Before or after (or not) filling up at the clean and shiny Shell gas pumps out front, head over and order up some moist brisket and other smoked meats. Don't forget the sides like the killer rich and thick cream corn (you can use a fork). We tried the chicken, brisket and sausage, but agreed the brisket was the best,... More

Rudy's is a fantastic BBQ restaurant. The food is fantastic. Get the moist beef and the cream corn! I also like the jalapeño sausage. Plus, they have great sweet tea, not just tea you put sugar in.

Best "Extra Moist Brisket" and "St Louis ribs" around. Love the buttered Ted New Potatoes. On the pricy side and we only get the meat.

Came in with a group. Had never been before. Instead of giving us time to look, the customer service asked us to move aside, and were a bit rude about it. The food is delicious and made up for the service. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

Went to Rudy's with friends. I can't imagine that there is anything bad on this menu. The brisket was juicy and had flavor beyond belief. If you go, be sure to ask about the welcome packet. They give a Texas sample to get you started so you know what you are in for. I'm not all about the sauce, but... More

There are a ton of BBQ options in the Austin area, and Rudy's is absolutely one of the best around. The Brisket is amazing and so full of flavor. We also enjoyed the Spicy Chop. One huge plus at Rudy's relative to some of the more known and popular BBQ stops- (i.e. Franklin) is that you aren't going to be... More

Wow - what a meal that is where you want to eat Texas BBQ! Brisket was sooo tender you don't need a knife and the Ribs were falling off the bone.

I have tried few BBQ places in Texas and without a shadow of doubt Rudy's is the best place outside of my kitchen (my Texan husband has a customized BBQ "deal" and an incredible technique). I highly recommend this place! My second delight in there is the potato salad... Ok, I must say, this one is the best I have... More

Rudy's "Cutter's Choice" is the way to go for brisket that's neither dry nor fatty.You can sample. Potato salad good. Coleslaw could be a bit more tasty. Banana pudding great. (When I moved here from CA 32 years ago, a BBQ was a piece of metal you cooked on.) Brisket or other meat is served on torn off pieces of... More
