Whenever I'm in San Antonio and want some good BBQ fast, I go straight to Rudy's. In jest, they claim to have the 'Worst BBQ in Texas.' Catchy, no? It's worked well for them.
Their pork spare ribs are just right. Not too overcooked that the meat turns to mush when you bite into it, but definitely not tough. Perfectly done. What's so great about it and good Texas BBQ in general is that its not dripping in sauce. Good BBQ does not need sauce. However, IF you are a BBQ sauce person, Rudy's doesn't disappoint there either. Their sauce is just perfect. Not sweet and sticky and not as harsh as Southern vinegar based sauce. Aside from the spare ribs, I usually get a pound or two of brisket if I'm sharing. :) Rudy's got that down pat!
Man does not live by meat alone...Rudy's has some dang good sides! My favourites are the pinto beans and cream corn. Best cream corn I've ever tasted! Mmmm... Just thinking about Rudy's is making my mouth water... Hmmmm... I do believe Southwest Air has a non-stop to San Antonio for $49 each way. It may be time for me to pay the Lone Star State another visit!
