About Us

We’re More Than Your Average Pork and Beef Joint!

Here at Rudy’s Smokehouse, we pride ourselves on going a step further than simply providing our customers with incredibly tasty food. Our menu may be packed with eye-popping options for everyone’s taste buds, but our team is even more jam-packed with an unparalleled community spirit that sets us apart as more than your average barbecue restaurant.

We’ve combined the unique flavors and ingredients of states like Alabama, Georgia, and the Carolinas with our one-of-a-kind Ohio twist. And as we’ve maintained the traditions of Old Hickory Pit Smokers and handmade care, we’ve also started our own traditions as a community organizer and weekly contributor to local charities in the Springfield area.

We believe that soul food is only as good as the souls who create it, which is why we strive each and every day to foster Christian altruism that puts customers way ahead of profits. We understand how everyday people need an affordable lunch and dinner option that’s fun for the whole family, and when you come into Rudy’s, you can count on having a restaurant experience that both your belly and wallet will enjoy!

More About Our Founder

Rudy Mosketti

Rudy is a Vietnam War veteran who has served our country with the utmost pride and respect, and he has since translated his veteran values into being a restaurateur. With over 40 years of restaurant experience, Rudy was primed and ready to start his own business back in 2005. And with the support of his faith and belief in God’s destined path, Rudy’s Smokehouse has turned into one of the top barbecue restaurants in Central Ohio.

But Rudy’s Smokehouse wouldn’t have necessarily made to where it is today without Mosketti’s dedication to Christian values, which have made him a very unique business owner. Over the years, Rudy has raised thousands of dollars for local charities by donating half of the restaurant’s earnings every Tuesday, and Springfield locals simply can’t get enough of his menu that provides professionals and families with a spot to eat world-class barbecue at affordable prices.

And Rudy is the type of guy who you’ll see at the restaurant on a regular basis. He genuinely loves to get in touch with all his customers and learn more about the local Springfield community. So if you see Rudy while dining out with us, feel free to give him a shout and introduce yourself. He can’t wait to meet you and your family!

Authentic Barbecue

Inspired By The American South

The heart of Rudy’s menu is top-quality pulled pork, smoked turkey and beef brisket sandwiches, but we also offer a wide variety of chicken, catfish and rib options that give our customers that extra kick of variety when they’re looking to mix things up. All our meats are smoked low and slow to create the perfect combination of tender flavors, and our traditional side dishes are exactly what you’d find along rural highways in the likes of Lexington, North Carolina or Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

We also offer an affordable lunch special on weekdays, which is a huge hit amongst both Springfield locals and I-70 travelers. And when you’re in need of feeding a group, our comprehensive family packs have you covered with a variety of options that serve anywhere from 4-24 people.

And what’s even better is that we’ll deliver directly to you, and our catering services can support parties of any size. So you don’t need to worry about cooking up a storm the next time you’re hosting a party, because we’re here to help make your next event easier and more affordable!
