I have to go to Rudy’s every time that I come back to Austin and every time I go, the food is great and the service is fantastic. What a great place to try everything on the menu. You will not be let down.

When I first arrived in Austin, I pulled into the Rudy's BBQ joint on Research Blvd (183)....and promptly pulled out when I saw the gas pumps in front of the store...what kind of BBQ joint sells gasoline? Well, when going to lunch with my co-workers, it didn't take too long and we were eating at Rudy's on a regular basis.

The BBQ is consistent. Their 1/2 Chicken is my favorite, always moist and full of smoky flavor. Spicy Links and Brisket are also dependably and consistently good. The BBQ table sauce is a little spicy (lots of pepper) and so I have learned that less is more in that area.

They also have great breakfast tacos!

So I'm rating the value a 3 - $18/pound for brisket is a little pricey to me!
