Trip to Houston, June 2016: Rudy's Country Store & Bar-B-Q

>> Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Any day is a good day for some barbecue pork ribs, eh? Couple it with a nice, cold bottle of beer/soda, I think it'll make the end of your work day one that's relaxing enough to keep you satisfied 'til you tuck into bed for the night's rest.

In this final post of the Houston trip (yes, apologies that it took me so long to complete things these days), I would like to share with you my experience at Rudy's, a fast-food style BBQ restaurant that sells delectable pork & beef ribs, sausages, sandwiches & more!

My dinner for that evening...couldn't finish that gigantic smoked potato!

Try their BBQ sauce as well or enjoy your meats with hot & spicy peppers sauces 

I went to the branch of Rudy's at the Tomball Parkway area. It's a typical southern-looking ranch-like-restaurant that serves what the southerns do best, barbecues!

The skyline on that evening was extremely beautiful! No filter!

As you enter the restaurant, you'll find yourself greeted by a mini convenience store like area on your left, where you can purchase chips & snacks to accompany your meal at Rudy's.

Walking further up, you'll find a canteen-style area to order your food. As it was my 1st time there, I was quite lost as to what I should do...hahaha. All you need to do is to grab a bottle of drink of your choice, be it beer or soda or juice (I think they have that too), then pick your side dish from the chiller (optional) before ordering your hot food at the counter.

Plenty of choices - some by weight, which you can determine according to your level of hunger :P
As this is a BBQ restaurant, I had 1/2 lb of pork ribs & as a sucker for potatoes, I ordered their jumbo smoked potato as well! You can actually order more or less than 1/2 lb of ribs. It's all up to you, just like purchasing meat/ham over the meat section of the supermarket.

I have to say that I enjoyed the juicy & flavorful pork ribs although as usual, I find Texan flavors slightly too salty for my liking. I love it that the meat was tender & succulent & has that smokey, charred charcoal taste on the crust of the ribs.

The potato, on the other hand was slightly too heavy to compliment my dinner that evening. Flavors were a little bland with just cheese & sour cream for taste. I think you'll need to share this with 2-3 persons... 

Here are some photos of how the restaurant looks like. It's a weekday & probably too late by the time I took the photos to see the dinner crowd.

You can sit outside as well, especially if you would like to have a ciggy...

Love the view that evening. On one side, it was really blue, on another, it was greyish with hues of red, orange & yellow. Oh, so lovely! 

I would say that Rudy's is a nice place for some good dose of Texan BBQ ribs & more. I wouldn't mind going there again. Prices are affordable for the portion served as well, so I'm pretty satisfied to have my meal there ;)
