Dia de Rudy’s: Houston Recap

By chet | June 21, 2016

In case you missed it, a few weeks ago we did the unthinkable…we ate at ALL SIX Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-Q locations around Houston in one glorious (and crazy) day! To everyone who came out for “Dia de Rudy’s” in Houston on May 21, thanks for meating with us! We loved hanging out with y’all and eating all that delicious food!

Mmm, there’s nothing like the smell of BBQ at 9 in the morning! We started the day at the Spring, TX location with breakfast tacos and met a bunch of awesome folks.


From there it was on to the Tomball, TX location for a nice brunch of spicy sausage.


And not even bumper-to-bumper traffic could stop us from having a lunch of ribs at the Houston, TX location and a second lunch of chopped beef in Katy, TX.

We met so many awesome folks and had an amazing turn out across the six locations. Some of the folks made pretty awesome signs, like this one we saw at the Webster, TX location.

To end the day, we headed to the Richmond, TX location at 3:30 p.m. for an awesome dinner of prime rib and we watched the premiere of the Richmond episode.


In addition to the awesome Rudy’s swag that we gave folks who won our Bingo challenge and the $50 Rudy’s gift cards we gave to everyone who made it to all six locations, we also gave out a BIG Grand Prize at the end of the day. Using the playing cards folks collected at each location, we played a game of 5-card stud for a $250 Rudy’s gift card. Congratulations to our winner Bryan, who won with a full house!


Shout out to the 19 of the folks that were brave (and crazy) enough to join us at ALL SIX LOCATIONS. If you ever need to know what to get at Rudy’s, ask these guys because they are now Rudy’s experts.


We had such a blast that we can’t wait to do it again! Thank you so much for joining us on this meaty trek and thanks to Rudy’s for having us!
