I love Rudy's BBQ! I asked the person at counter if they had butter or margarine for the baked potatoes(due to being lactose intolerant) and he said it was margarine. Unfortunately it was butter. I got sick from having the lactose. Please let your staff know that you're serving butter and not margarine. It makes a huge difference when you're... More

Don't expect salad or a lot of veggies, this is meat and barbque food plain and simple. Smoked for hours the beef melts in your mouth. If you want the prime rib on the weekend get there very very early or it's gone. Try the peach cobbler for desert you won't regret it. Come hungry or take it home with... More

My husband and I tried Rudy's on the advice of a friend in Texas. I got the pulled Pork sandwich and my husband got the brisket. Mind you, I am not a huge fan of BBQ, but I enjoyed my sandwich very much and I know my husband liked his brisket since he ate it all. We also got two... More

I love going to Rudy's! The food is excellent and the service is fast / friendly. I tried the smoked turkey taco for the first time today--highly recommend! The banana pudding is a must, for me, reminds me of the version my Mom used to make. Enjoy!

I was visiting and some of the locals brought me here. Basically you order at the counter and they prepare your food right in front of you. I was a bit overwhelmed when it came to deciding because many things sounded great. I chose a smoked baked potato (includes cheese, sour cream, and butter), a cup of green chili stew,... More

The meat doesn't taste like BBQ. The ribs were so dry as if they had been under a heat lite all day. We have ordered from there before, and it was pretty good. Today not good at all. No one in our party enjoyed it.

We were pleasantly surprised. First of all, being from NC we were very happy that they had GOOD sweet tea, which has been hard to find here in NM. The sides were SO good, the cream corn - amazing. The red potatoes - yum. I just wish they had some type of corn bread or hush puppies. Peach cobbler was... More

This place has good BBQ. Sampled the turkey and brisket. Full of flavor and delicious. Sauce on all the tables and friendly staff. From couples to groups this is a great spot.

After living in the area for 4 years, we made our first visit to Rudy's. Smells divine! Just like a smokehouse should. The menu is easy to follow, however ordering cornbread is not an option. We ordered pulled pork and brisket, both were quite flavorful. The potato salad is tasty, with a hint of a bite to it. My husband... More
