Restaurant Description

Okay, it's at a gas station, you have to love that.

The Meat itself is GREAT!!! It's spicy and therefore my opinion is a bit bias, 'cause I LOVE spicy. As for restaraunts, it's far from the worst but it doesn't surpass Stubb's or Earl Campbell's. For F

 Rudy's flavor profile is simple: black pepper. So, if you tend to put black pepper on everything, then you'll love Rudy's. This place really took off after Texas became the alternate living choice for Californians. I lived in CA for a few years and this is what the BBQ there tastes like. I call it the McDonald's of BBQ.

 I'll get straight to the point... skip it. Just drive the extra quarter mile to Rudy's for BBQ. Everyone raves about J's fajita meat... skip it... drive the extra half mile to Flores. Breakfast tacos are a joke. The "ham" in the ham & egg tacos... it ...

 If you like real Bar B Que don't waste your time with this place. They may have been doing it for a long time but they don't do it right. Worst I've ever tried. If the locals and others think this is good eating, they must not know what Bar B Que is ...
Mann's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que  5  out of 5 stars

 One of my top fave BBQ places, but the least expensive. Tasty, variety of choice, home-style sides, soft drinks in a bottle or fountain. This place is a throw-back to real BBQ of the 50s, before things became commercial. Brought one of my picky frien ...
