If you ever get the opportunity to stop at Rudy's Bar-B-Q, whether in Austin, Texas or another franchise location, STOP! Great meats, cooked just right, the smell alone will make your mouth water. We have introduced many friends to Rudy's and never been disappointed.

Nice casual atmosphere mixed with great food. The turkey is a touch dry but has excellent flavor. The barbecue sauce is terrific as well.

The BBQ is really good, it's also spicy! To balance out I get the creamed corn, best I've ever had!!! Iced tea cold and plentiful, as is beer. The breakfast tacos are out of this world,tasty!

Excellent business model - no surprises - consistently good BBQ and service. Always a fun crowd with fast friendly and helpful service every time.

Whether eating there or taking home - brisket, ribs and sausage are favorites along with fresh cole slaw and potato salad.. the creamed corn should be outlawed - seriously addictive! Let's not forget the super soft white bread - yeah I know - but ya gotta have white bread with BBQ - why else go??

Simply stated, this probably was the best BBQ experience of my life... and there have been many BBQ experiences. The brisket was flavorful, moist, and almost unworldly good. The turkey was so moist and delicious that they have to do something to it more than brining... it's above my pay-grade to understand; I just know it was great. We initially started off with just brisket, but because they gave us samples when ordering, we stood back in line to get turkey because who knows when we might get turkey that good again in our lives (we were just visiting Austin on a weekend trip). Basically, if you don't try this place, you will have missed what might have been one of the best gastronomic experiences that Texas can provide, heck that North America can provide. (PS: Try the creamed corn... just trust me on that.)
