Super friendly, knowledgeable service--they love rookies, they love their food, and they love sharing their love! We enjoyed the moist brisket the most among the meat selection. The creamed corn and banana pudding were excellent accompaniments. This trip was our first in Austin and first...More

When I stop into the store on Loop 360 for gas, food or beer I feel as if I’m transported to another time in Texas. Although the stores just outside the city, Country music playing and smells make me think of the Hill Country 30...More

We have only visited the Frisco, Texas location but it’s always clean, the staff is always friendly and helpful and the food is delicious. Family friendly, rustic decor and casual. Definitely recommend!

We thought that this would be better food. It was not great,but we were expecting more. Good pulled pork and ribs. Brisket was so so. Green Chile stew was phenomenal though.

Rudy's is very consistent. I have to a few. The BBQ is good. No complaints. My only issue is the price. I'm Round Rock there are two BBQ restaurants just down I35 that are equally as good for about half the price.

We think the barbecue at Rudy's is excellent. It's unusual for a barbecue restaurant to have such good potato salad beans, Etc. We highly recommend.
