Sales team went here after golf outing for dinner. Cafeteria style service. The brisket, pulled pork,sausage and creamed corn were excellent. Tried someone's potato salad and it hit the mark also. Very casual dining experience. Great BBQ!! I'll be back and you should come try it too.

Totally wild ! this place is the craziest place in town. Food is plentiful, plates are huge. When we where there they held a contest on meat carving between the chefs. The BBQ sauces where so good we brought a few bottles back home with us in Montreal. Totally nailed the "ranch" ambiance.

Really enjoyed our business lunch here. Tasty ribs, good slaw, sorry I missed the corn. The bbq sauce is really top shelf. Very reasonable prices. You might need a nap after lunch.... Just sayin'

Don't be put off by the fact that this is a "chain" restaurant. Everything is first rate; meats, beans, potato salad, coleslaw, BBQ sauce, etc. Lots of condiments. Quality food. Very tasty rub on all the smoked meats. Rudy's is my personal favorite for the flavor of smoked BBQ. When I think BBQ, Rudy's is what I want. I can... More

This is some of the best BBQ we've ever eaten. Their creamed corn is absolutely addictive. Service is good and the restaurant is family style and lots of fun. We've eaten here several times and every time, it is delicious. And they honor Veterans.

We tried the moist brisket, ribs and sausage - all were excellent. The creamed corn and the bean are also a must! Casual ambiance, great food, reasonably priced for the quality and quantity of food you get.

Everyone in Austin has a recommendation for the best barbecue. Rudy's was the choice of a local shop owner & it definitely is among the best. Behind a gas station just off the highway, this is a help yourself, sit at a common table place. The food is great, big portions, & the people who dish out the food are... More

OK, I have to admit that I stopped cooking brisket since Rudy's is around. Too convenient and cheaper than I can do at home, however I can still augment with my own chicken, Sausage, ribs and sides. Not to say that the RCS Hotty isn't good, because it is. Sauce is another success story (I like meat without sauce) My... More

Rudy's is always a reliable place to take the family for barbecue. The double-sided ribs are fantastic and don't forget to pick up some of the creamed corn! All the family can relax and just enjoy the being together and eating good food.
