“Texas BBQ, sticky fingers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Great Texas BBQ but what's what and how to order are a bit confusing for a first time non-US visitor, so try to go with someone who's been before if possible. Otherwise the staff will do their best to explain what's going on.

Good food and well priced. Rudy's BBQ sauce is (probably) world famous it's that good!

“Good BBQ..Always!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We've been picking up Rudy's BBQ at least once a month for 12 years now and the meat is great. Not a fan of the potato salad, but the beans rock. Great brisket and sausage. I give it a solid 4 outta 5 ;)

“Fun barbecue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Heaps of brisket, ribs, sausage, turkey, served in baskets on "plates" of something like parchment paper. I was glad the meat did not come slathered in sauce, you add it to your own taste. Well worth the drive.

“Real Texas barbecue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

You haven't been to Texas until you've been to Rudy's. I had ribs, sausage and brisket. Real friendly atmosphere with picnic tables. Family friendly and very good food. The creamed corn and coleslaw went perfect for sides. I totally recommend anyone visiting Austin to be sure they go to Rudy's.
