Rudy's BBQ Del Rio Reviews
Jan 02, 2008
In 1989 in Leon Springs, a small community in the Texas hill country, right outside of San Antonio. A star was born, The name of this star was Rudy's "Country Store" & Bar-B-Q, Rudy's for short. Self proclaimed the "worst bar-b-q" actually nothing more than a sales gimmick, in fact probably the best bar-b-q place ever!
This week Rudy's opened it's doors here in Del Rio, TX. Now 20 some odd stores in Texas and even one in Oklahoma. So, today (Jan. 11) on his way home from work my husband stopped off at Rudy's to bring home what we believe to be the best bar-b-q in Texas! Rudy's sells it's food in the form of a meat market in other words you buy in bulk. One pound of brisket, 1/2 pound of ribs, one serving of jalapeno sausage, 1 pint of Rudy's famous creamed corn, and another pint of their peach cobbler is what he brought home today! If you choose to eat there you would get your food on butcher's paper and that is how you would take it to your table, no plates served here!
One of the things I've noticed about "home town" restaurants that start expanding, is that once they begin to grow quality of food and service begins to decline. Not the case with Rudy's however, this place did not let me down the food was just as awesome as it is in the original Rudy's. If ever in this area of Texas you have to stop in at a Rudy's and by all means order their creamed corn (this is a must), the meat is all good, and don't forget to add their own bar-b-q sauce which comes in "original" and " sissy" style.
Oh and before you leave if you have a long drive ahead of you can also fill your cars tank here as well!
Part of the list got the border town blues?
