No visit to Austin would be complete without a trip to Rudy's for outstanding barbecue beef brisket. The Rudy's in Round Rock is no exception. The brisket, available in either lean or moist, has an excellent dry rub crust on the beef that will melt in your mouth. The moist is our favorite. Excellent sides as well. Add a piece... More

This place is really great for their famous brisket. You have to try it and also their breakfast tacos and their different options are great as well.

While not in the premier level (eg Franklin's, Black's), this is pretty consistent and they make it easy to order brisket with the amount of fat/flavor you like. Several kinds of pork ribs, turkey, chicken too. Sides are decent. My go to place when I don't want to deal with driving into Austin or Lockhart.

It's the only place I eat BBQ. I started eating Rudy's at the original in Leon Springs in 1994. Chains dont usually do as well as the original but in this case they have outdone themselves.

If you've ever eaten at Rudys then you know this is some of the best BBQ around. The staff is quick and efficient, the restaurant is clean, and the food is awesome!!! Their wares include brisket of course, hot and mild smoked sausage, turkey, chicken, and some wonderful homemade sides. A little expensive but not too terrible and bottom line... More

This is considered by me as Fast Food Bar-B-Q but it's pretty good. I wouldn't put it above the Family owned spots in Taylor/Elgin/Llano or Lockhart but it seems like a lot of people like it..........

I stopped by Rudy's and had a tasty chopped brisket taco for breakfast. They had a condiment station set up and you could just grab the tacos and take them with you. Very good!
