    Our group from Wisconsin visited; great service, shout outs as a welcome, and some of the best bar-b-q we've ever eaten. Get cream corn as one of your sides. When in Austin again, we'll be back!

    Awesome extra moist brisket. If you haven't been to Rudy's before then tell them as you're placing the order to sample all meats.

    Get the moist brisket and St. Louis ribs. You cannot go wrong! A plus and friendly staff. If you tell them it's your first time they let you sample the goods!

    Great Texas BBQ - visiting from Australia we were given a full explanation and tasting of food on offer , before we ordered - Delicious Brisket ( Moist ) and Cream Corn mmmmmmm do yourself a favor !

    One of the best BBQ experiences in the area is, yes, in a gas station. Order some extra moist brisket, some sausage, and some turkey and slather it all in some Rudy's sauce.

    If it is your first time going, tell them and they will let you try everything before you order. No matter what you choose, you have to get the cream corn.

    A great representation of TX BBQ. The pork loin is a under appreciated option here worth a 1/4 pound to taste. You will order it again

    Extra moist brisket is a must! Appreciated the Rookie sampler (tell 'em it's your first time). Ran out of Big Red, def a bummer. Would return!

    Dog friendly tip: note that dogs are not allowed on the patio, but there is a great, big picnic area behind it for you and your pooch.

    Simply awesome barbeque, be it ribs, brisket or sausage. We go whenever we have guests from out of state because it's so Texas and never disappoints.

    Not fancy, but reliably tasty BBQ served by friendly folks. I always go with the moist brisket and sausage. The creamed corn is my go-to side.

    Great BBQ for a gas station....County Line is better but being from the north any BBQ is better than what we have... Nice people though very friendly. I with the stop...for sure!

    This is a must-go in Austin. Our cashier Shaq may have been the nicest man I've ever met. And don't forget to wash your hands in the hand wash machine.

    Consistanly one of the best BBQ places around! My fave is the brisket extra leas and lots of black. Cream corn and beans are great too. It would be nice to have more seating with A/C.

    1/2 pound brisket... extra lean is awesome, but if you don't mind the fat, then go for cutter's choice... and get some creamed corn behind the counter!

    Order a half pound of anything, then ask for a loaf of bread. Explain you eat one piece of meat per bread and theyll look at you funny then give you enough bread to feed you all week. The end...

    I've tried just about all of Austin's BBQ, and trust me, if you can get here, it's the BEST. Go "Cutter's Choice" and St. Louis style Ribs with Beans. Buy a bottle of "Sause" to go!

    Get the cutter's choice (not too dry, not too fatty), it is just right. Also, pickup a dublin Dr. Pepper. Way better than a normal dp.
