“Rudy's provides consistently good BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

We have lived in Austin nearly 20 years. We really enjoy BBQ but since we've had to cut back on meat for health reasons, we pick and choose carefully. The only 2 places we will have BBQ in Austin are Rudy's and County Line. Rudy's is more convenient, and having had their BBQ in 3 locations, I can say they have mastered the art of consistency in BBQ. We've been to the Round Rock, 620, and 183 Rudy's and all are excellent. I am wild about the sausage links, and lean brisket while my wife prefers the moist brisket. The cole slaw is very good (although not as good as County Line, which is the BEST!) but the buttered potatoes are to die for at Rudy's. We really love the atmosphere, so rustic and friendly, you cant not make friends there.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Not bad but had better Rudy's in other locations. Food quality was good but seating and location not great.

“Who would have thought delicious bar-b-que at a gas station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Rudy's is a great treat! The moist brisket is so good. The sauce is tastey and unique. My son gave this sauce as a hostess gift for a wedding shower and everyone was thrilled. Breakfast tacos are not your ordinary tacos. The spicy meat is a great addition to any taco. All of the barbque meats are moist and delicious and the sides are great. Casual dining adds to the meal...you sit family style at long tables with paper squares for plates. This is a place you will go again and again. This property is especially clean and very friendly staff. Easy access from the Interstate.

“Some of the best BBQ in Texas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

Most people who travel through Texas or better yet, live there, know about Rudy's. These red gas station with big smokers in the back have some of the best bbq available in Texas. Extra Moist brisket is our favorite. However, they have excellent smoked turkey, ribs, and sausage. Their cream corn is the best I've ever had and their beans are exceptional. Decent banana pudding available in the cooler just before you reach the order desk. Enjoy, y'all.

“Unique atmosphere and great food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

Picnic tables make up the furniture in this restaurant. People line up to make their order. When the cashier found out we were on our first visit, she offered us free samples of several items. When she found out we were Canadian, she told their Canadian employee, who came over to talk to us. Talk out friendly! We took baby back ribs and smoke turkey, with sides of beans and cole slaw. The restaurant gives butcher paper to use as plates. We ate with plastic cutlery. "Napkin" dispensers are available at several locations in the restaurant. There was a large bottle of the restaurant's own Bar-B-Q sauce, which was delicious.
