Best of City Search

"A great place to take your clients or family for a quiet lunch. The price charged reflects superior value for the quality and quantity of food. I raise my glass to Rudi for consistent and high quality food as well as surroundings."


Rudi's well stocked Salad Bar

Serving Houston for 37 Great Years Lunch & Dinner!

For more than thirty years, we are a casual, and "gemuetliches" German-Texan restaurant, that is all about Sausages, Wiener Schnitzel and great German Beer and Wine. During all this time, Rudi has enjoyed a loyal and regular following and makes each visit memorable and personal. The restaurant is for many customers "their home away from home".

On the menu there is something for everyone! Our famous Wiener Schnitzel is a delicate veal cutlet, breaded and pan-fried, or the selection of grilled Sausages:
Bratwurst, Knackwurst and Polish Sausage.

The very popular Heritage Dinner Dinner plate is a sampling of Red Cabbage, Sauerkraut, Austrian Potatoes, Sausages, Roasted Chicken, Pork Loin, Wiener Schnitzel and Sauerbraten.

At least once you have to try Rudi's Pork Shank (Eisbein or Schweinshax'n)

Enough food to feed even the hungriest Texas Cowboy!


There's an art to making good Wiener schnitzel, and chef Rudi Lechner has mastered it.

The main event of the yaer is Oktberfest, starting middle of September and lasts till the end of Oktober. We serve the excellent Spaten Oktoberfest beer on draft,

and many other draft beers nad bottled beers.

Don't wait until Oktoberfest, live German music is offered every evening from Wednesday through Saturday during the remainder of the year. Wednesday, also, is our family night with a "Oktoberfest" German sampler buffet from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm for just $15.95  per person with a large selection of German beers and schnapps.

However if you prefer a quiet evening on these days, we propose to

reserve a table in the wine room.

For your Private Parties or business meetings we offer the following facilities:

the Huntroom for 45 persons, the Wine room for 20 persons and

the Terrace (semi private) for 25 persons.

Practice your German language skills at our monthly Austian or German Stammtisch,a casual gathering for a bite and a beer, for beginners to native speakers. It's all for fun and no reservations is required.
