you choose. You place your order, and when out... More

I do love Bar-b-Que so was delighted to be taken to this restaurant! Amazing brisket, to die for ribs and sausage!! Creamed corn was wonderful! It's served by weight along with the requisite white bread. It's not fancy, but it sure is good!!

Have heard others talk about Rudy's and decided to give it a try. You have a choice of beef tenderloin lean or marbled. We got 1/2 pound of the lean beef for $7.19. You get the meat sliced on butcher paper for carry-out. There were about 11 or 12 thin slices. The meat was very tender. You can get bread... More

Rudy's is a BBQ chain, you can find them all-around Texas. This specific location has great friendly staff and if it's nice outside they open the shutters for a nice breeze. They sell the meat by weight and have plenty of sides. We tried their jalapeno sausage,moist and lean brisket, you can ask for as many slices of bread as... More

This was our first visit to a Rudy's, but it won't be our last. The manager (we assume) greeted us, gave us the "tour" and the staff gave us samples of just about everything they make. We have been to a lot of places and we have never encountered a friendlier, more helpful staff! They were just outstanding. The food... More

Mosey up to the counter and order the meat - brisket, ribs, turkey, sausage ... sides are separate. All the meat is good but brisket is still the best! Don't forget the banana pudding. And you can gas up your car in the parking lot.
