We travel into Albuquerque at least once a year. RUDY'S is a must for us. Brisket is so tender. Chile stew is one thing I order so I can take it back to the hotel and put it on my eggs at breakfast.

This is certainly the best BBQ in ABQ; great staff, open seating and amazing meat! I loved the pulled pork but they’ll give you a taste of anything. If you’re jonesing for BBQ, Rudy’s is the place.
