If you've visited Texas, you haven't had Rudy's, you're really missing out. This place although slightly expensive (a little over $20 for 2 people) makes up for it with a inviting atmosphere. Most of the seating is at long wooden outdoor (under a porch roof) tables. Upon walking in, you enter a queue, but don't let the line fool you, they move very quickly. With any new customer they whip out a piece of wax paper and offer samples of the spread for you to decide between their briskets, turkey, ribs, and sides. Whatever you choose, you order by the weight amount you want (I'm a light eater, and typically just get 1/4 lb and a side, but the BF goes for the 1/2 lb). From there, they put your order into a crate and hand you a nice stack of white bread, and off you go. Their BBQ sauce is amazing, not too hot, but not too sweet either. If you go, try their cream corn. You won't regret it!
