Rudy’s Bar-BQ is delicious and we could use one in Lansing

Lansing’s culinary scene is constantly evolving. Whether it’s restaurants closing or opening, there’s always something different about what to eat in Lansing.

That being said, I think there is always room for more variety and deliciousness. That’s why I think Rudy’s Bar-BQ would be a great addition.

Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-BQ

While Rudy’s Bar-BQ originated in Texas (where many delicious barbecues come from), it’s now a chain with multiple locations in the Southwest. I had the opportunity to try it on my recent trip to Arizona.

When I was in Arizona, my goal was to eat and drink at places I had never been before (like Dutch Bros Coffee) that are not available in Michigan. Rudy’s was highly suggested by the local person I was staying with so thought I’d give it a try.

As soon as you walk in there is definitely that family feeling. There’s a candy counter at the checkout, the walls are covered in vintage signs and local sports memorabilia, and it smells like your dad’s been grilling all day.

The menu offers a multitude of smoked and grilled meats, as well as a variety of ways to enjoy them. a plate of meat, a sandwich or (my choice) on top of a giant, loaded baked potato. Plus, there are plenty of drinks, sides, and desserts to complement the rest of your meal.

I had the loaded baked potato with brisket, three bean salad, and a glass bottle of Dr. Pepper to drink, and it was all absolutely amazing. From the food to the service, I really enjoyed my experience at Rudy’s. Check out the loaded baked potato below and try not to drool on your chin.
