Fantastic as always. Rudy's is the best BBQ. Ever. Especially the original location. Though you might be tempted to only order the delicious brisket and sausage, but don't pass up the turkey. It's should not be missed. Also, a tip-- If you're ordering for takeout, there is a separate place to pick up in the back so you don't have to wait in the normal line. Check it out!
Inedible..Too Much Pepper on Ribs.
Ordered the Pork Ribs.. They had WAY TOO MUCH black pepper on them and we couldn't finish them. They were very bad!!
Order something else, please!
man this was my first taste of tx bbq and i fell in love. I got the ribs,brisket and turkey they were all on point. The sauce is peppery and perfectly spiced perfectly. I did not order any sides but im told the cream of corn is the best.
I went there in uniform and they automatically gave me a military discount as well as thanking for service.
I loved how when you walk in the room is full of smoke and the smell of good meats cooking. Put a big smile on my face.
Best BBQ Ever!!!1.
I was in town for business and a Riverwalk information ranger told us about Rudy's. It was easy to find, but a few miles from the RIverwalk.
By far, everything we had was the best I have had in my 55 years of travel. The brisket was moist and tender. The chopped mixture was wonderful. Just remember that the chopped is a mixture of chicken, beef and pork.
The peach cobbler and creamed corn was better than home cooked. The meat is ordered by the pound not by a plate. They even give samples as you are ordering
Now, I want to go to San Antonio just to get Rudy's BBQ.
Line up for oak-smoked barbecue greatness..
Rudy's is a "country store," which means their locations are about forty minutes from downtown: one near Sea World and the other near Fiesta Texas. While it's a bit of a drive, the food more than makes up for it. Besides, barbecue tastes better when it comes with a view of rolling Texas hills.
Excellent Ribs, Interesting Experience. The country store with a service station out front, we didn't know what to expect. The to-go line was long but the wait was brief and the food worth a wait. The baby backs were spiced with a great rub - sauce on the side (very good). Their service was fast and polite. We had some potato salad and it was also very good. Eat there or take it home, it is very good and a must for those visiting San Antonio. If you are military there is a discount as well.
Better than Bill Miller's.. Our first night in San Antonio we wanted something to eat, but we didn't want to go far from our campground. While driving into San Antonio my mom had noticed Rudy's. We decided on going there for dinner. Man, what an experience. Very friendly service and just an all around nice feel. The food was good, the prices were good, and the service was good. Rudy's is much better than Bill Miller's. Highly Recommended.
Seriously good BBQ!. I was in San Antonio for 6 days and ate at Rudy 3 nights! Your stand in line to order and you can eat inside the country store or outside on picnic beches. Their Pork Ribs and "Chopped" (turkey and brisket together a sauce that you eat on white bread) are out of this worlkd fabulous! They always give you a taste of something you didn't order.We love their creamed corn and lemonade pie,too. They serve everything in plastic crates on wax paper. No plates here! It's fun and just plain good eatin'!!
Complaint. Their food is very greasy. For the person who is conscious about "lean" or healthier choices of meat, Rudy's does not have it. Their chicken is soak overnight in big barrels of butter & heaven know what. When you ask for the brisket, it is all marbled with fat and their is no lean cuts without all the marble. Very often it is very dry and you do have to soak it in their BBQ Sauce to get it "moist". I guess that is why they sell a lot of their BBQ Sauce. The food is too expensive for the "cheap" cuts of meat!
Rudy's Country Store & Barbeque. Rudy's is the best barbeque we have found in all of our travels. It is much better than the barbeque at Salt Lick.
