As 1st time visitors the cashier offered us samples of 2 types of the brisket, pulled pork, sliced turkey and the creamed corn. I've always heard that in Texas BBQ means beef. We should have listened. Ordered a full rack of baby backs and the moist brisket. The ribs were okaaaaay. But, the brisket was GREAT! The coleslaw was unremarkable... More

Rudy's BBQ meat is always cooked to perfection. Can't leave without a bottle of their sauce, and we ship it to family members who don't make it back for a "dine in" often enough. The only negative is that their prices are a little high. Especially on the cream corn that we love.

I was in Austin visiting clients and when asked about BBQ, they pointed me to Rudy's. Is it a GAS STATION? Yes, and it serves BBQ too, WHAT!!!! SWEET!!!! Great and friendly service made me felt welcome. As the first timer, they will give you few samples to try out before you make a decision. I got the ribs and... More

I usually have the breakfast tacos but the moist brisket is pretty good for a chain place. It is always reliable for decent BBQ.

Quick service and delicious BBQ. Love Rudy's! Casual and fun. My favorites are the baby back ribs, meat just falls off the bone. Delicious, moist brisket so good. Favorite sides are the creamed corn and spicy beans. No room for banana pudding so get it to go.

This place is setup as cafeteria style, in that you walk along a counter and order up your main meat dish and then some side dishes! Before you do that, you'll pass the bottled drink bins that are usually full of various sodas or beer under ice! They also have the usual soda fountain, if you're not into bottled drinks,... More

We had the turkey and the lean beef brisket. Both were very good. But my favorites were the creamed corn and coleslaw. Delicious!
