Rudy's BBQ - The best!

Actually, I think that it is terrible. The brisket is freakishly tender, but there is no smoke ring or much of a char - do they boil or steam the briskets? It reminds me of bad backyard BBQ where someone wraps an entire brisket in foil.

Also, the rub on the ribs is incredibly salty, and they are unusually expensive.

Do any of you real BBQ afficionados like Rudy's?

  1. The only good one I have found is the original Rudy's in Leon Springs, just outside San Antonio.

    1. worst. sides. ever.

      1. I agree with frank that the best one BY FAR is the one out in Leon Springs. My sister lives just down that road and when it still was just one guy (and not a Cisco franchize) it was amazing bbq and the sides were quite good. alas, the corporate monster gobbled him up.

        I do like the turkey at the franchize Rudy's tough. Actually, it's the only bbq joint where I do like the turkey.

        yup, worst....sides......ever...bleck.

        1. The only 2 things good about Rudy's is the cream corn and smoked turkey breast, the rest doesn't even compare to Bill Miller's.

                        2 lb. frozen corn
                        8 oz. cream cheese
                        4 oz. butter
                        2 tbsp. sugar
                        1/4 cup heavy cream
                        salt and pepper to taste

                2. Actually they built one in Corpus and our family loved most of the food there, especially the Brisket. we think it was way better than Bill Millers or Millers.

                  1. I agree that their meat may not be the best, but I do love their BBQ sauce. I am not a huge fan of the overly sweet and smoky sauce that most places tend to serve. Rudy's sauce is more on the vinegar and peppery side than most.

                    1. I've always found a nice smoke ring and char on the brisket. Have you tried ordering the "Extra Moist" off-menu brisket...I agree that it may be a little freakishly tender but I'm okay with that. The Extra Moist is nice and greasy with a great pink smoke ring and it always has good bits of char. Their St. Louis-style ribs are fantastic and the dry rub gives it just the right kick. What we've found to be really good is bringing our own bottles of Salt Lick sauce (Original and Spicy) and using it with Rudy's brisket....favorite location is definitely the one on 360 in Austin. Frisco location is the only one close by in Dallas, so it holds me over till I can get to Austin.
