Although Rudys is a chain BBQ restaurant (and brags as being the "worst BBQ in Texas") it is the perfect place to experience some of the best BBQ in Texas. It is often overlooked by the critics, but is certainly a great stop. I've eaten at a few other Rudy's and they are good, but this one in Round Rock... More

Great location - right off the Interstate -- good food -- it is attached to a gas station - so there is sitting outside - though the smell of exhaust makes it not very practical -- typical Rudy's -- you line up and order your meat and sides - they cut it and weigh for you then you grab a... More

Rudy´s is the most texan restaurant I ever go. It´s very simple environment and I guess this is their secret. Food is simply awesome and staff is very friendly. I feel myself a texan when I go there.

Purchased a 'chunk' of BBQ for a gift. It was raved about by kinfolk that have never had any of Rudy's BBQ. Matter of fact, they were in New Mexico so they just are out of reach but said they will not miss Rudy's when they visit Central Texas.

Our go to place when we are in Austin. Pick up your sides, order and watch them cut your delicous smoked meats, and ENJOY. MAybe not quite as good as Franklins, but they are always open, don't run out and have a great place to sit and watch.

Who would've thought there would be a great restaurant in a truck stop/gas station!!! The brisket, sausage and turkey were amazing!! I was a little confused about ordering, but once done, we totally enjoyed our visit!

This was my first time eating at Rudy's. The atmosphere is really laid back. I loved the aroma of the smoked meat and watching the carving on a big screen. It was set up well for ordering and even though it was crowded, the line moved fast. The manager was very friendly and came around talking with people. The best... More

For a high volume BBQ joint. They have it down to a science. Their brisket is really good. Their service is excellent. It's just good BBQ. Plastic forks and butcher paper for a plate. It's great Texas BBQ.

For people unfamiliar with Rudy's... this is not just a place to get gas when driving through town. People will love the BBQ.
