“Great food and experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Traveling from California, Texas friends introduced me to Rudy's. What a fun and delicious experience. Immediately loved the look of the place, a real family, let's all sit together, atmosphere. Being it was our first time, the gal at the counter took time to provide the wife and me samples. Even with a line of people behind us. Texas hospitality.
The extra moist brisket was a hit. We also tried the St.Lewis ribs and prime rib. All mighty tasty. You order by weight like at a butcher, unique. We added Hot Potatoes, red potatoes in butter, lots of butter.
If you want a quiet intimate place to eat then Rudy's is for another time. But if good food and good talk is the occasion then Rudy's is it.
Oh, they have a great variety of bottled sodas to pick from or do the typical fountain drinks.
Rudy's is absolutely a great experience in family dining. I can't imagine any Texans not knowing about this place.

“Whenever I can!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Love Rudy's! Sure Franklin and Muellers are great, but if you want quick and good BBQ, it can't be beat! Lean Brisket, Pork Loin and Creamed Corn are my favorites! Only suggestion is to take the High Fructose Corn Syrup OUT of your BBQ Sauce!

“Excellent Barbecue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Whether beef brisket, chicken or ribs, or sausage, this is where I'd send you for authentic Texas barbecue......there are similar places in town that are uber-hyped and have either long....read hours and hours....wait times, or are just average food at best. I grew up in a small Texas town, and this is as close as you'll get in Austin City Limits to the real deal. It can be crowded and noisy....and the outside area, can be very hot in the summer months. Plenty of parking, at both sides and in the lot in back of the building, this location is on the service road of IH 35 and can easily be seen.
Enter through the front and note the staggered line to the right. Pick up your sides from the refrigerated case as you pass, and step up to the counter to order and pay. Condiments at the end of the line near the front.

“pour on that hot sauce”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Excellent BBQ place, you can't go wrong with anything you choose. Whatever you choose, don't miss the sauce. The hot BBQ sauce is great. Take some home with you. I always do, even if its the small containers, specially if you have take away or leftovers.
