Weird environment when we pulled in but glad it didn’t deter us from going in and enjoying some great BBQ. Had the Moist Brisket and Chicken both were great! I’d recommend also the creamed corn as a hot side.

And the tenth or twentieth one too! This was the first place I had the wonderful smoked brisket that gives Texas BBQ its fame. Rudy's has the best sauce around. Clean, casual communal tables both inside and out. Automatic handwasher is a must use. I...More

Rudy's is a classic Austin BBQ restaurant and a must visit. It is great BBQ and the locations are very unique - you buy the BBQ by the pound and the sides separate, and eat on paper. You can also buy the BBQ sauce by...More
