Rudy’s BBQ. It’s hands down my favorite BBQ joint. I would get a job there if they would pay me in MEAT. When I saw the sign from the highway saying they were building one here in Colorado Springs I almost had convulsions. The beautiful smoked meat here in Colorado? I don’t have to go to Texas to get my BBQ fix?! Now the question on everyone’s mind is……..could the Colorado Springs store ever live up to the Texas original?
The answer is this….YES! It was everything I remembered it to be and more. The ribs were falling off the bone, the turkey and brisket were tender and juicy. I loved it! Plus it’s only 15 minutes from my house. MAJOR BONUS!!
However the employees are a little green. The cashier was a little flustered at my fluent insider knowledge of Rudy’s lingo. He kept giving me strange looks as I shouted, half a hottie (jalapeno sausage), half lean (half a pound of lean brisket), etc. They’ve only been open a week so I’ll cut the poor guy some slack.
In conclusion: TK SAYS EAT MEAT AT RUDY’S AND YOU TOO WILL KNOW THE POWER OF THE DARK SIDE. AHHH…I MEAN THE CARNIVORE SIDE.
P.S. Samantha and Queen Vee,
Put this on your to do list for your upcoming visits to Colorado. You won’t be sorry.
