FAYETTEVILLE — Texas-based restaurant chain Rudy’s Bar-B-Q has submitted plans to the city for a new location on the southwest side of town.

The new restaurant is being proposed at the intersection of Rupple Road and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard about a mile west of Walmart.

The plans show a 10,797-square-foot building with associated parking at the northeast corner of the intersection.

A spokesperson for the restaurant confirmed the plans, but said it’s too early to announce an opening date.

Rudy’s serves a variety of barbecue, from brisket to smoked turkey, chicken, ribs and pulled pork. Meats are sold by the half-pound — ranging from $7.49 for sausage links to $11.99 for brisket. The menu also includes sandwiches, sides, breakfast tacos and desserts.

Founded by Rudolph Aue in 1929 as a one-stop gas station, repair shop and grocery store in Leon Springs, Texas, the company added barbecue to the menu in 1989. The company has since grown to include 51 locations across Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, Florida and Arizona, according to the company’s website.
