Barbecue - First Place
Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-Q
7300 W. Chandler Blvd.
Barbecue fans can smell brisket and ribs coming from Rudy’s oak-fired ovens. Unlike mesquite-fired pits used at other barbecues, Rudy’s ovens use a slower-burning wood that, along with a special dry spice, is key to their culinary success.
The menu includes classics like baby back ribs, pork loin, brisket, pulled pork, prime rib, potato salad, coleslaw, corn-on-the-cob and green chili stew. Finish off a meal with one of Rudy’s desserts — including pudding, Rice Krispy treats, pecan and buttermilk pie or peach cobbler.
Stemming from its San Antonio gas station/grocery store roots, the restaurant leads customers through an old-time general store where they can order a full meal and enjoy the rustic atmosphere.
