Having lived in the greater Houston, TX area most of my life, it's very, very rare to find a spot outside of TX that has truly good Texas-style BBQ. Recently here on a work trip, and two separate clients asked to have Rudy's catered for lunch. It's been at least 8-9 years since I ate at the Rudy's location N... More

This place is about as anti-vegan as you can get. I think the closest thing they have to a vegetable is the potato salad. But carnivores can rejoice to their hearts content here!!! The selection of meat is amazing and all of it good. The pulled pork looks pretty unappetizing but one taste and any reservations you have about it... More

If you want bar-b-Que, this is it! Great food with traditional bar-b-Que service. Be sure to try all the sauces - lots of variety from mild to kick-butt ... and all are extraordinary!

We had a late Sunday lunch and missed the crowds. I had the baby back ribs and they were tender. Others in our group had the smoked turkey sandwich, and brisket. All very good flavors. Fun place to go with a group.

We came for an early dinner on a week night and hoped to avoid crowds. This is one popular place, they just kept coming in, mostly to-go orders but lots of sit down folks too. Great bbq meats, sides were also good. This is not a romantic place. Community type seating, lots of tables people and noise. Fast order and... More

Was in town on an extended business trip. Needed dinner and lunch for the following day. I love a barbecue place where nothing is hidden, and they like to show how it's all done. This place fit the bill admirably. I had the pulled pork, with coleslaw and beans. Ordered a half chicken for lunch the next day. Although the... More

Was flying out of Albuquerque recently and took time to stop for lunch. So glad I did..Had the "smoked baked potato" and I was the one that was "stuffed".. So much food and so very good.... Sampled several different meats and all were great... A must visit if in the area.......

Definitely has a unique ordering system, gets pretty busy during lunch, all your sides are extra and you have to know that you gotta go pick him up before you start ordering.
