Visited in a wheelchair. Struggled to get to counter. I mentioned my trouble with the guys behind the counter. They laughed! Then they offered to take down chain. Ordered. No offer to help get stuff to table. I was on my own. Food was great! The sauce makes the meat.

The brisket can be hit or miss (sometimes a little too fatty) so be sure to ask the person who is trimming to cut to your specifications. Peppery sauce is very good and the sides do not disappoint. Fresh breakfast tacos are some of the best in town.

The BBQ Brisket is delicious. I also recommend the smoked sausage and creamed corn. The portions are gargantuan! BBQ sauce is also very good. Would go here again.

We eat at Rudy's every time we visit our daughter in Austin, Texas! Rudy's is very casual and their beef brisket is lean and delicious. They have outstanding turkey, Cole slaw, red skin potatoes, creamed corn and it is all great! Rudy's offers great carry out as well. We highly recommend going their if you have never been there.

I hate the barbecue sauce but the barbecue is awesome! If you have not been and it is your first time going make sure you mention that because there is a surprise waiting for you. I don't like the beans there for some of the other sides but all the meat and I mean all of the meat is so... More

When you go up to the counter to order, make sure to tell them if you've never been there before. They'll bring you samples so that you can be sure you like what you order. The food is awesome and the employees friendly and helpful. Be sire to bring your appetite with you.

We stopped here on a trip to Austin and I have to say it was the best BBQ we had the whole trip! The turkey was the best I've ever eaten and the other meats were all excellent as well. It's the perfect place for a quick and inexpensive lunch.

Thank Allyssa B
